ANTH 25
Race, Gender & Sexuality in Brazil Winter 2022

Cross-listed WGSS 25 / ANTH 25

Class Details

This Global Initiatives Venture Fund winter travel course is an extension of WGSS/ANTH 337 and introduces students to anthropological literature of Brazil as well as Brazilian novels and films. Its focus is on understanding the history, political economy, and contemporary culture of Brazil through attention to racial justice, including the country’s unique history and legacies of slavery in comparative context. It also examines questions of gender, including the history of feminism in Brazil and current debates related women’s equality such as Brazil’s abortion laws, domestic violence, sexual tourism, and job opportunities for women. Lastly, we also examine LGBT history in Brazil and dive into writing about queer culture there. That Fall seminar will include nearly three weeks in Rio de Janeiro during winter study and its surrounding environs, during which time students will visit important historical sites, museums, and relevant cultural attractions and meet with prominent journalists, academics, activists, as well as pursue their own projects. Students must have taken the Fall course to enroll in this winter study.
