Transnational Constructions of Brazilian ‘blackness' in Time of Affirmative Action

My research project addresses the transnational links underlying the implementation of racial affirmative action (or positive discrimination) in favour of ‘black’ people in Brazil. I am interested in exploring the transnational nature of these measures in Salvador da Bahia, discussing the place that Africa, the Caribbean, the US and other regional contexts occupy in the local elaboration/implementation of black affirmative action measures and practices there. By using a typical approach of Social Anthropology, the project foresees ethnographic fieldwork in Salvador.
