Myth, Memory and Identity Politics in Lusophone Cinema

Nicola Trowbridge Cooney

Back to "Fall 2018" courses

This course will analyze the role of cinema in the construction (and deconstruction) of national and transnational discourses in the Portuguese-speaking world. We will examine a number of recurring cultural topics in a wide variety of films from Africa, Brazil and Europe, situating works within their socio-historical contexts and tracing the development of national cinemas and their interaction with global aesthetics and trends.
