Creole’s Historical Presences

(p.27) Chapter 1 Creole’s Historical Presences
Cape Verde, Let's Go

Derek Pardue

University of Illinois Press

This chapter provides historical depth to the claim of a Creole citizenship by analyzing the spatial presence of Africanity inside Lisbon as well as Portugal's special relationship with Cape Verde. It first discusses Creole's historical presences in Portugal before turning to state representations of Africanity and space. It then considers Creole citizenship in Cape Verde, along with Lisbon spatiality and colonial management of space, language, and education. It also examines Kriolu as a language and identity and as a unique formation in Portuguese colonialism. Finally, it assesses the link between racialization and labor practices in the context of citizenship. It argues that Creole has been a significant presence in the formation of “Portuguese” identity, created by encounters and displacements that occurred between Portugal and West and Central Western Africa.

Keywords:   racialization, Africanity, Lisbon, Portugal, Cape Verde, Creole, Creole citizenship, spatiality, Kriolu, Portuguese identity
