Henrique Carvalho Pereira is a Brazilian-born student of Romanticism and Theory in a comparative framework. He received his BA in History from the Universidade de São Paulo in 2017, and an MA with distinction and praise in 2020 in Comparative Literature from the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, where he wrote a thesis on the critical works of Paul de Man after Blindness and Insight. He also works with the teaching of foreign languages (ESL, Portuguese, Spanish, German, and French).
His research interests include, but are not limited to, what can be roughly encompassed by the rubrics "German Idealism" (Hegel, Hölderlin, Schelling), "English Romanticism" (Blake, Wordsworth, Keats), "French Romanticism" (Rousseau, Baudelaire), "Portuguese-language Romanticism" (Marquesa de Alorna, Júlia Cortines, Joaquim de Sousândrade), and "Deconstruction" (Paul de Man, Jacques Derrida). The meaning of "free time" is predominantly estranged from him during school semesters, but, when it presents itself to him, he enjoys taking long walks or bike rides through sylvan settings, reading theory (yes, that's my idea of fun), perhaps eventually getting back into boxing someday, and keeping pleasant company.
