Eli Carter is an Assistant Professor of Brazilian Literature, Film, and Television in the University of Virginia. He holds a BA in Communications from the University of California, Davis and a PhD in Hispanic Languages and Literatures from the University of California, Los Angeles. Professor Carter's research focuses broadly on Brazilian Culture(s) with an emphasis on film, television, and popular culture. His first book, Reimagining Contemporary Brazilian Television Fiction: Luiz Fernando Carvalho's Contemporary Vision (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2018) examines Brazilian television through the singular mode of production and aesthetics in film and television director Luiz Fernando Carvalho's oeuvre. Currently, Professor Carter is working on his second book project, "Brazil Reframed: Television and Internet Fiction Post-2011." Under contract with the University Press of Florida, "Brazil Reframed" analyzes television and Internet fiction emerging out of Brazil's changing mediascape. Situating a selection of representative works within the conjecture Professor Carter refers to as the Pay-TV Law Era, the book explores a field-wide challenge to TV Globo's long- established hegemony and the resulting shifts in the way the nation is symbolically imagined.
