Colonialism as mitosis – the rise and fall of empires, rendered as cell division | Aeon Videos
Colonialism as mitosis – the rise and fall of empires, rendered as cell division During the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, Great Britain, France, Portugal and…
The duo illustrates the centuries-long process of decolonisation as a kind of mitosis, with newly independent nations splitting off from the colonial powers. According to Cruz, the soft, cellular bodies used for the visualisation are meant to convey the ‘volatility and dynamic nature’ of these empires over time.

Iberia’s children: A short history of why Portuguese and Spanish are different | Unravel Magazine
Once upon a time, Portuguese and Spanish were, basically, dialects of the same language: Latin, the language of the Roman Empire. Hundreds of years later, how have Portuguese and Spanish grown apart, and why? And will they always be different?

低调而灿烂的葡萄牙小吃
12月的欧洲大部分地区都已步入寒冬,只有伊比利亚半岛的阳光仍然肆意袭人。走在里斯本正午的海岸,望着波光粼粼的塔霍河和远处神似金门的大桥,不禁感叹南欧真是冬日旅行的不二之选。 这种感叹当然离不开美食的诱...

波尔图和大阪:忍辱负重的第二城市 - BBC 主页

整座城市都充斥着意想不到的美景。这里有横跨杜罗河的路易一世双层拱形大桥,还有堪称建筑奇迹的Casa da Música音乐厅(据说它看起来像一个巨大的节拍器),处处令人流连忘返。难怪年轻时的JK·罗琳(JK Rowling)在这里找到了创作哈利·波特(Harry Potter)的灵感。那是20世纪90年代初,当时还在当英语老师的罗琳经常光顾Livraria Lello书店。这里蜿蜒美丽的楼梯和12世纪的新哥特式建筑的确很容易让人想起霍格沃兹魔法学校。最近几年,这里已经成了哈利·波特迷的圣地,从早到晚都排着长长的队伍。

一位冰岛人曾经对我说,倘若你无法确定自己真正的故乡是哪里,那就问自己一个问题:"你想死在哪里?"

对于“废柴”巴西的想象和误解:与其互黑,不如共情_文化课_澎湃新闻-The Paper
葡萄牙是在荷兰与法国明确表达出对那块肥沃殖民地的觊觎之后,才真正开始了殖民巴西。他们派出了军队,赶跑了荷兰人,确认了对巴西的绝对统治。我有不少中国知识界的朋友,对于荷兰没有成功占领巴西一事耿耿于怀,觉得如果宗主国不是葡萄牙这个天主教废柴,而是荷兰这个发达的新教国家,那么以巴西的先天条件,何愁不混个第一世界国家当当?他们深深地为巴西遗憾、委屈,就像许子东老师一样。

在《巴西之根》中,他详细地对比了葡萄牙与荷兰人之间的差异。荷兰人打北方来,喜寒怕热,热爱秩序,到哪儿都要建个整洁干净的城市,给自己人住,特别不爱下乡,尤其不跟土著妇女乱搞。葡萄牙人从温暖的南欧来,对热带的气候比较适应,性格也不是那样龟毛,吊床上也能睡睡。葡萄牙本土等级制并不森严,再加上高门大户的都不来巴西,所以来巴西的这批人也没什么门户之见,跟土著妇女通婚也不是什么大事。这样,才能孕育出一个新的种族,成为了未来巴西的基础。

我也一点儿不觉得遗憾,因为如果荷兰真的占领了巴西,那么巴西今天就成了南非。现实如此打脸,我真不愿提醒那些善心人。

各种来源的文化要素,交融在一起,形成了多元共生的奇观。这当然是伟大的贡献,并不逊于希腊的光荣、罗马的成就、英伦的保守主义、法兰西的自由平等博爱,尤其是对于当下的世界。

Way, José | The Economist
BRAZILIANS delight in Portuguese words that seem to have no equivalent in other languages. Saudade is yearning for an absent person or a place left behind. Cafuné is the act of running one’s fingers through a lover’s hair. More newsworthy is jeitinho, a diminutive of jeito (“way”). It is a way around something, often a law or rule.

Some scholars think that Catholics, tempted to regard confession as an alternative to compliance, are especially prone to jeitinho-like behaviour. Others suggest that mestiço (mixed-race) societies like Brazil’s are liable to be flexible, about the law as much as ethnicity. Perhaps inequality plays a role: the rich and powerful flout the law, so why shouldn’t ordinary folk?

World Cup 2014: Portugal’s Team Stirs Ambivalence in Brazil - NYTimes.com
“In 1808, King John VI fled to Brazil when Napoleon invaded the Iberian Peninsula, and he and his son and grandson ruled there for many years,” DaMatta said. “This led to a different experience for the Brazilian-Portuguese experience, as the onetime periphery became the central power base.”

“Oh yes, we have the same sexism, the same corruption and the same assistance by the state to help certain people become millionaires,” he said. “Portugal built no schools here, no universities, and they were late with health care. Everything was late.”

In Portugal, a Protector of a People Is Honored - NYTimes.com
“You hear about people who argued that they couldn’t help because it was wartime and they had their own family to worry about, but here was a man with a career, a wife and an incredible amount of children who certainly did do something for others,” Ms. Hartog said.
