Voices from the harbour; Memory and oral history would be the title of this book in English. It is a collection of well researched essays by academics / researchers who co-operated in a research project entitled Memória e história dos bairros do Rio de Janeiro ('Memory and history of Rio de Janeiro's suburbs'), which formed part of the 'Memory and Space' research field initiated by the Federal University of the State of Rio de Janeiro, Uni-Rio (specifically in the History Department and Centre of Human Sciences). The research team collected testimonials of current and former inhabitants of three of Rio's harbour suburbs (Saúde, Gamboa and Santo Cristo). From 1998, researchers from the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE), of the State University of Rio de Janeiro (UERJ), of the Federal Fluminense University (UFF) and of the Centre for History and Diplomatic Documentation (CHDD) of the Ministry of External Relations joined the project. This book is the result of this joint project. It comprises 11 chapters in a true interdisciplinary co-operation effort, sweeping from history, sociology, anthropology, geography, to architecture, town planning, information science and museology.
