Afro-Brazilian Culture and History


This course will consist of a two-week educational Study Trip that combines formal lectures by local scholars with visits to local cultural and historical institutions as well as travel within Brazil, the host Latin American country. In Salvador, studens will explore some of the contemporary advances and challenges of the people of Bahia. The in-country portion of this course will serve as the second half of our introduction to Brazil which is offered during spring semester. This program is specifically designed for students of any major who are interested in learning about the global significance of Brazil. There will also be opportunities for students to collaborate, and interact with Brazilian university students tand professors for cross-cultural exchange and activities.
