FLAS eligible

When:
June 12 - July 23, 2011
Program Summary:
The Stone Center for Latin American Studies invites students interested in Portuguese language and
Brazilian studies to participate in a summer program in Brazil during the summer of 2011. São Paulo, the
largest metropolis in Latin America, is an exciting center for fine arts, theater, music and cultural life.
This city is a medley of Brazilians from all the country's 26 states and from multiple ethnic groups
(Japanese, Italian, Jewish, Syrian and Lebanese, etc.) which makes for an exciting mix of traditions and
fabulous food on every street. Plunge into the vibrant entertainment scene and explore an extraordinary
nightlife. When tired of the fast pace of São Paulo, head to the beaches which are just a couple of hours
away.
While São Paulo can sweep you off your feet, you need to keep standing to attend the exciting and
vigorous academic program organized by Tulane and Vanderbilt Universities. In the summer of 2011
classes will be taught by a team of prominent scholars, including Emanuelle Oliveira, Associate Professor
of Cinema and Luso-Brazilian and Afro-Brazilian Literature at Vanderbilt University, as well as by
several professors from PUC São Paulo (Catholic University of São Paulo, one of the top rated academic
institutions in Brazil). The classes will provide for immersion into Brazilian language and culture and
supplemented by field trips in São Paulo and beyond.
After a first visit to Brazil, you will be tempted to go back and when you do, you will have a command of
Portuguese and an in-depth understanding of this country's people, culture and society. Such experience
and knowledge may prove useful for your career aspirations. Brazil is gaining in international reputation
and will host the 2014 Soccer World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympics. With a thriving economy and
a steady consolidation of its democracy, Brazil is one of the leading nations of the new global order. The
2011 summer program will allow you to witness this transformation first-hand.

Center for Portuguese Studies and Culture, University of Massachusetts Dartmouth
18th Annual Summer Program in Portuguese
Destination:
Dartmouth, Massachusetts
When:
July 5-August 4, 2011
Program Summary:
Theme for 2011: Border Points
Over the last twenty years, the question of borders has become one of primary importance for
students of foreign languages and literary and cultural studies. How is the expanded discussion
of borders pertinent to the Portuguese-speaking world and its diasporas, specially as it relates to
political division, cultural transit, linguistic difference and socioeconomic inequality? What are
the possibilities for border crossing at points that are not always recognized as being bordered:
whether urban centers, academic institutions, or edges of continents whose links to other
cultures, languages and spaces may not be immediately apparent on any map? Ultimately, what
are the borders that all of us live on, and what kinds of learning, whether of languages, cultures,
narratives or other alternative
ways of knowing, will be necessary in this century to prepare us to cross over?
