Currently I have several research projects: (1) “Between Migration and Citizenship: Cultural Imaginings at the Borderlines of Portugal, Brazil and Lusophone Africa” (lectures and journal articles); (2) Revision, expansion, and copy editing of Portuguese translation of Lusophone Africa: Beyond Independence to be published in Brazil, Portugal, Angola, and Mozambique. (3) Lusophone trans-Atlantic cultural studies (Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, and Portugal) (conference papers and journal articles).
