From Hope to Hate: The Rise of Conservative Subjectivity in Brazil

Tuesday, February 12, 2019, 12:30PM - 1:30PM
Location:  206 Ingraham Hall
By: Rosana Pinheiro Machado. Anthropologist, scholar, and writer. Specialized in the informal and illegal economy, poverty, and modernity in Brazil and China.. Brazilians have recently elected a far-right president, Jair Bolsonaro, a former army captain.
The talk introduces the general panorama of Brazilian macro and micro politics from ‘Lula-ism’
to ‘Bolsonaro-ism’, marked respectively by the rise and fall of economic growth as well as by
democratic collapse. These changes in national development have also shaped the individual
self and the capacity to aspire to a better life, as well as ways of doing politics and
understanding the world.
