Lusophone Studies and Communication Sciences

Moisés de Lemos Martins, Alda Costa & Isabel Macedo

vol. 34 - 2018 | CECS-UMinho

ISSN:1645-2089 (print) | 2183-3575 (online)

“In the current context of globalization, which is a reality commanded by information technologies and whose nature is eminently economical and financial, the studies on Lusophony calls for, at least, three complementary research directions. If we hold to a post-colonial viewpoint, we can, on the one hand, question Portuguese-speaking narratives as a construction, in several voices, of a transnational and transcontinental geocultural community. We can also interrogate the policies of language and communication as a symbolic struggle for asserting a plural community, in the diversity of Portuguese-speaking peoples. And we can also question the complexity of the movement of interpenetration of cultures. With various gradations, such a movement comprises colonialism, neocolonialism and post-colonialism, in the relationship between peoples, while translating, in like manner, encounter, assimilation and domination, in interaction among ourselves and with others”.
