Situated Critical Theory:Postcolonial and Feminist Dialogues in a Comparative
Study of Indo-English and Lusophone Women Writers, by Joana Filipa da Silva de
Melo Vilela Passos (Portuguese). PhD dissertation.
This dissertation studies six texts written by women (three Indo-English novels, a novel and an anthology of short stories from Cape Verde and a novel from Mozambique). The three Lusophone texts (literature written in Portuguese, though it is not Portuguese literature) are compared to the Indo-English texts in order to assess different evolutions in the sense of national identity in these postcolonial contexts...on female authors from English speaking countries, Cape Verde (Dina Salústio, Orlanda Amarilis) and Mozambique.
