The four main goals of this project are to: (1) expand the broader debate on inequality of opportunities in Brazil; (2) locate inequalities based on ascribed characteristics (as race, gender) on two key transitions in youth's life courses, college and work, in a historical longitudinal perspective; (3) produce fresh perspectives on the intersectional nature of social inequalities and perspectives on social inclusion in Brazilian society, therefore elevating the visibility of this topic in global debates; (4) initiate a research collaboration between the University of Texas-Austin and the Center for Metropolitan Studies/Cebrap and University of São Paulo (USP) centered around the theme of inequality of opportunities and social inclusion. To achieve these goals we bring together some of the most qualified experts in the field. The Principal Investigators of this project are Letícia Marteleto (Department of Sociology and Population Research Center, UT-Austin) and Nadya Araújo Guimarães (Department of Sociology-USP and Center for Metropolitan Studies-CEM/Cebrap-USP). We aim to achieve these goals through collaborative research and dialogue, bringing a perspective of social inclusion based on intersectional analysis to these research questions. (AU)
