IEAT Annual Seminar 2018

IEAT holds on October 18 and 19 its Annual Seminar, in Auditorium B106 of Center of Didactic Activities 3 of UFMG (CAD3). Presented since 2007, IEAT`s Annual Seminar is a traditional meeting of the Institute to present to the community an extract of its activities during the year.

The Seminar is open to the public with free entrance. The certificate of attendance will be issued under request. Previous registration can be made by electronic form. 

According to IEAT director Estevam Las Casas this year when the Institute’s 20 years are approaching and in line with this week’s selected theme, “the IEAT 2018 Annual Seminar will be a space to present research developed at the Institute and have the opportunity to discuss about inequality in Brazil.  Recent data indicates that the 5% wealthier of the country own more than 95% of Brazil`s wealth and recently we have seen millions of people unemployed and the return of the country to the map of hunger. The shy advances of the last decades are threatened”. “IEAT Annual Seminar is a moment of reflection when we also hear from the University community critics and suggestions of our work as well as present the resident’s researches and research groups”, highlights Professor Las Casas.
