Summary note
"This multilingual reader brings together literary and cultural critics from Africa, Europe, and the Americas to validate and re-evaluate the legitimacy of Afro-Brazilian studies and culture as a field of academic inquiry worthy of canonical inclusion. The thirty two multifaceted essays adopt an interdisciplinary approach in order to uncover the intellectual nature of Afro-Brazilian cultural production. Issues addressed include race relations, Afro-Atlantic Diaspora, gender, sexuality, identity formation, cultural diversity, performance, and popular culture."--Publisher's website.
