"This book is a remarkable achievement. On one hand, it critically transcends the risk of parochial colonial nostalgia implicit in 'Lusophone,' as much as it overcomes the implicit Anglophone bias of 'the Black Atlantic.'On the other, the historical and anthropological processes of colonial and diasporic formations are richly analyzed as encounters, as confrontations, and as settings for cultural creation." - Miguel Vale de Almeida, Professor of Social Anthropology, Instituto Superior de Ciências do Trabalho e da Empresa, Lisbon
Cultures of the Lusophone Black Atlanticby Nancy Priscilla Naro
This book addresses the Lusophone Black Atlantic as a space of historical and cultural production between Portugal, Brazil, and Africa. The authors demonstrate how it has been shaped by diverse colonial cultures including the Portuguese imperial project. The Lusophone context offers a unique perspective on the history of the Atlantic.
