Celebrating 50 Years of the Luso-Brazilian Review

In 2015, the Luso-Brazilian Review marks 50 years of continued publication as a biannual, interdisciplinary journal dedicated to stimulating and disseminating research on the Portuguese-speaking world. Founded in 1964 by Professor Alberto Machado da Rosa and published by the University of Wisconsin Press, the Luso-Brazilian Review has been edited or co-edited by professors from the University of Wisconsin Department of Spanish and Portuguese since its inception. Over the five decades of its publication, the LBR has benefited from the collaboration a wide range of well-known scholars from throughout the world. It currently enjoys a reputation as the foremost interdisciplinary publication in the field of Luso-Brazilian Studies in the U.S., and one of the journals with the longest uninterrupted publishing history.


As the current editors of the LBR have continued the practice of seeking to include a variety of topics and critical approaches, the journal has become a key venue for the publication of in-depth studies of the various national cultures of the Portuguese-speaking world. It also has become an important resource for the continued reassessment of the role played by language, literature, geography and history in a world that is increasingly, yet unevenly, globalized and transnational. Portuguese is the official language of eight countries on four different continents and the LBR regularly includes articles authored by national and international scholars whose teaching and research center on the networks that link these countries. The editors are dedicated to maintaining open discussions regarding the models and methodologies will best lead to new modes of production of knowledge about the Lusophone world.


In an effort to maintain and further the Review’s eminence in the field of Luso-Brazilian Studies, the Co-editors and members of the Review’s Editorial Board organized a two-day conference entitled “Celebrating 50 Years of the Luso-Brazilian Review” to mark the journal’s 50th anniversary. This conference, held April 2021, 2012, brought together researchers and writers from the U.S. and abroad who are specialists in literature, history, and the social sciences. Speakers assessed the current state of Luso-Brazilian Studies in the U.S. academy and abroad, and discussed the methodological trends that are shaping research conducted on and in the Portuguese-speaking world.
