The history and legacies of the common cultural and language ties of Brazil, Portugal, and Lusophone Africa will be discussed and understood in our 21st century context, in coincidence with the International Day of Portuguese Language and Culture.

Africa & the Lusophone World

On the International Day of Portuguese Language and Culture, an occasion celebrated all across the Lusophone world, Canning House gathers together a panel of academics to explore the history and legacies of the common cultural and language ties of Brazil, Portugal and the countries of Lusophone Africa.

With this discussion we hope to achieve a renewed understanding of the Lusophone world for our 21st century context – acknowledging and overcoming colonial legacies, celebrating contemporary Lusophone culture and dispelling popular myths, and examining these nations’ economic and political ties of today.

This event will be presented on Zoom.
