Portuguese Literary & Cultural Studies 34: The Open Veins of the Postcolonial: Afrodescendants and Racisms
Guest Editors: Inocência Mata & Iolanda Évora

The title of this issue—The Open Veins of the Postcolonial: Afrodescendants and Racisms—makes obvious reference to Eduardo Galeano’s Open Veins of Latin America, published more than 40 years ago. Although this paraphrase may seem inappropriate, given the fact that the author has “disavowed” the book, the same cannot be said of the veins of the postcolonial, whose colonial heritages have prolonged and reproduced themselves over the course of decades since the fall of the most recent colonial empires.
