Brazilian Literature and Culture: From the Baroque to Modernism

A six-week institute for twenty-six college and university faculty, to be held in Campinas, Brazil, on Brazilian literature and culture from Baroque to Modernism, with a language learning component.

We propose a 6-week NEH Summer Institute for College and University Teachers and Scholars, entitled Brazilian Literature and Culture: From the Baroque to Modernism. This Institute will examine from an interdisciplinary perspective the literature, art, and other cultural expressions produced in Brazil between 1654 and 1928. The Institute’s primary goal is to familiarize scholars of Spanish American literatures and cultures with the Brazilian cultural expressions produced during the period under study, to be incorporated into their teaching and research at the US university level. Since most of the primary and secondary texts written in Portuguese by writers, artists, and critics of the period are not available in Spanish or English translations, the second goal of the Institute is to help participants rapidly acquire a basic working knowledge of written Portuguese. This Institute will take place on the campus of the University of Campinas, Brazil, from June 18-July 28, 2007.
