Abstract

This thesis investigates the narratives of Brazilian exiles, who became "cooperative of the revolution" in People's Republic of Mozambique, from its independence, in 1975, until the mid 1980s. The memories of their trajectories, their routes of dislocation and the social processes, in which they believe they have been involved, have been rebuilt in oral histories. I try to illuminate the categories and assumptions that are present in their common view of the past, that I beheld among the interviewees. In accordance with this approach, I describe its multiple international displacements, the network of connections and social relations, which allowed them, as well as the assumptions that support them. I believe that their perceptions about these issues are connected to the identification of their past belonging in a social and symbolic transnational field, built by political conflict of the Cold War (AU)
