Materials and class discussions will center around themes of colonialism, the struggle for independence, post-colonialism, gender, class, race, dictatorships, national identity, historical memory, and (im)migration. This course includes an explicit focus on comparison between the cultures of Brazil, Portugal and those of the PALOP (Portuguese-Speaking nations of Africa), specifically their experiences with colonialism, the path to independence, and post-colonialism.
