Institute of Modern Languages Research One-day symposium 14:00–20:00 Woburn Suite, G22/26 (Senate House)

Global Portuguese This symposium explores the global expansion of Portuguese language, literature, and music. The linguistic impact of the Lusitanians is recognised in South America (Brazil), Africa (Angola, Mozambique, Guinea-Bissau, São Tomé and Príncipe, and Cape Verde), and Asia (Macau and East Timor). But Portuguese linguistic impressions have split into areas outside the official empire and we seek to understand the nature of intercultural interactions. How did a country with limited resources make an impression that outlasted successive imperial powers that followed them? How did the Portuguese bridge the cultural gap between themselves and ‘others’? Speakers will use contemporary literary texts, languages spoken in the Lusophone countries, identities constructed, and also live music to bring out the Portuguese imprint in the world. This event is supported by the Coffin Trust Fund. Fee applicable advance registration required https://modernlanguages.sas. ac.uk/events/event/15147
