CPDOC - Center for the Research and Documentation of Contemporary Brazilian History






Director: Professor Celso Corrêa Pinto de Castro – PhD, Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ)

CPDOC was established in 1973 to gather documents pertaining to the recent history of Brazil and to develop historical studies, initially using its own collection as the main source of information. Its Guide to the Archives is currently the most important collection of personal archives from public figures in the country, with a total of approximately 1,800,000 documents.

Among other projects developed by CPDOC are the Oral History Program, with statements from people who have been involved in the domestic scene, and the Brazilian Historical and Biographical Dictionary, a reference work on the history of post-1930 Brazil. It offers undergraduate courses and Master and Doctoral Degrees in Social Sciences.
