Haddad Distinguished Lecture

To honor Claudio Haddad, the Chair of the Brazil Office Advisory Group since 2006, we will invite nominations each year from any member of the Harvard community for a distinguished speaker to deliver the “Haddad Lecture.” The goal of the lecture is to bring a high-profile speaker to Harvard to engage the Harvard community on issues of vital significance to Brazil. Nominees may be from Brazil but need not be.

  • Who may nominate?

The nominator must be a lecturer with multi-year appointment or an Assistant, Associate or full Professor employed full-time by Harvard University in any Harvard Department or School.  The Brazil Studies Program Manager will verify that applicants meet these criteria.

  • How to nominate?

Send your nomination along with a rationale for inviting this person by email to Tiago Genoveze (tiago_genoveze@harvard.edu) with the subject "Application to BSP Funding - Haddad Distinguished Lecture". Give some details about the benefits to the Harvard community of inviting this person, how long the visit would last, what kinds of interactions (if any) you would expect beyond the lecture. Maximum length: 1000 words.  

Maximum award: $10,000. Funds must be used by June 30, 2021. With adequate justification, the period of performance can be extended to accommodate proposals spanning multiple fiscal years. 

Deadline: March 8, 2020. 

Any materials produced in relation to the lecture must acknowledge the support of the Haddad Foundation, through the Haddad Distinguished Lecture Program of the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies as sponsors in all related materials.
