French Intellectuals and Cultural Diplomacy in Brazil, 1934–1943locked

  • Hugo Rogelio SuppoHugo Rogelio SuppoDepartment of International Relations, Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro

Summary

Between 1934 and 1943, French cultural diplomacy in Brazil was the task of intellectuals, the so called “intellectual ambassadors.” Notwithstanding the differences in their individual profiles, political convictions, academic conceptions, and religious beliefs, they all carried out their common mission of creating a pro-French profile in the Brazilian academic realm. The article is an analysis of the strategies, means, actors, and results of French cultural diplomacy in Brazil between 1934 and 1943, whose success can be explained, fundamentally, by the symbiosis between the university field and the diplomatic field.
