In Bulletin No. 44, Laura Moutinho (USP) reports on the developments in the American academic environment of the Black Lives Matter movement, through the hashtags created by STEM, an acronym for science, technology, engineering and mathematics, which paralyzed the academic publishing market in June 2020. The author points out that the racial discussion in the scientific environment repositions science as an entity capable of impacting on the debates held in society, producing new subjectivities; and reinforces the importance of the intersectionality of racial debate to gender issues, since there is in the academic environment the under-representation of women, especially non-white women.

1st honorable mention: Reinvent the Wheel. The circulation of samba among subjects, events and repertoires in Cachoeira - BA, by Caio Csermak. Doctoral thesis defended in the Graduate Program in Social Anthropology at the University of São Paulo (USP), supervised by Maria Manuela Ligeti Carneiro da Cunha.
Abstract: The work analyzes the processes of institutionalization of the samba de roda groups and the professionalization of the sambadores in the city of Cachoeira, Bahia, from the 1950s to the present. It is divided into three parts to approach such processes from different complementary perspectives: the trajectories of collective subjects in the samba universe; the space of samba in cachoeiranos musical events; and the musical characteristics of samba, as well as its relationship with other repertoires. The data were collected in a fieldwork carried out over 20 months between 2015 and 2018. The work aims to demonstrate that samba has become the articulator of a musical system in Cachoeirano, having effects on the musical practices of the samba musicians and leading to the protagonism of the group of samba de roda on other forms of social organization, as well as samba corrido on other styles of samba.
