As Brazil faces the deepest political crisis of its recent history, marked by the election of a neo-fascist president and exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic that has killed over 150,000 Brazilians, two webinars in Fall 2020 will bring together scholars and activists engaged in researching and resisting this complex political scenario: “Domestic Workers’ Resistance and the COVID-19 Pandemic in Brazil” on November 6 at 11 am, and “LGBTQ Resistance in Brazil: From the Military Dictatorship to the Current Reactionary Wave” on December 4 at 1 pm. This is a bilingual event (English-Portugese). Simultaneous translation will be provided.
