This project is part of what contemporary educational literature refers to as transnational history of education. By crossing borders, this historiographical reference redefines territories and sets the national histories within international contexts, presenting transnational relations, connections, interdependencies. The purpose is to study the circulation of subjects, artifacts, knowledge and practices and understand how in Brazil, since the beginning of the 19th century there were appropriations and exchanges of knowledge and actions at international level. This symbolic universe thus inscribed marks of innovation in the different traditions that made up and composed knowledge and educational practices until nowadays. The project is organized into four thematic axes, so-called: 1) digital archives and libraries: book and reading history; 2) subjects and artifacts: movements and traces; 3) innovation and tradition: leaks and counterpoints; 4) didactic material for public education and teacher training. Each of these axes is coordinated by two researchers from the Faculty of Education of the University of São Paulo and counts on the collaboration of researchers from other universities of São Paulo State and international institutions.
