PORTofCALL aims at studying the relation between African-Asian-European encounters during the Early Modern period and the cultural heritage of the Indian Ocean’s port settlements of Portuguese influence. By highlighting the diversity and values of those heritage sites, the project will create vision and tools for their future usage and manageable conservation, focusing on five representative cases. Adopting an interdisciplinary approach, the team will look at port settlements in the contexts of their regional maritime networks, and their respective hinterlands, addressing both urban settings and rural habitats as intertwined cultural landscapes of encounters and negotiated interactions.

Throughout the development of the project, several activities will be promoted.
