Welcome to the Library Resource Guide for HISTORY OF RIO DE JANEIRO
PB0160 (Portuguese and Brazilian Studies)
From colonial outpost to capital of the Portuguese Empire, from sleepy port to urban megalopolis, this seminar examines the history of Rio de Janeiro from the sixteenth century to the present. Using an interdisciplinary perspective rooted in historical analyses, we will analyze multiple representations of the city, its people, and geography in relationship to Brazilian history, culture, and society.
