Doutor/a

Biografia

Graduated in History, variant Archaeology (2000), post-graduated in Documental Sciences (2007), defended a master’s (2008) and a PhD in Contemporary History (2013).

Among the issues raised in her research, the role of civil society in the construction of contemporary society stands out. Currently, she examines the evolution of the repertoire of institutionalized collective action looking at the long lasting institutions during contemporary period, in the form of mutual-aid and cooperative societies. Attempting to its internal functioning and institutional details, she wants to recognize and understand their efficiency dealing with the modern ‘social dilemmas’. With this aim, she makes use of new methods tested by the Institutions for Collective Action Research Team in the University of Utrecht, namely comparison between case studies with institutional success.

Integrating global studies, she’s also interested in the dissemination of this institutional designs across the areas of historical Portuguese influence and the transfers and entanglements revealed in the transnational ICA historical evolution.

She has works in the field of documental sciences, particularly in the identification and safeguard of the institutions for collective action historical archives. In these projects she uses a specific methodology, adjusting ISAD (G) to NGO’s archives, and the free software ICA-Atom to assure archival description and on-line disposal. She has been also partnering with public schools, bringing them closer to academy and science, within the IHC’s History Lab and LisbonLab.
