This Research Internship Abroad (BEPE) project, linked to the Scientific Initiation Grant funded by FAPESP (process nr. 2017/23444-2), focuses on the collection and analysis of the designators of oneself and others present in the speeches given by the political leaders of the Angolan liberation movements, MPLA (Agostinho Neto and José Eduardo dos Santos) and UNITA (Jonas Savimbi). Both the discourses and the categories they convey will be analyzed via the methodological proposal of Anne McClintock (2010). According to this methodology, the historical constitution of the categories and the intersectionalities produced in the relations between them are fundamental for understanding the continuities and discontinuities between the discourses and in relation to the colonial period. For this analytical proposal, during the four months in Portugal, the objective is (1) to get in touch with the consolidated field of study on Lusophone Africa through my filiation with the Center for African Studies of the University of Lisbon; (2) to collect materials on the speeches and trajectories of the three political leaders, as well as on the emergence and formation of the movements in which they participated, since Portugal offers the possibility of access to a literature and to primary sources that are difficult to access in Brazil and relevant for the development of the project; (3) to increase my knowledge of the current debates about Africa, especially Angola, giving greater attention to those dealing with the Portuguese-speaking colonial context and the struggles for independence. This research internship will be supervised by Dr. Alice Trindade, a professor at the University of Lisbon and a member of the African Studies Center (CEAF) at the university's Institute of Social and Political Sciences. She specializes in literary journalism as well as territoriality and identity in Angola. (AU)
