Proceedings of the Vanderbilt Invitational Conference on High School Portuguese. Final Report.
Andrews, Norwood, Jr., Ed.
This Conference was sponsored by the U.S. Office of Education, the Gulbenkian Foundation, Inc., United Merchants and Manufacturers, The Hispanic Society of America, Phi Lambda Beta (the Portuguese National Honor Fraternity), and Vanderbilt University. Individual participants from specified regional nuclei of interest met for introductory plenary sessions, during which the importance of Portuguese, the need for more people trained in it, and its interdisciplinary relevance were discussed in the national context by a series of distinguished specialists. The "national" group then separated into its constituent nuclei of interest (regional groups) for the seminars described in these transcripts, which are presented here in dialog form (with the exception of two in narrative form). They represent the discussion of the following groups: (1) District of Columbia, Virginia, New Jersey, Pennsylvania; (2) Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee; (3) California, Oregon; (4) Texas, Louisiana; (5) Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska; (6) Massachusetts; (7) Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin; (8) Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, Arizona; (9) New York; and (10) Rhode Island, Connecticut. A list of supplementary materials in Portuguese prefaces, and an index concludes the text transcriptions. (AMM)
