Ruth Brazil 5

CMCI Senior Lecturer Dr Ruth Adams is back from her fifth visit to Brazil, where she was the guest of the Culture and Media Studies Department at UFF (Universidade Federal Fluminense) in Niteroi, near Rio de Janeiro.

Ruth led a post-graduate seminar over three days on the topic of Youth Subcultures, Popular Music and Identity.  While she was there, Ruth also gave a guest lecture to staff and students at ESPM (Escola Superior de Propaganda e Marketing) in Rio, on the subject of ‘Nostalgia in English Society and Culture’, and attended a launch for a book in which she has a chapter on punk.

Ruth (second from the right) is pictured here with Claudia Pereira and Joana Beleza, the editors of A cultura material nas (sub)culturas juvenis: Do DIY as trocas digits (The material culture of youth (sub)cultures: From DIY to digital exchanges), and fellow contributor Monica Machado.
