In May 2019, King's College London hosted an event celebrating the centenary of the Portuguese Camoes Chair, which was created in 1919. With the support of the Embassies of Brazil, Portugal, Angola, and Mozambique, the event also celebrated the International Day of Portuguese Language. The event included sessions introduced by ambassadors in which academics from King's College discussed Portuguese, Brazilian and Lusophone African Studies in the United Kingdom. It was followed by a musical performance and readings from Portuguese-speaking authors.
