As part of the RESISTANCE project: Rebellion and Resistance in the Iberian Empires, 16th-19th centuries (778076-H2020-MSCA-RISE-2017), the Institute of Social Sciences of the University of Lisbon and the CHAM - Center for Humanities of the Nova University of Lisbon and the University of the Azores present Symposium VI - Forms of Resistance in the Iberian Empires: From Political Participation to Everyday Forms of Dissent (1450-1850).
This symposium aims to bring together researchers who work on people from "lower groups" and their role in transforming society. The goal is to bring together research exploring the actions of these people through different forms of political participation and daily resistance practices, which often eroded social and political structures. These forms of resistance were sometimes routine and underground, while other times they were expressed in the context of institutional practices, wielding arguments that did not necessarily involve physical violence and often involving only a few people. Both are important to study the emergence of new forms of political and social imagination, understand the degree of tension and social conflict expressed in daily situations, and discuss to what extent this magma of discontent may have contributed to the eruption of violent events, generating more systemic transformations.
