 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
I am currently a research associate in the Centro em Rede de Investigação em Antropologia (CRIA) at ISCTE-
University Institute of Lisbon (ISCTE-IUL), in Portugal. I have been teaching at the Department of History of the
ISCTE-IUL for nine years. I have conducted research internationally—Portugal, France, Brazil and US. I have also
taught at international institutes and universities, gained several European research awards, and presented and
published in many international forums.
In 2003, I received a doctoral degree from Lumière University – Lyon 2 (France), with a dissertation entitled ‘The
inhabitants of Alcântara in the early twentieth century. Identity, social distance and proximity in an industrialized
neighborhood of Lisbon. This dissertation critically and diachronically examined the genesis of a distinct urban
identity in an outlying quarter of early 20th century Lisbon. Since 2008, the main focus of my research has been
on tourism and urban transformations in Portugal. My archival work has documented the durable effects of
tourism in altering landscape, city layout and perceptions about urban living. In other words, my work examines
the historical processes through which cities become tourist centers to be experienced, lived, and often
permanently altered by the practices of their most transient dwellers.
More recently, I opened my research to the American experience abroad when I studied the presence of American
tourists in Macao and Canton during the late 19th century. That research is based on American traveling accounts
(found in Boston area archives) written by traders from the Boston area, which richly described 19th century
Macau and Canton as emerging cosmopolitan centers. This archival research was conducted in spring 2013 while I
was a research fellow at the University of Massachusetts Boston, under the guidance and support of Professor Wei-
Li Ye (Department of History, University of Massachusetts Boston) and Professor Tim Sieber (Department of
Anthropology, University of Massachusetts Boston). Subsequently, during the fall 2013, I was awarded a position of
visiting professor at the Centro de Pesquisa e Documentação de História Contemporânea do Brasil at Fundação
Getúlio Vargas (CPDOC/FGV, Rio de Janeiro) which allowed me to explore the evolving tourist representations of
Rio in the 20th century. During the spring 2015, I was awarded the Hélio and Amélia Pedroso / Luso-American
Foundation Endowed Chair in Portuguese Studies at the Center for Portuguese Studies and Culture at the University
of Massachusetts Dartmouth.
