Join us for a conversation on Brazil's simultaneous crises (Zika virus, economic recession, impeachment process) and their narratives in the Brazilian media with Fabiano Maisonnave, senior reporter and editorial writer for Folha de S.Paulo, Brazil’s largest newspaper. Since 2012, Fabiano has covered some of the country’s most important stories, from land conflicts in the Amazon to the 2014 presidential election. Previously, Maisonnave worked as the newspaper’s correspondent in Washington, Caracas and Beijing. He has reported from 30 countries on events including the Haitian earthquake and China’s leadership change. A former Fulbright scholar, he holds a master’s degree in history from the University of Connecticut. His research was on Afro-Brazilian immigrants in the United States.
