Master and Doctorate in History.
The PPGH has as its concentration area History, Power and Social Practices, affirming itself as a platform for the production of historiographical knowledge in different perspectives and approaches. The definition of this concentration area came from the formation of the teaching staff, from its maturation through qualification efforts and from the activities performed in teaching, research and extension. The Tempos Históricos Journal (Qualis B1 (2016)), maintained by the Program, a vehicle that contributes to disseminating the PPGH at the national and international levels, is also noteworthy. The PPGH articulates research around the relationships between History, Power and Social Practices, affirming itself as a platform for the production of historiographic knowledge in different perspectives and approaches.
CULTURE AND IDENTITIES
Syllabus: This line includes studies on culture understood as a place of construction of meanings, in its various forms of expression, problematizing different practices and languages. It proposes to study the construction processes of subjectivities and identities (gender, ethnic, national, regional, class, among others), the production of memories, as well as the investigation of the constitution of spaces and territories, considering experiences that define and redefine borders and temporalities.
STATE AND POWER
Syllabus: The line aims at the study of social practices related to the State and Power. The State is understood in a broad sense, encompassing diverse aspects of the relationships established between social agents. Power is exercised not only within political society but also within the most varied organizations and corporations of civil society. The exercise of power and the production of hegemony encompass, therefore, diverse spheres, such as gestation and affirmation, criticism and opposition of social projects, intellectual elaboration and party politics, the organization of different groups and social classes, the constitution of private apparatus of hegemony, the management and dissemination of ideologies and social projects.
WORK AND SOCIAL MOVEMENTS
Syllabus: This line seeks to investigate historical processes that have taken place in Brazil and Latin America, in relation to the various practices of subjects, both collective and individual, in their various articulations with the social, in the production and transformation of labor relations and institutions. Topics of interest in this line are social movements, party and union organizations, the daily practices of workers in the countryside and in the city, and the construction of senses and meanings by and about these subjects, as a social practice in historiography and in memories.
About the Program
PPGH started its activities with the Master's Course in History, authorized by CAPES through the Opinion APCN 1836, of 15/09/2005. The elaboration of the proposal was based on the History Undergraduate Course (authorized by the CEE Opinion nº 101/1980 and by the Federal Decree nº 85.056/1980), starting in 1980 the institutional investment in the qualification of the teaching staff and in the verticalization. The interinstitutional partnerships were also of paramount importance, highlighting the implementation of the UFF/Unioeste Interinstitutional Program, through which the Universidade Federal Fluminense offered a Graduate Course in Social History, at the Masters and Doctorate levels. The Program began its activities in July 2000, approving, in the first selection, 16 students for the master's degree and 09 for the doctorate. In March 2001, another 11 students joined the program, who passed the second selection, made exclusively for the Master's degree. The total number of students enrolled in the UFF/Unioeste Interinstitutional Program was 36 (thirty-six), with 27 masters and 7 doctors, of whom 3 were Unioeste professors and are currently part of the PPGH faculty, composed of a total of 18 professors (data from April 2019).
In 2008, the first PPGH masters were graduated. Until April 2019, the Program has already trained more than 150 masters. In turn, in December 2014, the Doctoral Course in History was authorized by CAPES. The activities of the course began in the second half of 2015 and the Program has already been successful in training a doctor.
