The program ‘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 the Intangible Cultural Heritage. Focused on interdisciplinary research, the program addresses issues such as the porous borders between material/immaterial heritage; natural/cultural heritage; heritage and arts; the role of museums and tourism in the objectification of culture; circulation and rescaling of cultural forms; the interplay between material and immaterial forms of cultural expression; the study of rituals and other cultural performances and heritage policies.

Besides the incidence on cultural practices and on Intangible Cultural Heritage in Portugal, the program extends its scope to other contexts of research, highlighting the relationship between heritage, citizenship and cosmopolitanism, transnationalism, international relations and cultural diplomacy.

The program aims to train researches and professionals highly qualified with particular emphasis on Immaterial Cultural Heritage, and to be an academic forum for the research and critical debate of the processes associated to heritage, as well as to impart professional competences that enable the pursuing of an active role in society.

Directors: Filipe Reis (ISCTE) e Maria Cardeira da Silva (FCSH)
