General Information

Welcome to Postgraduate Program in Linguistics (PPGEL) at Ufes

  • The Applied Linguistics launches a transdisciplinary look at objects and data of linguistic, discursive, and educational nature. The field requires an investigative look in which the subjects are in interaction through the language, in the most diverse contexts (educational, professional, media, legal, etc.). AL also comprises the dimension of the complex relationship between social practices and linguistic-discursive practices. Within this research horizon, the teaching and learning of languages, translation practices, media and technological contexts, issues related to multiculturalism, plurilingualism, bilingual education, among others are part of AL studies.

  • This line focuses on projects related to theories of text and discourse. It covers the diversity of theoretical and methodological instruments in the treatment of issues related to textuality and textualization processes, in the oral and written modalities and to questions related to the construction of discourse, seen from the perspective of pragmatics and French discourse analysis.

  • This research line focuses on projects related to Functionalism of the Portuguese language, regarding the following aspects: its units, constitution levels, relations, structures, and formalizations.

The Postgraduate Program in Linguistics (PPGEL) is based at the Center for Humanities and Natural Sciences of the Federal University of Espírito Santo. The Master’s Degree in Language Studies (launched in 2006) and the Doctorate degree (started in 2016) aim to:

  • Promote the improvement of scholarly work in Language Studies;
  • Offer qualification for professionals in higher education;
  • Articulate research-related activities and education, at undergraduate and postgraduate levels in order to expand the research groups/centers;
  • Share ongoing research, by hosting regional, national and international events (seminars, conferences, round tables, etc.).

The Postgraduate Program in Linguistcs (PPGEL) was accredited in 2006 by the Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior (CAPES), the Brazilian official accreditation agency for postgraduate degrees. Since then, it has prepared professionals to teach and carry out research in Language Studies, fostering theory building and reflectivity in the field.
PPGEL initially covered two research areas – Descriptive and Analytic Language Studies and Text and Discourse Studies. In 2012, Applied Linguistics was also added as a research area, comprising research on language related problems, as well as on language education.
In 2016, the Ph.D. in Language Studies was accreditted by CAPES.
