Cultural Studies 3.5
This course sequence is intended for students who have had the equivalent to three to four semesters of formal instruction in Portuguese, and it is designed to expand the PSGE 3398 course. In addition to the contact with language structures through intensive reading and to the exposure to different registers, students enrolled in this program will also develop their intercultural competence through courses divided into thematic-culture related units that are team-taught by faculty and experts from different areas of studies. These thematic units encompass several topics, such as literature of the Portuguese-speaking countries, providing students with different concepts and perspectives, as well as with the development of intercultural sensibility. These content courses may include components such as theoretical readings, critical discussions, debates, and writings, exposing students to cultural products and practices of the Lusophone world. This course sequence is not offered every summer. Bibliography for PGSE 3399/3400 will vary each year.
