European colonialism and the responses it inspired in the second half of the 20th century have shaped our understanding of the world today. Portugal played a critical role in this process. In seeking to define and explain this role it is essential to look back to the documents directly related to this period: the records of the Ministério do Ultramar (MU) [Ministry for Colonial Affairs]. Once the period in which consultation of these records might have heightened obvious tensions had passed, the issue of making them accessible to the public became the goal.
The Historical Archives of Macao will hold another of its popular conservation workshops on Saturday 10th of July from 14.00 to 17.00.
