COURSE ON JOSÉ SARAMAGO FOR TEACHERS OF PORTUGUESE (AZORES): INCLUDES MY ORWELL/SARAMAGO ARTICLE

I am pleased to note that my article:

 

     ‘How totalitarianism begins at home: Saramago and George Orwell’, in In Dialogue with Saramago: Essays in Comparative Literature, eds. Mark Sabine and Adriana Alves de Paula Martins, Manchester: University of Manchester, 2006, pp. 105-120; http://yatrarollason.info/files/SaramagoandOrwell.pdf

(see this blog, entries: 25-4, 30-5 and 26-7 2006)

 

has been included in the reading list for the course ‘Descobrir Saramago’ (‘Discovering Saramago’), to be offered from 2 to 6 November 2009 to secondary school teachers of Portuguese and organised by the Centro de Formação da Associação de Escolas de São Miguel e Santa Maria (Azores, Portugal) – see programme at:

(organiser: Clarisse Ribeiro Medeiros).

 

The aim of the course is to increase teachers’ knowledge and understanding of the work of Portugal’s most distinguished living writer. I am more than honoured to have this study of mine included on it.
