On September 23rd and 24th 2022, the ‘Brazil at 100 / 200’ conference will celebrate Brazil’s bicentenary and explore how memory and culture shape the meaning of independence today. By integrating a reflection on the twin centenaries of independence and the São Paulo Modern Art Week, this hybrid conference will reflect on ideas about Brazilian identity that inspired the modernists one hundred years ago and continue to provoke today. It will take place via Zoom and will also feature in-person components at Yale University and at the Braudel Institute in São Paulo.
The conference is co-hosted by the Council on Latin American and Iberian Studies at the MacMillan Center and the Office of International Affairs at Yale, along with the Braudel Institute and the Fundação Getulio Vargas in Rio de Janeiro.
