Research Groups and Projects

Research Groups PPGCOM-UFC currently has 8 groups, including Research/Study/Investigation Laboratories, registered in the CNPq Directory of Research Groups and linked to professors’ research – which increased from 12 registered researches, in 2013, to 20 in 2019. The Research Groups and Laboratories are open to the public, but are essentially made up of Post-Graduate and Undergraduate students, mainly by PPGCOM-UFC students and students from the Institute of Culture and Art courses – especially Social Communication (Journalism and Publicity and Propaganda), from the Cinema and Audiovisual course, but eventually also by students of the Undergraduate and Postgraduate courses in Letters and Literature, Philosophy, Psychology, History and Sociology at UFC, which reinforces the integration of the Postgraduate with Graduation. These groups have been configured as spaces that go beyond the reading and critical reflection of scientific texts or the analysis and elaboration of research projects, monographs and master[s dissertations and their respective theoretical-methodological paradigms: they have also become spaces for experimentation methodological, academic and artistic event production, bibliographical production and, to a certain extent, fundraising for its own research activities and for other PPGCOM-UFC actions.
