Arnaldo Araújo Research Center (CEAA) of the Escola Superior Artística do Porto is a research unit recognized by FCT (uID 4041) that develops research in the area of Artistic Studies, concretely in the territories of Theory, Criticism and History.
At present, CEAA is organized into three research groups and one research line
G1 | Architecture Studies Group
G2 | Film Studies Group
G3 | Group of Art and Critical Studies
Research line: Common Place
The Group of Studies of Architecture is directed by Maria Helena Maia and conducts research in three major thematic areas, the last one linked with theater:
1. Architecture, Territory and Landscape
2. Strong Relations
3. Dramatic Architectures
The Autonomous Section of Theory and History is an academic structure coordinating the scientific areas of Theory and Criticism of Art, Theory and Critique of Architecture, Theater Theory and Criticism, History of Art, History of Architecture and Social Sciences and their respective curricular units , which develops a close scientific-pedagogical articulation with the courses that integrate it.
Among other responsibilities, SATH is responsible for organizing and developing research in its scientific areas, promoting research groups and projects, in addition to individual research, as well as supporting the activities and initiatives of faculty and researchers in the field of research.
Currently, SATH shares with the other departments of ESAP a research policy that goes through two types of actions:
1. The encouragement of the formation of research teams led by professors from SATH, through the funding of short-term collective research projects, ie ESAP Projects.
2. Raising students’ awareness of the research, through the provision of Credit Research Internships (ECI) carried out in the context of ongoing projects.
In 2015, three research projects are underway at SATH, one of which is related to the Degree in Theater:
Dramatic Architectures 2015 (ESAP / 2015 / P24 / SATH). Principal Investigator: Jorge Palinhos
