The UMass Dartmouth Summer Program in Portuguese, now in its 20th year, has received a grant of $10,000 from the Luso-American Foundation of Lisbon, to be used for student scholarships.
The Center for Portuguese Studies and Culture, in partnership with the departments of Portuguese, English and History, announces the 20th Annual Summer Program in Portuguese at UMass Dartmouth, June 24 – July 26, 2013. Situated in the heart of North America's oldest and largest Portuguese-speaking community, our program provides a unique cultural environment for learning Portuguese in a richly varied natural immersion setting.
Tagus Press at UMass Dartmouth, in partnership with the University Press of New England (UPNE), announces the publication of Almost Gone by Brian Sousa. Alternately gritty, suspenseful, and illuminating, Brian Sousa's debut collection of interlocking stories depicts the Portuguese American experience from a new perspective.
Tagus Press is the publishing arm of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Center for Portuguese Studies and Culture, a multidisciplinary international studies and outreach unit dedicated to the study of the language, literatures and cultures of the Portuguese-speaking world. Recognized as a leader in bringing Portuguese literature, history, and culture to an English-speaking audience, Tagus Press's groundbreaking translations and journals address both Portuguese life abroad and in the United States.
