Future Research My plans for future research include studies of visual culture in contemporary Portugal and lusophone Africa and particularly the cinema of Flora Gomes, and representations of gender, sexuality and identity in lusophone popular music. Saramago's 'other' Pessoas and 'Pessoan' others: heteronymic creation and the ethics of alterity.

Tiptoe Through Genesis

Refitting the lexicon of resistance: Saramago, symbolism and dictatorship. Writing after the Dictatorship. Like the innovative recent work on colonialism, these articles further the argument that colonization was neither monolithic nor wholly determined by the colonizer, who was as much product as producer.

Indeed, colonialism was a process not an event, made of many encounters and not just one discrete encounter. Gender is not peripheral but rather central to the processes of colonization and to the tensions of empire. And yet, it is not a stand-alone category.

Gender is imbricated with, and garners meaning in relation to, the axes of race, class, generation, nation, location, and sexuality. At the same time, a gendered analysis may also consider gender at the level of representation, such that gendered language and gendered images represent and produce relations of power and not necessarily, or not only, specific relations between men and women or men and men, women and women , although such relations are almost always implicated.

Pazos-Alonso shows how Amarilis gently but powerfully indicts the romance of lusotropicalism with the eye-opening revelations regarding race and gendered markers of difference. Her suggestion serves as an apt opening for the rest of the articles in this section. In different ways, Pabiou-Duchamp, Havik and Martins show the production of those categories to be fragile, contingent, and profoundly gendered.

By going beyond titles interpreted through narrow, masculinist, European-based notions of royal power to explore the gendered representational politics of the Karanga royalty, Pabiou-Duchamp also highlights the centrality of women to the functioning of the political system. Havik both shows how those tropes changed over time from images of ideal ethnic and racial types of African women to women as mothers within in a larger bio-medical discourse of empire and had, at least initially, different models: European ones for men and African ones for women.

Gendered practices help traverse ethnic, spiritual and racial difference not to mention dis location. Re-membering in the work of Felinto and Paulino, Harrison asserts, uses memory to reconnect and mobilize the past for work in the present. While colonialism may seem most remote in this piece, it is precisely here where we see that it is a process that marks the present, and this is worth remembering as we move into the next section.

Each locale, though geographically distant from the others, includes people who forcefully define themselves.

The twilight world of the Lusosexual: exploring sexuality in Portuguese-language literatures

At times the variety of situations, from rural women in Angola undergoing initiation rites to urban men in East Timor who are wrestling with their relationship to the violence around them, might obscure the connections between these studies, yet they all are cognizant of their relationship to Portugal and the Lusophone community. The physical imperfection that is associated with uncircumcised Handa is related to deficiencies in society, as that person is seen as a source of filth and as a troublemaker.

Gender identity is also related to the physical body, whether it is changed through the course of the initiation rites, or as other articles describe, through pregnancy, political activism, or violence. Durand demonstrates that these young people made a decision to become pregnant, and that it was not a random or accidental event as has often been depicted.

Hamilton, Phyllis Peres, and Ronald W. Sousa make up the section's roster. The shared thrust is well exemplified by Ana Paula Ferreira's "Loving in the Lands of Portugal: Sex in Women's Fictions and the Nationalist Order," an exploration of women writers of the 's and early 's who "wrote back" against the roles as mothers and, by extension, as agents responsible for "nationalist moral regeneration" in which women were cast by the dictatorial government , Part III, "Brazilian Performativities," looks at the "performative aspects of identity," a component Author: Kate Walker.
