60 Years after the Military Coup

A Critical Remembering of Military Rule in Brazil

The event “60 Years after the Military Coup: A Critical Remembering of Military Rule in Brazil,” organized on 14 March by our Brazilian Studies program, provided an opportunity for collective reflection on Brazil’s military dictatorship.

The contemporary importance of memory was explored through Rebecca Atencio’s (Tulane University) analysis. Paulo Santos Lopes and Rildete Alves Rodrigues shared their life stories as Brazilian citizens, offering insights into the brutality of the dictatorship and their experiences of exile in Denmark.

The event concluded with a performance by Laura Leite Drachmann, guiding the audience through the melodies of significant Brazilian songs.
