This course is designed as an interdisciplinary exploration of Brazil. Brazil’s turbulent political history and contemporary struggles with violence, economic disparity, and inclusion have become cultural currency producing some of the most globally recognizable cultural production—particularly cinema and music. Students will survey different types of scholarship on Brazil--journalism, social sciences, music, TV & film, and cultural theory--to understand the relationship between Brazilian society and culture.
