Author Biography

Ângela Arruda, Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

ANGELA ARRUDA obtained the Diplome of the Ecole de Hautes Etudes in 1981. She has been working on social representations since then. Denise Jodelet was first invited to Brazil in 1982 by her initiative. Her PhD on Social Psychology was at the University of Sao Paulo. She teaches and supervises Master and PhD theses in the Post-Graduate Programme on Psychology at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. Until the late 90s, her main research interests were the human relations to the environment, Brazilian culture, health and gender issues. In 2000, the imaginary and cultural aspects such as the representations of Brazil, images in social representations research and the universe of gangsta rap as part of an urban culture, became new sources of interest.
