SILVA Francisco José de Assis, a mulatto son of freed slaves, and Maria Leopoldina da Câmara Machado, an Azorean working-class immigrant. Francisco was a painter and Maria, a washwoman. The family resided in the home of their employer, Dona Maria José de Mendonça Barrozo Pereira, wife of the then-deceased Senator Bento Barroso Pereira, as dependent workers, or agregados. Dona Maria José would become Machado’s godmother, giving him his middle name. Throughout his childhood, Machado experienced two vastly different worlds in terms of race and class: the poverty and deplorable conditions facing the then capital city’s enslaved population, and the privilege and abuses of slaveholders of the nation’s elite.

Additionally, her articles have appeared in a number of peer-reviewed journals, such as Revista de Crítica Literaria Latinoamericana, Afro-Hispanic Review, Luso-Brazilian Review, Ellipsis: Journal of the American Portuguese Studies Association, and Revista de Letras. Her current book project discusses the overlap of discourses on immigration and slavery and servitude in order to reveal the cross-currents of the Portuguese and African Diasporas in Brazil.
