Book Launch: 'Urban Encounters: Affirmative Action and Black Identities in Brazil'

Start: Apr 22, 2013 5:30:00 PM
End: Apr 22, 2013 7:30:00 PM

UCL - Institute of the Americas proudly hosts the launch of this book by Dr Andre Cicalo, with the participation of Prof Denise Ferreira da Silva (Queen Mary) and Dr David Lehmann (Cambridge) as discussants.

University racial quotas have caused strong reactions in Brazil, where ideals of racial and cultural mixture are crucial components of national identity. Focusing on an in-depth ethnographic study of a Rio de Janeiro public university and its students, André Cicalo examines in this book the practical and symbolic potential that affirmative action has to redress historically-produced and territorialized inequalities in the urban space. By engaging with the relevant literature on Brazilian race relations, Cicalo also reflects on different readings of race relations, affirmative action, and racial classification in Brazil.
