Brazilian Studies Programme
The Brazilian Studies Programme brings together scholars from around the University of Oxford who are teaching and researching on Brazilian topics. Four research clusters are associated with the programme: International Relations; Comparative Politics; Language and Culture; Environmental Studies
The Programme is an integral part of the Latin American Centre and is coordinated by a University Lecturer in Brazilian Studies.
Aims of the Programme
- To co-ordinate and develop postgraduate teaching and advanced research on Brazil across the social sciences and humanities within the University of Oxford.
- To bring scholars, intellectuals and policymakers from Brazil and elsewhere to Oxford, and to provide them with the environment in which to pursue the academic study of Brazil and international issues and problems with a Brazilian dimension.
- To promote a greater understanding of Brazil, its history, society, culture, politics, economy, ecology, and international relations through a programme of lectures, seminars, workshops and conferences, research projects, and publications.
- To extend and strengthen academic links between the University of Oxford and universities or research institutions in Brazil, and between the University of Oxford and other universities in the UK, Europe, the United States and elsewhere with centres or programmes of Brazilian studies.
