Brazilians Modernisms Society

The mission of this group is to read contemporary texts that engage with current issues on Brazilian culture, literature, and society; bridging disciplines such as literature, anthropology, urban studies, architecture, law, and visual studies. From the auto-ethnography of the Yanomami shaman Davi Kopenawa, to the wave of protests of 2013, to literary works from the peripheries of São Paulo and the favelas of Rio and the environmental issues on the Amazon rainforest. Our group’s idea is to focus on recent debates that work on a critical displacement of fixed categories—such as subject and object, margin and center, territory and state—by trying to develop new ways of reading the interplay between aesthetic, political, and social discourses
