The main objective of this research is to construct an interpretation about the significance of the residential segregation to race relations in Brazil, from the case of the metropolitan region of São Paulo and its racial inequalities in the recent times.The research internship abroad proposed here is motivated by the need of certain advances in our research that will find in the US academic environment an ideal place for its development.Thus, as part of our research, we plan a nine-month stay at Brown University, between September 2015 and May 2016. During the exchange in the United States, we intend to undertake the following activities: (a) Draft the analysis of the first data collected in qualitative research to discuss it with colleagues and US researchers. (b) Refine and complete the quantitative part of our research, exploring different ways to measure residential segregation and applying locational-attainment models (developed by Alba & Logan) to Brazilian data. (c) Deepen our contact with the American literature on residential segregation, race relations, middle-class blacks, and social stratification and space.
