Online Course “Introduction to Brazilian Literature”

Email para Contato
The online course “Introduction to Brazilian Literature” was designed to aid students who may not be familiar with Brazilian literature, culture, and/or history in acquiring tools to critically reflect upon Brazilian literary productions and practices of the nineteenth century. Students will be introduced to a variety of literary texts, iconographic materials, and episodes in Brazilian history, and will be encouraged to think in an interdisciplinary manner about the consolidation of the Brazilian nation-state.
The course is free, open for all, and will be delivered in English via distance learning, enabling non-Portuguese speakers to be acquainted with Brazilian culture and history. Certificates will be offered upon course completion. Spaces are limited.
This course will be taught by Giovanna Gobbi, a Ph.D. candidate in Brazilian Literature at the Universidade de São Paulo (USP), a Fulbright Program alumna, and a scholar-in-residence at the Brasiliana Guita and José Mindlin Library (BBM-USP). Her research interests lie in 19th-century Latin American literatures, nation-building narratives, indigenous and Afro-Latin American representation, ecocriticism, and the visual arts.
