Our project builds on the partnership between the Centre for Globalization and Cultural Studies at the University of Manitoba (directed by Diana Brydon) and the National Curriculum Project in English at the University of Sao Paulo (directed by Walkyria Monte Mor and Lynn Mario de Souza). From this core, we are partners with colleagues at the University of Winnipeg, Glendon College, York University, and the University of Waterloo in Canada and the State University of Mato Grosso do Sul, the Federal University of Alagoas, the Federal University of Sergipe, the Getulio Vargas Foundation, Rio, and APLIEMS (Association of English Teachers of Mato Grosso do Sul) in Brazil. Each co-investigator brings distinctive expertise to this project. Our co-creation of knowledge and understanding will synthesize and build on existing work across the disciplines with the aim of mobilizing our findings in accessible ways in classroom and web-based settings, building institutional capacity, and training the next generation of teachers, translators, and researchers in both countries.
Walkyria's participation in the Brazil Canada Knowledge Project is made possible, in part, through support from the SSHRC partnership development grant program and the Canada Research Chair’s program.
