Martins, Catarina Silva

Prof. Catarina Silva Martins is the Head of the Research Institute in Art, Design and Society and Professor at the Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Porto. Her research interest lies in rethinking arts education curriculum studies in the present from a historical approach focusing on the systems of reason that govern policy and research. Her previous work has examined the historical intersection of art education with cultural distinctions and divisions inscribed in notions of the artist, inventiveness, and genius that emerged at the turn of the century in Portugal.
