Offered by the University of Coimbra since 2010, Heritages of Portuguese Influence is an international doctoral programme since 2012. With an interdisciplinary nature and scope, it studies the cultural heritages of the communities and territories that were influenced by the Portuguese diasporas, focusing on landscape and language, the cornerstones of living heritages. Mobilizing approaches coming from Architecture, Urbanism, Cultural Studies, Arts and History, it provides a multidisciplinary and multifaceted assessment of heritage as a cultural as well as a political argument and practice, placing its history and its potential as a tool for sustainable development at the
forefront of all enquiries.
