Résumé de la présentation
« For so long, Brazil has been known as the country of the future. The past was not perceived as a foreign land, but as a forgettable one. It seems to be only the path to the present, which, by its turn, is driven to the becoming. This mentality also collaborated to a popular saying that we are a country “without memory”. We should put both affirmatives in perspective, mainly because of our tough current days, which are revealing a range of dealings with a deep crisis, that embraces past, present, and future in Brazilian society. This talk intends to address some theoretical and methodological considerations, doing an overview of the Memory Studies in Brazil from a historical perspective to the current state of the art of this field. »
