III Latin America Symposium: Power, Politics and Religion in Brazil - Ruptu...
Thu, 27 Apr 2017, 09:00 – Fri, 28 Apr 2017, 21:00 BST
A two-day workshop with leading anthropologists of Brazil, including paper presentations and discussion of Brazil’s current political context, and the intersection of politics with religious movements. Discussions of power and modes of governance are particularly pertinent at this moment in time, given Brazil’s current political crisis following Dilma Rousseff’s impeachment and the remarkable growth of Christian Evangelical politicians on the public stage. Papers will engage ethnography to look more closely at concepts of power and charisma, its flows, effects and changing forms in modern Brazil.
