Study and Research Groups

ANIME – Anthropology, Imaginary and Education

Leader: Prof Julvan Moreira de Oliveira

he group focuses on the consolidation of a hermeneutical symbolic educational reflection of anthropological nature, thus becoming a highly pedagogical experience for the understanding of the human phenomenon. In that way, the group does not focus only on anthropological studies of school, but on changing how we look at them. Local knowledge, ethical-cultural diversity, the complexity and subjectivity on the everyday life receive our attention, meaning we cast another look on the educational practice, on this transitional dialectic between organizational culture and emergent cultures.




Leader: Prof Cristhiane Carneiro Cunha Flor/ Prof Rita Reis/ Prof Ana Carolina

The study objects are: a) initial and continuous training of science and chemistry teachers; b) pedagogical practice of teaching; c) processes of teaching and learning science. The group has the participation of researchers, teachers of Basic Education and postgraduate students and  has contributed to the development of research projects in the Education in Science area.



CRONOS – History Teaching, Memory and School Knowledge

Leader:Prof. Sonia Miranda/ Prof. Fabiana Rodrigues de Almeida

Memory, in its dynamics between remembrance and oblivion, has been fixed in contemporaneity as a central element before the fast transformation and fugacity of the present, in a way that it collaborates to the new processes of constitution of individual and social identities that affect without distinction the adult’s and the child’s universes.



EDUCCO – Study Group on Education, Culture and Communication

Leader:Prof. Eliane Borges

The group is for studies and researches on the Education and Communication fields, emphasizing the cultural and social aspects that relate to them. In our investigations, Education is understood as a practice founded in Communication and Communication is studied in its educational potentiality. The focus of our questions is the relation between Communication and Information Technology and Education. In that way, the topics of interest for the group are relations between the media and childhood, media and education and distance education.

Leader: Prof. Marcus Leonardo Bomfim Martins
