The goal of Brazil in Berkeley is to encourage the study and research of Brazilian politics and culture at Berkeley and in the Bay Area. In addition to the public forum, which includes lectures, conferences and cultural activities, CLAS hosts the Rio Branco Visiting Chair of Brazil. These activities have resulted in a transnational working network of Brazilianists.
