  • New instructions to authors and the future of the scientific article in
           the human sciences

  • From settlements to the botanical garden: the appropriation of plants used
           by indigenous peoples in the captaincy of Guayases, 1772-1806

    • Abstract: Resumo O artigo pretende contribuir com a história das ciências, a história indígena e a história da América portuguesa. Parte-se dos pressupostos metodológicos de Dominique Pestre e da historiografia sobre a América portuguesa para interrogar a existência de uma rede de aldeamentos indígenas, a atuação de funcionários com saberes naturalistas, o envio de espécies botânicas para análise em Portugal e, por fim, a fundação de um horto botânico na capitania de Guayases (Goiás) entre 1772 e 1806. Apresenta-se a contribuição indígena na construção dos conhecimentos da história natural e discutem-se as influências de concepções da Ilustração na reforma do sistema colonial português na capitania a partir de documentação administrativa portuguesa, cartas e do estudo da aplicação de leis e instruções. The article intends to contribute to the history of science, indigenous history and the history of Portuguese America. We begin with the methodological assumptions of Dominique Pestre and the historiography on Portuguese America to investigate a network of indigenous settlements, the work of civil servants with naturalist knowledge, the shipment of botanical species for analysis in Portugal and, finally, the foundation of a botanical garden in the captaincy of Guayases (Goiás) from 1772 to 1806. We describe the indigenous contribution to the construction of natural history knowledge, and discuss the influence of Enlightenment concepts on the reform of the Portuguese colonial system in the captaincy based on Portuguese administrative documentation, letters and study of the application of laws and instructions.
  • An analysis of actions taken by Fundação Oswaldo Cruz for the
           communication and popularization of science

    • Abstract: Resumo Neste trabalho apresentamos uma análise das ações de divulgação e popularização da ciência na Fiocruz a partir de duas perspectivas. O estudo tem por objetivo investigar como se organiza um sistema de divulgação e popularização da ciência em uma instituição científica de grande porte e como esse sistema se articula com seu discurso institucional. Além de fazer uma breve revisão da evolução do tema na história da Fiocruz, realizamos um levantamento de como o mesmo tem sido tratado nos documentos oficiais de planejamento. Com o mapeamento das ações realizadas em 2015 e 2016, foi possível compreender melhor esse universo e classificá-lo de acordo com suas características junto ao público. An analysis is presented of actions taken by the Brazilian research institution Fiocruz for the communication and popularization of science, from two perspectives. The aim was to investigate how a system for the communication and popularization of science is organized at a large scientific institution and how it is articulated with the institutional discourse. A brief review is presented of how the topic has developed over the history of Fiocruz, followed by a discussion of the way it has been addressed in its official planning documents. The science communication/popularization actions undertaken in 2015 and 2016 were mapped out and classified according to how they interact with the public, giving a better understanding of this area.
  • Evidence-based medicine: a brief historical analysis of conceptual
           landmarks and practical goals for care

    • Abstract: Resumo A medicina baseada em evidências (MBE) pretende aumentar a eficiência e qualidade dos serviços de saúde prestados à população e diminuir os custos operacionais dos processos de prevenção, tratamento e reabilitação. Busca identificar problemas relevantes do paciente e promover a aplicabilidade social das conclusões. O artigo ressalta a importância da MBE para o ensino e para as práticas clínicas sociais da atualidade a partir da contribuição de Archibald Cochrane e David Sackett no desenvolvimento e na difusão desse paradigma assistencial e pedagógico durante o século XX. A MBE tem contribuído para ampliar a discussão sobre as relações entre ensino e prática da medicina, assumindo papel de destaque em reformas curriculares e modelos de formação no cuidado e práticas em saúde. Evidence-based medicine (EBM) is intended to improve the efficiency and quality of health services provided to the population and reduce the operational costs of prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation; the objective of EBM is to identify relevant issues and promote the social applicability of conclusions. This article underscores the importance of EBM in modern clinical teaching and social practices from the contributions of Archibald Cochrane and David Sackett to the development and dissemination of this paradigm in care and education during the twentieth century. EBM has helped broaden discussions on the relationships between teaching and medical practice, and has taken on an important role in curriculum reforms and training models and practices in health care.
  • Readings about developmentalist health and interpretations for the
           Brazilian health reform and public health

    • Abstract: Resumo Na literatura do campo da saúde coletiva há uma construção que sustenta a associação entre o movimento pela reforma sanitária dos anos 1970 e o que se denominou sanitarismo desenvolvimentista. A partir dos discursos de dois sanitaristas do período desenvolvimentista – Mário Magalhães da Silveira e Carlos Gentile de Mello –, buscou-se reconhecer como se deu a construção desse lugar de “precursor” da reforma sanitária. Foi feita a análise das interfaces entre a saúde coletiva, o pensamento desenvolvimentista, a estratégia de construção do “sanitarista desenvolvimentista” e a reforma sanitária. Sem negar o papel precursor daqueles sanitaristas, argumenta-se que a construção do Sistema Único de Saúde não é uma mera continuidade do pensamento desenvolvimentista. In the Brazilian public health literature, an association has been drawn between the 1970s health reform movement and what has been called developmentalist health. By investigating the discourse of two sanitarians from the developmentalist period – Mario Magalhães da Silveira and Carlos Gentile de Mello – we seek to unpick how their status of “precursors” of the health reform was constructed, analyzing the interfaces between public health, developmentalist thinking, the strategy for the construction of the developmentalist health and the health reform. Without refuting the pioneering nature of the sanitarians’ ideas, we argue that the Brazilian Unified Health System, Sistema Único de Saúde, was created not simply in continuation of developmentalist thinking.
  • Stigmas, studies, and strife: a history of Brazilian pemphigus, nineteenth
           and twentieth centuries

    • Abstract: Resumo O artigo apresenta uma narrativa histórica sobre a incidência do pênfigo foliáceo no Brasil ao longo dos séculos XIX e XX. Doença bolhosa autoimune da pele que acomete com mais frequência crianças, adolescentes e adultos jovens que vivem nas áreas rurais de regiões endêmicas. Foi descrita pela primeira vez no país em 1903, pelo médico Caramuru Paes Leme. Os principais focos se situam no Distrito Federal e nos estados de Goiás, Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso do Sul, Minas Gerais, Paraná e São Paulo. Temática de pesquisa amplamente visitada pela ciência médica, em especial a dermatologia, não tem merecido a atenção peculiar por parte dos historiadores da saúde e da doença. This paper presents a historical narrative about the incidence of pemphigus foliaceus in Brazil in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. This autoimmune blistering skin disease is more common in children, adolescents, and young adults who live in rural areas of endemic regions. It was first described in Brazil in 1903 by the physician Caramuru Paes Leme. The main foci of the disease are in the Federal District and the states of Goiás, Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso do Sul, Minas Gerais, Paraná, and São Paulo. This research topic, which has attracted widespread attention from medical practice, especially dermatology, has not received similar attention from historians of health and disease.
  • Teaching sociology in the nineteenth century: experiences in the state of
           Amazonas, 1890-1900

    • Abstract: Resumo O artigo evidencia a presença do ensino de sociologia no Brasil no século XIX. As fontes remetem ao Diário Oficial do Estado do Amazonas e ao jornal Amazonas publicados entre 1890 e 1900, onde identificam-se experiências no estado do Amazonas. O referencial teórico-metodológico centra-se na análise documental e no conceito de “campo” de Bourdieu, no intuito de compreender as dinâmicas de inserção da sociologia na escola normal e no ensino secundário brasileiro. Os resultados revelam a formação do professorado, o número de alunos, os conteúdos e a sua configuração no currículo escolar, a influência das leis federais e a circulação internacional das ideias na proposição do ensino de sociologia. This article depicts the teaching of sociology in nineteenth-century Brazil, using sources such as the Diário Oficial do Estado do Amazonas and the Amazonas newspaper published between 1890 and 1900 that convey experiences in the state of Amazonas. The theoretical-methodological approach focuses on document analysis and Bourdieu’s concept of “field” in order to understand the dynamics of how sociology was situated within normal schools and secondary education in Brazil. The results illustrate teacher training, the number of students, the content and its inclusion in the curriculum, the influence of federal laws, and international circulation of ideas in the teaching of sociology.
  • Dance and movement as therapeutic processes: historical context and

    • Abstract: Resumo O artigo apresenta e discute as atuais abordagens que se utilizam do corpo em movimento com propósito terapêutico, assinalando o contexto histórico de seu desenvolvimento e destacando seus principais conceitos e práticas. Identificamos as propostas psicoterápicas mais citadas na literatura acadêmica e no contexto de atuação profissional, em especial a dança-movimento terapia, abarcando oito principais abordagens, e as danças terapêuticas, não estritamente pertencentes ao campo psicoterápico, como a biodança e os grupos que aliam dança contemporânea aos princípios da educação somática. Sistematizamos em quadro comparativo as abordagens apresentadas, discutindo suas aproximações e seus afastamentos, de modo a contribuir para a identificação mais precisa de cada abordagem e maior diálogo entre as vertentes. This article discusses current therapeutic approaches that use the body in motion, noting the historical context and highlighting the main concepts and practices. The most frequently cited psychotherapeutic suggestions in the academic literature and in professional practice are identified, particularly dance/movement therapy (with eight main approaches) and therapeutic dance practices not strictly located within the field of psychotherapy (such as biodance and groups that link contemporary dance with the principles of somatic education). These approaches are compared and contrasted to more precisely identify each approach and augment dialog between them.
  • Scientific and technological diplomacy: the trajectory of Júlio
           Constâncio de Villeneuve

    • Abstract: Resumo Partindo de uma investigação sobre a vida, a obra e o pensamento do diplomata Júlio Constâncio de Villeneuve, conde de Villeneuve, o artigo propõe uma reflexão sobre iniciativas e objetivos da diplomacia brasileira nas últimas décadas do Segundo Reinado. O foco da análise recai sobre o papel que objetos concernentes ao campo científico-tecnológico assumiam em um contexto de profundas transformações nas diretrizes de política externa do Império, sendo tomados como fatores importantes em uma nova estratégia de inserção internacional adotada após a Guerra da Tríplice Aliança. This article examines the life, work, and thinking of the diplomat Júlio Constâncio, Count of Villeneuve, reflecting on the initiatives and objectives of Brazilian diplomacy during the final decades of Emperor Pedro II’s reign. The analysis is based on the role that objects related to science and technology played within a context of profound changes in the Empire’s foreign policy, as important factors in a new strategy to position the country internationally after the War of the Triple Alliance.
  • “Cântico dos cânticos, quântico dos quânticos:” dialogical
           relationships between art, contemporary science, and health in the album
           Quanta by Gilberto Gil

    • Abstract: Resumo O trabalho apresenta uma análise metalinguística de canções que compõem o álbum Quanta, de Gilberto Gil, explicitando as relações dialógicas que o enunciado artístico pode estabelecer com as ciências contemporâneas e com uma visão de saúde. Para tanto, é feita uma breve apresentação sobre o quadro teórico-metodológico a ser utilizado, a metalinguística de Bakhtin, e, a partir dele, são estabelecidos três eixos de análise, privilegiando a concepção de ciência, de física quântica e de saúde e cura presentes no álbum e evidenciando as complexas relações entre arte, física e saúde. This article presents a metalinguistic analysis of the songs comprising the album Quanta by Gilberto Gil, highlighting the dialogical relationships that artistic endeavors can establish between contemporary science and a vision of health. This involves a brief introduction of the theoretical/methodological framework and Bakhtin’s metalinguistics, followed by the establishment of three different analytical threads that follow the concepts of science, quantum physics, and health and healing which are present in the album, depicting the complex relationships between art, physics and health.
  • From counterculture to somatherapy: the creation and early development of
           an anarchist therapy

    • Abstract: Resumo Este trabalho faz parte de uma pesquisa maior, na qual se procura compreender como a somaterapia de Roberto Freire surgiu e se desenvolveu a partir da contracultura dos anos 1970. Abordam-se a criação e o desenvolvimento inicial da somaterapia, partindo do que se compreende ser um “mito de criação”: uma narrativa ordenada e coerente que explica o surgimento da terapia e que aparece, de forma recorrente, com poucas alterações. Analisam-se, ainda, narrativas posteriores a esse período que remetem ao processo de nomeação da somaterapia. Nesta análise, são encontrados conflitos de dados e incongruências que indicam a complexidade desses processos e o esforço dos autores no sentido de ordenação e legitimação da técnica terapêutica. This work is part of a larger survey on how Roberto Freire’s somatherapy emerged and developed from the counterculture of the 1970s, addressing the creation and initial development of somatherapy, starting from what is understood to be a “creation myth,” an orderly and coherent narrative explaining the emergence of this therapy that is frequently repeated with few changes. Later narratives referring to the process of naming somatherapy are also examined, revealing inconsistencies and conflicts in the data that indicate the complexity of these processes and the authors’ efforts to add order and legitimacy to this therapeutic technique.
  • Framing the Latin American nutrition transition in a historical
           perspective, 1850 to the present

    • Abstract: This paper argues that many of the foundations and trends that led to the rise in obesity and other diet-related health problems in Latin America began to develop in the late nineteenth century. The tendency towards presentism in the nutrition transition literature provides a much abbreviated and limited history of changes in diet and weight. Whereas medical and nutrition researchers have tended to emphasize the recent onset of the crisis, a historical perspective suggests that increasingly global food sourcing prompted changes in foodways and a gradual “fattening” of Latin America. This paper also provides a methodological and historiographic exploration of how to historicize the nutrition transition, drawing on a diverse array of sources from pre-1980 to the present.Resumo Este trabalho argumenta que fundamentos e tendências que levaram ao aumento da obesidade e de outros problemas de saúde relacionados à alimentação na América Latina começaram a surgir no final do século XIX. A propensão ao presentismo na literatura sobre transição nutricional produz uma história abreviada e limitada das mudanças em alimentação e peso. Embora pesquisadores médicos e nutricionistas enfatizem a recente instalação da crise, uma perspectiva histórica sugere que fontes alimentares crescentemente globalizadas resultaram em mudanças na alimentação e em gradual “aumento de gordura” na população latino-americana. O artigo propõe ainda a exploração metodológica e historiográfica de como historicizar a transição nutricional recorrendo a fontes pré-1980 até o momento.
  • The challenge of (re)emerging diseases, the limits of the biomedical
           response and the new paradigm of global health

    • Abstract: Resumen Las “enfermedades infecciosas emergentes y reemergentes” constituyen una creciente amenaza para la hegemonía de la biomedicina, al suscitar no pocos interrogantes sobre la idoneidad de su discurso y prácticas para afrontar el desafío global que representan. Se analiza el proceso de construcción de esta nueva categoría nosológica, y se examinan ejemplos destacados del impacto de las enfermedades (re)emergentes en la salud pública, la seguridad alimentaria y el desarrollo humano a escala global. Se refiere a prácticas irresponsables de sectores de la industria farmacéutica y agropecuaria, determinantes en su desencadenamiento y diseminación; y a algunos fallos cruciales de enfoque y manejo de los tiempos en las políticas de salud global en relación al VIH/sida con desastrosas consecuencias para el África subsahariana. “Emerging and reemerging infectious diseases” pose a growing threat to the hegemony of biomedicine, raising questions about whether its discourse and practices can handle the global challenge they represent. The construction of this new nosological category is analyzed in this article, which examines some notable examples of the impact of (re)emerging diseases on public health, food security and human development on a global scale. It discusses irresponsible practices by sectors of the pharmaceutical and agricultural industries which led to the emergence and spread of these diseases; and points to some crucial failures of approach and time management in global health policies on HIV/AIDS, with disastrous consequences for sub-Saharan Africa.

           Institute of Tropical Medicine in Portugal, 1943-1966

    • Abstract: This work focuses on the scientific research conducted by women at Portugal’s Institute of Tropical Medicine between 1943 and 1966. The Institute’s scientific journal documents the participation of women in tropical medicine during this period. Their publications addressed a variety of subjects and resulted from research carried out in the metropolis as well as Portugal’s overseas colonies. Most of the articles written by these women were are co-authored by their male colleagues, reflecting the incorporation of female researchers into scientific networks already established by men. This work in progress provides a starting point to lend visibility to a group of scientific actors who are practically absent from the historiography of tropical medicine.Resumo O foco deste trabalho é a pesquisa científica realizada por mulheres no Instituto de Medicina Tropical, em Portugal, entre 1943 e 1966.
