Much of what we do is embodied by LACSI’s Initiatives. These interdisciplinary collaborations serve as incubators for ideas and instruments for educational and social change. As new initiatives are developed in collaboration with LACSI-affiliated faculty, they will be displayed on this page.
PORTUGUESE LANGUAGE & BRAZILIAN STUDIES
The main goal of the Portuguese Initiative is to create a bridge between the cultures of the Portuguese-speaking world and our student population at UGA. To that end, we have hosted guest speakers from Brazil, Portugal, and Mozambique and have organized hands-on cultural events on campus for our students. In addition, the initiative has also had an impact both regionally and nationally in the field of Portuguese studies through the organization of panels in a regional conference in 2019 and the publication of a bilingual poetry collection featuring the work of Brazilian women writers in 2022.
