The main focus of this issue is the development of comparative analyzes of literary texts and cultural objects produced from the 1960s in Portugal, Brazil and Portuguese-speaking African countries, with an emphasis on the contrastive identification of epistemological foundations determined by the Portuguese colonial experience and on the analysis of specific characteristics of such cultural field, materialized in historical experiences as well as common linguistic and literary principles. In this sense, it presupposes the cohabitation of knowledge considered superior and subalternized knowledge in the course of colonial modernity. In this issue, it is also intended to define a theoretical framework that includes literary, cultural and essayistic objects produced from different epistemic matrices and considered as: a) powerful retransmitter vehicles of the western hegemonic episteme; b) gestures of recognition of alterity and diversity, structuring of the concerned societies, and c) mapping of merge zones, transitions and epistemic hybrids. In these keys of reading, it becomes possible to revisit the modern literary tradition and its critique to reorganize them through theoretical operators and categories of analysis of the contemporary. National literary productions, taken as privileged instances in the establishment of the imaginary of the common, should be seen in processes of interaction, from appropriations, tensions and renegotiations that both affirm and deny belonging to this communitarian dimension.
