(Only) a Glimpse of Ancient History: Knowledge Production in Portuguese Universities (2010-2018)


In this paper we overview the recent production of PhDs in the Portuguese university in Ancient History. Although the scarce number of data, we can detect trends and common realities, the most evident of all the severe impact of the economic crisis. Also, a more conventional approach in the themes is very manifest, meaning that the Portuguese research is less innovative that similar directions we can see in other countries. The combination of the effects means that Portuguese research in Ancient History is facing more difficulties in renewing its generations, in spite a more positive trend in most recent years.
Neste artigo, apresentamos uma visão geral das teses defendidas recentemente nas universidades portuguesas no âmbito da História Antiga. Apesar do número escasso de dados, podemos detectar tendências e realidades comuns, com o impacto severo da crise económica em lugar de destaque. Além disso, manifesta-se de forma maios visível uma abordagem mais convencional nos temas, o que significa que a pesquisa portuguesa é menos inovadora das opções tomadas em outros países. A combinação destes dados significa que as pesquisas portuguesas em História Antiga enfrentam mais dificuldades em renovar suas gerações, apesar de se verificar uma tendência mais positiva nos últimos anos.
