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.

Vol 9 No 1 (2020): Beyond the Hard News: Periodical Print Culture in Brazil

Continuing its role as a platform for the interdisciplinary field of Brazilian studies, this issue of Brasiliana brings together over 30 texts divided into four sections. Drawing on analyses of newspapers and magazines, the articles gathered in the dossier ‘Beyond the Hard News: Periodical Print Culture in Brazil' form a kaleidoscope of themes that go from the fin de siecle to the end of the 20th century. The authors are scholars who approach the periodical print culture in Brazil from the point of view of history, literature, politics, society and culture in general, using various methodologies. The articles focus on both the content of the printed material (texts and images) as well as journalists, editors and readerships. They also present the press as a business capable of influencing the publishing market, focusing on behavioural aspects and revealing the circulatory dynamics of the periodical print culture in Brazil. The issue also includes a selection of articles relevant to Brazilian studies (General), as well as creative texts (Varia) and book reviews.
