Talk by Camila Nicácio

Camila Nicácio is a professor of law at the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG, Brazil) and coordinator of DOM - Anthropology of Law Research Group (UFMG). She holds a PhD in Law from the University of Paris I, Panthéon-Sorbonne and is currently a visiting researcher at the University of Ottawa in the project Understanding Nonreligion in a Complex Future (NCF), coordinated by Lori Beaman.

This talk will focus on the tensions between religious diversity and religious freedom in Brazil, especially with regard to Afro-Brazilian religions, from a legal anthropology perspective. The presentation will be based on recent research on court cases that demonstrate how racial-ethnic components have a different influence and content in the context of legal claims regarding religious freedom.

The event will be held in-person and on Zoom

The event will be held in-person at the Faculty of Social Sciences and online.
