Andrew João Carvalho Nunes (b. 1986) is a PhD candidate in the Department of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies at King’s College London.

Engaging with various critical perspectives and theories from a variety of different fields of study, I mainly focus on Portuguese societal issues and trends. At times this can include issues relating to Brazil and the rest of the Portuguese-speaking world. In this ‘Lusophone’ context, interests include history and politics in shaping culture (material and non-material); postcolonialism (the cultural legacies of Portuguese colonialism); social and cultural memory; and sites of imperial-colonial memory (toponyms, statues, monuments, museums and more about empire), specifically the evocation of history and histories that they produce as public narratives, and the counter-narratives (interventions by actors) that they may elicit.
