Comments: 
The aim of this course is two-fold: it examines a number of significant works in Brazilian literature where strangers and ?border crossers? are portrayed and constructed. At the same time, this course explores what happens when some of these original texts in Brazilian Portuguese move and cross borders to the English language. How do the characters represented in Machado de Assis, Clarice Lispector, Guimar?es Rosa or Moacyr Scliar, among others, respond to moving, not belonging, shifting to a new culture? And what do we learn from their translation into English about the translation process, about the original, about the target language and culture, about loss and gain, about displacement?
