Nina Schneider holds a PhD in History from the University of Essex, United Kingdom. She specializes in contemporary Brazilian History, processes of historical redress and accountability in Latin America, politics of memory, and propaganda. Her new project investigates Brazil’s politics of historical redress from an entangled perspective. It pays special attention to the recently instated Brazilian Truth Commission and the dynamics between civil society, different state agents and the international community. Her recent publications include: ‘Breaking the Silence of the Military Regime: New Politics of Memory in Brazil?’, in the Bulletin of Latin American Research, and ‘The Supreme Court’s recent Verdict on the Amnesty Law: Impunity in Post-authoritarian Brazil’, in the European Review of Latin American and Caribbean Studies.
