Implacable Archives: Creating José Luandino Vieira's Digital Archive

Project description

Archiving José Luandino Vieira’s personal records on Angola

Celebrated author José Luandino Vieira has published numerous works based on the harsh realities of Portuguese colonialism in Angola. Having participated in the struggle against oppression himself, he wrote an assortment of personal notes between 1940 and 1992. These notes delineate his life and grass-roots experiences as Angola vied for independence and achieved self-rule. Recognising that these records are an integral part of a larger historical picture, the LUARC project, funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, will compile, digitise and preserve this large personal archive and make it publicly accessible. To ensure this is done properly, appropriate archival science techniques will be employed. This rich historical resource will serve as an important investigative tool into Angola’s past nationalistic and cultural dynamics.
