DescriptionThis thesis is dedicated to analyzing the political effects of memories, authoritarianisms and resistance in the present moment when History and Memory are in dispute and clash in battle (of meaning and legitimacy), producing attempts at revisionism, rewriting and reframing the recent Brazilian past. It is dedicated to analyzing these disputes, but also the excesses, erasures, silences, rescues and potentialities of the social and collective memories resulting from the dictatorial period (1964-1985) and their (possible) implications for the establishment of a conservative rising scenario (2015 -2016) and consolidation (2017- 2018) in Brazil. Starting from some constitutive elements of the Brazilian social formation, highlighting the history of pacts and agreements that maintain the privileges of national elites at different times through the manipulation of stories and memories, analyzes the effects of the authoritarian period in the process of “democratic opening and transition”. From the Federal Constitution of 1988 and the slow and partial measures taken by the Brazilian State in relation to Transitional Justice, it develops three main vectors that orbit the object of research - the National Truth Commission (CNV), the 2013 manifestations and the 2015 and 2016 manifestations. These three vectors establish the conditions to analyze and understand the relationship between the authoritarian legacies and inheritances of the civil-military dictatorship for the establishment of the current authoritarian-conservative project that started to concretely include the militaristic factor and other authoritarian and fascist contours in the unfolding of the national political situation. These questions converge to the central hypothesis of the investigation that concerns the potential of social memories to face (or accept) barbarism and authoritarian setbacks that shape the unstable and uncertain Brazilian political scenario.
