By LACSI on March 4, 2015 in Lectures and Presentations

On February 27, 2015, Dr. Richard Gordon, Director of the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Institute (University of Georgia), discussed his new book Cinema, Slavery, and Brazilian Nationalism (University of Texas Press) in a conversation with Dr. Leslie Marsh (Georgia State University), author of Brazilian Women’s Filmmaking: From Dictatorship to Democracy (University of Illinois Press). Facilitated by Dr. Rielle Navitski, Assistant Professor in the Department of Theater and Film Studies (University of Georgia),their dialogue focused on how Brazilian film has engaged with questions of race and gender, helping to forge national communities but also highlighting the historical exclusion of women and Afro-Brazilians from full social and political participation.
