The Leitorado Brasileiro supports teaching and research on Brazilian Portuguese at Heidelberg University. It is affiliated with the Heidelberg Center for Ibero-American Studies (HCIAS). The Leitorado Brasileiro is one of the 30 seats of the Guimarães Rosa Institute worldwide, which is dedicated to the promotion of research and teaching of the Portuguese spoken in Brazil and contributes to the spread of Brazilian culture and literature in Germany.
In Brazil, a rich cultural and linguistic diversity has developed due to the immigration of different peoples and their mixing with the native population. The Leitorado Brasileiro seeks dialogue between languages and cultures and to raise awareness of Brazil’s diversity through scientifically oriented teaching and research, as well as cultural exchange at Heidelberg University.
The scientific and cultural events, coordinated in conjunction with the HCIAS of Heidelberg University, are aimed at those interested in Brazil and the Portuguese language.
More information about current events from the Leitorado Brasileiro may be found on this website.
The program Leitorado Brasileiro has existed since 1953 with the goal of spreading the Portuguese language and Brazilian culture at universities across the globe. Since September 2022, the Leitorado Brasileiro has been supported by the Guimarães Rosa Institute of the Brazilian Ministry of Foreign Affairs' "Department for the Promotion of the Portuguese Language (DPLP)".
