About

Isabelle Lukau is researching the everyday life of Angolan people during Portuguese colonial rule in modern day Luanda and Benguela. Lukau’s work encompasses the transcription of legal documents from both regions with the intent of gaining a nuanced perspective of what life was like for Angolans during colonial rule by focusing on an array of disputes and accusations found in these documents. Lukau is working with Mariana Candido, an Associate Professor of History, who is also the chair of the Lusophone African Studies Organization at the University of Notre Dame.
