Pre-Texts for Portuguese Speaking Change Agents

Pre-Texts is a dynamic and engaging pedagogy for professional development that empowers change agents to build literacy, innovation, and citizenship in their communities. The 15-hour long course will be facilitated by Professor Doris Sommer, Professor at Harvard University, and Director of Cultural Agents, on February 2nd and 3rd, 2019, at Babson College, MA. This workshop is aimed at leaders representing Portuguese speaking countries, as well as those involved in facilitating social and community projects in the fields of Education, Culture, Health, and Social Entrepreneurship in Massachusetts.


This is the first step in a project of international dimensions, which already has the institutional support from the Consul General of Cape Verde, Mr. Hermínio Muniz, Senator Jamie Eldridge, and Deputy Antônio Cabral. Cultural Agents are also in contact with authorities from other Portuguese-speaking countries.


Using Pre-Texts as the tool for design and implementation, each workshop participant will have the opportunity to develop a community project. After the workshop, participants will have a three-month follow-up, in February, March and April 2019, with a two-hour meeting every week, under the guidance of a multidisciplinary team from Cultural Agents.


When:  February 2nd and 3rd, 2019 | 9am to 1pm / 2pm to 5:30 pm

Where: Babson College-231 Forest Street, Babson Park MA 02457- 0310.
