The session will be based on the book by João Pina-Cabral, “Transcolonial”, released in March 2023. Book presentation text:
“Are the Portuguese really fish-cannibals as the Mozambicans thought? After all, who eats who? What sense do these narratives about the circulation of bodily substances that are found all over the world where there were Portuguese? Arriving in Mozambique, after more than two decades of absence, I realized that I carried within myself signs that triggered in my hosts a feeling of transcolonial familiarity that was not always pleasant. In this book, I bring together a series of essays where I analyze the tortuous journeys of transcoloniality, that is, the spaces where empires and hegemonies intersect and where people and groups move within global capitalism.“
