Richard de Araújo

I was born in Brazil, but life took me to many other places abroad and I ended up here in the UK. Until recently I was a lecturer of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Brazil in Lebanon, where I taught Portuguese language, culture and history of Brazil – as a result of my degree in Literature at University of Sao Paulo and the Masters in History at Unicamp.
So, my interest for “Lusofonia” is in all its aspects: Portuguese language, Lusophone communities abroad, geopolitics of language, etc. Another topic is the Middle East, having lived there made ​​me see how things really are in that part of the world.
