Diversias – Grupo de Estudos em Educação, Diversidade e Controvérsias​


Diversias aims to research the teaching of controversial topics in education at its different levels, locations and with the actors involved. The teaching of controversies is pointed out by many authors as fundamental for promoting reflection on the students' daily lives, expand their worldview, recognize differences, overcome prejudices and contribute to the construction of democracy. Thus, our research projects are dedicated to investigating topics such as religion, gender, school conflicts, ethnic-racial relations and conservatism, both in school contexts and in public educational policies. Diversias’ research is sponsored by FAPERJ (the Rio de Janeiro State Research Foundation) (The Rio de Janeiro State Research Foundation) (ARC-2019) and PUC-Rio.
