English term or phrase:Slade Professor of Fine Arts
This is a term that appears in a forward of a book about sculpture. According to Yahoo, a Slade Professor of Fine Arts is a professor that is invited to give a certain number of lectures during a certain period of time, for example, a year. My difficulty lies in finding a portuguese equivalent.
Explanation: Eu preferiria esta expressão, pois é a que se usa nas universidades.
O professor é convidado a leccionar durante um período, sem, no entanto, pertencer ao quadro do estabelecimento de ensino.

Professor de Belas Artes Slade (na Universidade de Oxford)
Explanation: "Slade" is a proper noun, presumably the name of the benefactor of the chair of that name at Oxford University, and therefore not translatable.
The full title in English is Slade Professor of Fine Arts in the University of Oxford.
Lord (Kenneth) Clark - he of the 'Civilisation' TV series - was a former holder of the post.
