Barbara Weinstein, professor of history at New York University, will present a lecture and workshop April 26-27 at the UI.
Weinstein will present a Charles A. Hale Memorial Lecture in Latin American Studies on "Race, Gender, and Brazilian Regional Conflict: the War of São Paulo, 1932" Thursday, April 26, from 3:30-5:30 p.m. in UCC 1117. This lecture is free and open to the public.
On Friday, April 27, Weinstein will hold a Charles A. Hale Memorial Workshop for faculty and graduate students from 12:00-1:30 p.m. in 315 Phillips Hall. She will discuss her new manuscript, "The Color of Modernity: São Paulo and the Making of Race and Nation in Brazil."
Weinstein's research explores questions of labor, gender, race, and political economy in postcolonial Latin America, particularly Brazil. Her work-in-progress, The Color of Modernity, illuminates the processes by which modernity in Brazil became racialized and identified with whiteness, even as elites proclaimed their nation to be a racial democracy.
These events are sponsored by International Programs, the Latin American Studies Program, and the Department of History in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
