Complete Description:
62nd Annual Conference of the UF Center for Latin American Studies in association with Centro de Pesquisas e Documentação de História Contemporânea do Brasil, Fundação Getúlio Vargas.

Brazil has drawn the interest of academics for decades. However, Brazil’s recent emergence as a global player in international economic and political affairs and as a significant influence in other areas (culture, the environment, urban studies, democratic transition, etc.) suggests the reasons for our 62nd annual conference.

There are eight panels, with twenty-four speakers coming from the worlds of academia, business, policy, and public affairs. Topics range from agriculture and Amazonia through contemporary and international politics and culture to religion, urban studies and environmental policy.


Admission:
