Abstract

Books Reviewed Notes 1. The vila of Nossa Senhora do Carmo was elevated to the status of a city in order to become the seat of the only bishopric in colonial Minas Gerais and at the same time re-baptized as Mariana in honor of the Austrian wife of Dom João V, the Austrian Maria Ana. Leal, João. Azorean Identity in Brazil and the United States: Arguments About History, Culture and Transnational Connections. Dartmouth: Tagus Press, 2011. 192 pp. João Leal's ethnographic study examines how two different communities in New England (U.S.) and Santa Catarina (Brazil) construct an Azorean identity discourse within their social setting. By bringing together these two communities, Leal builds upon previous works that focused on the construction of Azorean identity by the immigrant community in the U.S., or within Brazil, or within the Azores Islands. This comparative approach allows Leal to provide a nuanced analysis which critiques the process of Azorean identity construction itself, in its many guises, and questions the reasons behind its articulation. First published in Portuguese in 2007, this 2011 edition is the translation into English with some revisions so as to make it suitable to an undergraduate and non-specialized audience. Concentrating
