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 fosters the development of scholarly work in language studies by bringing together a wide range of scholars with diverse backgrounds, thus promoting high level transdisciplinary postgraduate education. The program articulates research-related activities and education at graduate and postgraduate levels to enhance the training of higher education teachers while also promoting theory building and reflectivity in the field.
