The Cultural Historical Theory in Spain, as well as in Brazil, had its entrance door and development linked to education, however, some important themes for the understanding of the human psyche were not elaborated, also due to lack of access to the productions of Soviet authors. Since 2005, after the first congress of the International Society for Cultural and Activity Research (ISCAR), groups of researchers of the Cultural-Historical Theory in Spain began to boost the studies of the same, seeking to advance in research on the psychic development, such as the teaching and learning process, the development of thought and language, the teacher-student interaction, gender relations and the development of identity, the latter being very little developed in Brazil. Thus, the present research project abroad aims to systematize the approximations between Cultural-Historical Theory studies in Spain and Brazil in order to contribute to the understanding of the attribution of personal sense to work and the formation of identity among adolescent students of the Schools of the Landless Movement. The studies of the group from the Laboratorio de Actividad Humana (LAH), to which Professor Manuel De La Mata Benítez belongs at the Universidad de Sevilla, can contribute to the understanding of the totality of human development, breaking the interpretive limits of the theory in Brazil, as well as bringing together the studies carried out by the two groups in search of advances in the theory at the international level. In order to achieve the proposed research abroad objective, the procedures will be: a) theoretical systematization of the approximations between authors studied in Brazil and Spain; b) participation in international events; c) classes at the University of Seville; d) monitoring the ongoing investigations by the research group of the external supervisor; f) getting to know the public educational system of basic education in Spain; g) elaborating academic-scientific materials based on the results found. It is hoped that with the approximations of the studies carried out between the two countries it will be possible to glimpse new paths for the advancement of the Cultural-Historical Theory, and also bring interpretations for some categories of analysis that emerged in the initial data collection of the doctoral research funded by FAPESP.
