Images play a key role in political communication and the ways we
come to understand the power structures that shape society. Nowhere
is this more evident than in the process of empire building, in
which visual language has long been a highly effective means of
overpowering another culture with one's own values and beliefs.
Visualizing Portuguese Power examines the visual arts within the
Portuguese empire between the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries.
With a focus on the appropriation of Portuguese-Christian art
within the colonies, the book looks at how these and other objects
could be staged to generate new layers of meaning.
