Why Law & Anthropology?
My solid interest in legal anthropology is a visceral part of my personality and instinct. My earliest memories in this regard go back to the Brazilian Amazon region that embodies an overwhelming cultural and biological diversity. Growing up there made me appreciate the fragile nature and extraordinary beauty of intercultural dialogues. By doing my bachelor in Laws at the Federal University of Para in Belém, the unofficial capital of the Brazilian Amazon, I started to develop my legal anthropological thinking. There I conducted a short empirical research at the Ver-o-Peso market, one of the biggest open-air markets in South America. I remember clearly the joy that I felt in doing it. When I moved to Germany about seven years ago to pursue my postgraduate studies, I could expand my knowledge about world cultural diversity. Out of personal interest this subject has evolved in my life through the years and synthesized with my academic path.
