Dossiê – Chamada de Artigos

CHAMADA DE ARTIGOS

Cross-disciplinary approaches to the study of knowledge-making in the early modern world (1450–1800)

Gostaríamos de convidar propostas de artigos para preparação de dossiê sobre abordagens multidisciplinares no estudo das formas de produção de saber na Época Moderna global (1450–1800). O dossiê será proposto a periódicos acadêmicos de língua inglesa relevantes para a área de estudos sobre a Época Moderna, com enfoque em história da ciência e história intelectual, ao final de 2019.

Buscamos propostas de artigos originais de doutorandos/as e recém-doutores/as, com grau outorgado há até 5 anos da data de envio da proposta. O tema dos artigos propostos deve encaixar-se no amplo escopo geográfico mundial e tratar de formas de produção de saber entre 1450 e 1800. Em continuidade à premissa da conferência sobre o mesmo tema realizada em Londres, em 2017, sob financiamento da London Arts and Humanities Partnership, nosso principal objetivo é promover a multidisciplinaridade na pesquisa sobre a Época Moderna e a perspectiva global tanto no escopo dos objetos pesquisados, como no contexto dos/as pesquisadores/as.

Este dossiê objetiva, ainda, entender como a multidisciplinaridade é usada atualmente no estudos sobre a Época Moderna e mostrar como novas perspectivas de pesquisa podem aproximar disciplinas atualmente separadas no Ensino Superior; divulgar pesquisas multidisciplinares contemporâneas de doutorandos/as e jovens pesquisadores/as de diferentes partes do mundo no meio acadêmico anglófono do Norte Global; explicitar diferenças e semelhanças entre variadas abordagens teórico-metodológicas contemporâneas; e promover debates sobre os usos da multidisciplinaridade na pesquisa sobre a Época Moderna global.

Nós encorajamos propostas de artigos que abordam a circulação de saberes, objetos, pessoas, técnicas e ideias no período de 1450 a 1800, incluindo temas como saberes espaciais e visuais; línguas; etnografia; cultura material; gênero; raça e racismo; religião; colonialismo e formação de impérios; ideias e práticas políticas, jurídicas e econômicas.

Prazos:

15/06/19 – Resumo expandido do artigo (1.000 palavras)

30/06/19 – Confirmação dos artigos selecionados e envio da proposta de dossiê para os periódicos relevantes

01/09/19 – Artigo completo (10.000–12.000 palavras)

Instruções de envio:

Resumos e artigos devem ser escritos em língua inglesa e enviados em formato de arquivo de texto com título provisório, 5 palavras-chave, biografia resumida e CV completo do/a autor/a para earlymodernknowledgemaking@gmail.com.

Aviso:

Esta é uma chamada de artigos para proposta posterior de dossiê a periódicos de língua inglesa relevantes para os estudos sobre Época Moderna, com foco em história da ciência e história intelectual. Portanto, as condições e prazos de aceite do dossiê dependem da disponibilidade dos periódicos.

Call for papers- Special issue

CALL FOR PAPERS

Cross-disciplinary approaches to the study of knowledge-making in the early modern world (1450–1800)

Following the successful student-led conference held in October 2017 in London under the sponsorship of the London Arts and Humanities Partnership, we seek unpublished and original papers on the theme of cross-disciplinarity and forms of knowledge-making in the early modern world. The papers will compose a special issue to be pitched to leading journals of early modern studies in English, particularly in the fields of history of science and intellectual history, at the end of 2019.

We invite papers from PhD candidates in the final stage of their degree and early career researchers (within 5 years of doctoral award by the time of submission). The papers should fit into the broad geographical scope of forms of knowledge-making around the world between 1450 and 1800. In continuity with the premise of the conference, our main goal is to promote cross-disciplinarity as a methodology and a global perspective both in the scope of the subject of the papers and the academic context of the papers’ authors.

This special issue aims at understanding how cross-disciplinarity is used in current early modern studies and the fresh perspectives it can bring to disciplines long closed-off within an internationally unequal academic system; highlighting results of cross-disciplinary research conducted by PhD candidates and early career researchers; amplifying such research within the established Anglophone academic journal universe; putting forward the similarities and differences between the various contemporary intellectual frameworks of the authors’ research; and furthering debates on the importance of cross-disciplinary research of the early modern world.

We particularly encourage papers that highlight the flows of knowledge, as objects, peoples, techniques, and ideas in the period, including but not limited to the themes of visual and spatial studies; languages; ethnography; material culture; gender; race and racism; religion; colonialism and empire-making; political, juridical, and economic thought and practices.

Deadlines:

15/06/19 – Expanded abstract (1,000 words)

30/06/19 – Announcement of selected proposals and pitch of special issue to relevant journals

01/09/19 – Full draft of the paper (10,000–12,000 words)

How to submit your article proposal:

Abstracts and full articles should be written in English and sent with a working title and 5 keywords to earlymodernknowledgemaking@gmail.com.

Please include the author’s short biography and a full CV.

Please note this is a call for papers for a further proposal of a special issue to leading journals of early modern studies, particularly in the field of history of science and intellectual history. Therefore, timescales could be substantial owing to the availability and appointments of these institutions.

Cross-disciplinary approaches to the study of knowledge-making in the early modern world (1450-1800)

Deadline: 7th July 2017


With the support of the London Arts & Humanities Partnership (LAHP), the Dr Williams Library (London) will host a student-led interdisciplinary conference on the overlap, cross-fertilisation, and collaborative potential between the Humanities and Social Sciences across studies on the history of knowledge-making in the early modern world (1450-1800), 14th October 2017.

The conference is open to all PhD candidates from any department within Arts & Humanities and Social Sciences in the United Kingdom.

Submissions with studies of knowledge-making in the early modern world (1450-1800) from a wide range of fields are welcome, such as Legal, Political, Social, Cultural, Intellectual, Environmental and Economic History; Global, Imperial and World History; History of Science, Medicine and Technology; Digital Humanities; Linguistics and Literary Studies; History of Art and History of Architecture; Anthropology and Sociology; Cultural and Historical Geography; Performance, Gender and Queer Studies. We particularly encourage topics that highlight the circulation and transmission of knowledge in the period, including but not limited to:

  • Visual knowledge and spatial representation
  • Natural philosophy, Botany, Mathematical sciences
  • Languages
  • Ethnography
  • Religion and Jurisprudence
  • Colonialism and imperialism
  • Political and economic thought

The aims of the conference are to deepen the understanding of how a certain type of cross-disciplinarity already characterised knowledge-making along cultural encounters in an expanding world from c.1415 onwards; to highlight how PhD students use cross-disciplinary approaches to better understand their primary sources and the contemporary intellectual framework within which their research is situated; and to promote similar events and future collaborations among the panellists and the audience.


Keynote speaker:

Dr Zoltán Biedermann (Senior Lecturer in Luso Brazilian Studies, University College London)
