LANDAETA SEPULVEDA, Romané. The Past: Reflections between history and memory from the Southern Cone. Rev. austral cienc. soc., 2018, no.34, p.95-116. ISSN 0718-1795.

The text examines the relations between History and Memory, through the analysis of the History of Present Time, political transitions to democracy, historical memory and oblivion. For this, it analyzes the theoretical methodological approaches that have made possible reflections on the recent past in South America. It explores debates around political violence committed by states. It focuses on the problems of the historical memory of societies whose recent past is linked to the systematic violation of human rights. It analyzes the Latin American context by problematizing concepts of memory, history and oblivion in the light of the processes of political transition to democracy.

Keywords: History; memory; oblivion; Political violence; Transitions to democracy.
