Research with International Students Conference features presentation about the SINTEGRA Project at UFSC


The Research with International Students Conference was held on 11 and 12 December in a hybrid format (online and in-person) at the University of Manchester (UK). The event sought to develop more methodological guidance to steer this subfield away from problematic discourses and assumptions, through presentations dealing with the following issues: critical conceptual and methodological issues currently faced by research with international students; practical (macro or micro) considerations for research in this subfield; issues of power, inequality, intersectionality and ethics in research with international students; how research with international students might be imagined differently; and what the future of research with international students should look like.

Based on this, the SINTEGRA project – a partnership between the Office of International Relations (SINTER/UFSC) and the Department of Psychology at UFSC – delivered a presentation entitled “SINTEGRA as an initiative to integrate international students from the Global South into a Brazilian public university“. They presented the Programa de Estudantes-Convênio de Graduação (PEC-G), how the project works, its objectives and the ongoing actions. The presentation was prepared by the Director of International Relations Fernanda Leal, the head of PEC-G at UFSC Elisa Freitas Schemes, the SINTEGRA coordinator Elka Lima Hostensky, and the psychology professor Lígia Rocha. The presentation was also attended by Paula Eduarda Michels, English/Portuguese translator and interpreter at SINTER.
