A lecture by Herbert Klein

Sulzberger Parlor, 3rd Floor Barnard Hall

The Portuguese forged the first European overseas empire and their movement to Brazil, stretching from the early 1500s to the 1970s, represents one of the longest-lived transoceanic migrations in human history. Herbert Klein examines the causes and consequences of this movement, painting a compelling portrait of the Portuguese’s subsequent integration and acculturation into Brazilian society.

Herbert Klein is professor of history and director of the Center for Latin American Studies at Stanford University, and the author of seventeen books on the history of the Americas.
