Topics course.: Advanced level capstone reflection on aspects of Brazilian culture, society, and language through the framework of Translation Studies. The course examines how Brazil has been translated in film, literature, and other cultural realms (music, advertising, tourism, food). Through the lenses of power dynamics, migration, and the notion of a post-translational world, it poses questions related to the purposes, reach, and importance of translation, and how these issues have changed over time. A practicum component with ties to Brazilian communities in New England will allow students to define and complete individual translation projects. Taught in English and Portuguese. Prerequisite:  200-level course in Portuguese or the equivalent.
