Seminario Iberoamericano de Investigação em Museologia, 27, 28 e 29 de Out. 2011

juillet 28, 2011

Em Outubro (27, 28 e 29) realiza-se o III Seminário Iberoamericano de Investigação em Museologia (SIAM). Esta iniciativa é da responsabilidade conjunta da Universidade do Porto e da Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.

O programa provisório já está disponível (http://www.siam2011.eu/) e conta com a presença significativa de investigadores portugueses.

Objectivos:

Este seminário tem como principal objetivo o aprofundamento da reflexão e das práticas de investigação no campo da museologia, relacionando diferentes disciplinas e perspectivas, participando activamente na construção de uma comunidade de práticas que apoie a discussão e o desenvolvimento de projetos de investigação comuns. Entende-se a prática museológica como um saber aplicado que precisa igualmente de um desenvolvimento académico e de investigação, de um desenvolvimento profissional e de um desenvolvimento dos contextos de gestão pública e privada. Estos três âmbitos estão cada vez mais próximos e interrelacionados e precisam do mesmo nível de rigor científico, reflexão crítica, responsabilidade social e abordagem sustentável.

Local Vocabularies of “Heritage”: Variabilities, Negotiations, Transformations, 8-10 Feb. 2012

Local Vocabularies of “Heritage”
Variabilities, Negotiations, Transformations,

8-10th February 2012

and Network of Researchers on Heritagisations

Call for paper
Dead-line 1st of June 2011

Concern for “heritage”, in its French version of “patrimoine” or the Anglo-Saxon one of “heritage”, is often associated with Western cultural history’s originality and the spreading of the values related to it with a universalist and globalizing vocation. But the objects (artifacts, monuments, sites, animals, plant species and social practices) and the uses (memory and identity processes, transmission dynamics, links with the past and with history) today covered by the sphere of the Western “cultural heritage” are sometimes already part of the cultural practices and collective representations of non-Western societies. This plurality of “heritage” conceptions makes it possible to go beyond the rhetorical motif of the “great division” and to better redefine what makes world cultures different and what connects them. Moreover, though all societies do not attribute the same meaning or the same values to their heritage terminology, they are nonetheless part of a recent semantic and conceptual translation process of the international norms propagated by “heritage” institutions.

The difficulty in analyzing the layers and the differentiations of “heritage” vocabularies stems from the fact that international bodies have gradually included in the “heritage” field very different objects (architecture, town planning, art, landscape, environment, languages or practices and social representations) and have thus encouraged the actors to interpret certain local terminologies in terms of “heritage”, even though “tradition”, “culture”, “custom”, “memory” or “transmission” could have been considered autonomously. Moreover, the division of the “heritage” field into “cultural heritage”, “natural heritage” and “intangible heritage” contains in itself a classification of the real which is not directly transferred to social situations and which also obliges local actors to redefine their own categories of thought.

Besides, Western “heritage” terminology is perhaps only pertinent to the extent that the actors themselves assert their right to this vocabulary and use it. This relativistic position makes it possible to speculate on three aspects : firstly, on the terminologies applied to “heritage” type activities already at work locally in cultures outside international frameworks ; secondly, on the translations of the terms “heritage”, “safeguarding”, “preservation”, “restoration”, “valorization” etc. in conceptual negotiations which take place locally and, thirdly, on the differences existing between these two levels and on the incomprehension this disparity creates in the local implementation of programs using international categories.

Is it possible to draw up a comparative inventory of “heritage” notions present throughout human societies? What are the local notions that come into play in the contemporary “heritage” arena? What exactly do these notions cover in the autonomous regions of Europe or in those seeking independence and in the nations resulting from decolonization? How are the meanings and requalifications of vocabulary distributed in minority and fringe groups? To what extent can the heritage field be taken as a vantage point for a society’s historical evolution?

The central idea of this symposium is to carry out an international comparison of vocabulary variants and local linguistic uses of “heritage”, both in the context of contact with international institutions and in the limited one of indigenous and customary uses. The symposium therefore proposes to take seriously the emic definitions and redefinitions of “indigenous terms” and to draw up a critical inventory of them, by going beyond the fiction of a continuous and globalized homogeneous “heritage” field. A comparative analysis and the confrontation of related concepts in the different local vocabularies would also make it possible to get the measure of the transactions, mutations, misunderstandings and transfers that may arise from the global contact initiated in cultural exchanges over the last two centuries.

In this perspective, four main fields of reflection seem to emerge:
1. The variability of “heritage” vocabularies and the social effects of this in different cultural, historical and political contexts. How should we today consider the originality of Western systems of preservation, transmission and archiving and those of “other” cultures?
2. The conceptual negotiations at stake in the adjustments of local terms on a regional, national or international level. How are these negotiations part of the public space of terminological requalification of “heritage” vocabularies and practices, sometimes embodied in the form of “heritage” specialists or collective organizations?
3. The transformations the artifacts go through in the translation and exchange processes. What material changes do heritagized objects and representations have to undergo in order to correspond to local and/or international criteria?
4. The variability of scientific uses of the term “heritage” in academic traditions and the repercussions of this in experts’ practices and in interdisciplinary dialogue.

The symposium is open to all researchers working on the political, cultural, historical and social uses of “heritage”, in a perspective of exchange and interdisciplinary comparison, and able to provide a detailed account of a specific geographical area in order to contribute an element to the group reflection. Working languages will be English, French and Portuguese.

Proposition (250 words, contact details, scientific affiliation and biographical note of 50 words) should be submitted before the 1st of June 2011 to lvh2…@uevora.pt. The results will be made public on the 1st of July 2011.

CONF: « Exhibiting Europe. The Development of European Narratives in Museums, Collections and Exhibitions » Oslo, Interkulturelt

février 17, 2011

Exhibiting Europe. The Development of European Narratives in Museums, Collections and Exhibitions Oslo, Interkulturelt Museum/Intercultural Museum
7-9 April 2011
http://www.ntnu.edu/exhibiting-europe

Europe is more than the EU. However, without the evolution of the present-day EU there would not be the same extensive literature on subjects like Europeanization, conceptualizing cultural processes in the framework of the political and economic integration; on ‘building Europe’, comparing integration critically to nation-building processes of the nineteenth century; or even on European cosmopolitism, contextualizing the same process in the light of European modernity. Especially the disciplines of Social Anthropology, Cultural and Museum Studies and Contemporary History have identified the ongoing and contested Europeanization as an important field of analysis.

This conference aims to bring these disciplines together, linking research on processes of integration, musealisation and Europeanization. The conference will therefore ask if and how discourses on Europeanization are put on display. How do they manifest themselves in permanent and temporary exhibitions? How do they affect the planning of new museums or transform the policies of existing ones? Hence, the economic, political and cultural integration processes largely driven by the European Union will be addressed from three complementary academic perspectives at the conference in Oslo in April 2011. Structured in three panels – ‘Centre and Periphery’, ‘Biographies’ and ‘Objects and Collections’ – this conference will bring together experts from all over Europe and explore the ongoing production of a European narrative and heritage in the museal field.

Moving Image and Institution: Cinema and the Museum in the 21st Century seeks to establish a new international forum for discussion of the physical and theoretical intersections between cinema, screen media and the moving image, and the museum and institutional art space. This international, interdisciplinary conference will run alongside a range of public events in and around Cambridge in early July, to draw attention to the converging interests of both Cinema and the Museum.

Attracting academic speakers, museum professionals and artists across the spectrum of the Arts and Humanities from a range of disciplines and sectors including film studies, museum studies, architecture, history of art, modern languages, cultural geography, anthropology, ethnography and archaeology, the conference will offer an exceptional environment where cross-connections can be fostered between these fields, in order to interrogate the future shape of the very cultural institutions in which they are so heavily invested.

Cinema and the Museum have a shared heritage of historical and socio-cultural development. Both emergent in the late 19th century as public institutions, but with very different infrastructures, the public concerns of the cinema and the museum have established them firmly within the cultural imaginary of many of the key dynamics of the 20th century – from popular spectacle to Futurism, from Surrealism to the emergence of the post-colonial world, from the avant-gardes to the aftermath of total war, from the information network to the cusp of the virtual world. Both Cinema and the Museum share an ambivalent relationship between the past and the future: while safeguarding, documenting and archiving the past is a part of their shared role, the shifting technologies and modalities of cinema and the museum are also instantiating fundamental changes to what constitutes the very concepts of ‘Cinema’ or ‘The Museum’. In the 21st century museums have become extraordinary ‘laboratories of change’; audio-visual media have permeated the museum space: from handheld devices to large screen projections, to interactive technologies at the intersections of material and digital culture. Cinema is entering the Museum, and the Museum is disseminating itself within the cinematic as a means of expanding its engagement with the public on multiple levels, including but certainly not limited to notions of viewing experience, immersion and object- interaction.

The conference organisers welcome the submission of abstracts for a 20 minute paper, or a 10 minute moving image/lens-based media presentation + 10 minute talk. Presentations should not exceed 20 minutes in total. The organisers would also welcome proposals for roundtables or structured discussion from groups of 2-4 museum professionals, artists or other practitioners.

The call for submissions is open to academics, curators, museum professionals, filmmakers and artists and all others with professional interests in this emerging field. The focus of these papers is not limited to the contemporary period: presentations may choose to explore earlier case studies or period with a contemporary methodology, for example.
It is anticipated that a publication will arise from this conference.

Topics may include, but are not limited to the following themes:

– Creative geographies
– Transformative spaces of the cinematic
– Film and moving image installations
– Proto-cinematic technologies and the museum
– Visual narratives in cultural institutions
– Materiality and digital media
– Sociological trajectories in cinema and in the museum space
– The role of the public institution in moving image practice
– Exhibition practices and cinematic exhibition
– Curatorial practice in the new museum
– Cinema and the new museology
– Ethnographic film
– Filming the archive and archiving the film
– Performative spaces and screen language
– The Virtual Museum Film and user/visitor experience
– Audio-visual mediation and the presence of the screen in the museum space
– Museums on film
– Museums and genre cinema
– Period film and questions of authenticity
– Museums, memorials and commemoration: display and exposure

Abstracts of not more than 250 words should be directed to jlgc3@cam.ac.uk with the subject heading « CINEMA AND THE MUSEUM CONFERENCE » no later than 18 February 2011.

Where applicable please include two lines on your institutional affiliation and details of technical requirements.

XI UMAC Annual Meeting, 21-24 Sept 2011, Lisboa

janvier 31, 2011

XI UMAC Annual Meeting 2011

Museum of Science, University of Lisbon

21-24 September 2011

– CALL FOR PAPERS –

For its XI Annual Meeting – UMAC 2011 – the International Committee of ICOM for University Museums and Collections invites submissions of papers on issues related to university museums and collections worldwide. The theme of UMAC 2011 is ‘University Museums and Collections: University History and Identity’, though papers on other topics are welcomed too. Graduate students are especially encouraged to attend.

The Programme will include visits to the Universities of Lisbon, Porto and Coimbra, plus an Open Session about Portuguese University Museums and Collections (September 20).

‘University Museums and Collections | University History and Identity’

Collections and museums of university history typically present memorabilia, portraits of former professors, institutional uniforms, and seals and sceptres. Likewise, intangible university heritage has been limited to the whole array of academic and student culture and traditions. However, in a broader and more interesting sense, university history is the history of innovation and creativity. Intangible university heritage is in fact more appropriately related to our collective memory of knowledge. Ever since the Renaissance, university museums and collections mirror the development of knowledge in the different sciences, humanities and the arts. Since the nineteenth century, and more particularly during the twentieth century, university museums across the world have also reflected a wider role played by universities in the public sphere. Today, the public sphere is the main rationale for many university museums, which are important vehicles for university public relations in local communities or at a national scale.

The creation, recognition, management, and closure of museums and collections have been shaped and are still being shaped by what universities think about themselves, knowledge and society.

How have university museums and collections reflected fluctuations in teaching, research and university identity? How much impact has an increasingly relevant university social role in university museums in the past and present? How have universities used their museums as vehicles for social and cultural affirmation? What impact does this have on collections policies, public exhibitions and educational programmes?

Paper presentations are limited to 20 minutes, including 5 minutes for discussion.
The conference language is English.

Please send abstract proposals of no more than 200 words to the email address below before 15 April 2011.
Use abstract template at:

Include a short biography highlighting main research interests (no more than 50 words).

Preliminary Announcement

Commonwealth Association of Museums (CAM)

Commonwealth Museums: Culture, Economy and Climate Change

May 2011

Organized by the Commonwealth Association of Museums in partnership with the Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM), Singapore

(to be confirmed)

This 5 day program will feature two main theme sessions, CAM’s Triennial meeting and Singapore museum excursions.

Themes

Part 1: Museums, Culture, and Sustainable Development

Part I will address the need for museums to play a lead role in promoting culture as means of social and economic development, using Putting Culture First and the Commonwealth Statement on Culture and Development as discussion documents. This conference will expand on the productive discussions of Putting Culture First at the GCAM4 meeting (October 2009) in Stanger, South Africa. As in Africa, the rich diversity of cultures in South-East Asian and South Pacific nations is faced with challenges from globalization, migration and urbanization. Part 1 will highlight these issues and explore ways in which museums can not only help preserve cultural heritage, both tangible and intangible, but also promote traditional and contemporary culture as resources for sustainable development.

Part 2: World Watch Two: Conserving Cultures in the Face of Climate Change

Part 2 will focus directly on the need for museums as cultural organisations to use the links between culture and development to play a role in addressing both general issues of climate change and its specific impact on cultural continuity. As a follow up to World Watch One in Guyana and with added impetus from the CHOGM communiqué of November 2009, World Watch Two will examine the growing global impact of climate change on the human (i.e., threats to cultural heritage and property, migration pressures and economic issues) and the natural environment, including potentially extensive land submersion, particularly South Asia and the South Pacific. This session is intended to build on the theme of culture and development, with an emphasis on the ramifications of climate change on the protection of land, livelihoods, cultural diversity and property, tangible and intangible. This session will feature case studies chosen to encourage an action-oriented series of discussions that will lead to a suggested common action plan for museums.

Location and Rationale:

To be held in Singapore as a continuation of CAM’s efforts to hold programs in all regions of the Commonwealth. Singapore is a transportation hub more easily accessed by countries in South-East Asian and the South Pacific. Singapore has exemplary museums featuring wide cultural diversity.

In addition to museum visits, the two main sessions and their emphasis on museums effectively engaging in civil society, the conference will provide an opportunity for CAM to discuss its updated Distance Learning Program in Museum Studies, both the print and online versions, and its Cultural Property Project. The Singapore conference will also host CAM’s triennial general meeting including elections.

Conference program builds on Canberra conference of 2006 organized by the Australian National University to which CAM contributed, World Watch One, Guyana, 2008 and the 4th GCAM conference, South Africa, 2009.

Call for Papers:

Speakers are invited to submit proposals for papers, case studies, and/or full panels on topics ranging from:

• ways in which museums can not only help preserve cultural heritage, both tangible and intangible, but also promote traditional and contemporary culture as resources for sustainable development to

• what role museums—science museums, natural history museums and natural heritage sites, as well as cultural museums—can play to help deal with issues arising from climate change

Proposals are invited from all disciplines. The proposal package should include a summary of 150-200 words and a two-page CV. Proposals should be received by 15 February 2011.

Au-delà du consensus patrimonial. Anthropologie des résistances aux patrimonialisations

octobre 7, 2010

Au-delà du consensus patrimonial. Anthropologie des résistances aux patrimonialisations
Première journée d’étude du réseau des chercheurs sur les patrimonialisations

4 et 5 novembre 2010

Maison Méditerranéenne des Sciences de l’Homme
Salle Duby
Aix-en-Provence (France)

Nous assistons à d’importants mouvements de mise en patrimoine portés par des institutions légitimées par le pouvoir politique. Une longue tradition scientifique a mis en avant le caractère « mécanique », institutionnel et consensuel de ces processus de constructions patrimoniales par les professionnels de la conservation, de la sauvegarde et de la médiation culturelle ou de la gestion des espaces naturels, en analysant leurs pratiques, leur vocabulaire et leurs représentations. Mais un mouvement critique récent des Heritage studies élargit l’approche de ce phénomène en se penchant sur les résistances et les oppositions que de tels processus peuvent susciter. L’image consensuelle du patrimoine en tant que richesse singulière et universelle à valoriser, telle que la véhicule l’Unesco en particulier, ne résiste pas toujours à l’examen des situations concrètes des conditions sociales et historiques de sa création. Cette première journée d’étude du réseau des chercheurs sur les patrimonialisations entend participer à ce questionnement renouvelant la question des patrimonialisations.
