Brazilian Studies Research Group
Head: dr Renata Siuda-Ambroziak
The Brazilian Studies Research Group at the American Studies Center of the University of Warsaw was established with the endorsement of the Embassy of Brazil in Warsaw to create a forum for researchers from Poland and abroad dealing with broadly understood Brazilian Studies, including both humanities and social sciences. The focus of the research group is primarily on contemporary Brazil—its culture, society, politics and economy, as well as migration issues concerning the Polish presence in Brazil. The group’s research interests also include historical studies on Brazil and the Polish-Brazilian relations. The group welcomes anyone interested in Brazil who wants to deepen their knowledge of this country, participate in academic events devoted to it and in Brazil-oriented research projects. The group has its own meeting room at the OSA facilities, room 105, dedicated to Brazilian studies and sponsored the Embassy of Brazil in Warsaw. The group is affiliated with another one, Polish-Brazilian Research Group for Studies on the Polish Diaspora in Brazil, also headed by Dr. Siuda-Ambroziak. It was founded in January 2019 at the LEER Laboratory of the University of São Paulo in Brazil.
