The course description for HISP-P 495 is as follows:
This course surveys the writing of some of the most influential thinkers, literary historians, and cultural critics in the Lusophone tradition, including two major figures of the Portuguese Enlightenment, Ribeiro Sanches and Luís António Verney, and others such as Joaquim Nabuco, Gilberto Freyre, Antônio Cândido, Silviano Santiago, Roberto Schwarz, Alfredo Bosi, Jorge de Sena, Eduardo Lourenço, Boaventura Sousa Santos. Alongside these canonical thinkers we also read women-authored essays and manifestos. Our task will be to study the aesthetic debates and the sociopolitical contexts informing these texts, reflect on how these intellectual and philosophical traditions have shaped Lusophone literaryhistory and culture, as well as to reflect on their form and methods.
