1. Farias, Monica. Transformative Political Spaces? Asambleas Populares, Identity, Alliances and Belonging in Buenos Aires.

Degree: PhD, 2016, University of Washington

This dissertation presents a feminist and postcolonial analysis of spaces of encounter and alliance across social difference by paying attention to asambleas populares [popular assemblies] in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina. My work draws on scholarship related to space and identity, poverty politics and alliances, and citizenship to investigate the potential of these asambleas to challenge poverty and inequality both in their hegemonic discursive constructions as well as in their materiality. In my research, I pay close attention to the spatiality of the relationships in asambleas and investigate the ways their members negotiate coming in close proximity with difference - in terms of class, gender, and race - and with what effects. I argue that the socioeconomic and political crisis of 2001-02 represented a moment of rupture in the political imagination, creating a propitious context to overcome barriers to progressive politics for some sectors. The geohistorical context in which the asambleas emerged engendered the creation of spaces with potential for the disruption of middle-class class identities and political subjectivities. These changes happen through engagement over extended periods of time, and they require much work. They entail a profound critique of one's values and stereotypes about 'poor others.' They also spark increasing recognition of one's privilege and the workings of power structures that produce and re-produce poverty. At the same time, the characteristics of the asambleas in terms of organizing their work and building social relationships facilitate the practice of empathy, which I argue is a fundamental tool for the construction and maintenance of alliances across difference. Relationships of affections entangled with the work in the asambleas are deeply political, because they imply the recognition of difference in non-oppressive ways as well as self-awareness/critique in ways that contribute to re-subjectification and engagement with social change. Lastly, I argue that the non-hegemonic ways of organizing in these spaces as well as the work across difference disrupt normalized liberal understandings of citizenship, community and belonging, as much as they question the very foundations upon which the social order has been built in Argentina.

2. Alves, Eduardo Leandro. Brasil, um país de fé: por que o maior país católico do mundo, também é o maior país pentecostal do mundo?.

Degree: 2012, Escola Superior de Teologica

This research aims to show that in Brazil, there were several religious influences that generated from the mixture of peoples and their religions, a very people-oriented mystical supernatural. Thus, with the arrival of Pentecostal missionaries in 1910, Pentecostal theology found fertile ground, because its message had God intervening in a visible way in the life of the people, healing their diseases, saving their soul and generating hope of eternal salvation. Therefore, we investigate to what extent the religious culture of Brazil, the fruit of the various ethnicities that formed what we now call the Brazilian people, favors the Classical Pentecostal Theology and its development in the various strata of its society. For this, the text presents in an introductory way the religious history of the settlers, shows the religious expressions practiced in Brazil before the arrival of the settlers, as well as the religiosity that black Africans brought to Brazil, reports the arrival of the first Protestant missionaries, analyzes the Pentecostal missionaries arrived in Brazil with a Classical Pentecostal Theology, as well as the possible causes of its growth in Brazil. Turning, then, to contemporary issues related to the centennial of Brazil's largest Pentecostal denomination, the Assemblies of God. In this analysis it is assumed that the theory of Max Weber's "elective affinity" can be added to the proposal of Clifford Geertz, where it is assumed that the development of Classical Pentecostalism in Brazil was favored in the forming of its people by very particular social issues that, because of affinity, among all the possibilities of the already present evangelical theology, opted by cultural affinity for Pentecostalism.

Esta pesquisa busca mostrar que no Brasil houve várias influências religiosas que geraram, a partir da mistura entre os povos e suas religiões, um povo místico bastante voltado para o sobrenatural. Assim, com a chegada dos Missionários Pentecostais em 1910, a Teologia Pentecostal encontrou um terreno fértil, pois a mensagem anunciada apresentava Deus intervindo de forma visível na vida do povo, curando as suas doenças, salvando a sua alma e gerando a esperança de salvação eterna. Sendo assim, investiga-se em que medida a cultura religiosa brasileira, fruto das várias etnias que formaram o que hoje chamamos de povo brasileiro, favorece a Teologia Pentecostal Clássica e o seu desenvolvimento nas várias camadas da sociedade brasileira. Para isso o texto apresenta de forma introdutória a história religiosa dos colonizadores; mostra as expressões religiosas que havia no Brasil antes da chegada dos colonizadores, assim como a religiosidade que os negros africanos trouxeram ao Brasil; relata a chegada dos primeiros missionários protestantes; analisa a chegada dos missionários pentecostais no Brasil com a Teologia Pentecostal Clássica, assim como as possíveis causas do seu crescimento no Brasil. Passando, então, a questões contemporâneas relativas ao centenário da maior denominação Pentecostal do Brasil, a…
