Late Colonial Estrangement And Miscegenation: Identity And Authenticity in the Colonial Imagination In The Dutch And Lusophone (Post) Colonial Worlds

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.


This paper attempts to reassess the work of two contemporary writers in the 1930s: Gilberto Freyre in Brazil and E. du Perron in the Netherlands Indies (Indonesia). Their famous narratives (respectively, Casa-Grande e Senzala and Het Land van Herkomst) present a (post) colonial world where inequality, violence and racism are almost as conspicuous as mixing and contact across the colour lines. In fact, although one work is a sociological and historical interpretation of colonial and imperial Brazil and the other a literary reworking of personal reminiscences related to Indies society in the early twentieth century, both construct worlds that present several important similarities.
