SLAVERY, FREEDOM, SUSTAINABILITY, AND PANDEMIC: DEBATES ON BRAZILIAN AND AFRICAN SOCIETIES IN HISTORICAL AND CONTEMPORARY PERSPECTIVE
Roberto Hofmeister Pich (Organizer)
The conference of the Brazilian Humboldt-Club, in November 16-19, 2021, in the city of Porto Alegre / RS, Brazil, with the title / theme “Slavery, Freedom, Sustainability, and Pandemic: Debates on Brazilian and African Societies in Historical and Contemporary Perspective”, has the intention of approximating Humboldt Fellows from Latin America (especially from Brazil) and Africa, focusing on topics that historically connect the two continents and, in several aspects, also shape Latin American and African societies in current times. Until today, Brazilian and African Humboldt fellows do not frequently work in well-established and well-structured ways. The proposed conference is an opportunity to get acquaintance with current research conducted by Humboldtians from both continents and to conceive common projects for the years to come.
