"African Perceptions of the Black Diaspora"
It is not surprising that the diaspora, in its representations of the origin seeks to establish and maintain the links with the dreamed motherland for everything leads to think that the place left, voluntarily or because of political, historical and even natural contingencies, do not leave the diasporic subject. Confronted with an in-between situation, his creative work articulates different identities, opposing cultures and a vague memory of the origin. But how does this origin think and represent its diaspora? This is the central question of this anthology, essentially dedicated to Africa.

Goa, and the rest of the erstwhile Portuguese Estado da Índia, was the first part of the modern Portuguese empire in Asia to be decoupled from the Portuguese state (East Timor would follow in 1975 and Macao in 1999). The integration of Goa into the Indian Republic, following its annexation by the latter in 1961, has resulted in a certain opacity in terms of understanding Goa, and by extension Portuguese colonialism in Asia. This is the result of a variety of reasons. To begin with, the specific history of the Portuguese territory has been written in terms of British India.

Clio: A Journal of Literature, History, and the Philosophy of History, a double-blind peer-reviewed international interdisciplinary journal, publishes scholarly essays that explore the connections between history, literature, and the arts. Humans understand themselves and their cultures, even create themselves and their cultures, through stories. Sometimes we call those stories “history,” and sometimes we call them “literature.” Clio is interested in the interconnectedness of these two disciplines, as well as the philosophical work that supports these kinds of inquiries.
