Profile

Patricia Schor holds a PhD from Utrecht University. She holds an MA from the International Institute of Social Studies - Erasmus University, with a thesis on Afro-Brazilian religions. Her PhD research was initiated at King's College London and later transferred to the Utrecht University. It focused on the continuities and reconfigurations of the Portuguese empire in contemporary narratives of the Portuguese language, which represent points of contact with "Africa."

At Utrecht University she is an Affiliated Researcher to the Institute for Cultural Inquiry, group Textual Culture; and is a member of the Postcolonial Studies Initiative.

Her research interests are Europe's post-imperial imaginaries, postcolonial representations of Africa, race critical paradigms, Afro-pessimism and intersectional feminism.
