Millar Publishes Translation of Angolan Poet

 Lanie Millar, Assistant Professor of Spanish and Portuguese, has published a Spanish translation of the poem “Monangamba” by Angolan poet António Jacinto. The translation appears in the journal CAL: Revista de poesía (Huelva, Spain) in a special issue on Portuguese-language poetry, co-edited by former RL graduate student Rafael Núñez Rodríguez. António Jacinto (1924-1991) was one of Angola’s most important poets of the independence generation. He co-founded the Angolan Writers’ Union in 1975, and served as Minister of Culture from 1975-1978. He was awarded Angola’s National Prize for Literature in 1987.

Millar awarded fellowship at National Library of Portugal

Assistant Professor of Spanish Lanie Millar was awarded a month-long research fellowship at the National Library of Portugal in summer 2016.
Millar will be working in the government archives from the Salazar/ Estado Novo dictatorship (1933-1974), to examine how the Portuguese government was tracking international leftist networks that involved intellectuals from the Portuguese African colonies in the mid-twentieth century. This research will help Millar illuminate how contemporary Angolan literature responds to ideas developed in Portugal about the colonies and their subjects.
