This website’s section entitled Blackboard reunites a selected number of my students’ reviews, essays, and articles produced for my classes on literature, film, diaspora, Luso-afro-Brazilian culture, new media, and politics taught at Ryerson University, the University of Toronto, Simon Fraser University, and the University of British Columbia. Blackboard aims to provide a dynamic environment for students to publish their writings as well as to provide resources as archives for researchers in politics, film, philosophy, literature, culture and the arts. All students invited to publish here were very enthusiastic with the opportunity to share their work and all of them have authorized the publication of their texts.
