Scope and Contents Note

The collection documents the leftist Brazilian labor and political movements occurring during the 1970's and 1980's. The collection spans the years 1977-1995, with the bulk of the materials being from 1980-1990. The geographic areas covered include Acre, Bahia, Goiás, Minas Gerais, Pará, Pernambuco, Rio de Janeiro, Rio Grande do Norte, and São Paulo. Beyond these regions covered, some of the documents are "national documents," signifying that these were oftentimes national movements. Others are informative documents that highlight national or regional events and movements.

Many of the documents are "internal documents," originally created solely for members of the groups or allies of the groups. Some documents were prepared for conferences or congresses; others were documenting debates or the final write-ups of the debates. The collection also contains pamphlets, flyers, and other ephemera that cover a wide variety of groups including student movements, agricultural movements, worker movements, and other leftist movements.

Overall, the materials are in relatively good shape, though the oldest items have discoloration and are flaking and torn common to materials of that age from Brazil, especially the newspaper examples. The items in boxes 1-5 are arranged roughly in chronological order. Boxes 7-8 are considered oversized. The Newspapers, Pamphlets, and Handouts sub-series is alphabetical by Brazilian states, starting with Acre and ending with São Paulo.

Series 1: The Political Parties series includes materials from various political parties and movements. The political parties covered in the collection include Partido dos Trabalhadores (PT), Partido Comunista Brasileiro (PCB), and Partido Democrático Trabalhista (PDT). The labor movements include Central Única dos Trabalhadores (CUT), Confederação Nacional dos Trabalhadores na Agricultura (CONTAG), and Conferência Nacional das Classes Trabalhadoras (CONCLAT).

Series 2: The National Politics series includes materials from various national political campaigns and elections. It also includes materials involving the drafting and adopting of the national Constitution.

Series 3: The Labor series includes materials from various labor organizations and movements. It also includes materials about labor strikes and human rights. The collection includes newspapers, pamphlets, journals, magazines, journal articles, clippings, and photographs. They document political parties and issues related to leftist movements and ideologies. Some notable titles include "Tribuna Metalúrgica," "O Trabalho," "Jornal dos Trabalhadores," "Folha Bancária," "Autonomia," "Voz da Unidade," "Em Tempo," "O São Paulo," and "Movimento."

Series 4: The Research Groups series includes research materials from various research groups involved in the study of Brazilian socioeconomics, specifically about labor.

Series 5: The Research Materials series includes academic materials, articles, and other writings about Brazilian socioeconomics, politics, and labor.
