API COURSES

These courses are offered specially for API students but may have other international students in attendance. Depending on enrollment, only 2 of the 3 following courses may be offered.

02314 Portuguese Migration in Local Perspective – Race, Ethnicity, and Nation (3)

This course examines topics in race, ethnicity, migration, and nationalism in Portugal and in the Portuguese speaking world using Lisbon as a field site. Combining classroom lectures and guest speakers along with visits to local neighborhoods, socio-political associations, institutions and cultural events, students will examine themes that elucidate how race and ethnicity function in Portuguese society, providing a critical examination of the concepts of EU identity and Lusofonia in post-colonial contexts. Explored in this context will be transformations and adaptations in Portuguese politics, culture, and local economies, providing students with insight into context-specific definitions of race and ethnicity, Portugal?s place in the EU, and how the country?s historical connections to Africa, Asia, and the Americas continue to shape local life and cultural identity.

02278 Portuguese Literature in Translation (3)

This course will explore outstanding works of Portuguese literature and culture, with readings, lectures, class visits in Lisbon and discussions in English.
