Meanwhile . . . In Brazil

Posted on Posted in Symposium Session

South America bound, a glimpse into the history of their Industrial Revolution.

Presented at Symposium 2019 by Andre M. Mahdi

The focus of the industrial revolution tends to be around the United States and some parts of Europe. The heart of the age beats in England, but what is happening in the rest of the world?

Let’s go on an adventure within the history of Brazil and what was happening across the ocean. We will analyze our way through history and geography, and see where the time takes us.


Andre Mahdi is currently a docent at the Museum of Science and Industry of Chicago, helping to shape young minds. He has a drive for research, fact based discussion, and has attempted to be unbiased. All of which are surprising hard to maintain. Andre has presented on the likes of the history of steampunk, Nikola Tesla, and even run games for John Wick Presents at GenCon. He enjoys telling tales enough and is an avid game master, who takes adventurers into the depths of their own imagination.
