Lusofonia and Its Futures

Lusofonia and Its Futures is a richly textured collection of essays on the Lusophone (Portuguese-speaking) world, which comprises more than 240 million people in eight countries on four continents. The notion of Lusofonia encompasses the cultural identities generated by Portuguese speakers with shared as well as divergent histories. This volume presents a nuanced and critical study of the concept and history of Lusofonia from a variety of theoretical approaches. In addition to focusing on this theme, Lusofonia and Its Futures includes fiction in translation by writers from several countries in the Lusophone world as well as scholarly essays on such topics as the reception of the English novel in Brazilian literature and of Fernando Pessoa in Brazil.
