The PSR is a 100 % non-partisan academic forum, an Open Intellectual Convivium -- for the study of countries, regions, communities, and institutions sharing, exploring, transforming, or developing a Portuguese, Brazilian, or other Luso-related heritage

Multi-lingual, peer reviewed, open-minded, agenda-free. Articles, review essays, reviews in English, Portuguese, French, Spanish and other languages.


“The important thing is to never stop questioning ” (A. Einstein)


A revista PSR deseja, a todos, saúde, veracidade, e paz no ano de 2023. Never put ideological conformity ('group-think') above complete scholarly integrity. All else is 'gaslighting'. "The whole point of science is to question accepted dogmas" (Freeman Dyson)

The PSR / Baywolf Press ensure a full panoply of academic publishing services: • handling of manuscripts (articles, books, research data), with peer review • full-service development of periodicals and books • we operate in English, Portuguese, Spanish, and French, and offer a venue for Lusophone-related material in other languages (German, Italian, the Scandinavian and Slavic zone, Finno-Ugric zone, and more) • la revue PSR et Éditions Baywolf offrent une palette de services en langue française: examen par des pairs & appui rédactionnel complet pour monographies, anthologies d'essais, et recueils d'études savantes • in all research and publishing matters you are invited to contact us on-line. Notification: The PSR / Baywolf Press maintain, from this point forward, a raised level of referee scrutiny for all submitted papers.*

* This referee scrutiny tightening is externally induced. It is a prudential response to the various 'peer review' scandals that erupted at major science and humanities publishers in the summer and fall of 2022, plus to texts generated by ChatGPT. We are fully aware of all the pro et contra debates. Fully aware of the specific instances, responses, and mitigation processes. We are also fully aware of the entire debate around 'the rise and fall of Peer Review'. Aware of the highly ideological and politicized nature of the talking point that goes "but has this been peer reviewed?"Translation: we have been at this game very long, and we certainly know how to play the game, hardball. We, at the PSR, are very simply invested in original, accurate, meticulous, precise, honest, probing, future-oriented scholarship, unafraid to ask hard and unpopular questions and to utterly defy group-think, regardless of what government regulators or institutional 'gatekeepers' may say. We reject government, bureaucratic, ministerial, political party, and/or ideological control over what the results of research purportedly 'ought to be' according to some so-called Central Policy or mandate or "behavioural nudging" or an AI.



Current Calls for Papers, 2023 (with carry-over from 2022)

The Lusophone Studies Association (LSA) has closed its Call for Papers. The International Conference "The Lusophone World and its Diasporas" will be held from June 28 to July 1, 2023 at York University, Toronto, Canada. For full details please consult
the following link (blue target) or the banner-link, below. Both will take you to the LSA website, Toronto Conference section . You may also go the LSA website directly and use its navigation tools (in the LSA site banner, or in the 'navigation options'). Conference Registration is now open:



The Lusophone Studies Association (LSA) is pleased to draw your attention to our two committee-adjudicated prizes for 'best paper', associated with the LSA Conferences: a Graduate Student Prize and a Post-Doctoral Prize, each in the amount of $ 1,000.00 CDN. For details, please consult the following link (blue target):

The PSR / Baywolf Press
have closed two topical Calls for Papers (our Standing General Call for Papers, 2022-2023-2024 continues, of course, as well as other Calls). Note: even though the two proposal Calls posted immediately below closed on 30 October 2022, we were still accepting certain proposals into January 2023, at our sole discretion. The deadline for fully finished papers was 15 February 2023, the deadline for Focus Issue or Edited Volume proposals was 15 January 2023, as previously announced.

(A) Mutual Regards I: The World through Lusophone Eyes and Portuguese-speakers through the Eyes of Others -- The Era of the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars (some chronologically prior pilot studies -- which logically would not fit the announced timeframe because they pre-date the later eighteenth century -- are being featured in the Summer 2022 issue of the PSR (30 [1]), as a project 'pilot'). The issue, somewhat delayed, will be shipping in late February 2023.

(B) Mutual Regards II: The World through Lusophone Eyes and Portuguese-speakers through the Eyes of Others --
The First World War Era (including the October Revolution and its Immediate Post-1918 Ideological Sequels)
. We were considering a variety of interesting possibilities and propositions, and we had therefore agreed to a substantial extension of the original deadlines. We aimed to accommodate all our peer reviewed authors, and manage our annual space wisely, in scheduled issues, Edited Volumes, and Monographs.

The PSR and Baywolf Press
support The 4 D's Framework -- Doubt, Dissent, Debate against Dogma. It is very clear by now that rational freedom of speech, freedom of thought, and even freedom of core (i.e. indispensable) research is de facto under systematic regulatory, institutional, and legislative attack. The actors involve political parties, ideologies, governments, lobbyists, funding agencies, numerous corporations, and others, all around Planet Earth. The freedom to reach conclusions 100% independently and to speak with utter honesty about those conclusions has become manifestly inconvenient to very many entrenched holders of power and influence. It is not, of course, freedom of speech and research that represents a 'threat' to Humanity. On the contrary, the dire threat to the entire future of Humanity is mechanistic 97% or 100% Cult-like consensus. "If all think the same, no one is actually thinking at all." There are numeours variations of this dictum out there, Internet-'attributed' to so many different people that the attributions have become a meaningless comedy. But the dictum as such is fully accurate. Research results that are shaped by an explicit or implicit highly politicized requirement to 'mobilize', 'fall in line', 'keep step and shut your mouth' (the classic and well-known "Maul halten und weiter dienen!") are not research. They are mere iterative 'messaging'. They endlessly reiterate and adulation-'confirm' a dogma and the talking points of a specific ideology, or 'preferred' theory. Nothing new is being produced. Existential self-censoring prevails. What reigns supreme is one or another so-called 'revolutionary' dogma that once was new and exciting, perhaps, but now is stale. And because it is stale, it increasingly depends on simply being imposed. This is of course a high road to civilizational collapse (which is what some people would in fact prefer, having expressed a clear philosophical and misanthropic preference for it ever since the late 1960s). Just for the sake of scoring 'points' against 'disinformation' -- aka completely valild data you don't like, dug up by people you don't like. A heroic cause, surely, that is worth ruining a perfectly good civlization or Planet. But then, what is the fuss? Pol Pot ruined Cambodia too, filled the Killing Fields with skulls and skeletons. For glorious ideology. Brother Number One. Tuol Sleng Security Prison 21 (S-21), anyone (1975-1979)? Used waterboarding, too, already back then. Very, very advanced. A true heroic pioneer.

It is thus imperative to (a) defend an untramelled right to dissent and also (b) defend the right to challenge critically and to keep disproving meticulously and with utter honest precision all scientific and scholarly and political data or concepts that readily crumble upon the slightest exposure to sober and independent tests. 'Semantic' 指鹿為馬 -- zhi lu wei ma is useless and 100% self-defeating. It is ephemeral baka (バカ, ばか), baka-mono (馬鹿者) , 馬鹿 (whether one consults the Unbo Irohashū [運歩色葉集] or the 源氏物語 [Genji monogatari] [c. 1100s] or goes back to 207 BCE and earlier still -- 馬鹿者 simply is and always will be just 馬鹿者: always just the same totalitarian 'word-salad' disguise for ulterior and corrupt [political / ideological] purposes [and a purported exertion of raw power rooted in an enforced acceptance of internally quite contradictory nonsense]').
Freedom of speech is an existential requirement, whether one agrees with any given well-supported research or argument, or disagrees. This is an issue of what is purely pragmatic, in one's own actual interest. Those utterly despised, censored, and punished 'other' ideas may in fact prove to be correct and entirely essential. A Monopoly on Truth is as bad and self-defeating as any other form of monopoly or dictatorship. Stale, rigid, and absolutely futile. Plus, if everything and anything, whatever and whatsoever, can purportedly be 'explained' (without any really valid proof or valid explanation) as a 'sign' of the validity of your Theory, then your Theory is worthless. You are in fact enrolled in a Cult that is divorced from genuine scholarship, and elevates monocausal, monoTheory, monoChemicalElement dogma as a Universal Explanans. Which only confirms that this is in fact a Cult. This maxim holds right and left, whatever (if anything at all, any more) such tags might actually mean. Bottom line: If one is reduced to enforcing one's ideology through censorship, overt or covert repression, Emergency Laws, speech control, and Police / Guards cordons, because one is paroxysmally afraid of all dissenting analysis, then one unfortunately holds back the development of alternatives (whether 'new' or old and improved) that may prove essential for the future and survival of Humanity. It is of course always possible that one intends to hold such developments back because one (a) truly despises Humanity as 'inconvenience' and Planet-infestation, or (b) clings to power for purposes of pure political self-preservation, given that one has lied so many times that Truth is now logically one's existential enemy. You may now go to the bathroom and rage in front of the mirror, so that you would see 'who you are'.

Very simply, do not censor others, consider arguments on pure technical merit and quality of scholarship, read even what you despise (because it may benefit you unexpectedly), do not persecute others, do not 'deplatform', do not 'doxx', do not get others dismissed, do not misuse power, do not lie about what others have said, do not use the cloak of The System to do your very own dirty work while expecting yummy rewards, awards, grants and bonuses. Does this sound 'uncomfortable', perhaps? If interested, read (or not -- no one compels, NOT at OUR site) our longer statement on > core intellectual freedoms <.


Publishing Program, 2023

For our past and future volumes, please visit our Forthcoming and Recent webpages. A new monographic series of Edited Volumes was successfully launched (see announcement below -- the initial volumes included, among other, Rivers and Shores: 'Fluviality' and the Occupation of Colonial Amazonia, edited and curated by Rafael Chambouleyron and Luís Costa e Sousa. An edited volume of reflections centered on Ceuta and Northern Morocco, 1415-2015, and a volume of studies on Minas Gerais (see below) are now available. Paul Christopher Manuel's monograph, Voices of the Revolution: Revisiting the Portuguese Revolution of 25 April 1974 -- Interviews and Insights, with interview texts in mirror Portuguese and English versions, was released on 30-31 December 2019, just before the COVID-19 crisis. The roster of publications in progress includes new core translations into English of selected classic Portuguese sources of enduring cultural and research significance (in particular a new critical English translation of the Esmeraldo de Situ Orbis and the first ever English translation of the Manuscrito de Valentim Fernandes, involving a rigorous comparison between the published Portuguese and other versions and the original of the Manuscrito de Valentim Fernandes preserved in the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek (Munich)). The Valentim Fernandes project will finally be fully ready in 2023 (unforeseen labour-related COVID delays had intervened in the final stages): (a) a full digital text of the transcription, newly derived from the manuscript and formatted to reflect the original accurately, (b) a full span of geospatially aware place name concordances (an analytical key), and (c) a digital atlas.

The announcements are occasional, purely voluntary, and simply reflect our warm and pleased appreciation. These are not to be considered 'advertisements'.

Hugo Miguel Crespo & Annemarie Jordan Gschwend, The “Pangolin Fan”: An Imperial Ivory Fan from Ceylon. Artistic Confluence and Global Gift Exchange between Sri Lanka and Renaissance Portugal (Buenos Aires: Jaime Eguiguren Art & Antiques, 2022). ISBN: 978-84-09-41680-6. This richly illustrated book presents a definitive study of nine imperial ivory fans from Renaissance Ceylon (present-day Sri Lanka), carved between 1542 and 1551, in the royal workshops of the lost Sinhalese kingdom of Kōttē (කෝට්ටේ රාජධානිය). These rare ivories, which display a mix of Hindu and Buddhist iconography, are today dispersed amongst public and private collections in Europe. They were commissioned by King Bhuvanekabāhu VII (1521-1551), at the height of his reign, as political gifts for high-ranking members of the Portuguese royal family. Five intricately carved Kōttē fans were earmarked for the Portuguese Queen, Catarina of Austria (r. 1525-1578), a Habsburg infanta and youngest sister of Emperor Charles V.

Betrand Livreiros
As always, we are more than glad to promote the Bertrand booksellers' system. Their meme -- "Passionate for Books" fully matches our own. Whoever, on their team, coined the other meme -- "Fazemos História, estando no presente" -- possessed clear insight. We agree entirely. Watch their current Manifesto Bertrand -- Somos Livros on YouTube, at https://www.bertrand.pt/online/somos-livros . Note that we are not part of the Programa de Afiliados da Bertrand. We do not promote any thing in exchange for any rewards -- on principle. We are not a Globalist mannequin in a 'social network' of 'perks' -- it would undermine our Critical Independence. We merely express appreciation.

Librairie Frédéric Douin : Used, Rare, and Special Item Books

Note the most recent additional catalogue, 28 January 2023, and all previous catalogues available. The recent 'silent' gems, all around, not just in 'Portuguese Studies', were: Johann Joachim Wincklemann, Histoire de l'art chez les anciens (Paris: Saillant, 1766); Anonymous, Les stratagèmes et les ruses de guerre, tirez des historiens grecs, latins & françois, tant anciens que modernes (Paris, 1704) [vol. in-16°]; Augustin Redondo, ed., Les problèmes de l'exclusion en Espagne (XVIe-XVIIe siècles); Idéologie et discours (Paris: Sorbonne, 1983); Freddy Thiriet, Régestes des délibérations du Sénat de Venise concernant la Romanie, vols. 1 et 2 (Paris: Mouton, 1958-1959); Duchesse d'Abrantès, Mémoires de la Générale Junot, duchesse d'Abrantès. Souvenirs intimes sur l'enfance, la jeunesse, la vie privée de Napoléon Bonaparte, général et premier consul (Paris: P.L.U., 1913); Cornélius De Pauw, Recherches philosophiques sur les Américains, ou Mémoires intéressants pour servir à l'histoire de l'espèce humaine (London, 1771); Baltasar Gracián, Maximes de Baltazar Gracien, traduites de l'espagnol, avec les Réponses aux critiques de l'"Homme universel" et du "Héros" traduites du même auteur (Paris: Rollin Fils, 1730); Gabriel-Henri Gaillard, Histoire de Marie de Bourgogne, fille de Charles-le-Téméraire, qui épousa Maximilien, premier archiduc d'Autriche, depuis empereur (Amsterdam & Paris: Leclerc, 1757); plus many more. And and as a fabulous anti-Establishment satirical dessert, Honoré Daumier, Les gens de justice [collection of definitely not-so-kind caricatures] (Paris: Trinckvel, 1991). Shop at Douin -- rescue and cherish books. So that you could one day show your grandchildren: "This is actually what a 300-year-old book looked like"! As Douin posted: 'even books, not only stones, are part and parcel of Our Heritage'. "Be Curious: and Life Shall Only be More Beautiful !" Some people burn, banish, defame, 'cancel', and censor books (frequently without knowing anything at all about the actual content [in multiple languages that they neither read nor speak, thus feeling free to 'cancel' or 'dismiss' on a whim]). Other people save and preserve priceless books, even at the cost of their own life. Reference is to the iconic (in this respect) Ian Caldwell, The Rule of Four (2004), which is much more than an "ultimate puzzle book." This is a 'forgotten' work of utter Humanist defiance against zealotry, ignorant censorship, the decline of a free & genuine Academia, and/or Savonarola-style book-'cancelling'-burning. You know very well which side we -- the PSR -- stand on. Yet, we would never refuse to publish a diversity of 'sides'. You draw your own conclusions from that ... . Just do NOT impose those conclusions on others, and especially NOT using the Police, the Courts, Internet 'Disinformation' [so-called] Commissioners, the DSA, so-called 'Authorities' and so-called 'Trusted Sources' or ludicrously paid-for 'Fact Checkers'). You know what the old song says, "Sweet dreams are made of this / Who am I to disagree?" (Eurythmics, the absolutely haunting Track 6 of 'Sweet Dreams [Are Made of This], 1983, originally recorded on dirt cheap basement and second-hand studio equipment). It all indeed is -- and has been for entire millennia -- a question of fundamental 'values'.

Paul Holberton Publishing 
The Global City: On the Streets of Renaissance Lisbon, edited by Annemarie Jordan Gschwend and K. J. P. Lowe (Paul Holberton Publishing: London, 2015; ISBN 9781907372889; 240 pp.) draws us into the past sensory universe of a Lisbon pre-dating the sudden seismic shock and tsunami of 1755. It does so from the starting point of two large-scale sixteenth-century vistas by an anonymous Flemish master that depict the Rua Nova dos Mercadores commercial and financial thoroughfare. Acquired in 1866 by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, the vistas contribute a unique spatio-temporal window into the past, at street level, bustling with the stark contradictions and contrasts of a global metropolis. The volume conjoins the two works of art with a wealth of data from newly found or suitably valorized archival documents, accompanied by a carefully selected display of little known or unpublished images of contemporary trade staples, curiosities, luxury and prestige items, naturalia, exotica, and other objects. A physical expression of the worldwide tangle of commerce, the Rua Nova as an architectural construct symbolically echoed the estuary of the river Tagus as a natural feature opening out to the Atlantic and to the oceans far beyond. The book Iets readers glimpse Lisbon and its material culture in all the vibrant cosmopolitanism characterizing this major trading hub of the Renaissance world, a hub whose essence and texture were to be forever altered by one of the planet's iconic natural cataclysms – an earthquake and a tsunami – on Saturday, 1 November 1755, the holiday of All Saints' Day.
