Ana Margarida's research interests lie in postcolonial, feminist and cultural studies in Portuguese-speaking contexts. She is the author of Magic Stones and Flying Snakes: Gender and the Postcolonial Exotic in the work of Paulina Chiziane and Lídia Jorge (Peter Lang 2012, forthcoming). She is currently working on two different projects: 'Postcolonial art and Literature in the Portuguese-Speaking World'; and 'The International Reception of Novas Cartas Portuguesas' (Barreno et al, 1972), having recently published the article 'Novas Cartas Portuguesas: the Making of a Reputation' (Journal of Feminist Scholarship 2012).
