CALL FOR PAPERS
Historia Crítica, published by the Faculty of Social Sciences at Universidad de los Andes (Bogotá, Colombia), announces a call for papers for the dossier “Intermediaries and Migrations. Mediators and Places of Transit”, to be co-edited by Santiago Muñoz Arbeláez (Universidad de los Andes) and Rachel Nolan (Boston University). We will be receiving submissions until Oct 1 2020.
There is also the BBC Documentary "Brasil, Brasil, Samba to Bossa," the first episode in a three-part series about popular music in Brazil. It can be found online only and divided in four parts, as far as I know, but it works very well in class. The episode on samba is really good, featuring interviews not only with famous samba musicians but also with great specialists, such as Hermano Vianna.

Paul Goodman's documentary Escola de samba (2005) is worth having a look at. It follows the Camisa Verde samba school in São Paulo as they prepare for Carnaval. The libraries at Penn State, Carnegie Mellon, and University of Pittsburgh all have copies of it.
