The "encounters" (CERTEAU, 1990) and cultural exchanges in "global" scale (BROTTON & JARDINE, 2000; BROTTON, 2009; GOODY, 2010) resulting in hybrid cultural landscapes, product of wide circulation of people, artifacts, ideas, forms, have increasingly inspired more questions. On the opposite way of a eurocentric history, and based on recent concepts of "Cultural Landscape", "Cultural Encounters" e "Global History", this research project aims to read and deconstruct, on the "roughness" of space (SANTOS, 1994), interection processes among different human productions and the nature in a long-term perspective (BRAUDEL, 1979a, 1979b).Starting from an interdisciplinary perspective, the project intends to discuss both the nature of the Lusitanian cultural landscape in the State of India and its interfaces with other areas of Iberian colonialism, against the background of the testimonies produced since the 16th century - chroniclers, traveling naturalists, cartographers etc. - even the current media - audiovisual, printed, specialized literature, etc. The case of Portuguese India elected for appreciation aims to demystify stereotypes about Iberian colonialism, revealing mixed landscapes resulting from the crossing of worlds and alchemy of mestizos, in the perspective of a less Eurocentric Global History and an off-center cultural history.
