Guilherme Nogueira

His research interests are spread on racism, black religion and gender issues, studied through Latin American social theory. His master’s thesis and doctoral dissertation are specifically centered on the study of Afro-Brazilian religions, that were founded in Brazil with the arrival of enslaved African people from the 16th through the 19th century, share syncretism with native Brazilian indigenous cults and colonial Catholicism and, historically, were mostly led by women. In those works, he researches their relations with the State and the social political issues they face, particularly in Argentina and Brazil.
