In this paper I discuss the situation of cultural studies in Portugal by looking into its presence in Portuguese universities and research centres; especially through their master and doctoral programmes. My results suggest that cultural studies is experiencing a fast academic expansion. Yet; the name ‘cultural studies’ continues to cause unease in some academic quarters (namely; in literary studies) and there is ambiguity regarding what is meant by it. My results also suggest that the current expansion of cultural studies in the academia is entangled with top-down institutional changes; closely related to the Bologna process and the growing importance of the cultural industries; as part of a more general shift to the ‘new economy’.
