Professor Leslie Bethell of the University of Oxford traces the life and internationalist thought of Joaquim Nabuco.
In the third episode of the Global Thinkers of the International Discussion Series, Professor Leslie Bethell, a leading expert on 19th and 20th century Latin America, Emeritus Fellow of St Anthony’s College and founder of the Centre for Brazilian Studies, Oxford, will trace the life and internationalist thought of Brazil’s Joaquim Nabuco (1849–1910). Nabuco was a Brazilian writer, statesman, and a leading voice in the abolitionist movement of his country. One of his most significant works in this regard is the book "O Abolicionismo" that was published in 1883. He later became the first Brazilian ambassador to the United States from 1905–1910 marking a significant shift in Brazil’s role in the world arena.
