Brazil Brown Bag Seminar Series – The Black Movement and its Impact on Education: The History Curriculum in Multicultural Contexts

April 14, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join the Lemann Center for Brazilian Studies in its Brazil Brown Bag Seminar Series. The lecture, entitled “The Black Movement and its Impact on Education: The History Curriculum in Multicultural Contexts” will be given by Amílcar Pereira.

This presentation emerges from the analysis of race relations in the black diaspora, and the teaching of Afro-Brazilian history in Brazilian educational institutions. In order to debate on this possibility of combining history and education beyond the Brazilian context, including other multicultural milieus, the lecture will also discuss the United States context, specifically the city of New York, one of the most populous, and racially and culturally diverse cities in the world.

Amílcar Pereira is an Associate Professor at the School of Education at the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ). He holds a PhD in History, authored the book “O mundo negro: relações raciais e a constituição do movimento negro no Brasil” (2013) and was the co-editor of “Histórias do Movimento Negro no Brasil” (with Verena Alberti, 2007), “Ensino de História e Culturas Afro-Brasileiras e Indígenas” (with Ana Maria Monteiro, 2013) and “Educação e Diversidade em Diferentes Contextos” (with Warley da Costa, 2015).
