Connections. Global and Transnational History Seminar | Session II: The Ethiopic Ocean: History and historiography
Praia de Botafogo, 190. Fundação Getulio Vargas - 01/04/2015 - 14:00 - 16:00

In recent decades, under the title of "global" or "transnational", new historiographical debates and theoretical and methodological approaches of the social sciences take shape reflecting the new globalization phenomenon. Research in the North and South of the so-called Western World have known new dilemas and revaluated the connections between societies, cultures and spaces that were previously underestimated or simply disregarded.

The School of Social Sciences of FGV and the Center for International Relations organize this four-session seminar in order to create a forum for discussions between different research practices on the subject and to promote dialogue and exchange of experiences among researchers in this field, contributing to a greater internationalization of the Brazilian academic production.

The Ethiopic Ocean: History and historiography - 1600-1975

Professor Luiz Felipe de Alencastro, from the São Paulo School of Economics of FGV will give the second lecture, presenting his article The Ethiopic Ocean: History and historiography - 1600-1975 (Portuguese Literary & Cultural Studies, n. 27, 2015, p. 1-79), followed by a debate session by professor Ynaê Lopes dos Santos from CPDOC.

Alencastro graduated at the University Aix-en-Provence in France and he has a PhD in Modern and Contemporary History from the University of Paris X. He was a professor at the University of Rouen for 10 years and, after that time, he became a professor in Economic History at the Institute of Economics of UNICAMP. He was professor of Brazilian History at University of Paris - Sorbonne (2000 - 2014).

The event will take place on April 1st, from 2pm to 4pm at the auditorium 1014 - 10th floor.
