Photography in Portuguese Colonial Africa, 1860–1975: novo livro de Filipa Vicente e Afonso Ramos

Photography in Portuguese Colonial Africa, 1860–1975, organizado por Filipa Lowndes Vicente (ICS-ULisboa) e Afonso Dias Ramos (NOVA FCSH), foi recentemente publicado pela editora Palgrave Macmillan, Cambridge Imperial and Post-Colonial Studies Serie.

This edited collection presents the first critical and historical overview of photography in Portuguese colonial Africa to an English-speaking audience. Photography in Portuguese Colonial Africa, 1860–1975 brings together sixteen scholars from interdisciplinary fields as varied as history, anthropology, art history, visual culture and museum studies, to consider some of the key aspects in the visual representation of the longest-lasting European colonial empire in the African continent. The chapters span over two centuries and cover five formerly colonial territories – Angola, Cabo Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, and São Tomé and Príncipe – deploying a range of methodologies to explore the multiple meanings and the contested uses of the photographic image across the realms of politics, science, culture and war. This book responds to a marked surge of international interest in the relationship between photography and colonialism, which has hitherto largely overlooked the Portuguese imperial context, by delivering the most recent scholarly findings to a broad readership.
