A new ICNOVA publication entitled Para uma história do jornalismo português no mundo [A history of the portuguese journalism in the world] is available on open access edited by Alberto Pena-Rodríguez (Universidade de Vigo) and António Hohlfeldt (Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio Grande do Sul).
This book brings together a set of texts that address the Portuguese journalistic phenomenon abroad (outside what are today the borders of modern-day Portugal) throughout history, in different geographical and cultural contexts. Through different methodologies of an interdisciplinary nature, multiple aspects of the professional itinerary of journalists, editors or directors of media, formats and narrative content are analysed, as well as other aspects related to their socio-economic, political, cultural and even educational influence in different contexts. It is, therefore, an approach to the history of Portuguese-language journalism in the world conceived in an open and transversal way, covering four main continental areas (America, Europe, Africa and Asia) from approaches that observe the phenomenon both from paradigmatic or singular perspectives that marked the course of Portuguese-language journalism in other territories, and from a diachron-ic, longitudinal, panoramic, thematic, descriptive, qualitative or critical view of some areas or episodes in particular. The analysis looks not only at the journalistic production of the Portuguese colonial empire, but also at some of the most relevant Portuguese emigrant or exiled communities in countries such as Brazil, the United States, France and England.
