Marcelo Alves De Paula Lima is a Brazilian historian who holds a Bachelor’s degree in History from Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (UFMG). His bachelor paper tackles the Brazilian integralismo, a Brazilian fascist-inspired movement active in the 1930es.
In 2017, he achieved his master’s degree in History at Universidade de São Paulo (USP), having written a dissertation that compared Brazilian integralismo and German national-socialism. Throughout his master’s years, Marcelo was a fellow researcher from Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo (FAPESP), besides earning a scholarship to do a five-month research in the Institute of Contemporary History of Munich (Institut für Zeitgeschichte – München).
After finishing his master’s degree, Marcelo had a one semester experience as a substitute professor at Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, where he taught two courses: one on anti-Semitic ideas in Brazil, and the other on fascist ideas and movements in South America and Europe in the interwar period. Afterwards, he had an enriching one-year experience as a high school teacher in a Brazilian private school, where he taught on World History.
Marcelo is now interested in the History of Brazilian foreign policy. He is currently a Ph.D. candidate in History and Political Cultures at Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais. His doctoral thesis deals with the foreign policy of the Brazilian Military Regime. His main concern is to understand to which extent has anti-communism influenced the relations between the Brazilian Military Regime and the government of Chiang Kai-shek in the Republic of China. His primary sources are diplomatic documents sent by the Brazilian embassy in Taipei from 1964 to 1974.
Marcelo has two book chapters and nine papers published in different academic journals related mainly to themes such as fascist ideas in interwar Brazil, Brazilian authoritarian nationalism, and Brazilian foreign policy. Furthermore, he was a member of four undergraduate examination boards, both in History and International Relations programs, besides being invited twice to be a peer reviewer in a History journal.
At Habib, amongst many courses, he will also be teaching a course on Contemporary History of Latin America. He is also interested in comparative approaches between military regimes in Latin America and Asia.
