Call For Papers

Police Science at the End of the Old Regime
From theory to practice
Évora University, 14th and 15th January 2016
Espírito Santo College, Room 124
This conference is aimed at studying the acceptance of modern police practices regarding public order. The most recent historiography on the police is focused on analysing acceptance and circulation of police knowledge and practices in Europe, abandoning traditional explanations almost exclusively based on national frameworks and focusing more on the organisation and operation of umbrella institutions. As a result of these new approaches, it is now known that the concept of police was based on spaces where it was implemented and on policemen’s perception of their competences and methods for putting them into practice. Following this approach, this conference aimed at providing an idea of surveillance devices used as well as economic and social experiences implemented at the time. How did police sciences defend population and territorial management? Or rather, how did they propose to encourage economic development and demographic expansion? And what were their ideas of Public Happiness? How were similar ideas embraced?
The conference is organised into the following topics:

I – Ideological assumptions and approaches for action by police in Europe
II – Territorial and population control: development and use of knowledge
III – Intendencies and criminality: individuals and reclusion institutions
IV - General Police Intendency of the Court and State of Brazil; a different identity?

Organising Committee
Prof. Laurinda Abreu (Évora University / CIDEHUS), Maria Luísa Gama (CIDEHUS) and Christelle de Monserrate (CIDEHUS)
