A história global está no centro de algumas das discussões historiográficas mais recentes e estimulantes. Essa atenção está obviamente ligada aos principais desafios de nossa sociedade, divididos entre globalização e fluidez, por um lado, e o ressurgimento de nacionalismos e velhas barreiras, por outro. Devido ao seu escopo, métodos e abordagens, a História Global permite pensar a História além das fronteiras nacionais, muitas vezes artificiais, bem como descentrar a Europa no que diz respeito à análise histórica. No entanto, existem limitações e fraquezas que merecem ser debatidas.

Global History is at the core of some the most recent and stimulating historiographical discussions. Such attention is obviously linked to the main challenges of our society, divided between globalization and fluidity on the one hand, and the resurgence of nationalisms and old barriers on the other. Due to its scope, methods, and approaches, Global History allows one to think History beyond national, often artificial boundaries, as well as to decenter Europe as far as the historical analysis is concerned. Yet there are limitations and weaknesses worth debating.

The Micro and the Global

O grupo de leitura sobre história global é coordenado por Jorge Flores e organizado pelo Centro Interuniversitário de História das Ciências e da Tecnologia (CIUHCT) e pelo Departamento de História e Filosofia das Ciências (DHFC), Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa (FCUL). O objetivo é contribuir para essa conversa, convidando a reflexão sobre esses e outros tópicos relacionados, como: história global e outras “histórias”; o início moderno e o global; história global e globalização; o micro e o global; vidas globais; história global da ciência; impérios, comércio e história global. O início da era moderna esteve na vanguarda dos principais desenvolvimentos historiográficos no campo e, portanto, receberá atenção especial.

The reading group on global history is coordinated by Jorge Flores and organized by the Centro Interuniversitário de História das Ciências e da Tecnologia (CIUHCT) and the Departamento de História e Filosofia das Ciências (DHFC), Faculdade de Ciências, Universidade de Lisboa (FCUL). It aims at contributing to this conversation by inviting reflection on these and other related topics such as: global history and other “histories”; the early modern and the global; global history and globalization; the micro and the global; global lives; global history of science; empires, trade, and global history. The early modern era has been at the forefront of the major historiographical developments in the field and will therefore receive particular attention.


O grupo se reunirá no semestre da primavera de 2019-2020 a cada duas semanas, às quartas-feiras, das 11h às 12h30, na Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa. Será aberto a não membros da Faculdade de Ciências e da comunidade da Universidade de Lisboa, embora limitado a um máximo de 20 participantes. As leituras serão principalmente em inglês; por favor contacte Jorge Flores (jmflores@ciencias.ulisboa.pt) para as respetivas cópias

The group will meet in the Spring semester of 2019-2020 every other week on Wednesdays, from 11:00 to 12:30, Faculdade de Ciências, Universidade de Lisboa. It will be open to non-members of the Faculty of Sciences and the University of Lisbon community, albeit limited to a maximum of 20 participants.

The course SoilEco aims at introducing attendants to an updated state of the art of diversity of the soil biota and the functional roles played by soil organisms in key ecological processes.

In this course, we promote a multidisciplinary approach presenting the most recent findings on the topic and challenging the traditional way of considering symbiotic associations as exceptions and not as the rule.

The goal of this course is to provide to the participants with current and practical knowledge on urban ecology, including ecological and social aspects.

This course aims to explore ways of communicating science to non-specialized audiences, such as policy makers, industry, general public (including students and teachers), through their engagement and participation in citizen science activities.

This course introduces the field of island biogeography, a discipline that has long influenced other research areas such as macroecology, community ecology, evolution and conservation biology.

Scientists, as the main actors in the production of scientific knowledge, have the responsibility of having an active voice in communicating this knowledge – and that can be achieved for example by a conscious use of the communication tools at their disposal and a better articulation with journalists, among other means.

This course aims at providing students with basic knowledge of R programming, allowing them to manipulate and visualize data with R.

This course aims at providing students with statistical knowledge and tools to manipulate, analyze and visualize biological data with R. It also includes an introduction to modeling, simulations and Bayesian statistics.

Under the general framework of Global Change Ecology, the goal of this course is to provide the participants with the most recent and practical knowledge on the use of Functional Diversity.

The course provides essential skills and knowledge that enable the participants to develop climate change adaptation strategies.

The objective of this course is to provide participants with basic knowledge on a) the fundamental aspects of experimental design and b) workflows, platforms and tools to increase reproducibility at all scientific levels.

This is a mostly practical course offering an overview on different community ecology and macroecological methods and software. These will include all steps of a research project, from the optimal sampling of communities to process inference from large-scale patterns of taxon, phylogenetic and functional diversity.

This course aims to walk through the grounds of modern botany studies, covering subjects that have been excluded from most academic curricula.

At the end of this course, participants will be able to predict the three-dimensional structure of nucleic acid and proteins from their sequence and use the acquired knowledge to improve or create new methodologies in molecular biology research and diagnostics.

The course aims at enabling the participants to use different methods to measure the impacts of pollutants on ecosystems. Basic knowledge will be provided through theoretical and practical lessons on how to select and use the most suitable metrics based on the analysis of multiple compartments of the ecosystems.

This course offers an overview of the different ways to measure biodiversity, and provides tips for the stratification of primary biodiversity data and the construction of variables that describe its various facets. It also includes an in-depth review of the different types of data used to measure biodiversity and their problems and limitations.
