Resisting, denouncing, tiring, sometimes becoming indignant, most of the time we are living the final moments of Brazilian public Universities, specially in the area known as Social and Human Sciences. In the neoliberal ideal of minimum State, the resources and financings that have been allocated in public college-education in our country are, each year, more insignificant. It interests that, in a same public university, the several centers, institutes and departments ferociously struggle among themselves for the amount of money repassed in crumbs and coming as almses. The teams, the professors, the students compete against each other for the rare financings. These are the comments I bring in this text as introductory notes on the issue of Brazilian Universities today, specially concerned with devastation that, the so called "humanity" area has been suffering in Post-Graduation courses.
