“Nabuco Awards Luncheon and Presentations”
October 15, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
The International Division, in collaboration with the Latin American, Caribbean and Iberian Studies Program, sponsors the Joaquim Nabuco Award, given annually to the two best essays on Brazil (any field) by a degree-seeking University of Wisconsin-Madison student.
The winners are strongly encouraged to use the award for a research trip to Brazil. Applicants must agree to present their paper in person during the Fall semester following the receipt of the award and must make every effort to be introduced by their faculty/thesis advisor.
Please join us for a catered luncheon (offered on a first-come, first served basis) while Carlos and Logan provide an overview of the papers they submitted and their travels to Brazil.
Our 2019 awardees are:
Logan Allen Krishka (Undergraduate Recipient): “Desire, Disdain, Dependency: Constructing Vulnerability in Caio Fernando Abreu”
Carlos Andrés Rojas (Graduate Recipient): “Feminicídios no Brasil: Contexto Social e a Necessidade de Educar para Prevenir”
