Session Description:

Subscribing to an expansive, non-Eurocentric definition of comparative literature, this roundtable will focus on the challenges and opportunities for approaching Brazilian, Portuguese, and Afro-Lusophone literatures not merely as products of a self-contained “Portuguese-speaking world” but, rather, as key elements in an international system of literary exchanges.


Subject:

  • Portuguese, Luso-Brazilian, and Lusophone Literatures
