Gender, Empire, and Postcolony: Luso-Afro-Brazilian Intersections is a collection of essays on gender in Portuguese colonialism and Lusophone postcolonialism. The contributors engage systematically with postcolonial and gender theory as they examine the diverse universe of cultural production that has directed itself to Lusophone colonial and postcolonial experience and legacy, including literature, cinema, and other visual arts. The volume builds on existing critiques of Lusotropicalism while affording important new space for Lusophone dialogue with mainstream postcolonial theory. Beyond its core audience of Luso-Afro-Brazilian studies specialists, Gender, Empire, and Postcolony will interest scholars and students of colonial history and postcolonial theory; African and Latin American studies; and film studies and art history.
