HISP 331 - Luso-Brazilian Voices: Conversations and Composition

Contemporary Brazil and Portugal are sites of profound and exciting cultural expression and social change. Luso-Brazilian Voices explores some of the socio-political pressures that have led to a modern renaissance in writing, popular music, cinema, as well as the fusion of genres made possible by today’s digital technologies. A systematic review of these cultural expressions provides the context for students to practice and refine their oral and written Portuguese skills. Taught in Portuguese. Successful completion of this course satisfies the Macalester College two-year foreign language requirement and can be applied toward the major or minor in Hispanic Studies. Three class hours per week plus tutorial. Prerequisite(s): HISP 111 , or its equivalent, and instructor’s consent. Spring semester. (4 Credits)
