Abstract
Following two conferences organized in France, namely "Les sociétés européennes et la guerre de 1914-1918" (Nanterre, 1988) and "Guerre et cultures" (Historial de Péronne, 1992), the notion of war culture—a central feature in this issue—has come to be defined as a set of mental tools that contemporary men and women resorted to in order to make the conflict intelligible and meaningful. In Portugal, the scholarship undertaken under this historiographical umbrella has only been developed in the 21st century, with just a few exceptions. Interest in this perspective, which is less widely discussed in Portugal, has led researchers to propose this special issue of the e-Journal of Portuguese History, which is intended to cover “a set of practices, representations, attitudes and creations from the years 1914-1918,” but also from the aftermath of the war.
A partir de duas conferências organizadas na França – «Les sociétés européennes et la guerre de 1914-1918» (Nanterre, 1988) e «Guerre et cultures» (Historial de Péronne, 1992) – a noção da cultura de guerra, questão central nesta edição, tem sido definida como um conjunto de ferramentas mentais a que homens e mulheres contemporâneos recorrem para poderem fazer do conflito algo inteligível e significativo. Em Portugal, as pesquisas que se colocam dentro deste conceito historiográfico se desenvolveram apenas no século XXI, com poucas exceções. O interesse nesta perspectiva, que é algo pouco discutido em Portugal, levou-nos a propor esta edição especial do e-Journal of Portuguese History, que pretende cobrir um conjunto de práticas, representações, atitudes e criações dos anos 1914-1918 e também do período pós-guerra.
