Painel da REBRAC no primeiro congresso da ABRE

 

Conforme decidido na última reunião geral da REBRAC, no contexto de seu segundo congresso internacional (Universidade de Queen’s, Belfast, 2016), a rede vai contribuir com painéis temáticos em congressos de associações afins. A primeira iniciativa neste sentido acontecerá em Leiden (Holanda), no congresso da nova associação de brasilianistas de Europa (ABRE).

Derek Pardue (Aarhus) e Sara Brandellero (Leiden) organizam o painel REBRAC em torno do tema ‘Revisiting Culture and Power in Brazil’:

We have witnessed change in Brazil at a rapid pace over the past months in a series of radical policy proposals across the spectrum, including education, social security, healthcare, foreign relations and culture. This seismic shift has left many Brazilians searching for some sort of footing from which to speak.

Recalling the influential writings of Michel Rolph-Trouillot and Edward Said on culture and historicity, we are reminded of the inseparable links between artistic expression and hegemonic formation. Narration can “silence the past” of Haitian revolutions as well as manufacture common sense regarding the European modern novel, respectively, for example. With Brazil’s current situation in mind, we propose this panel as a forum to reflect on what ‘culture’ offers in the way of empowerment and a medium through which Brazilians can speak, especially given the current evidence of a morally bankrupt state and broken institutions of government.
