Brazil Week 2013

Brazil week2

25 February–1 March

Brazil Week aims to raise awareness about the richness and diversity of Brazilian culture by organising a number of free events open to students, academics and the general public. It celebrates the fact that there are so many academics and students at the University of Oxford who are working in and on Brazil (from areas as wide-ranging as Literature, Politics, Anthropology, Environmental Science, Linguistics and Ethnomusicology), and to bring them together. It also functions to introduce the culture and society of Brazil to those who are interested. It facilitates interaction between the University and the public – including the c4,000 Brazilians living in Oxford. Over the past three years, the event has attracted people from other universities, cities and even countries. Brazil Week is organised by members and students of the Sub-faculty of Portuguese.

There will be a week-long series of events at various venues to raise awareness about the richness and diversity of Brazilian culture. This year, highlights include a bossa nova concert celebrating the life and work of Vinicius de Morais and a short-film premiere plus Q&A via Skype with the director. All events are free, but registration is required: http://brazilweek.eventbrite.co.uk. For information: www.facebook.com/BrazilWeek.
