From the late twentieth to the early twenty-first century, Portugal was the setting of several initiatives commemorating historical events related to the country’s expansion overseas, namely the fifth centenary of Vasco da Gama’s maritime journey to India, in 1498, and of Pedro Álvares Cabral’s arrival in Brazil, in 1500. Twenty years after Expo’98, Práticas da História: Journal on Theory, Historiography and Uses of the Past calls for contributions for an analysis and critical reflection on this commemorative cycle. A seminar will be held in Lisbon, on 18-19 June 2018, with an opening lecture by the historian António Hespanha. The seminar will focus not only on the Portuguese context, but also on the ways in which these commemorations were interpreted in other national contexts, especially Brazil, Angola, São Tomé and Príncipe, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Goa, Macau, and East Timor.

Proposals should be sent to until 15 April 2018, in one of the following languages: Portuguese, English, French or Spanish. Abstracts should contain approximately 500 words and include a brief biographical note (40 to 60 words). By 24 April, authors will be informed if their proposal was accepted. If the decision is positive, authors will be invited to send a written version of the paper until 1 June 2018, containing 6,000 to 10,000 words and following the journal’s submission guidelines.

After the paper is presented and discussed at the seminar, authors should deliver a revised version until 10 July 2018, which will undergo blind peer-review. Depending on the result of the review process, a final version will be published in the journal, at the end of 2018.
