A three-week seminar for higher education faculty on race and place in contemporary Brazilian history and culture.

This seminar will introduce scholars to the social, racial and cultural diversity of Brazil. We will discuss the aftermath of colonization and slavery in the Americas, the emergence of racial ideologies and contrasting images of urban and rural spaces. Through an exploration of scholarly sources like films, music, ethnographic texts, fiction and historical images and documents, we will examine topics such as modernity, racial politics, and urban spaces, along with social and cultural marginality, gender, class, and ethnicity. Participants will learn to include Brazil in their own courses and research by producing a module/syllabus or draft research project reflecting the themes and issues discussed. Beyond expanding and deepening the scholars' knowledge and understanding of Brazil, the seminar will enable colleagues to develop new insights for interdisciplinary teaching extending beyond Latin America, as many themes are applicable to developing areas of the world and the United States.
