Milagre, comemorações e consenso ditatorial no Brasil, 1972

Janaina Martins Cordeiro


This paper aims to analyze the construction processes of the social consensus around the Brazilian dictatorship after 1964. Considering that the consensus is a fickle, plural and diversified process, I start from the assumption that its nature throughout the years did not remain stable, acquiring specific characteristics in different moments. Therefore, in this present work I will specifically address the nature of the social pact during the early 70’s, when the General Emílio Garrastazu Médici was the current president. To do so, I took as a reference the civic events to celebrate the 150 years of the Independence of Brazil that occurred between April and September of 1972.
