‘Human ancestral remais: scientific, technological and ethical perspectives’. Case studies from the neolithic to WWI


Reconstructing the past by studying human remains requires balance between science, ethics and technology, and greater responsibility in the process of curating and preserving this heritage. CRIA researcher Francisca Alves Cardoso will speak about these and other related issues on December 14th, at 5 pm, in Évora, at the second meeting of the ‘IN2PAST PhD Talks’. HERCULES researcher Ana Curto will be in charge of discussing the presentation ‘Human ancestral remains: scientific, technological and ethical perspectives. Case studies from the Neolithic to World War I’.

The event takes place in the Faculty Room (Sala de Docentes) at Colégio do Espírito Santo, University of Évora. Admittance is free and, if you cannot attend, you can always access this talk via Zoom.


About the Talks

The ‘IN2PAST PhD Talks’ series takes place between November 2023 and June 2024, in Évora, Lisbon and Minho. The goal is to promote the intersection between diverse scientific areas, which defines the transdisciplinary vocation of our associated laboratory, from chemistry and music to art history and architecture, from anthropology to contemporary history or archaeology.

The talks also encourage the dialogue between scientific practices of knowledge of the past, and other cultural ways of using and understanding it, from heritage interventions to artistic creation, to the development of public memory policies.

The meetings will take place at the different IN2PAST locations, from the South to the North of Portugal. They are open to participation by our PhD students and researchers, but also by colleagues from other research centres and professionals from the cultural sector who work in archives, museums, monuments, archaeological sites or natural parks.
