Event Notes

Did you know that more than fifty thousand Brazilians currently live and work in Georgia? Despite its rapid growth, very little attention has been given to this community. The aim of this symposium is to shed light upon the dynamic presence of Brazilian-Americans, both in Georgia and across the US, and to provide a forum for this community's voice to be heard. Bringing together scholars, artists, community leaders, and government representatives, this two day collaborative event (between UGA and GSU) is comprised of 5 panels, 2 keynote talks, a film screening, book readings, Brazilian music, and the participation of Adalnio Senna Ganem, the new Brazilian Consul General in Atlanta.
