From the Call for Papers:

7th Manor House Colloquium — Portugal, Brasil, and Goa: Cultural Interactions
Fundação Oriente, Goa, 10–13 November 2020

Proposals due by 31 March 2020

The Casa Senhorial Portugal, Brasil & Goa project, hosted at the Instituto de História de Arte, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, in partnership with Fundação Casa Rui Barbosa in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, promotes the 7th Manor House Colloquium at Fundação Oriente in Goa, from 10 to 13 November 2020. The colloquium aims to extend the study of manor houses to Goa and its territory and share the development of this research with the Brazilian and Portuguese team. Following distinct courses, the architectures of Portugal, Brazil, and Goa nonetheless traded experiences and influenced one another, giving birth to new solutions and models that were markedly original. This call for papers invites researchers to participate in the development and broadening of the debate by submitting an original article in the four themes of the ongoing research project:

• Patrons and artists, customs and rituals
• Distributive programs and functional and symbolic nomenclatures of each space
• Study of fixed ornamentation: ceilings, tiles, carvings, plaster, textiles, floors, chimneys, windows and doors, integrated furniture
• Furniture and equipment in its specific functions

Proposals should be submitted in English, as a Word file, with the following information: paper title, author’s institutional affiliation, thematic line abstract of 250 words, 3–5 key words, biography of 150 words. Send to manorhousesGoa2020@gmail.com by 31 March 2020.
