Room 1, CES | Alta

Comments: Teresa Cunha (CES)


Outreach management was conceived from Popular Education, based on Paulo Freire, having as reference 'The pedagogy of the Oppressed', 'Outreach or Communication' and other references. Boaventura de Sousa Santos’ ecologies of knowledges and Renato Dagnino’s idea that research starts with outreach were also considered. The UFSM Social Incubator project was formulated and initiated based on these assumptions and on the demand of groups historically excluded from universities. This seminar describes, analyses and discusses these assumptions, in order to cast another look at the public university and its outreach practices in Brazil.
