Event description
Join Rosana Pinheiro-Machado (University of Bath) for the launch of her book, as part of Brazil Week 2020.

About this Event

Abstract: Since the great social movements of 2013, most Brazilians have only one question: what is happening with the country?

Many people are uncertain about the future because of the profound transformations that Brazil has undergone in recent years. 'Amanhã vai ser maior' by professor, anthropologist and columnist Rosana Pinheiro-Machado has two goals.

First, shed light on this period of crisis by bringing an analysis of the political and social scenario from the 'Journeys of June' to the election of Jair Bolsonaro, without academic jargon.

Second, point out the outlines that loom on the horizon – and show that we are already building possibilities to resist in dark times.
