Luiz Fernando Valente, Marguerite Itamar Harrison, Leila M. Lehnen


The position papers below formed the basis for a roundtable on “Brazilian Insecurity,” sponsored by the American Portuguese Studies Association at the Convention of the Modern Language Association of America, in New York City, January 4-7, 2018, in response to the presidential theme for the convention, “States of Insecurity.” The papers deal with such issues as the shape of undergraduate education, the training of graduate students, faculty hiring and promotion, and the future of the humanities in the American academy. The authors represent three different types of academic institutions in the United States: a private research university (Brown University), a private liberal arts college (Smith College) and a public research university (University of New Mexico).[1]

[1] On July 1, 2018 Professor Leila M. Lehnen will join the faculty of Brown University as Associate Professor of Portuguese and Brazilian Studies.
