Luso Brazilian Encounters Of The Sixteenth Century Book Description

by Alessandro Zir, Luso Brazilian Encounters Of The Sixteenth Century Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Luso Brazilian Encounters Of The Sixteenth Century books, As it happens with other early-Modern corpora, the descriptive texts from 16th-century encounters of the Portuguese colonizers in Brazil are well-known for their strangeness. In them we find references to entities like monsters and demons, bizarre descriptions, and odd classification systems of plants and animals. For the most part, these elements are dismissed as mere eccentricities by modern scholars studying these texts. Instead, this book takes these elements seriously. They are focused on and tackled with a theoretical tool—styles of thinking—not yet used in Luso-Brazilian studies, and coming from another field of inquiry: philosophy and history of science. By doing so the book aims to unveil epistemological and ontological issues in which colonial and post-colonial studies are entangled, and which have a relevance that goes beyond debates concerning, for instance, the formation of Brazil's cultural identity.

Sodomy And Sodomites In Luso Brazilian History Book Description

by Harold Benjamin Johnson, Sodomy And Sodomites In Luso Brazilian History Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Sodomy And Sodomites In Luso Brazilian History books, This volume of collected articles is the first to focus exclusively on the history of homosexuality in the Portuguese-speaking world. Of the thirteen studies included, nine make available for the first time in English the work of eminent Luso-Brazilian historians, including no less than three by the preeminent researcher in the field, Professor Luiz Mott of the Federal University of Bahia. Two others analyze in detail the first novels, The Baron of Lavos in Portugal and Bom-Crioulo in Brazil--both written in the 1890s--that portray a homosexual relationship in a frankly realistic way. The collection should serve as essential reading for courses in Portuguese and Brazilian social history.

Studies On Portuguese Asia 1495 1689 Book Description

by George Davison Winius, Studies On Portuguese Asia 1495 1689 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Studies On Portuguese Asia 1495 1689 books, Portuguese Asia, otherwise known as the Estado da à ndia Oriental, has been far less studied than the Spanish empire in America, its counterpart in the Western hemisphere. It differed from that vast entity in that it was essentially a maritime trading operation held together by strategic territories, such as Goa, Ceylon, or Macau. For more than a century these afforded it control of much of the Indian Ocean. As Professor Winius shows, it was certainly the most peculiar and colourful operation that existed in the history of European expansion, even giving rise to a second, 'shadow' empire created by escapees and renegades from its royal administration. Some of these essays reflect on Portuguese involvement in other areas, notably the Atlantic, and the impact this had in the East, but their focus is on the Portuguese in South and Southeast Asia. They describe its nature and its rise and fall, from the first voyage of Vasco da Gama to its dismemberment by the Dutch in the mid-seventeenth century, and include studies on the jewel trade and on the Renaissance in Goa.
