    Event synopsis: Gilberto Freyre’s book, Ingleses no Brasil (The English in Brazil) published in 1948 explored in a sympathetic way the influence of the British on trade and industry in Brazil, especially in the early nineteenth century. Notwithstanding this, the historical role of the British in Brazil from the nineteenth century is not well known and Freyre’s book, although pioneering on the topic, is a personal account and not one that sought to be comprehensive. Over sixty years later and with the benefit of new scholarship, including the publication of Freyre’s book in English in 2011, it seems timely to take a fresh look at the topic and explore it from wider perspectives. The conference brings together scholars of international standing who have conducted research on some aspect of the British in Brazil.
