    The opening of the vacancy procedure, as well as the appointment of the selection board, were authorised by order of the Rector of the NOVA University of Lisbon, on 14 July 2022, following the assent of the Scientific Council of the NOVA FCSH.

    3 - Description of the vacancy:

    The project ARTHE aims to identify, map, and study the state of the art of theatre archives in Portugal, in order to establish a plan of good practices involving a network of institutions. Starting from the analysis of two important archives recently donated to the Center for Theatre Studies (FLUL) and extending the research methodology to other archives of theatre companies in the country, it will seek to deepen the analysis of public and private conservation policies, to promote their preservation, accessibility, and study. Having as a starting point the so-called “Independent” Theatre (name given to the heterogeneous group of non-commercial companies that grew after the 25th of April) but not limited to it, rather looking for a broad cartography that looks for affiliations, descendants, and influences, both national and international, it also aims to contribute to the discussion on the role of archival practices, as artists and academics have been doing, for the construction of historiographies of transnational and decentered performing arts.

    The contracted researcher will form part of the project team, participating in the following scientific research and knowledge dissemination tasks:

  • preparation of research instruments and methods of data study;
  • validation of collected data;
  • documentary record through interviews;
  • information processing, editing, and publication;
  • participation in the elaboration of a manual of good practices for dissemination to theatre companies;
  • publication of results produced during the research.
