The importance of studying Anglo-Portuguese relations resides, to a great extent, upon the information (on the author and his subject) which is obtainable whenever the Self writes about the Other. The debate surrounding the Self and the Other, unity and diversity or oneness and multiplicity are indissociable from Anglo-Portuguese Studies and, indeed, from the cultural act, itself, because the comparison between cultures significantly enhances the perception of identity, by recognising a dimension which is, at once, both human and supranational, an aspect which should be visible in the articles selected for publication. In fact, the portrayal of the Other inevitably conveys a certain image of the viewer, so that the dichotomy of “culture which sees” and “culture which is seen” is a particularly sensitive issue in this context, which implies that this aspect is omnipresent across all the articles chosen for publication. Devoting itself to a wider knowledge of the study of Portuguese or English-speaking countries, from the earliest days of Anglo-Portuguese relations (12th century) to the present, the Journal covers every period in which there was any form of contact between the two cultures. In this intercultural dialogue which should be a feature of articles for publication, the “aesthetic of diversity” is expressed as an interest in the Other, in difference and alterity, whilst the “aesthetic of identity” is expressed by the definition of the Self, with all the intellectual marks left by its own culture.
