Meredith W. Watts is currently midway through a nine-month residence in Brazil.  He and his wife and research partner, Simone Ferro, are working on a book on popular culture in the northeast state of Maranhão.  This includes the Bumba-meu-boi festival and diverse religious practices in several traditions, ranging from popular Christianity to many descended from African and indigenous practice.

Meredith’s blog http://www.meredithwwatts.com/MWBrazilBlog/  has several dozen posts with reflections and photos from his experience.  Meredith will return to Milwaukee in July, 2016. 

While he is in Brazil, Meredith can be reached at wattsmeredith8@gmail.com
