Engaging in racial studies research in Bahia offers a profound examination of Afro-Brazilian heritage, identity, and social dynamics within one of the country’s most culturally vibrant and historically significant regions. Universidade Federal da Bahia’s (UFBA) interests are in Racial Studies, focusing on Ethnic and Racial Studies with interests in Slavery and Slave Resistance in the African Diaspora; Racial, Ethnic, and Gender Inequality in Income, Education, Health, and Housing; Structural Racism in Contemporary Society; Cultural and Artistic Diversity among Ethnic and Racial Groups; and African Societies from the Slave Trade Era to Contemporary Globalization.

The scholar will develop research and have the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues at Universidade de Brasilia (UnB), Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (UFMG), Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina (UFSC) and Universidade Federal do Pará (UFPA). The four universities constitute the Fulbright Interdisciplinary Network (FIN) along with UFBA.

FIN is an initiative by the U.S. Embassy and the Fulbright Commission in Brazil to promote joint studies of the United States among Brazilian and U.S. academics and researchers.

If you are a Brazilian scholar who would like to host a U.S. colleague in your institution, feel free to direct your questions to the Fulbright Commission.
