Mozambique's history covered in three books

História de Moçambique abordada em três livros

The Institute for Research into the History of the National Liberation Struggle (IPHLLN) intends to produce three collections that bring together various narratives on the contemporary history of Portuguese-speaking African countries (PALOP).

The collection, whose first volume is due out later this year, will focus on the struggle against Portuguese colonial rule in Mozambique, Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau and São Tomé and Príncipe.

The collection project was decided by the heads of state of the five African countries colonized by Portugal and aims to record and preserve the 'liberating' memories of this epic.

With this in mind, the city of Maputo yesterday hosted the first methodological seminar entitled "State of the Art on the History of the National Liberation Struggle in Mozambique".

The eventscheduled for May or June in Guinea-Bissauseveral national researchers took part and it is hoped that another similar seminar will be held, bringing together researchers from all the countries involved.

Analyzing studies on the history of Mozambique, especially the national liberation struggle, was the aim of the seminar, which brought together work teams set up over two months ago.

According to historian and vice-rector of Eduardo Mondlane University, Joel das Neves Tembe, the first collection consists of three chapters, the first of which characterizes Mozambican society and beyond in the colonial context.

"Each of our nations, although colonized by the same Portuguese colonial regime, has its own specificities," said Joel das Neves Tembe, who is also a spokesperson for the initiative. (Text: Newspaper News)
