Celebrate the World Cup with Guest Blog Posts

FifaOlé, Olé, Olé! It's almost time for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil! To celebrate, we've asked some of our authors who specialize in Brazil to write guest posts for our blog.

We start off the series tomorrow with Bryan McCann's critique of the idea that the World Cup will bring economic prosperity to Brazil. The following week, on June 18, Jeffrey Lesser writes about multiculturalism and football in Brazil. On June 25 we present an excerpt from Seth Garfield's book Indigenous Struggle at the Heart of Brazil, in which he remembers watching the 1994 World Cup with a group of Xavante Indians.  On July 2, John Gledhill writes about how preparations for the World Cup have affected the poor. And finally, on July 9, Marc Hertzman writes about gender and the World Cup. We hope you'll check in each week to read these posts and get a deeper understanding of how the World CUp is affecting Brazil.
