Abstract


This carefully edited volume brings together a collection of original essays that through diverse approaches to a broad scope of materials explores cultural and literary representations of the Portuguese expansion and former empire, and postcolonialism in the Portuguese-speaking world. The volume functions as a whole because of the carefully constructed interconnections of gender, race, politics, class and imperialism, among other themes, that are woven throughout the studies, and that are enriched by varying positionalities that include different Portuguese-speaking geographic regions and theoretical points of reference.
