James N. Green, professor of Brazilian history and culture, met with members of the Brazilian National Truth Commission in Brazil Nov. 21, 2012, to discuss documents in the U.S. National Archive that relate to the proceedings of the commission. Among the seven members of the Truth Commission is Paulo Sérgio Pinheiro, adjunct professor of International Studies at Brown, who served as the secretary for human rights during the government of Fernando Henrique Cardoso. In May 2012, Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff appointed the commission to investigate human rights violations committed during the military dictatorship that ruled the country from 1964 to 1985. Green is a member of the Advisory Board of the Brazilian National Archive Memórias Reveladas Project that is organizing documents on the military regime. He is also author of We Cannot Remain Silent: Opposition to the Brazilian Military Dictatorship. The book relies heavily on documents found in Washington archives related to the questions that the Truth Commission is currently investigating. Green will head a working group for the Truth Commission that will prepare dossiers about the Brazilian military government’s harassment of new social movements, including the gay and lesbian, feminist, and black movements, that emerged in the late 1970s during the second decade of military rule.
