This event aims to bring together academics, researchers and Portuguese research centres and academic institutions which have been devoted to Cultural Studies over the last two decades. The aim is to map the area in Portugal, seeking to enhance its interdisciplinary and interinstitutional development, through partnerships in projects and between research centres; to affirm the vitality of the area; and to strengthen the National Network in Cultural Studies.
