Harvard professors' interests and priorities guide the work of the DRCLAS Brazil Studies Program. We serve as a catalyst for research and teaching collaborations identified by or of interest to the University's faculty. A cross-disciplinary Faculty Advisory Committee helps identify new opportunities and keeps us up-to-date on existing projects. Since the founding of the Brazil Studies Program and Brazil Office in 2006, nearly 150 faculty members from 10 Harvard Schools have travelled to Brazil. Over the same period, the flow of Brazilian professors to Cambridge and Boston has increased sharply.
At Harvard: The selection of topics and speakers for Brazil Studies Program events and seminar series is determined by our Faculty Chair, in coordination with Harvard professors from across Schools, departments and disciplines. If you are a Harvard professor interested in learning more about faculty resources in Cambridge/Boston, please contact Aaron Litvin, +1 (617) 495-5435.
In Brazil: Faculty services offered by the Brazil Office in São Paulo include office space for Harvard faculty, assistance in organizing substantive visits throughout Brazil that combine individual research meetings, fieldwork contacts, small group discussions and/or open events. If you are a Harvard professor interested in learning more about faculty resources in Brazil, please contact Jason Dyett, +55 (11) 3549-9591.
