Call for Papers: Dossier Culture and Politics in Brazil: a decade under review (2011-2020)

2020-05-28

Brasiliana: Journal for Brazilian Studies is pleased to announce this call for papers for a dossier to be published in August 2021 on the relationship between culture and politics in Brazil over the past decade (2011-2020). The period between 2011 and 2020 was marked by a number of milestone political events, such as Dilma Rousseff’s two-term administration – including the June 2013 protests and the 2016 presidential impeachment –, Michel Temer’s transitional administration, and the election of Jair Bolsonaro. Adopting an interdisciplinary approach, this special issue intends to critically examine the way that relationships between culture and politics have been articulated in Brazil in connection with major national and/or global events over the past decade. The editors welcome submissions analysing such relationships within the interdisciplinary field of Brazilian studies, which is the focus of this academic journal.

CALL FOR PAPERS: Dossier on “Afro-Brazilian Studies”

2019-04-17

BrasilianaJournal for Brazilian Studies will be publishing an issue in late 2019 foregrounding recent scholarship on Afro-Brazilian studies in a multi-disciplinary dossier. Following recent international initiatives such as the United Nations declaring the “Decade for People of African Descent” (2015-2024), this dossier seeks to bring together contributions and reflections on the theme in Brazil and beyond, fostering dialogues with the international scene, especially those referring to the broader connection with the African diaspora. 

The Journal is currently accepting articles on the various aspects of this field from the perspective of a wide range of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences which have engaged with this topic (anthropology, sociology, law, history, economics, linguistics, literature, music, cinema, visual arts). Brasiliana also welcomes interdisciplinary approaches and those that take on themes relating to public policies, participation, action , and the Afro-Brazilian struggle and experience. 

This issue will be the first edited by Dr Felipe Botelho Correa (King's College London), who is stepping in as the new Editor-in-Chief of the Journal. 

The editorial team would like to thank Dr Vinicius Mariano de Carvalho for all his work in creating and editing this journal!

 

Articles should be submitted online before 30 June 2019. Articles may be submitted after this date, but might not be included in the dossier on Afro-Brazilian Studies.
