Conference: Local vocabularies of “heritage”, 8-10 February 2012, Evora

Local vocabularies of “heritage”

Variations, Negotiations, Transformations

8-10 February 2012
Universidade de Évora
Colégio do Espírito Santo
Portugal

First congress of the
Network of the Researchers on Heritagisations
and the
Centro Interdisciplinar de História, Culturas e Sociedades da Universidade de Évora.

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.

L’idée centrale de ce colloque est de mener une comparaison internationale des variantes des vocabulaires et des usages linguistiques locaux du « patrimoine », aussi bien dans le contexte de contact avec les institutions internationales que dans le cadre restreint des usages indigènes et coutumiers. Le colloque se propose donc de prendre au sérieux les définitions et re-définitions émiques des « termes indigènes », et d’en dresser un inventaire critique, en dépassant la fiction d’un champ « patrimonial » homogène, continu et globalisé. Une analyse comparative et une confrontation de concepts voisins dans les différents vocabulaires locaux permettraient également de prendre la mesure des transactions, des mutations, des malentendus ou des transferts qui peuvent naître des contacts globaux initiés dans les échanges culturels au cours des deux derniers siècles.

A ideia central deste colóquio é a de promover uma comparação internacional das variantes dos vocabulários e das utilizações linguísticas locais do “património”, tanto no contexto do contacto com as instituições internacionais como no quadro restrito das utilizações indígenas e habituais. O colóquio propõe-se, assim, levar a sério as definições e redefinições émicas dos “termos indígenas” e de desenhar/conceber um inventário crítico, ultrapassando a ficção dum campo “patrimonial” homogéneo, contínuo e globalizado. Uma análise comparativa e uma confrontação de conceitos similares nos diferentes vocabulários locais permite igualmente considerar a medida das transacções, das mutações, dos mal entendidos ou das transferências que podem nascer dos contactos globais iniciados pelas trocas culturais no decurso dos dois últimos séculos
