Dr Graham Denyer Willis will run a workshop at The Brazilian Academy of Sciences and the British Academy Knowledge Frontiers Symposium from Friday 6 to Sunday 8 March 2020 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The British Academy and the Brazilian Academy of Sciences have invited applications from early career researchers in the humanities and social sciences to attend a Knowledge Frontiers Symposium on the broad theme of Urban Violence. The symposium aims to incentivise and establish international engagement and collaboration between early career researchers from a broad range of disciplines within the humanities and social sciences, encouraging the exchange of ideas across both disciplinary and national boundaries, supporting the development of the next generation of scholars in both countries and strengthening academic links between Brazil and the UK.
