It’s one thing to try and remember many different dates from the past – but how about learning about the history of a country through looking at art?

Two of our lecturers, Ana Bela Almeida and Ana Reimao, explain how their students learn about the history and politics of Portuguese-speaking countries, through the work of Portuguese artist, Paula Rego.

They also give us the lowdown on their class's exclusive visit behind the scenes at Liverpool's Walker Art Gallery.
