Anglo-Portuguese Studies is one of CETAPS's founding research groups. It was launched in 1981 under the coordination of Maria Leonor Machado de Sousa.
The British Culture and History Research Group, one of two such groups based in the Lisbon branch of the CETAPS, was launched in December 2008 under the coordination of Filipe Furtado.
The team was created in 2004 after the 5th International Conference of the Utopian Studies Society / Europe held in Porto.
This research group is defined by a commitment to forms of textual transit, cultural transfer, and intermediality.
This research group is located at the University of Porto and belongs to CETAPS, a centre committed to the study of the cultures and literatures of the English language.
This research area works within teacher education and provides “add-on value” to CETAPS in terms of research in the field of social and human sciences.
