Abstract: Since the 1990s, the end of the Cold War and the rise of globalization have dealt a severe blow to the international order centered on the nation-state. In this context, subnational actors have sought to establish contact with foreign entities with growing intensity, devising international initiatives that are often unrelated to state policy and posing challenges to foreign policy instruments and diplomatic routines. The Brazilian foreign office, confronted with this scenario, has expressed concern: it has sought to respond to the new challenges it faces, while also recognizing the need to consider the subnational dimension in the decision making process of Brazilian foreign policy; and it has struggled to develop institutional mechanisms in order to grant, albeit unenthusiastically, a more significant role to subnational governments in Brazilian foreign policy. This article intends to analyze the process that culminated, in 1995, in the creation of Federative Diplomacy, a state policy conceived to help the Brazilian foreign office work more closely with subnational governments, to incorporate the subnational dimension into the formulation and execution of foreign policy and to allow the state to coordinate the international activities of Brazilian subnational units.

3. Heredia, Juanita. "Brazilian like Us: Saudade and the U.S. Brazilian Diaspora in Kathleen de Azevedo's "Samba Dreamers"" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the LASA, Boston Marriott Copley Place, Boston, MA, USA, <Not Available>. 2020-01-24 <>
Publication Type: Session Paper
Abstract: In her first novel Samba Dreamers (2006), U.S. Brazilian Kathleen de Azevedo creates a narrative that constitutes an important moment for Brazilian diasporic communities in the United States. This novel is considered the first published in English that contributes to the literary representation of the Brazilian diaspora in the United States. Samba Dreamers not only represents the traumatic experiences of Brazilian exiles and immigrants who are forced to leave their homeland, but it also addresses how the United States government and Hollywood constructed and commodified an image of Brazil as tropical and exotic through an allusion to the iconic figure of singer, actress, and entertainer Carmen Miranda. Indirectly, Azevedo critiques the exploitation of Miranda’s body and mind that eventually led to her early death. Though successful in Hollywood and in the United States, Miranda like most Brazilian immigrants and their families longed to return to her home in Rio de Janeiro but was no longer accepted as she had once been. Azevedo alerts us to how saudade (nostalgia or longing for the homeland) affects the Brazilian diaspora, be they exiles or immigrants. This novel is also a dialogue between the cultural dominance of Rio de Janiero (Azevedo’s birthplace) and Los Angeles, home of Hollywood, invention, and the possibility of the American Dream by showing that the Global South is alive and well in the Global North.
