The PSR is a 100 % non-partisan academic forum, an Open Intellectual Convivium -- for the study of countries, regions, communities, and institutions sharing, exploring, transforming, or developing a Portuguese, Brazilian, or other Luso-related heritage

Multi-lingual, peer reviewed, open-minded, agenda-free. Articles, review essays, reviews in English, Portuguese, French, Spanish and other languages.

 

Any fool can 'know'; the point is to understand” (A. Einstein)


 


A revista PSR deseja, a todos, um ano de saúde, veracidade, e paz. Never put ideological conformity above thorough, precise, verifiable, and candid scholarly integrity [(typically costliest in personal terms)].

   

 
 


The PSR / Baywolf Press
ensure a panoply of academic publishing services: • handling of manuscripts (articles, books, research data), with peer review • full-service development of periodicals and books • we operate in English, Portuguese, Spanish, and French, and also offer a venue for Lusophone-related material in other languages (German, Italian, the Scandinavian and Slavic zone, Finno-Ugric zone, and more) • la revue PSR et Éditions Baywolf offrent une palette de services en langue française: examen par des pairs & appui rédactionnel complet pour monographies, anthologies d'essais, recueils d'études savantes • in all research and publishing matters authors and contributors are invited to contact us on-line. Notification: In the wake of the unfolding Hindawi / Wiley 'organized peer review rings / "peer review" groups' scandal and massive editorial retractions of papers already published in a variety of open-access and subscription scholarly periodicals (over 500 line-items thus far), the PSR / Baywolf Press are further tightening their entire review and acceptance system. Once a fully legitimate 'collapse cascade' begins, it may quickly reach paradigm-changing momentum, given the entanglement of citations and the dynamics aptly described as "citogenesis". The PSR / Baywolf Press will take all required steps to defend / enhance an integrity of accurate process, and to defend freedom of research & 'network'-independent / 'ring'-independent quality. We view this as a truly 'existential' factor.

The PSR / Baywolf Press
are currently running two topical Calls for Papers (our Standing General Call for Papers, 2022-2023-2024 continues, of course). The two topical calls have been posted at various venues. For a Portuguese version, in the usual rich context of announcements by other journals, institutions, and programs, consult the excellent and indispensable Plataforma 9.


(A) Mutual Regards I: The World through Lusophone Eyes and Portuguese-speakers through the Eyes of Others -- The Era of the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars (some chronologically prior pilot studies -- which logically would not fit the announced timeframe at all, because they pre-date the later eighteenth century -- are being featured in the Summer 2022 issue of the PSR (30 [1]), as a project 'pilot'). We are considering a variety of interesting possibilities and propositions, and we have therefore agreed to a substantial extension of the original deadlines, especially given the spontaneous and agreed-upon morphing of PSR 30 (1) (2022) into an "Editors' Cut" round anniversary issue. We aim to accommodate all our peer reviewed authors, and managing our annual space wisely, across scheduled issues, Edited Volumes, and Monographs, is going to further that goal.


(B) Mutual Regards II: The World through Lusophone Eyes and Portuguese-speakers through the Eyes of Others --
The First World War Era (including the October Revolution and its Immediate Post-1918 Ideological Sequels)

Just e-mail it to the PSR as a mail attachment(s).
> Contact: webpage here <. Make sure you have Javascript enabled, and click 'Send Mail to PSR' (between the two 'postal envelope' icons). If the file is very large (this will rarely be so), ZIP & attach the ZIP file. If you need to send large image files (illustrations), ZIP them or post them up on a free or contract Cloud server (options are available worldwide, now, with introductory basic service almost always for free) and e-mail us the file share link so we could pull the material down. Very simple.
 

   


The LSA website formerly hosted at York University is now relocated to the LSA / PSR platform. E
nhancements in progress. Relevant links on the PSR site are mostly updated, accordingly. As soon as York U IT acknowledges transfer and implements proper redirect (still NO sign of any technical response whatsoever), all LSA web York U links will redirect to: https://www.maproom44.com/lsa. We would like to advise that the no-longer-maintained old site (lsa.apps01.yorku.ca, a WordPress product) was not "https" compliant. It did not have any "secure transfer / browsing" certificate, and analytics suggest that it was not 'covered' by the York U "https" certificate either. In any case, the old site simply does not offer access to material available through the new site. Your new access passwords will not work on the old site, because the two are not technically connected at all. Note that lsa.apps01.yorku.ca has not been updated in months, because the current admin crew does not have access to its maintenance. It is a hollow-shell 'relic', regardless of the fact that search engines (e.g. Bing) list it still, for now.

   


The LSA International Conference 'Women, Gender and Intersectionality in the Lusophone World' concluded on 02 July 2022 in Ponta Delgada, Azores, Portugal

• the conference site resides now in a long-run vault on the PSR system, as data relevant to professional profiles and development (i.e. scholarly meetings, record of academic participation)  •  further conferences will also be archived, all-links (maintained as long as third-party-site & page links can technically be kept alive) • 


After the Conference ... Publication of Articles
(an Invitation that the PSR and Baywolf Press Extend to Participants of both the Previous LSA 2021-2022 Online Conference and the Hybrid-format Azores 2022 Conference) (access through the blue embedded target/arrow link within this headline).

The PSR and Baywolf Press
support The 4 D's Framework -- Doubt, Dissent, Debate against Dogma -- if Humanity is to have any kind of viable long-term future of any sort, it is imperative to (a) defend the right to dissent and (b) also defend the right to challenge critically and to disprove meticulously and with utter precision all scientific and scholarly and political data or concepts that readily crumble upon exposure to sober and independent tests. 'Semantic' 指鹿為馬 -- zhi lu wei ma is useless and self-defeating. It is ephemeral baka (バカ, ばか), baka-mono (馬鹿者) , 馬鹿 (whether one consults the Unbo Irohashū [運歩色葉集] or the 源氏物語 [Genji monogatari] [c. 1100s] or goes back to 207 BCE and earlier still -- 馬鹿者 simply is just 馬鹿者: always the same totalitarian 'word-salad disguise for ulterior [political / ideological] purposes [and a purported exertion of raw power rooted in an enforced acceptance of overt nonsense]').Freedom of speech is a crystal-clear existential and intellectual requirement, whether one agrees with any given research or argument, or disagrees. This is an issue of what is purely pragmatic. In one's own actual interest. Which all too many people no longer seem to be able to conceptualize. If one desperately must 'enforce' one's vocabulary and ideology through censorship and repression, because one is paroxysmally afraid of all dissenting data or analysis, then one has already lost -- not only the battle but the entire campaign and much more. If one feels impelled to use the full force -- and much beyond -- of an already devastatingly compromised legal system just to impose one's 'preference' for one word over another, then one has already lost. When one reaches the very next point -- having to censor and keep censoring, by Executive Decree, one's own considerably expensive agitprop because that agitprop has failed abjectly (self-eviscerated by simple glancing and paint-scratching contact with Reality), then one has already lost on a Galactic scale. Repression is the all-time classic harbinger of defeat. If interested, read our statement on core intellectual freedoms.

All right. A bit of lighthearted parody here:


BELFORT: Para ser presidente de estado ... só é necessário uma qualidade: a de saber preparar o buffet.

TODOS: Hein? Como?

BELFORT: Porque sendo a campanha das candidaturas uma noite de contradanças, os vencedores só têm uma preocupação política administrativa: avançar na ceia ...


(João do Rio, Teatro de João do Rio, 436) Immortally realist lines!


   

Publishing Program, 2022

For our past and future volumes, please visit our Forthcoming and Recent webpages. A new monographic series of Edited Volumes has been successfully launched (see announcement below -- the initial volumes include, among other, Rivers and Shores: 'Fluviality' and the Occupation of Colonial Amazonia, edited and curated by Rafael Chambouleyron and Luís Costa e Sousa. An edited volume of reflections centered on Ceuta and Northern Morocco, 1415-2015, and a volume of studies on Minas Gerais (see below) are available. Titles are being added to the already established PSR Monographs series. Paul Christopher Manuel's monograph, Voices of the Revolution: Revisiting the Portuguese Revolution of 25 April 1974 -- Interviews and Insights, with interview texts in mirror Portuguese and English versions, was released on 30-31 December 2019, just before the COVID-19 crisis. The roster of publications in progress includes new core translations into English of selected classic Portuguese sources of enduring cultural and research significance (in particular a new critical English translation of the Esmeraldo de Situ Orbis and the first ever English translation of the Manuscrito de Valentim Fernandes, involving a rigorous comparison between the published Portuguese and other versions and the original of the Manuscrito de Valentim Fernandes preserved in the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek (Munich)). The Valentim Fernandes project will be fully ready in late Spring 2022 (unforeseen labour-related COVID delays unfortunately having intervened in the final stages): (a) a full digital text of the transcription, newly derived from the manuscript and formatted to reflect the original accurately, (b) a full span of geospatially aware place name concordances (an analytical key), and (c) a digital atlas.

Jaime Eguiguren Art & Antiques
Hugo Miguel Crespo & Annemarie Jordan Gschwend, The “Pangolin Fan”: An Imperial Ivory Fan from Ceylon. Artistic Confluence and Global Gift Exchange between Sri Lanka and Renaissance Portugal (Buenos Aires: Jaime Eguiguren Art & Antiques, 2022). ISBN: 978-84-09-41680-6. This richly illustrated book presents a definitive study of nine imperial ivory fans from Renaissance Ceylon (present-day Sri Lanka), carved between 1542 and 1551, in the royal workshops of the lost Sinhalese kingdom of Kōttē (කෝට්ටේ රාජධානිය). These rare ivories, which display a mix of Hindu and Buddhist iconography, are today dispersed amongst public and private collections in Europe. They were commissioned by King Bhuvanekabāhu VII (1521-1551), at the height of his reign, as political gifts for high-ranking members of the Portuguese royal family. Five intricately carved Kōttē fans were earmarked for the Portuguese Queen, Catarina of Austria (r. 1525-1578), a Habsburg infanta and youngest sister of Emperor Charles V.

Betrand Livreiros
As always, we are more than glad to promote the Bertrand booksellers' system. Their meme -- "Passionate for Books" matches our own. Whoever, on their team, coined the other meme -- "Fazemos História, estando no presente" -- possessed clear insight. We agree entirely. Watch their current Manifesto Bertrand -- Somos Livros on YouTube, at https://www.bertrand.pt/online/somos-livros . Note that we are not part of the Programa de Afiliados da Bertrand, we do not promote any thing in exchange for any rewards -- on principle. We merely express appreciation.

Librairie Frédéric Douin : Used, Rare, and Special Item Books

Note the most recent additional catalogue, 18 September 2022, and all previous catalogues available. Shop at Douin, and rescue and cherish books: "Be Curious: and Life Shall Only be More Beautiful !" Some people burn, banish, defame, and censor books -- some people preserve priceless books even at the cost of their own life. Reference is to the iconic (in this respect) Ian Caldwell, The Rule of Four (2004), which is much more than an "ultimate puzzle book." This is a 'forgotten' work of utter Humanist defiance against zealotry, blinkered censorship, the decline of a free & genuine Academia, and/or Savonarola-style book-burning. You know very well which side we -- the PSR -- stand on. Yet, we would never refuse to publish a diversity of 'sides'. You draw your own conclusions from that ... . Whichever conclusion you wish to draw -- just do NOT impose those conclusions on others, and especially NOT using the Police, the Courts, Internet 'Disinformation' [so-called] Commissioners, the so-called 'Authorities' and the so-called 'Trusted Sources' or 'Fact Checkers'). You know what the old song says, "Sweet dreams are made of this / Who am I to disagree?" (Eurythmics, the absolutely haunting Track 6 of 'Sweet Dreams [Are Made of This], 1983, originally recorded on dirt cheap basement studio equipment). It all indeed is -- and has been for entire millennia -- a question of fundamental 'values'.


Paul Holberton Publishing 
The Global City: On the Streets of Renaissance Lisbon, edited by Annemarie Jordan Gschwend and K. J. P. Lowe (Paul Holberton Publishing: London, 2015; ISBN 9781907372889; 240 pp.) draws us into the past sensory universe of a Lisbon pre-dating the sudden seismic shock and tsunami of 1755. It does so from the starting point of two large-scale sixteenth-century vistas by an anonymous Flemish master that depict the Rua Nova dos Mercadores commercial and financial thoroughfare. Acquired in 1866 by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, the vistas contribute a unique spatio-temporal window into the past, at street level, bustling with the stark contradictions and contrasts of a global metropolis. The volume conjoins the two works of art with a wealth of data from newly found or suitably valorized archival documents, accompanied by a carefully selected display of little known or unpublished images of contemporary trade staples, curiosities, luxury and prestige items, naturalia, exotica, and other objects. A physical expression of the worldwide tangle of commerce, the Rua Nova as an architectural construct symbolically echoed the estuary of the river Tagus as a natural feature opening out to the Atlantic and to the oceans far beyond. The book Iets readers glimpse Lisbon and its material culture in all the vibrant cosmopolitanism characterizing this major trading hub of the Renaissance world, a hub whose essence and texture were to be forever altered by one of the planet's iconic natural cataclysms – an earthquake and a tsunami – on Saturday, 1 November 1755, the holiday of All Saints' Day. Please visit the PHP website for other recently published books.
