Report I participated in the interdisciplinary ABRE conference 2017(Association of Brazilianists in Europe), which took place at the University of Leiden (Netherlands). This conference was the first of its kind in Europe because it is the launching event of the Association of Brazilianists in Europe. I held a presentation about my current research project of contemporary Brazilian literature, which received a very positive feedback; I was told to publish my speech and to go on studying the novels of Luis Krausz as this is pioneer’s work. The rather small group made it easy to get in contact with such important academics as Prof. Leslie Bethell (University of London), Prof. James Green (Brown University)
