About the Author
Courtney J. Campbell is assistant professor in Latin American history at the University of Birmingham. Her research focuses on themes of cultural identity, globalization, spatial history, race, and gender in Brazil.
"Students of regionalism have long acknowledged the impossibility of analyzing a region's history, politics, and culture apart from the nation. What is strikingly new and significant in Courtney J. Campbell's fascinating study of the Brazilian Northeast is her emphasis on the way the world beyond the nation served as a site for regional identity formation and as a resource for regionalists eager to demonstrate the centrality of the Northeast to the Brazilian nation and its vibrant culture. With chapters that explore such intriguing topics as wartime romances, World Cup soccer matches, and Miss Universe Pageants, Region out of Place offers not just an innovative perspective on the Brazilian Northeast but on the very question of how to understand regional identity." --Barbara Weinstein, New York University
