The public is invited to a three-day international symposium, "The Cultures of Dictatorship: Historical Reflections on the Brazilian Golpe of 1964," to be held at the University of Maryland, College Park, and Archives II, October 14-16, 2004. Marking the fortieth anniversary of the coup d'etat that instituted twenty-one years of military rule in Brazil, and began a wave of military coups throughout Latin America, the symposium brings together US and Brazilian historians (and historically-minded scholars in other disciplines) to share innovative research on modern military rule in Latin America, and to consider the particular contribution that historical research can make to the study of the cultures of military regimes.
James N. Green (Brown University) will deliver the keynote address, "While the Brazilian Generals Ruled: Rethinking Political, Social, and Cultural Assumptions about Life under an Authoritarian Regime"
Precirculated papers available at the symposium website.
All events are free and open to the public. Preregistration is not necessary.
