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.
