Communication and Diversity Seminar on the “Cerrado Museum and the socio-biodiversity of the Brazilian savannah”

The Communication and Diversity Seminar on the “Cerrado Museum and the socio-biodiversity of the Brazilian savannah” will be held on April 4 at 2.30 pm in the ICS Conference Room. The session will feature Rosângela Corrêa and a commentary by Alice Balbé.

The Cerrado Museum is a virtual museum to disseminate scientific knowledge and popular know-how about the socio-biodiversity of the Brazilian savannah, the Cerrado. The virtual space makes the museum’s collection widely and unrestrictedly accessible and disseminates what is being produced by individuals, collectives, and institutions concerning the Cerrado in its most diverse aspects: social, historical, archaeological, palaeontological, anthropological, biological, educational, gastronomic, economic, political, etc. The virtual museum is a scientific/pedagogical tool that allows us to contribute to the construction of a space open to collaboration, connection, and discussion and, consequently, to the creation of knowledge and social intervention.

Rosângela Corrêa is a Professor at the Faculty of Education at the University of Brasília. She has a Master’s and PhD in Social Anthropology from the Universidad Iberoamericana, Mexico. She is currently pursuing a post-doctorate in the Social Anthropology department at the University of Barcelona (2023-2024), Spain.
