Module overview

This course is designed to expand and deepen students’ knowledge of the cultures of the Portuguese-speaking world, bringing together written texts, visual and conceptual art, political materials, and cinema from twentieth-century Portugal, Brazil, and Lusophone Africa. In addition to building a specialised knowledge base on the recent histories, politics and cultures of these countries and regions, during the module students will sharpen their skills of analysis, critical thinking and debate, and learn how the themes, issues and processes that have defined the Lusophone world interconnect with wider global issues.
