Spanning six centuries, this course offers students an introduction to the Portuguese-speaking world. Students will practice analytical skills and gain familiarity with the culture and history of Brazil, Angola, Portugal and Mozambique by engaging with literature, art, music and cinema. Historical moments that we will cover in this course include Portugal's colonialist expansion (1450-1700), the Kingdom of Kongo's response to it (1500-1700), the independence movements in Brazil, Angola and Mozambique (1820-1970), and the most recent cultural movements in music and cinema (1970-2000s). Students will examine different forms of colonialism, and how the legacy of colonialism has shaped today's Lusophone world. Moreover, students will contemplate topics of broader humanistic interest, such as national identities, colonialism, transcontinental cultural exchanges, and forms of resistance to colonial oppression.
