The starting point of project “Africa in Brazil and Brazil in Africa: New Horizons”  is the congregation of researchers from several departments of the University of São Paulo, whose lines of research range from anthropology, literature, social history and culture to economic history, but nonetheless focus on African studies. Headquartered at the NAP Brazil Africa, the project’s broadest purposes have to do with the positive effects of interdisciplinary practices relative to specific fields of knowledge, and to the enhancement of academic relations with Brazilian society. In addition to further contributing with USP’s tradition in African and Afro-Brazilian studies, the project is designed to renovate research possibilities and build knowledge based on an interdisciplinary dialogue and the interface between the disciplines involved.
