British Presence project shortlisted

"The British Presence in Bahia: A New Perspective on the History of Brazil and Britain," by Sabrina Gledhill and Ernesto Carvalho, has been shortlisted for the 2006 edition of the Odebrecht Group's Clarival do Prado Valladares Award. Historian Consuelo Novais Sampaio won the inaugural award in 2004, which resulted in the publication of 50 Anos de Urbanização - Salvador da Bahia no Século XIX (50 Years of Urban Development - Salvador da Bahia in the 19th Century). Sabrina Gledhill's proposal to republish the works of African-Brazilian vindicationist Manuel Querino was shortlisted in 2005.
