TR 1:00p – 2:15p/section# 28959/3 cr./WH 119
The first of a two-part survey of literature in Portuguese, this
course will cover works written from the medieval period through
romanticism in Brazil and Portugal. The emergence of an African and
African/Brazilian literature will also be discussed. Representative
literary authors and works serve as the basis for interdisciplinary
and cross-cultural commentary of important social, political and
historical issues, including imperialism and overseas expansion,
nation building and revolution.
Course meets jointly with P400.
