Project Description 

The Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS) and the European Studies Center (ESC) at the University of Pittsburgh are jointly working on developing a Program in Luso-Sphere Studies. For students who wish to pursue a career or research with an international dimension, or in the Luso-Sphere specifically, studying this history and the cross-regional relationships that now exist in the Portuguese-speaking world would provide multiple opportunities. Such a program would be among the first of its kind in the US and could become a central location for the study of Portuguese language and the Luso-Sphere cultures.
