The first British Commonwealth Chair in Social Anthropology was inaugurated at the University of Cavo City, University of Cape Town (UCT), by the British anthropologist Alfred Radcliffe-Brown, in 1921. Situated in South Africa prior to apartheid, it emerged in opposition to the regime racist exception established in 1948. The objective of the conference is to give intelligibility to social and power relations immersed in a complex geopolitical fabric, beyond the colony/metropolis duality, which reconfigures the issues of segregation, race and gender, in a time and specific spaces, conforming the boundaries of the anthropology then practiced.

Event (8 to 9/7/2021) under the co-organization of Juliana Manzoni Cavalcanti, postdoctoral student at DA-USP:


Dear colleagues,

Due to the serious events that have taken place in Colombia since last week, which culminated in strikes and violent repressions in the last few days, we decided to postpone our event, which counted on the participation of several Colombian anthropological colleagues and with the institutional support of Universidad Externado de Colombia . In this way, our decision is based primarily on respect and solidarity for what our Colombian colleagues are going through and on support, in a general way for students, academics and other Colombian citizens.

We also inform you that the tables will be transferred to the 26th and 27th of May and we count on the help of all of you to publicize this postponement carried out in an urgent manner.

Thank you in advance for your support and understanding.

A big hug,

Juliana Caruso on behalf of the organizing committee

The African presence in Brazilian music manifests itself in several ways. If, in 1966, Baden Powell "carioquizava" candomblé with the Afro-sambas he composed with Vinícius de Moraes, half a century later we live an unprecedented moment with the arrival of musicians from different African countries to the metropolis of São Paulo. In the film Afro-Sampas we see what can happen when musicians from both sides of the Atlantic are brought into contact in the city where they live. Yannick Delass (Democratic Republic of Congo), Edoh Fiho (Togo), Lenna Bahule (Mozambique) and Brazilians Ari Colares, Chico Saraiva and Meno del Picchia accepted our invitation to a first meeting in which they experience sounds, memories and creativity.
Afro-Sampas received the award for best film at the ANPOCS Meeting, 2020, and Woya Hayi Mawe - Where are you going? - another film by the same directors - was elected the best medium-length film at the Pierre Verger 2020 Award (Brazilian Association of Anthropology).
The event is commemorating São Paulo's birthday and the film's session will be online via Zoom, on January 23, Saturday, at 3 pm. Free registration!

The screening of the documentary and the debate will be online through the Zoom platform
