4th Annual Brazil Week

The Music From Brazil

The purpose of the Fourth Brazil Week at Harvard is to bring together scholars, leaders, members of the local community, and Harvard’s students to discuss the richness and variety of Brazilian music. In addition to showcasing, examining, and celebrating the international character and appeal of Brazil 's song and dance music, we will explore lesser-known genres such as Brazilian classical music, aboio (Brazilian cowboys’ plaintive singing), and Brazilian Tropicalism.

Another important purpose of this event is to strengthen relations among the Brazil program at DRCLAS, the Harvard Brazilian Students Organization, and DRCLAS Student Advisory Board. To accomplish this goal, we are involving these different organizations in the conceptualization, planning, and implementation of Brazil Week.

2nd Annual Brazil Week

Access to Land in Brazil

The initial idea for proposing this topic came up during the documentary film series we organized at DRCLAS last spring (2003). During the whole semester, a public ranging from 10 to 15 people (students, Harvard faculty members, and general public) attended the screening of Brazilian documentaries. However, to our surprise, more than 40 people showed up for the screening of Raiz forte, a documentary about the landless movement in Brazil. A long and stimulating discussion followed the screening. At the end of the event, it was clear that among those interested or working about Brazil, the issue of access to land was a priority. Therefore, we decided that it would be opportune that we continued to promote the debate on this issue.
