About King’s Brazil Institute

King’s College London has pioneered the study of Brazilian culture and history as a concentrated subject area since the Brazil Institute was founded in 2008. 

The Institute aims to foster research, teaching and events on and with Brazil throughout and outside of the university. The Institute coordinates and develops Brazil-related research capabilities and Brazil-focused programmes of study at King's, while also building links with Brazilian organisations in education, the cultural and creative sectors, business and government.

The defining characteristic of King's Brazil Institute is its blend of internationalism and interdisciplinarity.

Our objectives are: 

  • To serve as the intellectual locus for teaching and research pertaining to Brazil.
  • To foster cooperation in the study of and research on Brazil with other academic and cultural institutions.
  • To raise the profile of Brazil in the UK and around the world through events and publications in English.
