Aims & Scope
Since Portuguese Cultural Studies or P was founded at the University of Utrecht in 2007 it has fostered open critical and theoretical discussions on a wide range of issues, which have impacted the Portuguese-speaking world, as manifested in its cultural productions. Through such dialogue, it has been able to present differing viewpoints on the issues of our time and to generate thoughtful and critical analyses about them. The Journal, grounded on a platform that integrates interdisciplinary approaches from different disciplines, is committed to expanding both critical and theoretical perspectives and approaches beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries. Thus, it promotes scholarship that investigates both traditional cultural manifestations and popular or marginal cultural artifacts, as it attempts to bring together a transnational understanding of cultural production and consumption. Furthermore, it strongly encourages research that engages with newly emergent theoretical and critical modes of inquiry.
