Professor of History John French, Global Brazil Lab co-director and Bass Connections team leader, talks about the immersive experience of taking Duke students to the Baixada Fluminense on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro.
Duke undergraduates and graduate students were able to collaborate with Brazilian students as they tackled the issue of accessible college education for Brazil’s poorest populations.
In this video by Eric Barstow of the Franklin Humanities Institute, French is joined by Katya Wesolowski and Adair Necalli as they discuss their collaboration.
