Funded by a Santander travel grant, Lisa Shaw visited University of Liverpool’s partner university in Brazil, the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro in October to discuss the development of research collaborations between the two universities in the area of film and Brazilian studies. She was interviewed by journalism students about her research interests and gave a research seminar on Carmen Miranda’s vocal and visual performance style in Hollywood films for students and staff of the School of Communication Studies. Lisa also visited the School of Audio-visual and Communication Studies at the Universidade Federal Fluminense in Niteroi to discuss ideas for future research collaboration and to give a talk based on her 2013 monograph Carmen Miranda (BFI/Palgrave Macmillan, 2013).
