research overview

  • Dr. Schincariol's interests are in Portuguese Language and Portuguese and Brazilian literatures. His research is focused on the Brazilian Catholic novel of the 20th century and explores the relations between literature and religion. His scholarly research also encompasses the broader trends in Brazilian literature of the 1930-1950’s, and concentrates on two main approaches to literature that were often in dialogue, the regionalist and the psychological novel. Recently he has been also interested in contemporary Brazilian literature, particularly in how violence is represented. By incorporating elements of Sociology, Philosophy, Ecology, and Philosophy of Religion, his scholarly work takes an interdisciplinary approach.
