Portuguese Literary & Cultural Studies is a multilingual, peer-reviewed journal published twice a year by the Center for Portuguese Studies and Culture at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. The journal addresses the literatures and cultures of the diverse and vast communities of the Portuguese-speaking world, composed of approximately 200 million people in seven countries in three continents, and the many other Lusophone communities in the United States and throughout the world. The journal encourages a wide diversity of theoretical and critical approaches, not being limited to any school of thought or political orientation. Cultural studies, as suggested in the title, is intended to be understood in its widest sense as the study of a variety of cultural expressions from a broad range of perspectives.
