Brazil, Race, Sex, and the Body


The approach of the course will be interdisciplinary, drawing upon works from anthropology, literature, history, and film. Topics will include colonialism and enslavement, abolition, nationalism, social activism, and popular culture. We will also consider how Brazilian social relations differ from or conform to other racialized patterns in other nation-states in the Americas. Particular attention will be placed on the impact of the interrelationship between race, gender, class, and nation on the lives of Black Brazilians.
