Groups


Formed in 2007 under the coordination of Professor Luiz Barros Montez, the group brings together academics and students interested in researching language use in historiographical contexts. In other words, it congregates researchers working on problems concerning the representation of History and historiography, that is, questions referring both to discourse and ideology that are amalgamated in language. All of the group's activities are implemented in interdisciplinary fashion, taking from the fact that it is epistemologically based on two clear-cut areas that are well defined in the context of human communication and its symbolic exchanges: on the one hand, the field of Language and Literary Studies; and on the other, studies on Epistemology and Historical Methodology. It houses the research project Discursive depictions of Brazil in the discourse of European travelers in the 18th and 19th centuries.
