Modern and Contemporary Brazil

The working group is an effort to interpret Brazilian aesthetics of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries with a global perspective, turning away from an essentialist framing and encompassing the complexities, crossings, and relations that compose and modify the Brazilian sociocultural landscape. The group discussions will be oriented towards five axes: transmedia, transborder, transdisciplinary, translingual, transaction. We are interested in the diversity of Brazilian aesthetic/artistic production. Our group meets online twice a month.
