Two-day symposium will examine Brazilian immigration to Georgia, U.S.

UGA and Georgia State University will host a two-day symposium that examines the phenomenon of Brazilian immigration to the U.S. with special focus on this community’s presence in Georgia.

“Brazilian Americans in Georgia and Beyond: A Multi-Disciplinary Symposium” will be held April 25-26 at the Georgia Center for Continuing Education Conference Center and Hotel. Registration is free, and the symposium is open to the general public, but spaces are limited. The deadline to register is April 21.

The purpose of the conference is to address immigration and serve as a springboard for further research and dialog among interested scholars, government officials and community and business leaders.

The symposium is made possible through the support of UGA’s Latin American and Caribbean Studies Institute, with additional support from GSU’s Center for Latin American and Latino/a Studies.
