Abstract

Authoritarian regimes tend to develop a contradictory relationship with travel. On the one hand, they promote it, for propaganda purposes, on the other hand, they restrict it, for fear of the disruptive effects that might arise to the stability of State’s self and hetero-perceptions.
Starting from the wide range of German travel books about Portugal and Portuguese on Germany published during the Nazi period, the article seeks to address the complex relational network in which travel, literature and the State find themselves involved at the time. Special attention is given to the books by Friedrich Sieburg (Neues Portugal, 1937) and by Gerhard Pommeranz-Liedtke and Gertrud Richert (Portugal, aufstrebender Staat am Atlantik, 1939).

Os regimes autoritários tendem a ter uma relação contraditória com a viagem. Por um lado, promovem-na, com intuitos propagandísticos, por outro lado, limitam-na, com receio dos efeitos fracturantes que dela possam advir para a estabilidade das auto e heteropercepções do Estado. Partindo da grande diversidade de livros de viagens alemães sobre Portugal e portugueses sobre a Alemanha publicados durante o período nazi, o artigo procura reflectir sobre a complexa teia relacional em que a viagem, a literatura e o Estado então se vêem envolvidos. É dada especial atenção aos livros de Friedrich Sieburg (Neues Portugal, 1937) e de Gerhard Pommeranz-Liedtke e Gertrud Richert (Portugal, aufstrebender Staat am Atlantik, 1939).
