Resistances. Journal of the Philosophy of History <p><strong>Resistances (ISSN 2737-6222)</strong>, is a refereed academic journal that publishes two issues per year (January-July and August-December) in Spanish, Portuguese, and English. It is edited by the Centro de Investigaciones en Humanidades y Ciencias Sociales de América Latina (CICSHAL-RELIGACIÓN), a center associated to CLACSO. The journal is inspired by the resistance experience of Dolores Cacuango, who promoted processes of struggle and political participation that allowed great advances in the achievement of the rights of peasants and indigenous people and oppressed sectors of the region. This constitutes a reference to our intention to make visible and revalue a philosophical praxis committed to the historical and social reality.</p> CICSHAL-RELIGACIÓN.

Journal of the Philosophy of History 2737-6222 Transitional Justice comes to the House: different political times, different expectations <p>In Brazil, Transitional Justice is an idea conceived as a possible strategy to establish in the present a break with the presence of the violent past of the military dictatorship in the present. It’s about an idea that moves between the theoretical field, institutional policy, and social movement. In this paper, we intend to revisit the mentions of this term in parliamentary debates between the years 2007 and 2020 to reflect on the meanings evoked at each register of the term. Furthermore, we hope to explore the political trends that marked the use of the term in the different political times that unfolded during this period of little more than a decade.</p> Paula Franco Copyright (c) 2021 Paula Franco 2021-10-23 2021-10-23 2 4 e21058 e21058 10.46652/resistances.v2i4.58 The pandemic and the writing of the History of Present Time <p>This article will discuss some of the theoretical aspects of the practice of the historian of the Present Time, problematizing the method, the sources and the narrative of the pandemic scenario. The article will use theoretical references that help in the understanding of both the writing of history and its historiographical practice of the Present Time, seeking to demonstrate the importance and the difficulties of the work of the historian who, in addition to taking into account that the phenomena of appearance are only the expression of these determinations, manifested in most cases politically and culturally, and that can be investigated by the History of the Present Time.</p> Michel Silva Copyright (c) 2021 2021-10-16 2021-10-16 2 4 e21059 e21059 10.46652/resistances.v2i4.59
