Associated scholarship(s):13/04782-3 - The Luso-African-Brazilian relations during the project of "regeneration" of the Nineteenth Portuguese State, BE.EP.DR


This project have to porpose to analyze the political realtions between the two great centers of export and import of African slaves respectively in the first half of Nineteenth century: the Portuguese colony of Angola, in Africa, and the newly independent Empire of Brazil, in America. Therefore, it was chosen as chronological cut the period of the appointment, in late 1826, of Rui Germak Possolo as head of the Brazilian consulate in Luanda - whose operation does not exceed more than one year - and the establishment of more direct and lasting relationships between Brazil and Angola from the appointment of Jose Ignacio Nogueira da Gama for the post in question in the final years of the 1850s. It is therefore a project formulated based on a perspective of building of one Atlantic History, specifically of a South-Atlantic History. It is expected here the adoption of concepts, sources, methods and issues already recognized by the analytical perspective called by "via Atlantic" which presupposes the development of guided discussions in the valuation of contexts, connections and interactions of specific historical phenomena occurring between States and/or regions bordered by the Atlantic among the breaking dawn of the Seventeenth century and the twilight of the Nineteenth century.
