My main research interests lie in the area of migrant, colonial and postcolonial literary discourses. Within this broad framework, I have a particular interest in themes related to the diasporic condition, such as the expression of exile, ethnicity and hybridity in the literatures of the Portuguese-speaking world, and from a comparative perspective, in other postcolonial literatures. I have published on Brazilian and Lusophone African literatures and more recently on perceptions of China in Portuguese literature. I also have an interest in literary translation, and am co-editor of a new series of translations from the Portuguese, to be published jointly by HiPLA and the National University of Ireland, Maynooth from 2006.
