History and Mission
Gávea-Brown Publications was founded in 1980 under the auspices of the Center for Portuguese and Brazilian Studies at Brown University, with the purpose making Portuguese literature and culture better known in the English-speaking world. With such a broad and ambitious objective, its plan was to publish titles in such diverse areas as:
- translations of Portuguese literature;
- works relating to Portuguese Studies;
- original creative works, in English or in Portuguese, which in some way reflect the interactions of Portuguese and American cultures, particularly those offering insight into the experience of the Portuguese in the United States.
The press also publishes an annual journal, Gávea-Brown, which is especially dedicated to work in this last area. The journal is made possible through the generous support of the Fundação Luso-Americana para o Desenvolvimento (FLAD).
