Somos Nos: Teaching Afro-Brazilian Identity

New Orleans, LA

June 14 - June 18, 2015 

Application Deadline: April 5, 2015

The Stone Center for Latin American Studies at Tulane University, the Center for Latin American Studies at Vanderbilt, and the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Institute at the University of Georgia are sponsoring a summer institute on Portuguese language education and Brazilian culture.  K-12 educators of any discipline and grade-level are welcome to apply to attend this 5 day institute.  The focus of the institute is on the language, culture, and performance of Brazil.  The workshop will include exposure to the Portuguese language, discussions with scholars of Brazilian culture and performance, viewings of Brazilian films, and performances by Brazilian groups.  Throughout the week, educators will work to develop interdisciplinary curricula, which they can bring back to their schools to teach and share with colleagues.  There is a specialized track to this institute in order to better support participants.  There is a Portuguese Language track which consists of intensive morning language sessions for those interested in receiving a crash course in basic Portuguese. This track is open to participants with Spanish language background and little to no Portuguese training.  While this track is meeting every morning, sessions for those interested in cultures of Brazil will take place.  For more information, contact Denise Woltering Vargas at 504.862.3143 or at crcrts@tulane.edu or visit the Institute webpage​.
