In 2010 Leslie Bethell wrote a provocative essay in the Journal of Latin America Studies entitled ''Brazil and Latin America''. In raising the question ''Is Brazil part of Latin America?” the essay generated, and continues to generate, considerable debate. The conference aims to explore further the theme of Brazil’s relationship with the rest of Latin America, past and present.
