Environmental history in lusophone countries (March 2012)

I am putting together a workshop on Environmental History in
Lusophone countries (Portugal, Brasil, Mozambique, Angola, Guiné
Bissau, Timor Leste, São Tomé and Príncipe), to be held in Coimbra
(PT) in the last week of  March 2012, hopefully with support from the
Portuguese Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia. I would appreciate
any suggestions on possible  speakers and/or prospective participants.
Graduate students in  advanced stages of their dissertations are
particularly welcome. The  workshop will be in Portuguese and English,
and we plan to publish the proceedings shortly after. Anyone
interested in participating, or willing to help, may contact me at:

On censorship

Carmè Molinero claims again for open access on Spanish Archives. She describes in an article, recently published in Ayer –the Journal of the Spanish Contemporary Association–, how documentary censorship affects even now to our work. The evidence of a number of publications about the Spanish Dictatorship should be revisited, because censorship only affects this period by law. You can download the article free here [in Spanish].
