Born in Lisbon on November 2, 1919, poet and leading intellectual Jorge de Sena, was a professor in our Department of Spanish and Portuguese, at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and as such, he was instrumental to the diffusion of Portuguese and Brazilian literatures in the United States.
The Lusophone World Club would like to extend a warm welcome to our first meeting of the year. Our discussion and activities will center around a recent international hot topic: the Amazon rainforest. Accommodating all levels of speakers, conversation will be accompanied by a trivia session. Come meet fellow lusophone enthusiasts on campus, as well as members of the program, and indulge in a few beijinhos and brigadeiros—some of the best Brazilian confectionaries. All are welcome. We look forward to seeing you there!
