Abstract

Our proposal intends to present a brief overview about the medieval studies developed in two Brazilian universities with their respective laboratories: Vivarium (Universidade Federal de Mato Grosso) and Meridianum (Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina). In general lines, the research conducted in these two spaces of interdisciplinary and inter-institutional dialogue emphasise the different ways to educate, the power relations, and the recurrent cultural exchanges in the Middle Ages. Education that brought itself the amalgam of different knowledges (oral and literate), power relations based on negotiations and accommodations and cultural meetings that demonstrate the polysemy common to the societies analysed. Moreover, the main purpose of this session is to highlight the need to discuss and criticise the ideological subtleties and common places of historiography with the intention of taking into account not only one medieval culture, but medieval cultures marked by the impositions of the daily life, by the limits of the powers established and by the references left by traditions with which men and women raised their individual and collective trajectories.
