PGSE3203

Cultural Studies II

This course sequence is intended for students who have completed one to two semesters of formal instruction in Portuguese, and it is designed to expand the PSGE 3201 & PSGE 3202 courses. In this program, modes of communication are integrated within cultural thematic units that explore the diversity and complexity of the Portuguese-speaking countries nowadays. Students will further develop their communicative skills through intensive exposure to authentic reading in the target language, debates, in-class presentations, and discussions of cultural phenomena in depth, while increasing and enriching their vocabulary and being in contact with different registers. These units may include tests and/or final projects. Among other fields, these thematic units may encompass the study of the environment and sustainability of the Amazon rain forest, Afro-Brazilian heritage and tradition, media in the Portuguese-speaking world, culture and civilization of the Lusophone world, paradoxes of Brazil, and art history, which may also include participation in workshops and exhibitions. The interpersonal and in-depth exchanges will help them grasp the target language culture, as well as develop fluency as they use a more structured argument to convey meaning with confidence and accuracy.

Bibliography for PGSE 3203 will vary each year. Material will be provided by the instructors.
