Atlantic routes: women and postcolonial experience

April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2015
24 months

This cooperation seeks to analyze a literary corpus mainly written by women, tracing a triangulation between Portugal, Brazil and Angola as a space of memories and experiences. This analysis will be based on a theoretical reflection that combines a postcolonial perspective and women studies. Considering the lusophone scope of studies on Atlantic routes this approach is both innovative and challenging. This cooperation promotes cutting edge research and PhD and post doctoral training.
