This 6-week summer program, sponsored by the Stone Center for Latin American Studies at Tulane, caters to graduate and undergraduate students who wish to achieve a high level of Portuguese fluency through immersion in Brazilian language and culture. With language classes at the intermediate and advanced levels, it allows students to study with experienced faculty while living with local families or college students in the Sao Paulo neighborhood of Perdizes. Each participant enrolls in two Tulane credit-bearing courses organized by our partner institution CET.

The Mayan Language Institute is a 6-week program to train students in either Kaqchikel or K’iche’ Maya, two of the most widely-spoken Mayan languages in Iximulew (Guatemala) today. Thanks to the collaboration between U.S. American faculty and Maya teachers, participants can study at the beginning, intermediate, or advanced levels of either language. The program’s highly individualized classes combine language immersion activities, lectures, one-on-one conversations, guest speakers and cultural excursions.

Tulane Community—please join the Portuguese department in the Greenleaf Conference Room (Jones Hall) for the PORTfolio Conference! January 27th at11 AM.

Informal workers make up over two billion workers or about 50% of the global workforce, yet, surprisingly, scholars know little about these workers’ political or civil society participation. For decades, researchers argued that informal workers rarely organized or participated in civil society and politics. However, millions of informal workers around the world start and join unions. This raises a related question: Why do informal workers organize in some places more than others?
