With the “Hear, Here” series, we aim to facilitate conversations around new research in the humanities. Faculty fellows at the Institute for the Humanities will discuss a part of their current project in a short talk followed by a Q & A session. Today: "New World Italians: The Invention of a Brazilian Identity" with Giulia Riccò.

About this talk:
When and where did Italians first begin to understand themselves as white? This talk suggests that the answer to such a question lies in an unlikely place: São Paulo, Brazil at the turn of the 20th century, which became home to the largest concentration of Italians outside of Italy.

About Giulia Riccò:
Giulia Riccò is a 2022-23 John Rich Faculty Fellow at the Institute for the Humanities and assistant professor, Romance languages and literatures.
