Throughout her trajectory of studies and interventions, Mireya Lozada Santelis carried out investigations in applied social psychology through transdisciplinary approaches, focusing, above all, on the possibility of transformation in Latin American contexts, among them, those related to the educational field. From 1998, her projects were dedicated to the relationship between democracy, public space and daily life. From 2002 to the present, she has been developing projects and psychosocial accompaniment on the theme "Imaginaries and social polarization". In recognition of her work as a researcher, she was awarded the Prizes Francisco De Venanzi, in 2008, and Orden José María Vargas, in 2010. In addition to the academic contributions, Mireya Lozada Santelis stands out for her role as promoter of the training proposal "Here We All Fit", formed after the events of 2002, to promote the recognition of diversity; the need for dialogue and democratic and non-violent alternatives to the socio-political conflict experienced by Venezuela. Her contribution as a guest researcher at the Laboratoire Europeen de Psychologie Sociale, da Maison des Sciences de l´homme (Paris, France), the Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana (Iztapalapa, Mexico) and the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Puerto Rico (Ferré Aguayo Ponce, Puerto Rico ), as well as her contribution in the working groups: "Culture and Social Transformations in Times of Globalization" and "Collective memories and practices of resistance" of the Latin American Council of Social Sciences (CLACSO) are expressions of her academic insertion. In view of Mireya Lozada's extensive studies, the activities planned for her visit to the institutions of São Paulo were planned around four axes: teaching, supervision, research, and diffusion. These activities converge, as they contribute to the constitution of a Latin American research network, which has so far been configured with the participation of research projects from universities and research institutions in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico and Venezuela. From the schedule set forth in the document attached to this proposal, there are also training activities in public schools in São Paulo and in technical terms, regarding the meeting with the 44 research groups gathered by the International Center for Studies in Social Representations and Subjectivity - Education (CIERS-ed) and the preparation of the report to be sent to FAPESP.
