The IX Oxbridge Conference on Brazilian Studies will take place online on October 19th, 21st, 26th, 28th and 29th, 2021.

The Oxbridge Conference on Brazilian Studies had its successful debut in 2012, and has been organised every year by the Cambridge University and Oxford University Brazilian Societies (CUBS and OUBS) since then. 

It is a multi-disciplinary event that brings together scholars from natural sciences, social sciences, humanities and arts to discuss topics concerning Brazil. It is organised by both Cambridge University and Oxford University Brazilian Societies and counts with an increasing number of researchers from the UK and beyond.

This year the event will discuss the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic in five thematic panels: (i) Health & Science, (ii) Society and Economy, (iii) Politics and Policies, (iv) Environment, and (v) Education.

The event and submissions will be online and free of charge.  We encourage the submission of abstracts related to current affairs relevant to Brazil (preference will be given to COVID-19 pandemic-related research due to the thematic of the conference). Go to Eventbrite and register to attend the Conference.
