Um evento ainda negligenciado importante na História do Brasil:

Geralmente é bem conhecido que os primeiros mártires para dar suas vidas para a abolição da escravatura foram os bravos combatentes da liberdade da Revolução Haitiana liderados por Toussaint l'Overture em 1791.

Também é geralmente sabido que o ministro presbiteriano branco, Elijah Parish Lovejoy foi o primeiro mártir a sacrificar sua vida para a abolição da escravatura nos Estados Unidos em 1837.

No entanto, não é do conhecimento geral que, no Brasil, quatro homens, Luiz Gonzaga, João de Deus, Lucas Dantas, Manuel Faustino e foram enviados à forca por sua participação em uma insurreição para libertar os escravos e trazer a democracia para o Brasil em 1798.

Este evento constitui um importante elo, mas esquecido na história da luta pela liberdade e democracia, a abolição da escravidão, e da história brasileira.

Hi Anca. Your research seems quite interesting. Would it be possible to watch/check/see it somewhere online? Vimeo or somewhere else?

Hola a todos. 

Me llago Diego Ballestero, soy un antropologo argentino graduado en la Universidad Nacional de la Plata. Desde hace 2 años me encuentro viviendo en Alemania para finalizar mi tesis doctoral. Mi tema principal de investigación es la historia de la antropología argentina entre 1890 y 1930.

Espero poder aportar elementos de discusión a esta comunidad!

Thanks Ana, I'll give that a shot =) The book does seem to be quite interesting, using a decolonizing approach and everything. We'll see how it works.. :-)

maybe you can contact the author of this book. i know she is working with many of the indigenous productions and thinking the politics of it.

Hi guys, I'm doing a research on Bolivian (and Latin-American in general) cinema, militant cinema especifically - or cinematographic attempts of communication between opposite sectors of society (indians/white peopole, peasants/upper classes, and so on).

I am already familiar with much of the production in that area, at least, from the 60's till very recently. What I do want to know, and perhaps someone here can help, is if there is any cinematographic production of that sort being done RIGHT NOW in LatAm, and especially in Bolivia and Peru, be it from well known directors, be it from small cineclubs, etc.

Any contact would be of great help!

Thanks, Rafael.

I have just launched the remodeled version of American Ethnography, as from now a Quasiweekly internet glossy on the tradition and practice of anything we call ethnography as it relates to whatever we call American. Since the magazine is rather embarrassingly weak on ethnography from outside of North America (not to say outside of USA), I invite anybody who have material they think could fit into the format of the magazine, to get in touch and tell me about it!

The web page is here:
