Problemas Brasileiros (PB) is a magazine focused on broad debate about Brazil, reflecting specifically on Brazilian society, economy, politics and culture. Releasing over 450 editions during its 57 year history, PB now produces a bi-monthly printed edition as well as a monthly digital edition.
A new partnership between the magazine and the King’s Brazil Institute (KBI) sees the Institute’s staff and PhD students contributing to both the printed and digital editions. The first of these contributions, an article written by Director of the Brazil Institute Dr Vinicius De Carvalho, focuses on the issue of decolonizing the curricula.
King’s College London has engaged on the debate about decolonizing curricula in a very systemic way. King’s Brazil Institute has a relevant role to play in this debate. This first article for Problemas Brasileiros highlights just how much a consistent and transformative approach is necessary in order to promote the dialogue with the plurality of epistemologies that originated in Brazil– Dr Vinicius De Carvalho
To mark the beginning of the partnership Dr De Carvalho was also interviewed by Canal UM BRASIL, discussing several topical Brazilian issues and the role the KBI hopes to play in Brazilian and wider Latin American scholarship going forward.
Problemas Brasileiros is well known for publishing articles and interviews with scholars, politicians, intellectuals and businesspeople, discussing issues in the areas of education, public security, health, culture and sport, sustainability and innovation. It is hoped that this mutually beneficial partnership will promote the ideas and research developed by staff and PhD students from KBI to a broader audience in Brazil, and consequently contribute to the analyses and debate on Brazilian issues.
