    The archival researcher as detective
    Anthony Pereira

    Anthony W. Pereira is a Professor and Director of the Brazil Institute at King's College London. He obtained his BA from Sussex University (UK) in 1982 and his MA and PhD degrees from Harvard University in 1986 and 1991 respectively. Professor Pereira has recently published articles in Third World Quarterly, Latin American Perspectives, and the Bulletin of Latin American Research. Currently at work on a book about the Brazilian state, Professor Pereira is President of the Brazilian Studies Association (BRASA).

    This event will showcase the Library's collection of Latin American Political Pamphlets through some unique explorations: to do this, we asked give academics to investigate their own field using this collection as a primary source. Although they will cover specific topics and countries, the event will discuss the collection in more general terms, as well as present some of the documents themselves for the audience to look at. The conference is aimed at all levels of students and early career researchers with an interest in the political, social or economic contemporary history of Latin American and Caribbean countries.
