This chapter explores the possible links between postcolonial studies and the cultures of Latin America and Lusophone Africa. The essay of J. Jorge Klor de Alva is dealt to formulate both the temporal and geopolitical dimension, and the critical dimension of postcoloniality. These dimensions are described by Peter Hulme and Walter Mignolo in ‘Including America’ and ‘La razón postcolonial: herencias coloniales y teorías postcoloniales’, respectively. This chapter reveals that the associations with Latin America situate Lusophone Africa within an even wider network of political and cultural relations. An overview of the chapters included in this book is presented.

Keywords:   Latin America, Lusophone Africa, postcolonial studies, cultures, J. Jorge Klor de Alva, Peter Hulme, Walter Mignolo, Including America, La razón postcolonial
