Singularities and Differences among Latin American Carnivals

By Paulo Miguez
LAL Greenleaf Fellow, 2010-2011

A Work-in-progress talk by LAL Greenleaf Fellow Paulo Miguez on his research at the Latin American Library titled Singularities and Differences among Latin American Carnivals, a comparative study of the economics and cultural politics of carnival in Latin America. The project examines the ways in which the different carnival celebrations in Latin America are conceived from the perspective of public policy, with some reflections on carnival in New Orleans. The talk will be in Portuguese. Please join us for a reception after the talk.

This event is sponsored by the Richard E. Greenleaf Endowment at the Latin American Library.
