Announcing the Publication of PLCS 36-37: Heritages of Portuguese Influence: Histories, Spaces, Texts, and Objects

We are pleased to announce that Portuguese Literary & Cultural Studies (PLCS) 36-37, “Heritages of Portuguese Influence: Histories, Spaces, Texts, and Objects,” is now available! You can find this issue as well as all back issues available for free on the journal’s website.

Cover of PLCS 36/37. Includes names of guest editors: Miguel Badeira Jeronimo, Anna M. Klobucka, and Walter Rossa.

Situated in the interdisciplinary field of Critical Heritage Studies, this special issue gathers articles originating in diverse areas of scholarship (and in many cases fostering productive cross-fertilizations among them) that deal with the multifaceted postcolonial and globalized heritages of the Portuguese empire and Lusophone diasporas. The contributors discuss “heritage” and “influence” critically, as cultural and political arguments and practices, and as historical manifestations entailing diverse perspectives, motivations, and consequences, formed in colonial and postcolonial situations, imagining the past, the present, and the future.

The Center for Portuguese Studies and Culture’s Tagus Press publishes its electronic version of PLCS on the library’s journal hosting platform.

Website Redesign Coming Soon

The Claire T. Carney Library is getting a new website!

Based on feedback from faculty and students, we have redesigned the library’s main website. The new website offers a contemporary look and feel alongside improved functionality, making it easier for you to find exactly what you need.

The site will go live later this month (August 2022), just in time for the start of the fall semester. Here is a sneak peek of the new design:
