Digital Translation and Portuguese/English Edition of the Correio de Africa [Africa Mail] Newspaper, 1921-1924

Translation and preparation for publication of an open access bilingual edition of Correio de Africa [The Africa Mail], a newspaper published in Portugal from 1921-1924. (36 months)

This project provides access to primary materials through an open access digital bilingual edition of the Correio de Africa, a newspaper published in Lisbon between 1921-1924, supplemented by a full scholarly apparatus. It will make several contributions to humanities scholarship: 1. its comparative and multilingual approach has potential to generate new perspectives on colonialism, imperialism, literary and cultural history, politics, labor, migration, race and racism, linguistics, journalism, photography, advertising, women's activism, and transnationalism; 2. in light of the paper's extensive treatment of these topics, it provides a fuller view of the extent and quality of activism on the part of Africans and people of African descent in Portugal, Africa, and African Diaspora; 3. it offers an important corrective to accounts that date Pan-Africanism in Africa to the post-World War II period or that neglect its relationship to Europe and Asia; 4. it extends recent work on Black Europe.
