International agreement between the Federal Fluminense University, the Université du Québec in Montreal and the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul

Professors in charge: Eurydice Figueiredo (UFF), Zilá Bernd (UFRGS), Bernard Andrès (UQAM)

In 2011, Elène Cliche and Rachel Bouvet, both Professors from UQAM visited UFF. They participated in several academic activities, having met with the research groups coordinated by Eurydice Figueiredo and Mary Bernadette Velloso Porto, and presented lectures and conferences. Professor Elène Cliche attended the Colloquium “ Inhabiting and represening the distance between Canadian and Brazilian literary texts”, organized by Professors Maria Bernadette Velloso Porto and Arnaldo Viana, and the text she presented will be published in a book edited by the two Brazilians with material selected from the event. The book is under production. During that period, Professor Matildes Demétrio visited the Canadian university, and there she taught an undergraduate course on Brazilian literature. Collaboration with the Canadians has been one of long duration (the bilateral agreement is 27 years old) and has generated many publications and symposia held over those years.

In addition to the bilateral agreement of UQAM with UFF, the two universities are connected by a larger network, comprised of over 10 Brazilian universities, called BRACERB Network, whose spearhead in Montreal is CERB (Centre d’Études et de Recherches sur le Brésil). Professor Eurydice is also UFF coordinator of this multilateral agreement.

International agreement between the Federal Fluminense University and Università degli Studi di Napoli,”L’Orientale”

Professors in charge: Sonia Torres (UFF), Angelo Trento (USN)

This agreement aims at an inter-institutional academic exchange between research professors in the areas that the two universities have in common. The rotation of the areas / courses is based on the interest in a specific line of research at the time of demand and the availability of colleagues from the same area working on similar interfaces, with theme(s) at each of the institutions, who can receive the colleague from the partner institution. The agreement also encompasses an exchange of graduate students for research activities. (Note: Air fares / daily expenses will not be reimbursed by UFF). Activities such as mini-courses, lectures and internships for UFF doctoral degree students have already been held under this agreement. In 2011, three students coming from “L’Orientale” were received to attend courses for academic credits and to participate in research groups.
