OLIVEIRA, Terezinha. Reflections on the Sucupira Reform and Letters from D. Dinis: is a dialogue about the university in history possible?. Sér.-Estud. [online]. 2017, vol.22, n.46, pp.137-154. ISSN 2318-1982.

The purpose of this article is to make an analysis of the relevance of the University in history. For this reason, we take as an example two specific and distinct moments of this Institution, the University Reform of Brazil in 1968, called the Sucupira Reformation, and three Letters of D. Dinis [1261-1325], Portuguese monarch, in the late thirteenth and early fourteenth, which dealt with the birth of the University in Portugal (JANOTTI, 1992; MATTOSO, 1997). These two sets of documents allow us to assert that in the Middle Ages and in Brazil in the second half of the twentieth century this educational institution occupied a central place in the policy of rulers, be it in the Portuguese medieval king or in Costa e Silva, Brazilian president during the military dictatorship. In addition to this set of documents, we will dialogue with intellectuals of the 20th and 21st centuries who research this institution of higher education. Our reflections have as goal to show how the University is a fundamental piece for the socio-cultural development in the two contexts and spaces, as its main purpose is to train people for social interaction. Our theoretical methodological path is the history and history of education, with a strong inclination to the historiographical perspective of the first generation of the Annales School, especially regarding the use of the concepts of permanence and long duration.
