The Making of Modern Brazil: Marginal Spaces, Race, and Urban Life
Professional Development Program Type
Professional Development Program Audience
How can we understand Brazil’s historical and contemporary inequalities and their relation to geographical, social, racial, and gender divides? How does this inform Brazil’s quest to be a global superpower? Over three weeks, this Institute will form an interdisciplinary intellectual community focused on learning and sharing ideas about contemporary Brazil. Through group discussion of scholarship, cinema, art, and other forms of expression, participants will work towards tangible outcomes — a syllabus or draft research project. Beyond expanding and deepening knowledge of Brazil, the Institute will prepare colleagues to develop new insights for interdisciplinary and transnational teaching.
