Study missions and joint publication
The project "Interfaces in Art: Transits without Frontiers - PROCAD-NF" involved 30 professors from the associated institutions - UFPA UFMG and UFBA - and six students from PPGArtes, with the objective of supporting joint research projects using human resources and available in different HEIs, stimulating the cooperation between Postgraduate Programs. In addition to the development of research in a specific theme, the project sought to establish academic cooperation networks in the country to strengthen post-graduate programs as well as to increase intra- and interregional mobility in order to balance the National Post- University graduate.
Other actions: Participation of researchers from other HEIs (national and international) in artistic-scientific events promoted by the PPGArtes; Publication of professors in periodicals of other Graduate Programs; Exchange between research groups of the PPGArtes with other national and foreign HEIs; Students of other municipalities of the interior of the State and of other states have made or are part of the PPGArtes; students from Argentina, Mexico, Uruguay and Colombia were or are students of Program; professors guided Minter and Dinter that ICA maintained with UFBA (Music and Performing Arts). All the professors of the PPGArtes are part of PARFOR / CAPES in degrees in the interior of the State in Visual Arts, Music, Theater and Dance.
Follow-up of graduates:
The policy of accompanying graduates implies the necessity of abandoning the comfortable and traditional position that the social mission and the institutional commitment with the university formation of the citizens end in the act of the diplomacy. This comfortable and poorly constructed convention removes very early from the academy the young professionals and condemns them to a divorce of the coexistence with the improvement and the maturation of the ideas and the reflections, not to mention that the absence of a systematic action of accompaniment of alumni distance University of its important actors, making it difficult to identify their insertion in the market and in society.
It is imperative to introduce, in the different spaces of the Undergraduate Academy, contents and discussions that make it possible to study, understand and respond to the profound and severe technical-scientific and sociocultural transformations that are being dynamically operated in the contemporary world. Therefore, the monitoring of graduates becomes an important source of information.
The policy of accompanying the graduates must necessarily be linked to the mission and the final objectives of the institution, whose actions, programs and projects should seek referential improvement with the graduates, in view of the commitments to the quality of undergraduate education, the constant struggle by the growth of Post-graduation and the expansion of research, as well as the greater involvement with society.
At UFPA, this policy is under discussion within the scope of the Pro-Rector's Office for Undergraduate Education and will count on the participation of the Extension and Research and Postgraduate Pro-Rectorships, and aims at establishing, initially, greater proximity to the Class and public and private institutions as agents of absorption of qualified professionals.
The PPGArtes / UFPA has been an opportunity to strengthen research groups. Several groups were active in 2011-2017: Body Arts and Images; PACA (Researchers in Performing Arts in the Amazon); Cordas da Amazônia Program; GITA (Research Group on Psychophysical Training of Actors); ÁLIF (Art, Anthropology and Performance of Historical and Contemporary Islam); CIRANDA (Anthropological Circle of Dance); Literature and other Arts; Research in Music Education in the Amazon; Music and Identity Research Group in the Amazon; GEAPPA; Contemporary Art in the Amazon; Diluted Edges, GEMPA (Group of studies on music in Pará), TAMBOR (Carnival research group and ethnocenology), Dramatic Studies. Group.
Since the research groups linked to the PPGArtes are spaces for debate and orientation for professors and undergraduate and graduate students (including PIBIC and JTC scholars), they constitute the locus of training for researchers who come from to contribute to the solidification of these groups as more complex center of research.
With the reformulation of the lines of research, the interdisciplinary character (scenic arts, visual arts and music) of Program was reiterated and a better alignment between research lines and research groups was promoted.
