Call For Papers

The extinction and secularization of religious houses resulting from the liberal revolutions
of the late 18th and early 19th centuries in Europe and Latin America caused deep
changes in the use of monastic buildings and in the surrounding urban landscape. The
impact of the secularization of the religious houses on the urban development of the liberal
Lisbon has been studied in the research project LxConventos. Coinciding with the end of
the project, an international conference will be held in Lisbon with the aim giving the topic
a broad international perspective.
How did former convents contribute to the transformation processes of the territory, the
landscape and the nascence of the modern city? The conference not only intends to
compare the diversity of scenarios of urban metamorphosis and adaptive use of former
religious houses, but proposes a platform for sharing information and methodological
issues in a multidisciplinary perspective (architectural history, urban history, archaeology,
heritage conservation, urban planning).


Papers’ proposals should fit in one of the following themes:

· Relationships between the urbanization of the monastic proprieties and urban
planning processes.
· Functional reconversion of convent buildings after their secularization.
· Memories, traces and heritagization of secularized religious houses.
· Monastic heritage in the contemporary city. Present and future.


Papers’ proposals and presentations must be in Portuguese, Spanish or English. They will
include: 1° title, 2° abstract (max. 500 words), 3° CV (max. 400 words), to be sent to:
lxconventos@gmail.com
