  • Decolonizzazione e decolonizzazioni: una ricostruzione storica

    • Authors: Lucio Valent
      Pages: 3 - 16
      Abstract: This paper analyses Decolonization from an international relations point of view, trying to dispel all the superfluous ideological elements which have blurred the study of events that had presided at the birth of tens of new states and caused their inability in stabilizing themselves as international actors. A first step will be a general overview of the facts. Secondly, readers will be invited to follow an in-depth reflection through the different phases of Decolonization; because of this analysis, readers will evaluate how the  paper will criticize scientific patters which have been used by historiography in an improper way for explain all events characterising the facts. The last part of the paper will take into account Portuguese decolonization, including it into the general Cold War background, placing Lisbon’s role into the wider international relations system and Western organisations (as NATO). Thanks to this analysis, readers will consider the lengthy and tragic Portuguese decolonization as an affair completely encompassed into a confrontation embracing local requests (the independence aspirations), geopolitical strategies (the bi-polar confrontation) and ideological motives. A dreadful combination which caused tragic consequences for African speaking-Portuguese countries.

  • La decolonizzazione viene dall’Africa

    • Authors: Claudia Gualtieri
      Pages: 17 - 28
      Abstract: Il tema della decolonizzazione è provocatorio e stimolante per chi frequenta problematiche di teoria postcoloniale. Infatti le voci postcoloniali di scrittori, storici, teorici e artisti hanno messo in discussione sia la colonizzazione sia la decolonizzazione in modo nettamente dissenziente rispetto al discorso storiografico egemonico, cioè, in inglese, la imperial master narrative, la narrazione ufficiale della storia dell’impero. Nel 1992, con il volume In Theory. Classes, Nations and Literatures, Aijaz Ahmad si univa ai maggiori teorici postcoloniali Edward Said, Gayatri Spivak e Homi Bhabha, ponendo le basi dell’analisi critica delle letterature postcoloniali e smantellando polemicamente le ortodossie canoniche coloniali che avevano offerto una rappresentazione illusoria e falsata delle società e delle culture postcoloniali.

  • La lunga decolonizzazione delle città africane

    • Authors: Valerio Bini
      Pages: 29 - 42
      Abstract: The political project of decolonization was based on a "total, complete, and absolute substitution" (Fanon) of a system with another, but in the urban geography of Sub-Saharan Africa this process has been long, complex and not without ambiguity. On one hand, we observe a radical discontinuity in place names, in the administrative structure and in the monumental landscape of African cities; on the other, postcolonial urban planning and architecture showed strong continuity with the colonial functionalist model. In recent African urban projects as well, we observe the action of a colonial rationality, based on the removal of existing territories and on the production of standardized and fragmented urban spaces.

  • Os fins do tempo do fim: descolonização, negação,

    • Authors: Roberto Vecchi
      Pages: 43 - 51
      Abstract: Very few topics mobilize both the "Portuguese thought" -just to use a porous category of difficult definition- and the Portuguese decolonization in the mid-70s, after the Carnation Revolution. Multiple imaginations were elaborated from this event that fractured an expansion and a secular colonial theory. However, as Eduardo Lourenço fully shows (Do colonialismo como nosso impensado, 2014) the dereliction of the Atlantic history produces a multitude of ontological and symbolic specters and critical problems for the country called to articulate a new inscription outside of the Atlantic-Europe dialectics, exclusively turned to the European mythologies and destiny. The article deals especially with the conceptual plan of the Portuguese decolonization, in particular deepening the topic in terms of conceptual history, connected to two involved categories: negation and belonging. A reflection on the temporal tangle of decolonization in particular valorizes the messianic aspect of a "time of the end" leading to a reconsideration of the connection to an event that for some actors of the processes meant a "end of the time".

  • I tempi della fine. Il processo di decolonizzazione in Portogallo e i
           percorsi dell’Europa

    • Authors: Margarida Calafate Ribeiro
      Pages: 52 - 65
      Abstract: Between 1961 and 1974 Portugal sustained a long-term colonial war, that was not public acknowledge, with Angola, Mozambique and Guinea-Bissau. After this conflict, a sudden process of decolonization occurred, following the revolution of 25th of April 1974, which ended the long-term dictatorship of the fascist regime and also the colonial war. This essay focuses on the reasons of this process of decolonization, its frames and reconfigurations and its impact in the Portuguese identity. The second part of this essay focuses on Portugal as a postcolonial European nation in direct confrontation and dialogue with other countries in the European Community that share a similar past, which affect Europe as a continent haunted by its colonial issues.

  • Decolonizzare le menti: Amílcar Cabral e la resistenza culturale come

      Abstract: Sono ormai trascorsi poco più di quarant’anni dalla prematura scomparsa di Amílcar Cabral, leader indiscusso e indimenticato del Partido Africano da Independência da Guiné e Cabo Verde (PAIGC) che, grazie al suo contributo di agronomo, guerrigliero e uomo di pensiero, mise in ginocchio il Portogallo e il suo “impero degli stracci” (Moravia 2012), portando i popoli della Guinea Bissau e di Capo Verde verso la liberazione nazionale e l’indipendenza, e arricchendo di nuovi significati le nozioni di nazionalismo rivoluzionario e di umanesimo rivoluzionario.

  • Moçambique Para Todos (?) Mozambique and Political Violence The Opinions
           of the Opposition Youth

    • Authors: Michele Portatadino
      Pages: 78 - 98
      Abstract: This paper draws inspiration from a case of political violence in Mozambique to present the results of a six-month fieldwork research in the Mozambican capital city Maputo. The research targets were the members of the youth leagues affiliated to the two main opposition parties, Renamo and MDM. Specifically, the author investigated the motivations of these youths to participate in the political opposition despite the peril of political violence. Following an essential résumé of the histories of the assessed youth leagues, the author provides the drivers behind his decision to analyze such topics. Through the different types of violence as defined by Johan Galtung, the author argues that the present case study might be a degeneration of cultural political violence, embedded in the history of Mozambique since the years of its independence. In the present day, such violence has been threatening more and more directly an already fragile democracy. Moreover, since the present case study revolves around opinions of youths, the assessed theoretical framework includes studies violence in general and a particularly intriguing assessment of the present condition of youths in Mozambique and, even more specifically, in its capital city, Maputo. Successively, the author summarizes the emerging of structural political violence in post-independence Mozambique. As it concerns the main corpus of the research, the author used a qualitative methodology that combines a historical and ethnographic approach. The findings reveal that the interviewed members of the considered youth leagues have an idea of political violence, which goes beyond the mere politics. Further, they demonstrated a quite straightforward consideration on the reasons why a lingering political violence is still present in Mozambique. Further, the interviewees also expressed their own point of view on the consequences of such political violence on themselves and on Mozambican youth in general. Although the findings also aimed to surface any possible discrepancies between the answers of male and female interviewees, they all unilaterally blamed the ruling Frelimo party for the ongoing tension with few differences in their answers.

  • Entre noésis et praxis: le renouveau de la prise de parole poétique en
           RDC au début du nouveau millénaire

    • Authors: Silvia Riva
      Pages: 99 - 119
      Abstract: Flourishing quantitatively and qualitatively in the early 60s, the poetic production of the DRC experienced a crisis until the end of the Mobutu era. In the fiftieth anniversary of independence, poetry seems to refresh around the themes of homeland and its reconstruction. The reflections proposed in these pages are not limited to the presentation of some Congolese intellectuals and their works - poets, filmmakers and musicians who live in the country or elsewhere, speaking in French, but also in some local or world languages. The intention is rather to show how Congolese poetry in the recent years invites to a mental decolonization and an anti-systemic utopian project.

  • Sidelong thinking. Disobedient geographies and subaltern cultures

    • Authors: Nicoletta Vallorani
      Pages: 120 - 133
      Abstract: My work here develops along a twofold path. On the one hand, and as a researcher committed to postcolonial issues, I share what many theorists say about the need for a more or less stable framework allowing to approach the issue of empire and post-empire in the light of some relatively stable critical categories. On the other, I also feel the gap between theories and some increasingly complex realities that do need a more direct appraisal of the facts implied in a globalized world in the way this need is voiced by Simon Gikandi in his “Globalization and the Claims of Postcoloniality” (2001). To the purpose of imagining a more effective critical frame, I’m borrowing Kara Walker’s notion of sidelong glance to develop a reflection on theories and their usefulness in terms of the actual approach to issues whose profile and complexity are to be intended as not only in progress, but also undergoing a very quick definition and redefinition through time. Starting from Hall’s statement that  the postcolonial may be intended as “sign of desire or  signifier of danger” (1996) and also exploiting the notions of rhizoma (Deleuze & Guattari 1980), subalternity (Spivak 1988) and “Thinking plural” (Said 1993), I’m approaching a number of written, visual and performative texts, from Conrad’s Heart of Darkness to tightly contemporary artistic experiences, to show how both the postcolonial and the decolonial paradigms eventually prove inadequate to the reading of our present condition in terms of the ability to go beyond the traditional Western attitude to the post-colonies.

  • Una decolonizzazione mai terminata. Il modello portoghese di
           colonizzazione in Brasile e la costruzione dell’Altro/a africano/a
           nell’immaginario razzista

    • Authors: Valeria Ribeiro Corossacz
      Pages: 134 - 147
      Abstract: In this paper I analyse how the narrative discourse about the presumed specific characteristics of Portuguese colonization in Brazil moulded racism in Brazil and Portugal. Recently in Portugal there have been episodes of police violence against black people. These episodes have to be considered not only as the product of contemporary racism and its links with neoliberalism effects on marginalized groups, but also as the product of racist and colonial Portuguese ideology. In the case of Brazil, Portuguese colonization is a key element to comprehend the national ideology of mestiçagem, and the false idea of inclusion of African descendants in Brazilian culture that it conveys. The restrictive valorisation (Guillaumin, 1972) of black and indigenous people presents in Brazilian racist ideology is in effect rooted in the Portuguese model of colonization which has been represented as more “human” since the slavery time. Portuguese men are been described as particularly open to mingle with colonized people, especially women, of other cultures and “races”. The notion of lusotropicalism, with its celebrating spirit, has contributed to establish this representation and it has legitimized Portuguese colonization and exploitation also in Africa. These harmful representations of Portuguese colonization and lusotropicalism ideology have thus produced the double effect of negating racism in both Brazil and Portugal.

  • Ch’ixi, Qhipnayra, Nkali: modi di dire l’emergenza decoloniale

    • Authors: Marianna Scaramucci
      Pages: 148 - 160
      Abstract: This work stems from the notions of pensamento abissal, monocultura and ecologia de saberes (Sousa Santos: 2009) and applies them to the problem of the persistence of a form of coloniality surviving the age of political decolonization in the sphere of knowledge validation. The study analyses some reflections of the Bolivian Aymara sociologist Silvia Rivera Cusicanqui on the vocabulary of the Aymara language, spoken in Bolivia, who takes into account the native language universe and its expressive possibilities to pave the way for an epistemological decolonization. By analysing the proposal of the Bolivian sociologist and by relating it to other concepts, such as the one suggested by Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie – who considers the Igbo language to formulate the idea of danger of a single story –, this study aims at presenting some ‘words that say’ that decolonization is not over and that decoloniality is still an emergency.

  • Plunging into the wave’s ebb: Sufi words, biographies of humanity

    • Authors: Elena Biagi
      Pages: 161 - 176
      Abstract: Inherent in the meaning which the word ‘identity’ bears in Arabic (huwiyya) is a perception of the human self as an ideal place for both stability and change, both sense of belonging and openness to diversity. Such a dichotomy represents a potentially unique source of intercultural dialogue, when it contributes to shaping ‘identities in motion’, stirred by an unyielding desire for self realization and knowledge. Nevertheless, individual and communal selves develop within the framework of distinctive cultures, moulding their path to identity into collectively shared discourses and representations. In this perspective, the paper aims at highlighting the connection between classical Sufism, generally interpreted as Islamic mysticism, and the concept of identity, looking at how the latter relates to the Islamic spiritual tradition as handed down in the works of some representative medieval Sufis. Furthermore, by dealing with issues ranging from the use of language to themes of love and knowledge, this work intends to emphasize the role of the spiritual dimension as the base for those universal values which are at the core of multicultural societies, and to illustrate how the process of acquiring personal inward awareness can improve intrapersonal relationships while spurring an active participation in social life.

      Era delgado, bien parecido y tenía una mirada inteligente. Trabajó unas semanas en el Mamá África, servía copas, limpiaba mesas, luego desapareció.
