Abstract:This collective volume brings together research on the subject of nations and nationalisms in Portuguese-speaking Africa. It explores the history and politics of diverse nationalist discourses and ideologies, and it revisits the formation and contemporary developments of national imagined communities in Angola, Guinea-Bissau and Mozambique. It does so by drawing on several disciplines and by exploring themes ranging from Frelimo's liberation literature to UNITA's moral economy and the disaggregation of Guinea-Bissau. By looking at the nature and dynamics of 'marginal' nationalisms, the role of culture, the way nationalist movements fitted into international networks, or how particular nationalist movements failed, the authors aim to restore the uncertain, conflictual trajectories of nationalisms and nations before and after independence. The collection originates in a workshop held at the University of Oxford in December 2007. Contributors: Maria Benedita Basto, David Birmingham, Michel Cahen, Georgi Derluguian, Philip J. Havik, Eric Morier-Genoud, Justin Pearce, Didier Péclard, Fernando Tavares Pimenta, Jason Sumich, and Gavin Williams. [ASC Leiden abstract]
