> RESEARCH TOPIC 1: IMMATERIAL CAPITAL: PRODUCTION AND CIRCULATION OF KNOWLEDGE
SCIENCES AND KNOWLEDGE CENTER: THE EXPERIENCE OF CREATING LIVE MUSEUMS IN THE AFFIRMATION OF REPRESENTANTIVE KNOWLEDGE AND REPRESENTATION OF THE PEOPLE. - Coordinator: Prof. Dr. Alfredo Wagner
This project is developed within the framework of the Amazonian Social Cartography Laboratory (PNCSA), based at the State University of Amazonas and linked to the Interdisciplinary Postgraduate Program in Human Sciences, and aims to establish, in the Amazon, a space of non-formal education, of valorization and popularization of non-formal knowledge. The project houses a network of researchers, scientific institutions and community-based associations, and aims at the dissemination of scientific knowledge, as a localized culture, of a social tradition embedded in actions. Drawing on the experience of countless traditional communities organizing their own memoirs and their intrinsic knowledge about nature through units called museums or centers, exposing their forms of classification, by which the selection criteria were elaborated. The previous experience of the community was considered essential to compose the notion of the living museum. The possibility of scientific knowledge combined with traditional knowledge explains the relevance of this project, by electing communities as the locus of an academic intervention. Eight communities were selected, 4 of which were located in Amazonas and 4 in Maranhão, in order to implant scientific knowledge articulating units with traditional knowledge called Centers of Knowledge and Living Museums.

SITUATED LEARNING: PRODUCTION AND REPRODUCTION OF TRADITIONAL PRACTICES AND KNOWLEDGE- Coordinator: Prof. Dr. Nelissa Peralta Bezerra
Western-style education treats knowledge from the individual point of view and bases education on the idea of ​​transmitting information between the teacher and the student. Ethnographies on learning among traditional populations show processes of education as an interpretation of the context, without formal separation between the production and reproduction of knowledge. Children and young people are initiated in the practices from their own corporal engagement in the environment. Knowledge is thus produced and reproduced simultaneously through the interaction between the generations. The objective of the project is to study the construction of practices and traditional knowledge resulting from the engagement with the environment in the western Amazon, mainly in fishing activities. The project also investigates the interaction between knowledge regimes based on different protocols, assumptions and practices, as well as the results of this interaction in sustainable land management projects.

AMAZONIAN CULTURE IN FORMAL AND NON-FORMAL EDUCATIONAL CONTEXTS - Coordinator: Prof. Dr. Edilza Laray de Jesus
This research project deals with education in the context of culture, based on theoretical matrices and investigative practices from interdisciplinary fields that involve literary studies, history, sociology, philosophy and education. The research carried out under this project studies the phenomena of knowledge and education as culturally produced praxis, at the same time as cultural modifiers. It is based on a body of interdisciplinary knowledge of the educational processes in the Amazon, based on sociodiversity, the environment and the modes of production of existence having as object: representations, myths, imaginaries, conceptions, languages ​​and identities, socio- social and political formation of the subject, taking the realities of the region, its social agents and its institutions as the central focus for the production of studies and knowledge that will strengthen the sciences, educational policies and educational and cultural practices.

INVENTING AUTONOMIES IN THE MIDDLE SOLIMÕES - Coordinator: Prof. Dr. Guilherme Gitahy de Figueiredo
In recent years, the Middle Solimões has conquered a number of technical, scientific and educational institutions, such as the Center for Higher Studies of Tefé of the University of the State of Amazonas, founded in 2001. It has also had growing access to new technologies, such as mobile telephony and the Internet, despite the large gap in relation to the metropolis because it is not an attractive market and does not have effective public policies to make people¿s rights universal. Innovations combine with traditional institutions and technologies which often ignore their vitality. This project develops research on institutional and technological colonialism, as well as the processes of resistance and appropriation by the subjects of the region. The relationship of this research with extension is through the project "Laboratory of Free Communication", which has facilitated processes of appropriation in the field of communication technologies in partnership with social movements.

CONTEMPORARY THEATRALITIES AND THEIR PEDAGOGICAL INTERFACES - Coordinator: Prof. Dr. Eneila Almeida dos Santos
This project is interested in the practical and theoretical field of the Performing Arts in interfaces with other languages ​​of the art, such as: Music, Visual Arts, Literature, Dance, and their studies and pedagogical challenges. The research in these interfaces and relationships will allow the experience of practical and theoretical experiences in the academic context aiming at the promotion of the artistic quality, the amplitude and the diffusion of these experiences. The works carried out in this project cover theoretical results (publications, seminars and congresses) and practical results (scenic montages, theatrical shows, performances and artistic festivals). It is characterized as a space for the intellectual, artistic, creation, experimentation and production of the researchers of the project.

> RESEARCH TOPIC 2: CRITIQUE, INTERPRETATION AND THE HISTORY OF ART FORMS
ARCHEOLOGY, HERITAGE AND CULTURE: THE PLACE OF OUR MEMOIRS - Coordinator: Prof. Dr. Tatiana de Lima Pedrosa Santos
Historical Archeology is a recent modality in archaeological science. It arises in the USA, from the New Archeology movement of the 1960s, highlighting a sense of dissatisfaction among archaeologists and their concern for the object alone. Thus, it was necessary to focus actions less on objects and their descriptions and more on their history and anthropology (FUNARI, 2005). In this way, historical archeology offers us a range of possibilities for the study of our most recent past, often opening up hitherto unexplored research areas: this is the case of architectural material culture and museum material culture. Through certain objects, we can approach certain convivialities, stories and memoirs that are often forgotten, since these objects go unnoticed in our daily lives. This research project seeks to reflect and problematize on categories of different objects within that varied range that is the material culture so that we perceive its social, symbolic and cultural relevance. Methodologically, the studies contained in this project are based on Historical Archeology and are developed with the support of historical documents, oral sources, collections of museums, in special collections of the Museum and Archeology Laboratories, as well as the architectural heritage of the city of Manaus.

SOCIAL HISTORY OF ART, CULTURE AND LITERATURE IN THE AMAZON - Coordinator: Profa. Dra. Cristiane da Silveira
This research project privileges research on images / analysis / panoramas about the Amazon in different temporalities. It has as a starting point multiple artistic, literary and imagistic productions built over time and that have consolidated as expressions, forming social thought about the region and evidences the socio-cultural and historical construction of the Amazon. It also seeks to understand multiple identities of the individuals and social groups that inhabit the state of Amazonas and contributes to the academic debate in order to demystify the knowledge about this part of Brazil, which for a long period was told in a way to complement the saga of colonizers. With this, we seek perspectives that construct meanings for experiences and singular experiences of subjects that are excluded from the official sayings, which postulate a history of the homogeneous and aseptic Amazon.

INTERDISCIPLINARY PERSPECTIVES ON THE CITY - Coordinator: Prof. Dr. Geraldo Jorge Tupinambá do Valle
The research project intends to carry out studies on the city, with an interdisciplinary approach, based on the understanding of its constructed spaces (public spaces, architectural ensembles and surroundings), considering the categories of city seen, city not seen, imagined, marked, desired and lived, dialoguing with the fields of human and social sciences, seeking to raise data and propose discussions about the city as a human space, in its cultural and social representations and its possibilities as a curricular theme for Basic Education, considering the formation of teachers. The research will be developed in three distinct and complementary moments: survey, field research and analysis. In the first moment, a bibliographical survey will be carried out on the space to be researched, as well as the iconographic survey (images of photographs and postcards, drawings, paintings of space in different periods) and documentary (projects, plans, reports of public works and others). In parallel, the field surveys will be carried out, which will comprise of the description of the space (considering the aspects: public, path, layout, furniture, landscaping, monuments, surroundings, sounds, smells, rhythms, identity, humor) and the description of the use of the space, considering the different moments of the day / night and the different days of the week. Field research will be conducted as interviews and questionnaires with administrators of spaces and users, as well as photographic records. The data collected from the field research will be analyzed to compose a socio-cultural map of the analyzed space, presenting it as a theoretical-methodological possibility for classroom training activities.

BRAZILIAN MUSIC: DIVERSITY AND INTERDISCIPLINARITY - Coordinator: Bernardo Thiago Paiva Mesquita
Research into music as a multidimensional and interdisciplinary construction, considering its diversity and complexity in the Brazilian reality. The political dimension, the relevance of popular culture, indigenous music and immigrant populations, music in the face of gender relations and the contradictions of the music industry. Regarding the local reality, we seek to investigate the history of the formation of popular music in the cities of the Amazon with a focus on their socio-cultural diversity, language, memory and musical practice. To emphasize the importance of the history of local popular music as a factor of cultural affirmation. To promote the field of reflection about the popular culture of the Amazon, opening the possibility for musical ethnography, oral and written history.

THE PORTUGUESE PRESENCE IN THE AMAZON - Coordinator: Prof. Dr. Veronica Prudente Costa
The objective of the present project is to investigate the literary production constructed from narratives of Portuguese authors who wrote about or in the Amazon during the colonial and postcolonial period. We started with authors such as: Henrique João Wilkens, Alexandre Rodrigues Ferreira, Francisco Gomes de Amorim and Ferreira de Castro, among others. The theoretical section to be used covers the interdisciplinary dialogue between Literature, History, Sociology and Anthropology with regard to the specificities of the study of the Amazonian cultures in contact with the European foreigner. We focus on the possibility of mapping literature from the Amazon, observing the local literary production and its origins in an interlocution with the eyes of the traveler or the foreigner regarding the cultures of Panamazonia in comparison with the already established canon of literary historiography, linked to the discussion about the multiple national identities that formed Brazil.

BETWEEN THE ENDS OF TWO CENTURIES: PORTUGUESE LITERATURE AND THE INTER-ART DIALOGUE
In this investigative project, we propose to approach texts of poets and writers that left significant work, but have received little attention from the critical studies of Portuguese Literature and Portuguese Language Literatures, in the period between the last two decades of the nineteenth century and the first two of the twentieth century. To these we add the last of the twentieth century, to see how late modernity brings to the literary context other problems of all types, which reflect the changes that operate in the contemporary world. The point of departure is the idea of ruin, a privileged allegorical procedure that manifests itself in the literature of decadent features, for which the concepts of allegory, history and narration are key pieces. In this case, the objective is to verify how the turn of the century movements and the consequent images that populated the "crepuscular imagination" are manifested and guide the production of this period, creating the basis on which modernity establishes itself in Portuguese Literature, showing that the work of Mário de Sá-Carneiro, for example, is tributary. Extending its spectrum, we intend to question the relationship between literature and other arts, starting with the literary text ¿poetry or narrative¿, an object sensitive to the intervention of other artistic languages (the vanguards, for example), opening space to operate the inter-semiotic relationship.

> RESEARCH TOPIC 3: SPACES, MEMOIRS AND SOCIAL CONFIGURATIONS
SOCIALCARTOGRAPHY: QUILOMBOLAS OF BRASIL - Coordinator: Prof. Dr. Alfredo Wagner Berno de Almeida
This project is developed within the framework of the Social Cartography Laboratory of the Amazon (PNCSA), with headquarters at the State University of Amazonas and linked to the Interdisciplinary Postgraduate Program in Human Sciences, and is aimed at mapping the registered, certified Quilombola communities with the Technical Report of Identification and Delimitation-RTID, claimed by the quilombola social movements and in "intersection" with conservation units. The mapping, to be carried out based on the methodology of social cartography, already tested with other segments of traditional peoples and communities, besides generating subsidies for public policies, is an important tool for capacity building for institutional strengthening and for the empowerment of communities. The mapping carried out with the methodology of social cartography, based on the protagonism of the communities, respects and enhances the knowledge they already have about their territories, constituting an important tool for the processes of sustainable management of available resources and accessibility to public policies .

SYMBOLIC DIMENSIONS OF POWER RELATIONSHIPS IN THE AMAZON - Coordinator: Prof. Dr. Gimima Beatriz Melo da Silva
The Symbolic Dimensions of Power Relations in Amazonia Project proposes a critical approach to processes related to the issue of power relations in contexts where issues pertaining to political participation, or lack of it, on the part of the various social actors, corroborate the establishment of power relationships in which the local context follows guidelines guided by global agendas. These relationships are based on scenarios that are designed within the framework of establishing institutional relations as well as social dynamics that promote impact to the patterns of relationship between space and society in the Amazon, built in modernity from a link between the local level and the global level. This scenario raises the question of the perspective in which the different aspects of the exercise of power in modernity reflect a heterogeneity in the dynamics of society from the search for more adjusted strategies to reach the goals of those who exercise it.

THE SOCIAL CONSTRUCTION OF THE MIGRANT AND REFUGEE - Coordinator: Prof. Dr. Lucia Marina Puga Ferreira
This project aims to build a picture of migratory processes in the Amazon, particularly emphasizing international migrations to the region, including the issue of refuge. The central issues are: Human Rights (universal) X Citizenship paradox (linked to the National State); the undocumented status; the claim of rights and the processes of organization; possibilities of insertion in the labor market; the creation of new relations of friendship and solidarity; the agencies constructing categories on immigrants (state, churches, foreign organizations, international institutions ...) and the agency of the subjects; the construction of a collective and individual memoir and the creation of imagined communities.

CULTURAL HERITAGE, ETHNIC IDENTITY AND CREATIVE ACTIVITIES OF THE INDIGENOUS COMMUNITIES IN THE CITY OF MANAUS-AM - Coordinator: Prof. Dr. Jocilene Gomes da Cruz
The research focuses on the elaboration of cartography of cultural heritage and creative activities of indigenous communities in the city of Manaus, Amazonas. In the research process, the social agents, the built networks, the social trajectories of the indigenous cultural heritage that circulate in the context of the city as an alternative of cultural promotion or income generation are evidenced. One of the ways perceived as a link between tradition and innovation is the investment in creative activities, which are carried out by ethnic groups as alternatives for valuing culture, in order to guarantee the survival of indigenous families and cultures in the cities. In the present research, the economic use of diacritical elements and / or cultural heritage, in thesis - updated, varied or re-signified - is considered a creative activity.

SPEECH, CULTURE AND IDENTITY IN THE NEW LANDSCAPES OF CONTEMPORANEITY - Coordinator: Prof. Dr. Neiva Maria Machado Soares
The increasing fragmentation of the identity that is reflected in the discourse and culture is noticeable in the contemporary world (HALL, 2014, GIDDENS, 1991, HARVEY, 2011). In this proposal, the interest turns mainly to themes related to the impact of modernization and to the affected actors. Thus, the research project aims to focus on multidisciplinary issues that involve representations of identity revealed in new discourses and cultural impacts. It is understood that culture translates into different signs that also lead to the identity of those who represent them and the discourse reveals the social practices of actors that interact and are influenced by social contexts (FAIRCLOUGH, 2008, 2012). The proposal came initially from the realization that forms of glocal representation (global x local, KRESS, 2007) are increasingly present in the discourses of multiple actors, repercussions on broader social issues such as language, religion, art, work and parties.
