Ricochet Effects: Global Circulations of Cultural Memory Debates

Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
'The aim of this project is for Dr Alison Ribeiro de Menezes to go from University College Dublin, Ireland, to Brown University, USA, for a period of 1 year to gain new expertise in memory debates and cultural exchanges in the Portuguese and Spanish-speaking worlds. She will transfer this to Ireland during a return year of training at University College Dublin, thereby developing a new understanding within the ERA of the global circulation of memory debates. The project addresses memory’s global migrations by shifting attention from nationally based perspectives to a multi-lingual and multi-continental view. Knowledge of identity and memory debates in the Lusophone world (including Portugal, Brazil, Angola, Mozambique, and East Timor) and of Hispanic transatlantic exchanges (particularly between Spain, Argentina, and Chile) gained at Brown will be used to develop a ‘ricochet’ model of transnational cultural exchange. The research foregrounds the contingency of exchange processes involved in memory formation, de-formation, and re-formation; explores the lessons, for the advancement of national and international justice, of the vernacularization of human rights discourses and their role in promoting memory’s cross-cultural migrations; and seeks re-centre cultural memory studies by exploring multidirectional memory in a Luso-Hispanic perspective in order to supplement and deepen prevailing Franco-German theoretical models. Through knowledge transfer activities in the incoming phase, the project will facilitate mutual exchanges between researchers and policy makers in the fields of memory, rights and retrospective justice in the ERA and so enhance research excellence and bridge links between academia and practitioners.'

Assembling the Transpacific: Indigenous Curatorial Practices, Material Cultures and Source Communities

Year 2015
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Since the 18th century, the discipline of anthropology has emerged through scientific exploration and colonial expansion beyond Europe, as well as the establishment of ethnographic collections and museums in Europe. Ethnographic objects thus influenced academic and public understandings of other cultural-geographic spaces. The often resulting Eurocentric projection of anthropological imaginations has come under severe pressure, as e.g. seen in recent indigenous repatriation claims against the Humboldtforum in Germany. Postcolonial renegotiations in former European colonies, such as many South Pacific nations, have caused dramatic changes to anthropological practices through indigenous curatorial practices. Ethnographic objects in European museums, however, remain largely disconnected from the cultural environments of their indigenous producers and the indigenous sources of anthropological knowledge. This project addresses this deficit through a multi-sited, collaborative ethnographic investigation of contemporary indigenous curatorial practices in two South Pacific museums located in Polynesia (Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa and Museo Rapa Nui, Easter Island, Chile). The project generates historically informed, ethnographic insights into ‘the figure of the curator’ as an agent of indigenous knowledge production and community engagement across the Pacific. In doing so, the project presents indigenous perspectives that reframe the anthropological curatorship of Pacific collections in, and the production of public understandings through, ethnographic museums in Europe. The applicant has a track record of successful collaborations with indigenous scholars and is currently conducting a study of the Bishop Museum Hawai’i, which is also located in Polynesia. The IF project advances a cross-cultural anthropology overcoming scientific Eurocentrism, and provides ethnographic museums in Europe with a roadmap for renegotiating the curation of indigenous objects.

Abstract
The aim of the proposed project is to evaluate the development of a new and disruptive solution directed to Viticulture sector. In this project, ENERMETER intends to evaluate the market potential and execute a detailed technical and technological analysis to respond to some of the most pressing challenges of the actual market. The goal is to evaluate the potential of a solution the will represent a paradigm change in tools and technique to extract information about of vineyards cultures, important to the quality of the resulting product (wine). This innovation will allow manual processes start to be performed automatically and remotely, through a system of acquisition, image processing and analysis with high resolution of the entire area of the vineyard, based on the integration of computer vision and of inertial and georeferenced sensors coupled to a mobile system. With this project, ENERMETER aims to provide a set of novelties to the wine sector. This will be able to improve the quality of the final product, through a continuous monitoring of the production system, as well as reduce pollution of the environment due to rationalized use of pesticides. The entire solution is based on state of the art technology developed from scratch by ENERMETER, which enhances a high degree of customer satisfaction. The development of this project will allow the company to establish itself in the market as an innovative company whose investments reflect quality and robustness. The Viti Precision Solution is a multilingual, multicultural and multi-browser solution, offering all the necessary features to be implemented in the international market. ENERMETER already defined Australia, United States, Brazil and Chile as market target.

Rebellion and Resistance in the Iberian Empires, 16th-19th centuries

Year 2018
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Economic inequalities, social exclusion, discrimination against minorities, cultural resistance and disruption of social cohesion – these are all key concerns in the current European and global agenda, both in scholarly work and policy-making. RESISTANCE aims at analysing these issues by focusing on the processes of resistance carried out by social actors that have been historically disadvantaged, discriminated against and dominated. By using a concept of resistance that connects continued and less visible forms of resistance, cultural dissent and violent revolts, the ultimate goal of RESISTANCE is to produce a reinterpretation of the universe of “the dominated”. RESISTANCE will provide an understanding of how these actors could influence processes of social change, either by opening up societies to diversity and making them more inclusive and equal, or, conversely, by causing the increase of repression. Rooted in the disciplinary field of history, RESISTANCE uses the past as a laboratory for the analysis. Focusing on the former Portuguese and Spanish empires, this project privileges a comparative approach in time and space in order to investigate an extended time frame (sixteenth to mid-nineteenth centuries) and a spatial framework that encompasses Europe, the Americas, Africa and Asia. The past experiences of their societies, strongly grounded on ethnic, social, economic, cultural, religious, and gender inequality, still shape current political and social dynamics. RESISTANCE is led by the University of Évora, and made up of seven beneficiary universities in Portugal, Spain and Germany, plus six universities in third countries (Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Cape Verde, Mexico and USA). In addition to academic-type deliverables, RESISTANCE proposes an extensive range of dissemination and communication outputs specifically targeted at wide-ranging audiences (schools, museums, international agencies, think tanks, policy-makers, and more).

Forecasting conservation needs for endangered fauna:integrating landscape ecology and ethnoecology to predict habitat quality for the kodkod cat (Leopardus guigna) in the Chilean temperate rainforest

Year 2010
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Habitat loss, alteration and fragmentation represent severe threats to biodiversity globally. Wild cats, which generally require large areas over which to forage, are particularly affected by fragmentation and human-felid conflicts. Whereas considerable research has been directed towards large carnivores, smaller more cryptic species have received comparatively little attention. The kodkod or güiña (Leopardus guigna) is the smallest of the neotropical cats and has one of the most restricted distributions known for felids occupying a narrow strip within south-central Chile and Argentina, the core area of indigenous Mapuche communities. The kodkod is classified as vulnerable by IUCN. Principal threats are habitat loss due to agricultural land use and retribution killing after attacks on poultry. The general aim of the project is to explore how projected future social and economic development of the fragmented and ethnically heterogeneous Araucanía region will affect habitat availability for the kodkod on private lands. An auto-ecological study will use radio-telemetry for the first time in the northern pre-Andean distribution range to assess habitat use, home range and activity patterns. An ethno-ecological study will provide understanding of the human environment context in which the kodkod lives. Through quantitative and qualitative interviews with Mapuche people and other socio-cultural groups of landowners knowledge and attitudes will be explored. Linking the ecological, ethnic and social information with geographic information, future land use scenarios will be modelled. This allows strategies to be identified for mitigating conflicts between the development process and habitat quality, and for the role of the kodkod as a cultural keystone species for use in conservation education. Training will be achieved in interdisciplinary aspects of biodiversity conservation (ethnoecology) and its methodologies (telemetry, Geographical Information Systems).

Operation Condor: Accountability for Transnational Crimes in Uruguay

Year 2016
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Confronting past atrocities is essential to consolidate democracy and human rights protection. Truth and justice initiatives investigating crimes perpetrated at the national level have long been occurring. Yet, accountability for transnational crimes is a pending issue in scholarship and practice. This project fills this gap and addresses the transnational dimension of past atrocities in South America. In 1975, the dictatorships of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay established a secret transnational network of intelligence and counterinsurgency operations to persecute political opponents in exile called Operation Condor, kidnapping and murdering hundreds of people. The project aims to study transnational crimes, by focusing on Operation Condor’s Uruguayan victims, and probe the response of Uruguay’s national justice system to transnational atrocities. Uruguay was selected to analyse Operation Condor: one Uruguayan was kidnapped in each Condor country; thus, investigating its Uruguayan victims permits to also study the entire network and its modus operandi. The project creatively adopts a regional focus and uses data from recently opened archives. The broader question behind the research agenda is: how can we respond to atrocities that transcend state borders? Studying accountability for Operation Condor crimes will offer lessons of potential application to past and present forms of transnational crimes, such as the smuggling of migrants across the Mediterranean Sea. The outputs include three articles, a book, a policy brief, op-eds, a workshop for legal professionals, seminar and conference presentations, and training sessions for PhD students and early career researchers. The Fellowship will directly benefit Dr Lessa’s career prospects, equipping her with new skills, knowledge, and specialised training in archival research and analysis of case files, placing her at the forefront of her field as an established interdisciplinary researcher.

Routes, roots, and rumours: Tracing migration and tourism imaginaries

Year 2008
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The objective of this anthropological research is to study empirically how imaginaries of tourism to and immigration from “the South” (Africa, Latin America, and Asia) are interlinked and what this tells us about multiculturalism and representations of otherness. The main hypothesis is that prevailing images and discourse represent travel to and from the South in ways that seem disconnected from the lived present but connected with an imagined past. This proposition will be analyzed through an in-depth study of how people in Brussels, Belgium, imagine and represent tourism to and migration from Indonesia, Tanzania, and Chile. The research will employ a mixed-methods approach, involving observation, interviews, archival research, and the collection of images and discourse from secondary sources (TV, advertising, printed press, digital media, cinema, photography and exhibitions). The ethnographic perspective will provide a close-grained analysis of the cultural practices and social relations that (re)produce globally circulating imaginaries of mobility and the implications this has for people’s lives. The project adds to existing research in two ways. In the study, imaginaries (representational systems that mediate reality and form identities) are operationalized as real practices: through the ethnographic method we can assess how imaginary activities, subjects, and social relations are materialized, enacted, and inculcated. Thematically, the research analyzes how widespread imaginaries and personal imaginations about mobility are interconnected and contradicting each other. The study links strongly between the social sciences and the humanities, drawing on the need to bring together aspects of anthropology, sociology, psychology, history, and geography. This timely project will enable a promising researcher affiliated with a top university in the USA to reintegrate himself in the EU, helping him to expand his academic career and facilitate the transfer of knowledge.

The Migration Regime in Spanish America (1700-1810)

Year 2015
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
In the history of migration, the colonial Spanish-American case is particularly interesting. The Spanish law forbade all non-Spaniards to settle in the Spanish territories of America, nevertheless a lot of foreigners lived there and were largely tolerated. Nevertheless, the situation of foreigners in Spanish-America was precarious. Every time a supposed foreigner could be denunciated by his neighbor and also expulsion champagnes against the foreigners ordered by the government were common. Beginning with the reform policy of Charles III in 1767, the attitude towards the presence of foreign settlers in Spain and America changed. The population theory of the Enlightenment regarded foreign settlers as useful, so that concrete settlement projects with foreign settlers were carried out. However this positive attitude towards foreigners was questioned due to the North-American Independence, the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars. Progressively foreigners were seen as a risk in terms of security, in particular the French migrants who were suspected to be revolutionaries and the British and Portuguese who, in times of war against Great Britain and Portugal, were regarded as enemies. As a way of supervising the now feared foreigners and creating a new method to expel them if needed, the government reformed the existing measures and introduced new ones and more efficient institutions of surveillance. This project aims to investigate the migration regime in Spanish-America during 18th and early 19th centuries. Migration regimes are spheres of activity based on principles and laws, in which individual, collective and institutional actors try to manage migration in their favor. The project focuses on conflicts which were caused by the presence of foreigners in Spanish-America. The analysis of these conflicts allows to reconstruct the regularity by which migration processes were negotiated within the Spanish-American migration regime.With focus on Cuba, Mexico, Río de la Plata, Upper Peru (Bolivia), and Chile the project refers to Spanish-America as a whole and not only to specific administrative entities.
