In his study ‘Imperial and Colonial Encounters: Some Reflections’, Sanjay Subrahmanyam argues that an account of local histories such as that of Goa can provide an alternative view of the possible connections between Asian and Latin American colonial empires. The telling of Goa’s history formed the basis for mapping one kind of narrative about the transition from Iberian to British colonialism. Hence, the nineteenth century in Goa emerges as the terrain which is extricated with difficulty from its inscription by Indian nationalism. This book explores different locations of print production by Goans to show how the representations of various groups were enabled by print. In articles that address the various strands to Goan historiography, Goa is either celebrated as an extension of Portugal’s history or integrated as an ‘integrationist’ attempt into India’s history.

Keywords:   Goa, Sanjay Subrahmanyam, history, colonialism, nationalism, print, Portugal, India
