Favela Files: Popular Culture and Public Memory in Brazil
Dr. Bianca Brigidi, Social Sciences & Arts and Humanities Tutor (Ethnohistory)

While Brazil is known for its extreme social contrasts as well as for the celebration of its cultural diversity, little is said about the social museology taking place in the lands where Paulo Freire wrote his critical pedagogy and steps for concientização. This talk will introduce topics of education, agency, and reclaiming of social identities of minoritized populations in 20th century Brazil through an examination of popular culture and public memory.
