PGSE 3402

Cultural Studies IV

This course sequence is intended for students who usually have had the equivalent to two years of formal instruction in Portuguese, and it is designed to expand the PSGE 3401 & PSGE 3402 courses. 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 discourse analysis in Portuguese, cultural studies, post-colonial studies, and literature of the Portuguese-speaking countries, providing students with different concepts and perspectives, as well as with the development of intercultural sensibility. They will further develop their skills to defend opinion and use hypotheses in extended discourses, maintaining a high degree of linguistic accuracy. 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.

Bibliography for PGSE 3402/03 will vary each year. Material will be provided by the instructors.
