Hi, Anna.  This is Paul Losch, one of the librarians in the Latin American Collection.  If you're in the "Peoples of Brazil" course, you may have visited us last month. 

I assume that you were told specifically to find a journal article, and not a book.  I'll also assume that you want something in English, but, of course, there's lots more in Portuguese on Brazil than there is in English.

A good place to start online would be the Anthropology Plus database.

Go to

Click on Databases(at the top)

Search for Anthropology Plus, and follow the link

You can also try, from , the HAPI database.  You can limit your search to English-language articles, if need be.

Using words like "Brazil folklore" and "Brazil superstitions" you should get a variety of results to choose from.

Sometimes these databases will give you links to articles that are online.  Sometimes you'll get a citation, and then have to find out how to see the journal.  E-mail me at , and I'll be glad to help you if you get stuck in that process.  You can also call us at 273-2745.
