Forgotten Histories: 2020 Publications
On 11 February, Canning House welcomed the authors of our Forgotten Histories published in 2020 to speak more on their research about the lesser-known links between the UK and Latin America.
- Canning House
Brazil, Portugal, and the six countries of Lusophone Africa - Angola, Mozambique, Guinea-Bissau, Equatorial Guinea, Cabo Verde and São Tomé and Príncipe - share a common language. This link - the product of a complex transatlantic history - is celebrated on 5 May each year during the International Day of Portuguese Language and Culture.
To mark the day in 2021, Canning House examined present-day cooperative ties across the Lusophone world in healthcare, education and sustainable development - where they exist, what they have achieved, and how they could go further. To discuss, we welcomed a panel of experts on the Lusophone world's past, present and future.
