Description

The research group MuST – Museum Studies was launched in 2007, by Silva (FCSH-NOVA) and Matos (Universidade do Porto), aiming at creating an important and necessary academic space for Museum Studies in Portugal. The group has constantly grown since its creation, and it now comprises a team of more than 20 postdoctoral researchers, including professors, postdoctoral fellows and museum experts and professionals. Its vitality is also reflected in a large number of junior and doctoral researchers (currently 18).
Despite its diversity, MuST is a cohesive group: recent results are regularly shared amongst researchers at all career levels in the Annual Group Meeting that takes place by turns in Lisbon or Porto. Coordinated by Silva, MUST follows a project-based organisation and also hosts 2 recently formed Clusters: ‘Art Market and Collecting’ and ‘Curating Contemporary Cultures’.
Research-wise, MuST promotes rigorous, high-level inquiries in the expanded field of museum studies. Its activities cover topics as different as the history and theory of museums and exhibitions, artistic and museological policies, national representations in international events, documentation of contemporary art, photography and identity on display, art market and collections, virtual museology, curatorship or digital humanities. In the past years, the group has been able to successfully attract project partners from key society spheres and secure multi-source funding.
MuST focuses on the following objectives: a) reinforce internationalization levels, through new partnerships, networks, and international conferences; b) increase the rate and the ambition of projects submission; c) foster institutional collaboration, namely with museums and collections; d) improve the strategy of scientific publication; e) bridge the gap between university and society; f) encourage participation of researchers in teaching and supervision.
