The archive has become an object of sustained historical and theoretical investigation in recent years. The anthropological turn in photographic criticism has opened up new directions for the analysis and understanding of photo archives that complement and dialogue with more traditional Art Historical approaches focused on photographs as images; it has helped direct this growing interest towards the materiality of the photograph as object, and its social and institutional lives that unfold very often within the archival ecosystem.

Utilisé dès le XIXe siècle, le dossier personnel est le résultat d’une procédure de recueil d’informations, d’enregistrement, de description et de suivi d’un individu. Cette mise en écriture de l’existence individuelle devient un moyen de contrôle et de traçabilité pour identifier des catégories de personnes et surtout fabriquer une typologie de l’hors norme, dont l’objectif peut viser la protection de l’individu et de ses droits mais aussi et surtout la protection de la société en adaptant l’intervention à la nature jugée déviante de la personne concernée.
The Institute of Contemporary History at the Universidade NOVA, Lisbon, Portugal, is pleased to invite proposals for its new research seminar on the colonial past and its historical legacies during the academic year 2019/2020.

The Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919. That summer marked the beginning of two contrasting historical developments.
Rapid urban growth is associated not only with economic prosperity, the development of new fields of knowledge and technological innovation, but also with economic inequality, social polarization and environmental costs. Against this background, complex dynamics are taking place between centers and peripheral urban areas, in which urban functions and urban usage are shifting, new patterns of suburbanization are emerging, and places of living and dwelling are changing rapidly.
