Lecture: Literature and the Everyday (Re) Making of Brazil

March 7 @ 10:00 am - 10:50 am


This presentation introduces important Brazilian writers and the politics of their works in the everyday (re)making of Brazil. Although Brazil concentrates a large population of racialized people, it is still a country with high levels of inequalities. Due to that, there is a history of actions and movements, in Brazil, that has been addressing, in different ways, aspects concerning the country’s issues. Among many of these political actions for social justice, there is literature. That way, many writers, such as Black writers, produce a range of literary works that not only affect and modify discourses that sustain inequalities in Brazil, but also produce new and liberating discourses. Therefore, this presentation will introduce some of these writers and their works. In addition, this presentation will also briefly discuss the politics and impacts of such works.
