HIST 564 George Reid Andrews, Blacks and Whites in Sao Paulo, Brazil 1888-1988
1. What does Andrews mean when he talks about Van den Berges distinction
between paternalist and competitive race relations and
how does this distinction apply to Andrews analysis?
2. How do the concerns of Brazils late 19th and early 20th century elite
resonate with Holts conception of the problem of freedom?
3. How does the process of abolition in Brazil compare to that of other regions
weve examined (US, Cuba, Jamaica)?
4. How did Brazils ideological and policy approaches to issues of race-- racial democracy, whitening, ideologia da vadiagem-- affect the politics and culture of race relations in early 20th century Brazil?
