Carnaval in Salvador and Rio de Janeiro

February 18th, 2011
3 p.m. - 4 p.m.

Location
Latin American Library Seminar Room, 4th Floor of Howard Tilton Memorial Library

An informal talk by Christopher Dunn (Spanish and Portuguese) and Paulo Miguez (LAL Greenleaf Fellow) on carnival in Rio de Janeiro and Salvador, Bahia, the two epicenters of carnival activity in Brazil. It was sparked by popular demand for those who want to learn more about carnival in Brazil as we enter into the thick of Mardi Gras season here in New Orleans with the Krewe du Vieux parade the following night.
The talk will be given primarily in English, will feature plenty of carnival images, and is targeted to a non-specialist audience. King cake will be served.
This event is sponsored by the Richard E. Greenleaf Endowment at the Latin American Library.
