Brazil Studies Program Seminar Series: The Necessity of Fiction in Today’s Brazil
Speaker: Beatriz Bracher, writer
Moderator: Frances Hagopian, Jorge Paulo Lemann Senior Lecturer on Government, Harvard University
In 2018, Brazil finds itself torn asunder, and inundated by the deafening roar of militancies and their drones. Under these conditions, it is necessary to reconstruct and protect a space for silence and doubt. A space where certainties might be betrayed: fiction.
This event is co-sponsored by the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures.
