The repression against teachers in Latin American universities during the dictatorship: UFMG (1964-1969) and UTE (1973-1981) cases.
Based on a comparative analysis of Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (UFMG) and Universidad Técnica del Estado (UTE), this article aims to understand how repression against teachers in both institutions occurred and what their similarities and differences were. The following sources were consulted for this study: the files from the extinct Department of Political and Social Order (DOPS / MG); the Brazilian and Chilean Official Gazette; internal files of from UFMG and UTE; Chilean files of from the Ministry of Public Educación; commissions' reports from both countries; Vicaría de la Solidaridad's files; and interviews conducted by the author and other researchers with former teachers persecuted at the time. The survey reveals that political repression in UTE was more intense than in the UFMG, which relates to the polarization experienced by the society in each country, but also shows that there are some details not often found in the collective memory about the dictartorship.
