Andrew João Carvalho Nunes.
BA, MRes, PhD.
Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies.
Drawing on perspectives and theories from cultural studies, memory studies and postcolonial studies, I mainly focus on Portuguese societal issues and trends. At times this may include these issues within Brazil and in the rest of the Portuguese-speaking world. In this ‘Lusophone’ context, research interests include: the ideological legacies of the Portuguese Estado Novo; social and cultural memory and difficult heritage (namely, sites of imperial and colonial memory – toponyms, statues, monuments and museums provocative of histories of Portuguese imperialism and colonialism); postcolonialism (the social and cultural legacies of Portuguese colonialism); and anti-racist activism in Portugal.
