Brasa Program 2016 Brown U

Professor Shelley Rice will be lecturing at the 2016 BRASA (The Association of Brazilian Studies, an international and interdisciplinary group of academics researching Brazilian culture and its global influence) Conference, which is being held at Brown University in Rhode Island from March 31 to April. Her talk on Marc Ferrez, the major studio photographer in Rio de Janeiro during the latter part of the 19th century, is part of a Special Session at the conference, which will complement an exhibition at Brown’s Watson Institute for International Studies and Public Policy. Called “From Nature to City: One Century of Rio de Janeiro Seen by Marc Ferrez and Robert Polidori,” the panel (consisting of Rice, Ana Luiza Nobre from the Instituto Moreira Salles in Sao Paulo and Alex Alberro from Columbia University) is also serving as a book launch for the two Steidl books celebrating the 450th anniversary of that city. (Professor Rice wrote the central essay for the Ferrez monograph, entitled Marc Ferrez: Rio.)
