Europe has a strong tradition of scholarship in Brazilian studies as well as of research generally and professional collaboration that is in some way connected to Brazil. The disciplines embraced extend from history, cultural studies, anthropology, linguistics, politics and economics to astronomy, biology, chemistry, architecture, among others.
This launch event of ABRE (Associação de Brasilianistas na Europa/Association of Brazilianists in Europe) aims to provide a transdisciplinary forum for academic exchange, dissemination and networking for scholars working in Brazilian studies or undertaking research/collaboration that has some connection with Brazil.
The conference will open in the afternoon of 30 May with an address by Prof.mr. Carel Stolker, Rector Magnificus of Leiden University and will include a keynote by Prof. Leslie Bethell (King’s College London/Instituto Getúlio Vargas).
