Africanizing Europe: Cape Verdean Perspectives on Race, Class, Gender and Identity in a Globalizing Portugal

In summer '06, I will inaugurate a humanistically oriented fieldwork project on the Cape Verdean diaspora. During this initial phase of a long-term project, I will focus on how Cape Verdeans in Lisbon experience their transplanted/transcultural existence. Paying attention to generation within both family and community, and privileging the voices of individuals to give texture to their experiences, I will explore how race, class and gender shape the situated identity of Cape Verdean adults, youths and children in the Portuguese diaspora. In later phases of this project, I will focus on specific issues that may arise from this initial phase, and I will expand the project to Cape Verdeans living elsewhere in Europe and New England.
