This project aims to rewrite the history of literature in Portuguese from Goa, a former Portuguese colony in India. It privileges, on the one hand, the relation of this body of writing with its host society's cultural, intellectual and artistic dynamics and, on the other hand, the connections that can be established today between this literature and its context and other related literatures and contexts. Although some important works have already provided an outline of Goan literary history, the full scope of the territory's literary production is still to be established and sustained analysis of the works that constitute this body of writing has not yet been made, especially with regards the conditions obtaining in this former colony. In addition, very few comparative works connecting Goan literature, history and cultural contexts to other literatures from different cultural and intellectual contexts exist. In practical terms, this project intends: 1) to catalogue and reproduce (whenever possible) Goa's literary and journalistic production in Portuguese, as well as to complete the inventory of Goa's artistic heritage of Indo-Portuguese origin; 2) write a history of Goan literature in Portuguese that interprets these works in relation to the everyday intellectual life of Goa. Furthermore, this project shall also explore the several layers of meaning which this literary and cultural production can acquire if compared with other literatures and other cultures, in particular those where Portuguese is the official language; 3) foster academic exchange between India and Brazil in the fields of language and literature, and in particular, between Goa University and the Universidade de São Paulo.
