      October 7, 2009 – Dartmouth, MA. The University of Massachusetts
      Dartmouth Center for Portuguese Studies and Culture is pleased to host
      the international conference “Gender, Empire and Postcolony:
      Intersections in Luso-Afro-Brazilian Studies” on Friday, 9 October
      through Sunday, 11 October 2009. The principal objective of the
      conference, co-organized by Anna M. Klobucka (UMD) and Hilary Owen (U of
      Manchester), is to create a transdisciplinary forum for an in-depth
      discussion of the interarticulation of gender theories and postcolonial
      studies in relation to Portuguese, Brazilian and Lusophone African
      cultural contexts. The program features nearly forty presenters from
      Portugal, Brazil, Spain, Italy, United States, and United Kingdom, whose
      scholarly interests focus on developing critical and theoretical
      perspectives in the areas of postcolonialism and gender studies, with
      specific, localized reference to Portuguese-speaking countries. The
      disciplinary fields represented on the program include literary and
      cultural studies, history, film studies, anthropology, and art history.
