This colloquium intends to offer an analysis of the rise of and impact of late 20th century and early 21st century social movements within the lusophone world. Concurrently, the colloquium will also study the civic engagement of luso-descendents throughout the Portuguese diaspora. In order to reach these goals, the Center has organized panels and roundtable discussions that bring together not only scholars from divergent academic fields, but also contemporary lusophone writers who use the power of wri"en word to promote political and social change in the world.
