Short description: 

The Centre for Portuguese Literature (CLP) is a Unit of Research and Development funded by the Science and Technology Foundation (FCT) since 2003. The Centre is located at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at the University of Coimbra, and it includes researchers based both at the University of Coimbra and at other research institutions. This new unit of R&D has resumed the work of the former Centre of Portuguese Literature, which was originally established in the 1980s. At present, the Centre has two main working spaces: the CLP room and the Ferreira Lima seminar room.
Mission

The mission of the Centre for Portuguese Literature is the study and dissemination of Portuguese Literature as both patrimony and ongoing practice. Our main goals are the creation of an organic framework for researching Portuguese Literature, from interdisciplinary and comparative perspectives, and to foster critical dialogue between the main trends in Theory and Literary Studies. The CLP also aims at developing pedagogical and scientific exchange programmes with similar national and international institutions, which includes supporting student research by welcoming them in specific projects and encouraging their participation in conferences (some of which have been specifically conceived for that purpose).

In order to fulfill this mission, the CLP develops research projects and promotes scientific meetings, autonomously or in partnership with other national and international institutions. The CLP members are also responsible for different types of courses, seminars, and programmes. Currently, the CLP promotes two Masters programme and three PhD programmes, as well as several short-term programmes which do not confer a degree.
