The doctoral programme ‘Anthropology: Politics and Displays of Culture and Museology’ aims to provide a diversified and critical approach to contemporary issues related to the production and reproduction of cultural forms with special emphasis on Intangible Cultural Heritage. Although the programme focuses on cultural practices and on Intangible Cultural Heritage in Portugal, it also covers research in three geographical areas: Mediterranean countries, Brazil and African Portuguese-speaking countries. This programme has a strong interdisciplinary component, focuses on research and the acquisition of professional competences in order to coordinate with UNESCO and ICTM (International Council of Traditional Music), and privileges the students’ mobility.

Focused on expressive cultures, the program addresses issues such as:

  • the study of rituals and cultural performances,
  • the interface between natural and cultural heritage,
  • the role of museums and tourism in the objectification of culture,
  • the circulation and rescaling of cultural forms,
  • the interplay between material and immaterial forms of cultural expressions.

The FCT funded PhD in Anthropology: Politics and Displays of Culture and Museology opened in October 2013 and October 2015, each edition having awarded 8 FCT PhD studentships (4 national studentships and 4 mix studentships).
