Travelling Identities in the Lusophone World (MLP2005)

15 credits

The course focuses on representations of journeys involving Euro- and Afro- Brazilians, other immigrants, and indigenous peoples in the Portuguese-speaking world, putting Lusophone culture at the centre of a wide-ranging analysis of representation, colonialism and history. You will explore a history of Portuguese-speaking culture from the perspective of migration and a history of the Lusophone world through its cultural representations, and you will analyse a variety of genres, including the novel, short-story, cinema and paintings.
