The Past Tense of Our Selves


A Portuguese Farewell (Um Adeus Português, 1986).

The new issue of the Journal of Lusophone Studies is out. It includes a special dossier on Portuguese cinema edited by Clara Rowland (Nova University of Lisbon) and Estela Vieira (Indiana University, Bloomington). My contribution to it is called “The Past Tense of Our Selves: Um Adeus Português in 1980s Portugal” and it is published alongside essays by Carolin Overhoff Ferreira (Federal University of Sao Paulo), António Preto (School of Arts of Porto), Tiago Baptista (Nova), Maria Irene Aparício (Nova), Clara Rowland, Patrícia Vieira (Georgetown University), Filipa Rosário (University of Lisbon), Fernando Arenas (University of Michigan), and Estela Vieira.
