Description

The research group in Museum Studies (MuST) was launched in 2007 by the joint efforts of Raquel Henriques da Silva (RHS) at Universidade Nova de Lisboa and Lúcia Almeida Matos (LAM) at Universidade do Porto who have been actively involved in defining an academic space for Museum Studies in Portugal as well as in bringing together researchers from complementary areas of theory and practice in order to promote collaborations between museums and the academic world. Senior researchers of the group offer the ideal combination of scientific knowledge, practical experience and institutional/personal contacts that young researchers need to further develop their projects.
MuSt is coordinated by Lúcia Almeida Matos and is organized in three clusters, each with its own coordinator, young researchers, post-docs as well as collaborating researchers.
a) History of Art Museums in Portugal, coordinated by Raquel Henriques da Silva. This cluster includes young PhDs, and a group of current PhD students whose theses are centred on topics of relevance to the production of an History of Art Museums, and also look into private collectors, art market and historic exhibitions.  This cluster stemmed from FCT funded project “Sources for the History of Art Museums in Portugal”, led by RHS (2010-1013)
b) Documentation, Presentation and Reception of Contemporary Art, coordinated by Rita Macedo, aggregates integrated members, PhD students and collaborating members pursuing research in key subjects related to Contemporary Art museums and collections. This cluster stemmed from the FCT funded research project “Documentation of Contemporary Art” led by LAM (2011-2013).
c) Art in the Periphery, coordinated by Foteini Vlachou with the collaboration of Leonor Oliveira, and launched in 2013 (http://artintheperiphery.wordpress.com/). The cluster includes an international network of research associates around the subject of art in the periphery to explore the complexities of producing, collecting and displaying art in geographical peripheries, as well as the consequences of historiographic marginalization.
For the five years period between 2015 and 2020 the MuST group will focus on the following objectives: a) to enhance internationalization by establishing new partnerships and supporting participation in international conferences, b) to increase funded research through projects submission, c) to develop research in collaboration with museums, d) to improve publication quality and quantity, e) to bridge the gap between university and society, and f) to enhance participation of researchers in teaching and supervision.
