II International Symposium - Archaeology, Archaeoacoustics and Neuroscience 31st May - 2nd June 2019

 
What Kind of Relation?

This Symposium, with the aim of sharing knowledge, intends to gather researchers from different disciplines such as archaeology, acoustics, ethnomusicology, archaeoacoustics, neuroscience, anthropology and psychology, among others. For example, we are interested in presentations concerning the origins of music, the acoustics of ancient monuments, musicarchaeology, the effects of specific sounds on the human brain, and representations of music or dancing scenes in the arts of several chronological periods, besides other possible approaches regarding the use of sound in past human contexts.

Accepted presentations will be published in the proceedings of the Symposium.

There will be a parallel activity, consisting in an exhibition of contemporary art, open to interested participants, inspired in the theme Art & Sounds, Sounds in Art.

Dialogues 2019 Touro Bravo and Ribatejo - 24 to 26 May, 2019

The first in a series of Dialogues, this initiative of our Thinkers Club, supports the development of actions to connect and project the environmental and cultural heritage of Ribatejo to the world, through History, Science and Art.

With the aim of promoting Ribatejo in all its aspects, we organize a Public Roundtable with international speakers to revive the noble Identity of our land and the Touro Bravo, that grazes free in our landscape.  Our invited speakers represent intellectual, scientific and social institutions of deep knowledge about the primordial man/bull relationship coming from different parts of the world, who have shown interest in the Ribatejano coexistence paradigm.
