Description

For centuries, Goa was the administrative centre of a Portuguese empire that extended west to Africa, and east to Malaysia, China and Japan. This volume adds to our understanding of the arts, peoples, languages, and cultures that made Goa one of the first global entrepôts, a focal point and centre of diverse world cultures, situating it between cultures, and thus anticipating today’s global, multicultural and multilingual urban centres.

At a conference titled ‘Goa: A Post-Colonial Society Between Cultures’, planned by Dr. Kenneth David Jackson, and held at Yale University, international scholars and creative artists gathered to debate and discuss the position of contemporary Goa in light of its historically diverse cultural influences. This volume is an anthology of presentations made at the conference as well as a collection of essays by scholars whose research interests and fields of specialization embrace similar areas of interdisciplinary enquiry.
