The International Meeting “Wood and Charcoal: Approaches from Archaeology, Archaeobotany, Ethnography and History” (Braga, 15-16 April)

The International Meeting “Wood and Charcoal: Approaches from Archaeology, Archaeobotany, Ethnography and History” is organised by Lab2Pt and the University of Minho, and will take place in Braga (Portugal) from 15-16 April. It is focused on the study of wood and charcoal from archaeological, archaeobotanical, ethnographic and historical approaches. Wood was in the past a key material and was used in many different ways in the day-to-day life. Domestic, artisanal and ritual tools, weapons, structures, buildings, log-boats, ships, carts, etc. were made of wood. It was also crucial for the developing of rituals and ceremonies. One of the main goals of this Meeting is to give visibility to this ephemeral material that made part in the past of all the spheres of life. The approaches to the study of wood –and also to charcoal- would be made since disciplines such as Archaeology, Archaeobotany, Ethnography and History with strong interrelations between them. The Meeting would include conferences lectured by recognised experts besides to short-communications and a poster-session, ending with a round-table.

Trabalho, capital e aquecimento global: mercados de carbono versus emprego climático

http://www.ces.uc.pt/eventos/index.php?id=13098&id_lingua=1&pag=13490

UNFCCC Cop 21 has defined how climate policy will develop in the coming years. What is mainly at stake is the future of the Kyoto Protocol (elaborated in 1997 and entered into force in 2005): the Paris agreement continues to rely on carbon markets - the main innovation produced by the Kyoto Protocol - also after 2020.

We will discuss such exclusive reliance from economic as well as technical perspectives. Our approach, however, aims at going beyond these important elements to incorporate the role of social movements and organized labour in the arena of climate policy, during Cop 21 and beyond.

Organizadores: Emanuele Leonardi, Lucia de Oliveira Fernandes, Ricardo Coelho, Climáximo.

Nota: Evento no âmbito do projeto ENTITLE - Rede Europeia de Investigação de Ecologia Política, Oficina Ecologia e Sociedade e Núcleo de Estudos sobre Políticas Sociais, Trabalho e Desigualdades (POSTRADE)
