Programa de Pós-Graduação em Linguística – Faculdade de Letras da UFRJ –   Auditório G-2

The Graduate Program in Linguistics at UFRJ (POSLING / UFRJ) had its origins in 1968, and was the first to be created in Brazil, as a unified program, which combined the postgraduate activities in Linguistics of the National Museum and of the Faculty of Letters. The differentiated curricular structure of POSLING / UJFRJ offers selected students the possibility of participating in projects developed in several lines of research. Currently, the activities of the Program are integrated to the Department of Linguistics and Philology of the College of Letters of UFRJ, where we offer training in linguistics at Masters and PhD levels. The program has a team of twenty-one professors – researchers of recognized trajectory. Over 50 years of existence, we have graduated more than 200 masters and more than 100 doctors, who have been making an important contribution to the field of linguistics with publications, books and scientific articles in Brazil and abroad.

The Museum of the Indian was created in 1953. In 1967, it became part of the National Foundation of the Indian – FUNAI. It aims to contribute to a greater awareness of the contemporaneity and importance of indigenous cultures. As an institution for the preservation and promotion of indigenous cultural heritage, it endeavors to disseminate the existing and historical diversity among hundreds of Brazilian indigenous groups. The Indian Museum coordinates the Documentation Program for Indigenous Languages and Cultures – PROGDOC, with direct participation of indigenous communities and researchers in collaborative projects, exhibitions and workshops. The Indian Museum’s partnerships established with the Indians and their various indigenous associations are intended to contribute to the defense of land, cultural and linguistic rights and the quality of life of these peoples.

The mansion where the Museum of the Indian is nowadays is an example of the neoclassical architecture that prevailed in the city of Rio de Janeiro during the nineteenth century. Tombado as patrimony of cultural preservation of the Country in 1967, it forms an architectonic set with buildings of the same period in Rua das Palmeiras and others in the neighborhood of Botafogo, as the House of Rui Barbosa and the Villa-Lobos Museum; and in the city, such as the France-Brazil House and the Itamaraty Palace.
