Description: 

Talk by Dr. G. Reginald Daniel, Professor of Portuguese and Brzilian studies at UCLA. Dr. Daniel begins by explaining the origin of the Harlequin as a poetic description of racial identity in Brazil, with each item of costum representing a group. He goes on to trace the suppression of African identity, and the glorification of Native identity, which created a complex heirarchy. The paradox of Brazil, Daniel concludes, is the romanticism of Native Americans while failing to embrace cultural plurality. A question and answer session follows.|HARLEQUIN'S DEMISE : ETHNICITY AND THE COLONIAL FOUNDATION OF BRAZILIAN NATIONAL IDENTITY / G.
