Becoming Brazil: New Fiction, Poetry, and Memoir (MĀNOA 30:2)

[et_pb_section bb_built=”1″][et_pb_row][et_pb_column type=”3_4″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.17.6″]

Sebastião Salgado Selected photographs Brazil, 1981–2016
Sebastião Salgado, selected photographs. Brazil, 1981–2016. Salgado is the featured artist in Becoming Brazil.

Becoming Brazil, the newest issue from MĀNOA, brings together prose and poetry by more than two dozen authors, juxtaposing stories of the country’s diverse people in places urban, rural and remote. Depicted in this collection are the machinations of the military in Brasilia during the recent dictatorship; the cultural practices of the caiçara fishermen of Paraty; and the violence that too frequently befalls residents of Brazil’s impoverished favelas. 

While Becoming Brazil was in production, a fire destroyed the Brazilian National Museum, destroying countless artifacts in the world’s largest archive of indigenous Brazilian culture and history. For the team at MĀNOA and guest editors Eric M. B. Becker and Noah Perales-Estoesta, “this volume took on added significance … and became a project in which to represent—through the voices of writers—the resilience of the country’s diverse people, its long history, and what Brazil is still becoming.”

Explore this exciting new issue, including the work of acclaimed Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado. Continue reading “Becoming Brazil: New Fiction, Poetry, and Memoir (MĀNOA 30:2)”

Rapa Nui Journal, Volume 31, 2018

[et_pb_section bb_built=”1″][et_pb_row][et_pb_column type=”3_4″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.17.6″]

This issue of Rapa Nui Journal features an article on a use-wear and residue analysis of a collection of 12 matā in the Australian Museum, Sydney. The article questions the value of relying on tool shape as an adequate indication of past use. The study illustrates the value of museum ethnographic collections for understanding past tool use.

The second article of the issue looks at two examples of artifact collections that were brought back from the South Seas by Yankee whalers. Among them is a singular head of a wooden moai from Rapa Nui (Easter Island).

Also in this issue is a report about the surviving 1,200 words from the extinct Moriori language and a comparison with Maori and Rapanui languages. A Moriori speaker may have understood much said by an Easter Islander as their languages shared at least one word in five, or over 20%, and may have shared many more.
