Teresa Lozano Long Institute of Latin American Studies says
In "The Invention of Free Labor in Brazil: Slavery, Contract, and Law," Brazilian scholar Henrique Espada Lima examines the ambiguities raised by the concept of "labor freedom" in the nineteenth century through a comparative perspective of not only the history and historiography of slavery, but also the social, economic, and institutional history of labor. Professor Seth Garfield (History, UT Austin) will introduce the talk.

Historian Henrique Espada Lima is a history professor at the Federal University of Santa Catarina. His research encompasses historiography, methodology, and theory of history, and contemporary history and Brazil (nineteenth and twentieth centuries), with emphasis on ex-slaves' paths between slavery and post-emancipation, as well as domestic work.

Talk held in SRH 1.313, Hackett Room. Free and open to the public.

Sponsored by the LLILAS Brazil Center. For further information, please contact Carla Silva-Muhammad, Brazil Center Coordinator, at carla.silva@austin.utexas.edu.
