RESEARCH GROUP DESCRIPTION AND ACHIEVEMENTS FOR 2008/2012
Description of the Research Group The research group on Culture, history and ideas in the Iberian and Ibero-American world was built on the basis of substantial work conducted between 2008 and 2012. Both the Centro de História da Cultura (CHC) and the Centro de História de Além-Mar (CHAM) gathered some of the Portuguese top specialists in this area to promote Iberian Studies, not only in research and publication of results, but also in teaching (both at the undergraduate and graduate level). As for CHAM’s contribution during this 5-year period, it must be stressed that some of the most relevant research projects sponsored by this research centre had a strong Iberian character. Apart from gathering many specialists from the fields of Iberian and Ibero-American history, CHAM developed scientific agreements with a substantial number of Spanish and Latin American universities, and collaborated, on a permanent-basis, in their graduate and postgraduate courses about Iberian and Ibero-American history. Also worth of note is the fact CHAM made a constant effort to include topics of Brazilian history in the more general research on the Ibero-American world. In other words, CHAM’s was committed to promoting a global approach to Ibero-American history, in which Brazil and its history were part of the Ibero-American past. Throughout the past five years CHAM’s researchers acquired wide experience in joint-surveys with foreign colleagues specialized in the Iberian and Ibero-American history, and they became part of the most important scientific networks devoted to this area of studies.

Philosophy and politics in the age of globalisation
Since March 2014, Carlos A. Gomes has developped a bilateral cooperation, in the areas of Philosophy of Culture and Political Science & Communication with M.A. Patricia Kaplanova (Univ. SCM Trnava, Slovakia).
Kaplanova was interested in understanding and analyzing general processes of post-Modernity and globalization, democratization, theories of democracy and European union studies. She intended and willed to be specialized on Hispanic and Latino-american studies. This bilateral cooperation included exchanging and sharing of specialized articles, by written or digital posting; short seminars, conferences and lectures.
During her stay in Lisbon, in July 2014, she had some diferent experiences about how to explore several contextes of this academical working visit. After the opportunity and performances of Patricia’s presentations, at conferences, about some contemporary issues in politics today, she could concluded that for scientist/academics there are lots of connections between culture and politics, itself. The second level of her experience during the first step of this Exchange Project, was to explore, understand and thematize the specific characteristics of Portuguese culture, in several ways (social, economic, sociologic and cultural).
