AAAS 86.04 There Won't Be a World Cup: Social Shifts in Contemporary Brazil

This class will be offered on campus, in English, and will explore social, political, and economic issues in contemporary Brazil. Since 2013, the climate in Brazilian society has become more and more tense due to a series of street protests and polarized public debates on race, class, political representation, democracy, religion, gender, sexuality, environmental protection and economic justice. Brazilian present scenario will be discussed in relation to historical and cultural contexts. Materials for the course will include films, documentaries, music, and a wide variety of readings (mainstream media, blogs, academic essays, official documents, fiction). Invited guests (scholars, activists, journalists, artists) will deliver lectures, in presential or remote way.
