The Brazil Center at UT Austin will celebrate 20 years in 2015! Read the message below from Carla Silva-Muhammad, the Center’s coordinator, to learn more about their exciting upcoming events, field research opportunities, and grants.
Please accept our warmest welcome to the Brazil Center of the Teresa Lozano Long Institute of Latin American Studies and Benson Collections (LLILAS Benson) at the University of Texas at Austin.
The Brazil Center was established in 1995, following twenty-five years of work by the institute’s Brazilian Studies Committee to diversify and expand interdisciplinary studies of Brazil on the University of Texas at Austin campus and to increase the number of faculty specializing in Brazil.
The Brazil Center will, thus, celebrate 20 great years in 2015! Keep in touch to receive updates on our upcoming celebratory events in the Spring semester!
Currently, there are 48 Brazilianists, i.e., professors who devote most of their classes and research to Brazil, among 230 Latin Americanists at the University of Texas. This substantial number of scholars, combined with the distinguished Benson Collections, attracts researchers and students from diverse fields (and from around the world) like YOU.
Come see us today to learn more about the Brazil Center and the field research opportunities and grants we offer to students working on Brazil. You can also visit us online to find out more about our upcoming lectures and events.
We hope you can join us soon!
