361) Um brasilianista exemplar: Tom Skidmore e a história do Brasil moderno


A Universidade Brown prepara uma homenagem ao maior brasilianista conhecido: Tom Skidmore. Trata-se, sem dúvida alguma, do maior brasilianista conhecido, herdeiro legítimo de Robert Southey e de vários outros estrangeiros que se dedicaram a conhecer, entender e explicar a nossa história, para os estrangeiros e para nós mesmos. Seus livros permanecem como referência básica, na ausência de equivalentes nacionais a uma história isenta, objetiva e solidamente ancorada na documentação e em entrevistas com os principais personagens políticos do momento.

Confira a programação e depois veja, em post subsequente, a minha homenagem a ele.
