Africa in Brazil and Brazil in Africa: New Horizons

Event Organiser: University of São Paulo.

Date: November 13, 2017

‘Africa in Brazil and Brazil in Africa: New Horizons’ is the congregation of researchers from several departments of the University of São Paulo. In addition to further contributing with USP’s tradition in African and Afro-Brazilian studies, the project is designed to renovate research possibilities and build knowledge based on an interdisciplinary dialogue and the interface between the disciplines involved.

It is organized based on specific actions, methodologies and topics regarding issues on the history of African societies and the processes experienced by such societies in the relationships maintained with Europe. It is also aimed at understanding the establishment of national states, nationalist movements and circulation of ideas given the participation of the African elites in said processes during the African decolonization period.
