Purpose of center:
The Camões Institute Center for Portuguese Language and Culture, directed by the resident IC Leitor, is open to the Rutgers community of faculty and students as well as to the general public. In addition to housing over 2000 volumes of Portuguese literature, history, criticism and other scholarly publications, the Camões Institute has also provided the Center with a wealth of multi-media material such as DVDs, CD-ROMs and video Cassettes featuring the work of Portugal's most prominent artists, filmmakers and scholars. The Center will be outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment for on-site consultation of the multi-media collection. Finally, the Center will also act as the exclusive home for the Ironbound Oral History Project Archive. This archive will contain audio recordings and written transcripts from over 100 oral histories conducted by Rutgers-Newark students-a project that focuses on the life histories of Portuguese and Brazilian immigrants in Northern New Jersey.
