The 2015-2016 academic year at Kennesaw State University is the Year of the Portuguese Speaking World. The university will host a series of events, speakers, conferences, and cultural activities throughout the year designed to promote a deeper appreciation for and understanding of the Portuguese speaking world.
Comprised of nine countries on four continents - Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, East Timor, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Portugal, and São Tomé and Príncipe - the Portuguese Speaking World is a diverse region, with each country possessing a unique history, economy, political structure, and culture.
As in previous years, the university has teamed up with key international and domestic partners to organize events that provide attendees with unique, fascinating insights about real life in the region. For example, for the Year of the Portuguese Speaking World, KSU is working closely with the Community of Portuguese Language Countries.
Be sure to visit this site regularly to learn more about upcoming events, classes, and conferences, and, of course, to learn more about the Portuguese speaking world.
