PORT 290: LANGUAGE, EXPERIMENTALISM, AND INTERDISCIPLINARITY
IN BRAZILIAN LITERATURE OF THE 20th AND 21th CENTURIES 

Language, Experimentalism, and Interdisciplinarity proposes the comparative, theoretical, and visual approach of several Brazilian authors who produced literary, experimental, and interdisciplinary works between the 1920s and the 2000s. Among some of these authors were Oswald de Andrade, Clarice Lispector, brothers Campos, Arnaldo Antunes, Lenora de Barros, or Paulo Bruscky. The aforementioned interdisciplinar works produced between these decades question the effectiveness of current academic instruments and, at the same time, require the re-elaboration or amplification of the hermeneutic instruments of literary criticism.

 

PORT 290: THE OBSESSIONS OF MODERN LUSO-BRAZILIAN POETS

The Obsessions of Modern Luso-Brazilian Poets focuses, from a postcolonial perspective, on some of the obsessions nurtured by Brazilian and Portuguese poets of the 20th and 21st centuries — and on the variation of these differences between each respective country. Some of these obsessions focus on the question of uselessness (or, rather, of drawing pleasure from being useless), identity, the problems posed by the interdisciplinary or monodisciplinary poem, the expansion of Greco-Latin culture in the modern world, the political or aesthetic resistance, or humor. While these problems are not particular to the Portuguese-Brazilian world, they remain fundamental to understanding the most recent interests driving the central themes and problems of their poetic universes.
