Brasil 200 anos

Dear all

The celebrations of Bicentenial Independence of Brazil is going to take place in many institutions in Austria from january 2022.

To be part of this moment, I am personally writing a book on a brazilian mineralogical collection named Helmreichen zu Brunfeld.

Helmreichem was the head of exploration of Congo Soco Mine for 10 years in the half of XIX century.

His work as naturalist – more a planned trip to study the rocks, but also native culture, started after he stop working to the american company in Mato Grosso.

His journey contributed to the organization of ethnografic, mineralogical and documental holdings in 3 institutions in Austria: Weltmuseum, Academy of Sciences and Naturhistorisches Museum.

The book will organize those collections, creating links between them and, most of all, contribute to the knowledge on austrian collections regarding Brazil.

The book in portuguese language will be launched in 2021. In the second semester I will publish the dates, places and also the speechs on it in Vienna.

Remembering that the financial support and interest in this book can be very important to provide a high level publication, with pictures and, maybe with german version as well.

Happy New Year!

Even if the last year was extremely difficult in many approaches, the Guides of Sources of Brazilian History in Austria is now available at Kindle Store.

There is nothing better than produce, organyze, translate and publish inedit titles during toff times of lockdown.

This is the start of the project Südamerika Links.

In 2021, a new decade, many other books will be finjshed and properly mentioned in this site for students, professores, researches in general.

To get in touch to the unknow part of history can make all difference to interpretate, review, criticize and rewrite History.

Open mind, fellows. TgebHistory is sometimes much more than a time line. History is the net where we conatruct our dialigs with present and future.

Dear students, researchers and America Latina Study Centers in Europe and Americas.

So, next step before posting the first contents is publishing a list of #keywords used to separate #tipology of #documents as well as the #subjects. #Family names will be also a facility to the guest find the most results possible in the site.

I would like to spot on the fact that the Keywords will always be connected to the #title of the posts.

So, when you search for the “names” or for the “type of document” (you can use also both together in the space for search, separing then by a comma). So, as an example, if you write down

Spix, botanic

Results on a Research: Brazilian – Ethnographic/ History Holdings in Austria

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.

The Südamerika Links is a place of restitutiom, repatriation, exchanges and reorganization of Brazilian and south american history.

This is not the first but the effective way to give publicity to documents, manuscripts, articles, books and reports of researches about Sulamerica (Südamerika, South America, América do Sul).

Not only my publications of more than 15 years on Brazilian Historical and Ethnographic researches will be avaiable to access. Also the contribution of the most renowned institutions and academics in Europe who allowed to make this for free and with the wish that new projects on multiple subjects in History field be available to the good of comprehension of our heritage.

Invitations to LAI ( Latin American Institute/VHS) – Vienna, Austria ; University of Vienna, University of Salzburg, University Graz, University Linz, Belvedere Archive, Kunsthistorisches Museum, Academy if Sciences and many other owners of these holdings will be invited to be part of this complex virtual product.
