Wednesday, February 5, 2020

12:00pm – 1:30pm

Joukowsky Forum, 111 Thayer Street

In this lecture, Professor de Souza seeks to explore through ethnographic narratives, the multilayered nuances of a complex scenario in which while black culture is consumed and exported as “exotic” expressions of “Brazilianess”, while state and civil society support and sanction multiple forms of violence against black/impoverished bodies.
