This Workshop aims to bring together researchers from different chronological periods, at different stages of their research. It will focus on three main research lines, within an interdisciplinary and trans-historical framework. We accept proposals relating to the following topics:

* Global History: comparative studies, evolution of global phenomena, historical processes in their diachrony, regional studies, changing economies, cultural continuities, methodological questions on globalization, etc.

* Visual Culture: travelling images, borders and images, social life of images, Visual Culture in Global History, theoretical sources for the study of the itinerant images; aesthetics of migration.

* Itinerancies: people who act as itinerant agents; materials that are brought in and taken away (travelling objects); origin and reception places of itinerant elements (anthropology of itinerancy); the visual, artistic or written representation of the phenomenon of itinerancy.

Abstracts and a short biography should contain a maximum of 300 words each and be submitted via the online form. Proposals may be in Portuguese, Spanish, English, French or Italian. Full papers are due by 30 November 2016 for peer-review with a view to publication.
