In the last 20 years a serie of researches have tried to organize the historical documents of the History of Brazil during the colonial and emperial periods. This is a cruzade, an enterprise of many professors and academics around the world for decades.
The Institutes for Latin America Studies in european universities, the museuns and archives are the real connections to be successful in this enterprise.
Even if many efforts took place in the past, most of those tries of organizing all the knowledges possible in one place was until now a difficult target to reach.
To go over this intangible barrier of neglet, lack off access, lack of interest of official institutions were the first problem to be solved.
After getting the oportunity of working for the former Ministry of Culture of Brazil in Austria, I decided to create this space, free of charges, to post all the knowledge and resources get in the last 20 years of hard work and fair concious of the need of a substancial knowledge of our expatriated history to be possible rewrite it in proper bases the many ignired contents that make part of a civilization.
Institutionalyze and Promote a real interface of mecanisms of interaction between students, professors and researchers of those institutes and brazilian cultural equipaments is an urge and urgent aspect of this new partnership that I want to create, overcoming past failed tries and using technology to sublime the black dots of comunication.
