Abstract

This project for the Research Internship Abroad Program will be executed at the Center for African Studies at Eduardo Mondlane University, in Maputo, Mozambique, under the supervision of Professor Teresa Cruz e Silva. The proposal is connected to the research I have been developing in Brazil, "The photography of Ricardo Rangel: experience, memory, and colonialism in Mozambique", funded by FAPESP (2014/25152-0), and conducted in the Department of Anthropology at the Universidade de São Paulo. In my Ph.D. research I have been analyzing the trajectory of Ricardo Rangel and of his photographic work, in order to verify how both address the memories and the social history of colonialism in Mozambique, especially from 1950 to 1975. The internship abroad is a unique opportunity to develop methodological and empirical aspects of research, especially in relation to three main points: a) mapping the importance of Rangel in the panorama of Mozambican photography; b) analysis of primary sources in the archives where his collection can be found; c) examination of the most current uses and meanings of his work within the memory of the country, by reflecting questions of social history, archive, remembrance and intellectual trajectory. In this sense, the internship abroad will be an unique occasion to combine the survey of primary sources, and furthering my theoretical and methodological knowledge, based on bibliographical and empirical research, as well as interviews, and also exchanges with other researchers.
