(p.157) Chapter 9 On Being Portuguese
Creolizing Europe

José Carlos Pina Almeida

David Corkill

Liverpool University Press

José Carlos Almeida and David Corkill interrogate the implications of the European colonial project in tracing new cartographies and phenomena. Departing from reolization as a concept which refers to the interaction between African slaves, European settlers, Asian indentured workers and indigenous peoples and cultural creolization, understood as the intermingling and mixing of two or several formerly discrete traditions or cultures, they discuss the limits of this concept in the understanding of the impact of Portuguese colonialism. Critically discussing Gilberto Freyre’s work on Lusotropicalism, they contrast creolization with the politics of miscegenation within imperial and fascist expansionist projects.

Keywords:   Lusotropicalism, Creolization, Enslavement, Indenture, Miscegenation
