Welcome to the 4 Capoeira Thoughts network!
If your visit to the 4 Capoeira Thoughts was thought provocative, you have already joined in. Now you just have to share YOUR thoughts.
This network is about thinking Capoeira philosophy, social inclusion, education, and intercultural learning. About thinking our relations with, and within the art; and most importantly its meaning and purpose in our lives and communities.
The easiest form of collaboration is engaging with (or creating) discussions around the written posts; critics, comments, and counter-arguments are all welcomed.
Through commenting on this page (see comments below) you can also:
- suggest issues for new posts;
- indicate social endeavours and experiences (community based projects, programmes, or activities involving Capoeira) you believe would contribute to our discussions;
- indicate people for interviews (Mestres, teachers, artists, scholars).
For post submissions, please consider the following guidelines.
Manuscripts should be double-spaced and a statement of word length should be added to the end of the article (up to 800 words). Please, use single quotation marks (or double quotation marks within quotations), aligned margins, and single spacing throughout the text (with a space between each paragraph). Paragraphs should not be indented. Contributions must be referenced (as ‘Works Cited’) in MLA style, for example:
Assunção, Matthias. Capoeira: The History of an Afro-Brazilian Martial Art. NY. EUA: Taylor & Francis Inc., 2005.
Please, submit your contribution electronically (via email attachment) in Microsoft Word or equivalent, and include brief author biography with submissions.
Eurico Vianna: firstname.lastname@example.org
As mentioned, the 4 Capoeira Thoughts is also an attempt to gather collaborators to co-edit an online Journal open to submissions. Whilst, we build our network of collaborators (practitioners, scholars, artists, and writers) the blog will be publishing in post format only.
If you would like to join the body of co-editors, please send me an e-mail with your brief CV (including Capoeira background, and other areas of expertise).
Thanks for joining in!
