Brazilian Literature: Contemporary Urban Fiction. An NEH Summer Seminar for 
College and University Teachers
Arizona State University
June 17-July 12, 2013 (to be held in São Paulo)

The seminar will focus on five major works of Brazilian urban fiction, basically 
from the twentieth century. Through a detailed examination of these works as 
literary texts that interpret the urban experience in Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, 
Curitiba, and Porto Alegre, the seminar will provide 16 participants (14 
professors and 2 advanced doctoral students) with an important grounding in 
Brazilian literature. Participants will be college and university professors of 
Latin American studies, some of whom may have some familiarity with Brazil. The 
latter will have the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of Brazilian 
literature, while other participants will receive a solid introduction to 
Brazilian culture through major literary texts. Portuguese remains a critical 
language in the U.S., and both the seminar proper and the language workshop that 
will be an auxiliary part of the program will contribute toward addressing the 
critical lack of trained scholars in the field.

For further information, contact Prof. David William Foster, Arizona State 
University, david.foster@asu.edu.

Please note that NEH seminars are open to scholars from any disciplines, not 
just ones that directly match the topic of the seminar. For example, if the 
proposal makes sense thematically with the seminar, we would be interested in 
receiving it for consideration.
