Empires, Colonialism and Post-colonial Societies

Empires, Colonialism and Post-colonial Societies

EMPIRES research the past and present significance of imperial and colonial formations in the Portuguese-speaking world. It adopts a critical, comparative, and long-term perspective in the study of the Portuguese Empire and its legacies in Lusophone countries and beyond. EMPIRES is distinctive for its cross-disciplinary combination of History and Anthropology, historiography and ethnographic theory. It results from the collaboration of an interdisciplinary team of social anthropologists and early modern and contemporary historians, specializing in Lusophone Asian, African and Latin American contexts. It thus aims at investigating transits, shifts, and connections between colonial and post-colonial, imperial and post-imperial, processes in different historical periods and geographical settings. It places the Portuguese case within a wide global setting both historically and historiographically, while seeking inclusive anthropological perspectives that articulate both European and Non-European agencies, cultures and historicities.

The research group privileges the study of 5 core themes:

  • Government and power: political and economic rule; elites; urban governance; space and land rights; violence and conflict; critique of and resistance to colonial power;
  •  Knowledge, science, and belief: forms of knowledge (colonial, indigenous, scientific); archives, exhibitions and museums; cultural encounters; religious conversion; appropriations of Christianity;
  • Identity, difference and inclusion: dynamics of identity and difference; gender; law, justice and citizenship; racism and inequality in colonial/post-colonial contexts;
  • Labor and exchanges: labor and slavery; diasporas and returnees; capital and labor; markets and exchange; nature, wealth and exploitation of environmental resources;
  • Memory and legacies: expressions of remembering and forgetting colonial and imperial experiences; colonial memory in contemporary societies; indigenous historicities.
