    The aim of this research project is to evaluate the artistic exchanges in the Mediterranean during the late Middle Ages through the Geographical Information Systems (GIS). The start point is the selection of certain elements of the Islamic art, developed by the Almoravids in the 12th century. It is assumed that Almoravid arts and architecture were not isolated and can be related to other Mediterranean artistic manifestations due to commercial, political and cultural relations. In this context, the objectives of the project are: to measure the presence of the pre-selected elements in the main artistic manifestations of the Islamic and Christian Mediterranean countries in the late Middle Ages, to apply the new method based on the GIS, through the creation of three databases for studying the exchanges between the main Mediterranean artistic manifestations and Almoravid art, to assess the relation of religion and power with the artistic productions of the Islamic countries in the Mediterranean frame and to review the concepts of centre and peripheries regarding the artistic production in the Mediterranean context. To achieve the objectives the fellow will extract the study data from the historiography, Arab and Latin written sources related to this period, and the artistic funds of the main museum collections with medieval Mediterranean pieces. The results will be included in a database, a blog and several publications, which will be available for the scientific community and the general public. The importance of this project lies in the revision of concepts, the improvement of the knowledge of societies that lived simultaneously in a given territory through the study of their culture and thought, and the introduction of an innovative method for the Art History research, based on the GIS. All these factors will become Europe a leading intermediary power between East and West, thanks to the comprehension of history, religion and culture of Islamic Mediterranean countries

    The impact of the transport infrastructures in the development of countries and territories is one of the most current topics in the European policies. The Mercator-e project is designed to analyse the diachronic social, political and economical repercussions of the transport infrastructures during several periods of the Iberian Peninsula. An integrated approach joining multi-proxy analysis (SNA applied to the network centrality, TNA to analyse transport costs & times, demography studies) and the study of archaeo-historical sources will be applied. Analysing the transport communication networks in various time scopes will offer to the academic society new quantified data about the infrastructures morphology and their impact in the political and economical evolution of these territories. Historically, the Iberian Peninsula has had periods with very different political ideologies about the role and needs of infrastructure that will be analysed in this project: 1) The Roman era, 2) The Middle Ages, 3) the Modern Era, and 4) The XIXth Century and the emergence of the railroad. This project offers a new approach to the study and knowledge of the historical infrastructures. From the use of the Network Analysis to study the infrastructures, a set of completely new data could be generated to understand and visualise the transport evolution and the evolution of the territorial configuration. This project will provide a breakthrough in the analysis of transport in big territories. The high digitalisation detail and the diachronic study will offer outstanding results. The Mercator-e methodology will take into account elements such as highly digitised communication networks, historical vehicle characteristics, changes in means of transport or the topography to make more complex and real calculations. Mercator-e will provide a new perspective on ways to quantify Historical Trade and Transport and will place this research into the international research circles of this field.

    The project PROPERA (The Profanation of Opera: Music and Drama on Film) aims to shed new light on the relationship between opera and film. It draws on the hypothesis that the mediation of film displaces, broadens, and enriches our experience and understanding of opera in ways that have not yet been fully explored in their aesthetic and political potential. To fill this gap, the proposed research on the interplay between the two genres and media over the last hundred years will focus on a variety of objects including not only opera-films, but also feature- and short-length mainstream and experimental movies that incorporate opera in relevant and thought-provoking ways. The ultimate goal of looking at opera through the lens of film is to develop and refine a “profane” approach to a “sacred” genre – that is, to challenge the identification of opera as a live performance art belonging to an inherently conservative tradition so as to reimagine the past, present, and future of the operatic genre in a media-saturated world. Based on an interdisciplinary approach at the crossroads of opera and film studies, musicology, and philosophy, the consequences of this shift of perspective will be explored from the standpoint of production and spectatorship, with regard to traditional and contemporary repertoire alike. Globally seen, the project – to be carried out at the University of Chicago and the Universidade Nova de Lisboa, but involving several non-academic institutions – also seeks to create bridges between scholarly research, artistic practice and public engagement. The outcomes include 1 monograph, at least 6 articles, 3 workshops, 1 international conference, 1 festival, 1 conference series, 1 collaborative on-line platform, and 1 international network on opera, film and new media. If successful, the project will have a considerable impact on the scientific career of the candidate and strongly contribute to the internationalization of the host institution.
