Who Invented Brazil? (2014)

unapi

The Manguinhos Institute, popularly known as Manguinhos, was founded in 1900 in Rio de Janeiro and continues to be a leading Brazilian institution for research, teaching, and the production of medicine in the public health area. During the first years of its history, Maguinhos was involved in efforts to build the Brazilian nation and national identity through creating a “ modern ” Brazilian science ( Cukierman 2007 , Benchimol, 1990 ). 1 The scientific expeditions to Brazil ’ s vast hinterland undertaken by the institute between 1911 and 1913 are particularly important for understanding the role of science in constructing Brazil as a modern nation. These expeditions allow us to see the interactions between local and global forms of knowledge in the locations in which they came into contact and the tensions this contact produced.
