Latin American Curricular Studies Network ( CurriculoLatinoAmerica )

The formation of the Latin American Curricular Studies Network ( CurriculoLatinoAmerica ) is, at the same time, the result of the joint work of several actions, programs and publications between university institutions and their teams dedicated to the study and training in Curriculum, mainly from Mexico, Brazil, Argentina and Chile, as well as the political-academic decision to look directly at the complexity of the 21st century and act in a line of democratic commitment to social justice for our countries and peoples.

Its main objective is to promote and strengthen the relationship aiming at internationalization, the mobility of students and teachers, joint publications and the establishment of programs and projects related to the Curriculum in the Latin American space. It is an initiative that was established in Latin America and from Latin America and aims to participate in discussions, dialogues, debates and controversies about the Curriculum within Latin American countries and with countries around the world, in the gaps of Western curricular tensions , north-south, south-south and west-east. In this way, it seeks to establish and consolidate international, national and institutional relationships between Curriculum scholars, providing a space for constant dialogue between researchers in the field.

Interaction between experts will be carried out systematically through websites and email lists that allow the sharing and discussion of research on curriculum studies.

As one of the Network’s first actions, the Coordination commits to establishing relationships to seek links with the International Association for the Advancement of Curriculum Studies (IAACS), as well as ensuring the broad possibility of communication between members of the network, through a web page and a collective email , aiming to promote activities that can constitute spaces for dialogue and/or joint publication of books and periodicals .

The Latin American Curricular Studies Network ( CurriculoLatinoAmerica ) is not a legal institution and does not receive funding from any source, nor is it affiliated with any political party in the countries that comprise it. The activities it promotes are carried out with the support of the universities to which its associates are linked, having started with funding from the research project Seminario Curriculum Latinoamerica (IISUE-UNAM), Mexico, and the research project Policies Curriculares ProPEd / Uerj (supported by Capes PrInt ), Brazil.

As the first minimum structure of the network, approved on the day of its launch, the following organization is proposed:

Coordination of the CurriculoLatinoAmerica Network : Alicia de Alba (UNAM, Mexico); Alice Casimiro Lopes (Uerj, Brazil); Daniel Johnson ( UChile , Chile); Silvia Morelli ( Universidad Nacional de Rosario, Argentina).


Representatives of each country:

Argentina – Dr. Marina Paulozzo , Coordinadora de la Red Argentina de Curriculum, Universidad de Lomas de Zamora, Argentina.
Bolívia – Mario Yapu, Universidad San Francisco Xavier, Bolivia
Brasil – Dra. Elizabeth Macedo, Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro, Brasil
Chile – Dr. Carmen Burgos, Director de Instituto de Investigaciones en Ciencias Sociales y Educación , Universidad de Atacama, Chile.
Colómbia – Dr. Henry Portela Guarín, Universidade de Caldas, Colômbia
Mexico – Dra. Bertha Orozco, IISUE/Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Mexico, Mexico

Initial formalization of members: free registration on the network carried out by any researcher working in Latin America through one of the links below.

In Spanish: Latin American Curricular Network (

In Portuguese: Latin American Curricular Network (

After the initial survey of members using the forms above, the Coordination undertakes to create a database that can be accessed by all members.

The Coordination of this Network is committed to publicizing the network and promoting action proposals for the next five years, as well as calling for the renewal of representatives per country, taking 50% of the network members from the corresponding country as a quorum.

From this initial document, the general coordination and coordination by country will advance in the development of basic guidelines for the operation of the network, seeking as a principle to reduce bureaucracy and making them available to all associates for consideration.
