Making and Unmaking Religious Heritage. Conflict, Competition and Cooperation at Small Scale - 01-02
The Interdisciplinary PhD School “Making and Unmaking Religious Heritage. Conflict, Competition and Cooperation at Small Scale” will take place in Lisbon and Évora in Portugal during 5 days. Open to PhD students and post-docs of social sciences and humanities working on religious and/or heritage matters.
The PhD School is funded by the Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT, Portugal) and the LabexMed (France). It involves researchers from the CIDEHUS-Universidade de Évora (Portugal), the FCSH-Nova (Portugal), the PhD Programme “Antropologia. Políticas e Imagens da Cultura e Museologia” (FCSH-Nova de Lisboa, CRIA, IELT, INET-MD, et ISCTE-IUL, Portugal), the IDEMEC (UMR 7307 Aix Marseille Université CNRS), the TELEMME (UMR 7303 Aix Marseille Université CNRS), the École française d’Athènes (Greece) and the École des Hautes Études Hispaniques et Ibériques – Casa de Velázquez (Spain).
The PhD School aims at providing young researchers with theoretical and methodological tools to explore heritage-making processes carried out by religious or other groups, from an interdisciplinary and comparative perspective. Participants will address different topics from a large panel of Mediterranean and European case studies such as: entanglements between religion, politics and heritage-making; community agency; international collaboration in culture and heritage; heritage conflict and cooperation; social and political uses of the past.
What are the places and the role of religion in past and present heritage practices? How can religious and cultural minorities overpass the hegemonic status of dominating elites? Through heritage-making, what are the links and the frictions between local, national, and international tourism, intimate representations of cultural and self identity? How far can cultural heritage be considered as a peaceful or a conflict tool of inter-confessional and interethnic relationships? Which are the uses of heritage and tourist devices (archives, museums, private collections, and also theme parks and cultural mediation systems) in contemporary practices?

Pilgrimage and Low-Intensity Violence: The Role of Anthropologists as Heritage Mediators
I will use the case study of the pilgrimage of Santiago (route to Finisterre) to analyze the effects that pilgrimage is having on local populations. I’m using the philosopher Jullien and his concept of “silent transformations” to look at the role of anthropologists as heritage mediators.
