Research and publications
Raizes Brasileiras believes that research can be integrated to social practices. Therefore, we support research projects on heritage/community languages, Brazilian culture, and Portuguese language in Australia.
Dr Lilian Fleuri, the director of Raizes Brasileiras, has been a lecturer in Portuguese and Latin American Studies at the University of Queensland since 2011, and as such, has supported other investigator to develop their research.
Parents of Raizes Brasileiras also are happy to contribute in interviews, and classes can be opened for observations and application of innovative pedagogical projects.
