PROBRAL program to establish research and academic training project between Potsdam and Curitiba

Universidade Federal do Paraná

Universidade Federal do Paraná

The research and academic training project “Archivpelagos Literatur: deutschbrasilianische Inselwelten der Forschung” [Archi-ve-pelago Literature: German-Brazilian Island-Worlds of Research] was given a substantial grant by the Brazilian Ministry of Education (Program PROBRAL, Foundation CAPES) and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).

Starting Januar 2015, PhD candidates and postdoctoral researchers from the Universität Potsdam will jointly work with Brazilian colleagues from the Universidade Federal do Paraná (UFPR) on literary works, authors and intellectual discourses, which have shaped processes of cultural transfer and tranformation between Brazilian and German-speaking individuals and communities since the 19th century.

The joint project is scheduled to organize conferences and workshops in Potsdam (Germany) and Curitiba (Brazil) as well as team research in archives in Latin America and Europe.

The project is coordinated by Prof. Dr. Paulo Soethe (Department for Polish, German and Classical Philology, UFPR) and Prof. Dr. Ottmar Ette (Institute for Romance Philology, Universität Potsdam).
