About Professor Vieira

My research focus on “Afro-Brazilian and Afro-Portuguese Women’s Literature and Cinema.” My current and future projects contemplate interest in women’s narratives, with secondary emphases in Afro-Latinx literature and cinema and diaspora studies. I am also interested in the discussion of race in Germany particularly in literature and cinema.
