The Brazil in Perspective Series brings together Florida State University faculty and students who conduct research on Brazil in order to create a dialogue about the many facets of Brazil’s dynamic and evolving history. Through a series of bi-weekly lectures, this initiative aims to promote socially meaningful scholarship, investigate contemporary issues and problems that impact Brazil, and inspire global connections beyond the United States.
More speciﬁcally, Brazil in Perspective, operates as an interdisciplinary platform to explore Brazil from a myriad of perspectives ranging from ﬁlm and literature to architecture and politics. Exploring thought-provoking questions and pertinent issues of our time, this lecture series will consider topics such as environmental issues facing Amazônia, the image of the Brazilian home through art and architecture, and other forms of political and cultural expressions that are unique to Brazil.
Please join us in celebrating, supporting, and fostering the culture of Brazil. All sessions will be from 12:30 - 1:30 in G40 of the William Johnston Building
