Deserved tribute to Professor Kabengele Munanga, who received this 32nd. RBA
the Roquette Pinto medal. His speech on receiving the award is an evident demonstration
its trajectory, its anti-racist struggle and how much that struggle is still necessary, until
even in an association such as ABA and in academic circles in general.
Established in 2003, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the 1st RBA, the Roquette Pinto medal is the
most important distinction granted to people, whose trajectory and work have
made significant contributions to the various dimensions in Anthropology.

Congratulations Kabê !!!

From the occurrence of the pandemic COVID-19, with the interruption of face-to-face classes and the implementation of remote teaching strategies, especially mediated by digital technologies, the dissemination of the debate around the qualitative and equitable realization of the right to education in the face of inequalities has grown access and use of networks, devices and media languages. Challenges that became more evident with the intensification of activities mediated by these resources, but that were already revealed a few decades ago by specialists dedicated to the study of educational policies, especially public ones. On the other hand, changes in teaching and learning practices have also led to reflections on the future of education, on the role of school and university institutions, as well as on a possible opening of the educational process for the hybridization of spaces, times and means of knowledge acquisition.

These themes are part of the debate Digital teaching in Brazil and the use of technology in education, based mainly on the indicators collected by the ICT Education survey, carried out by the Regional Center for Studies for the Development of the Information Society (Cetic.br), a linked research center. to the Ponto Br Information and Coordination Center (NIC.br). For ten years, the ICT Education research has investigated the access and use of technologies and the development of digital skills in Basic Education. Conducted in person and by telephone, using structured questionnaires, the survey annually interviews students, teachers, pedagogical coordinators and managers of public and private schools, in urban and rural areas, in order to contribute to the development of digital educational policies more effective.

Daniela Costa holds a PhD in Education and a Master in Communication and Semiotics, both from the Pontifical Catholic University of São Paulo. Researcher in the areas of education, technology and language, she coordinates the ICT Education research, a national study on the access and use of technologies and the development of digital skills by students and teachers in Brazilian schools, at the Regional Center for Studies for the Development of Society Information (Cetic.br), department of Ponto BR's Information and Coordination Center (NIC.br).

Mobilization of CEstA-USP against the genocide of indigenous peoples in the pandemic of the new coronavirus

In dozens of villages in the Indigenous Lands and indigenous neighborhoods in Brazilian cities, an increasing number of deaths and cases of illness by covid-19 have been recorded. In a political scenario marked by the State's omission due to the high lethality rate of the disease among indigenous peoples, the indigenous movement and its organizations have been reacting to the situation in a forceful way and calling their partners to joint action.
Responding to this situation, CEstA-USP opens a space for its national and international network of indigenous and non-indigenous researchers and other partners, in order to share reflections, reports and information materials on regional situations and support initiatives. The objective is to monitor and document the development of the pandemic among indigenous peoples, paying attention to violations of rights, given the risk of imminent genocide. We also want to give visibility to local perspectives and solutions, in addition to building a memory space for victims of the covid-19.

In this way, CEstA-USP pays tribute to families and communities that have been losing dear relatives affected by the disease, and expresses its support to those who are currently struggling without the slightest recourse to recover the health of their patients and to guarantee the recommended conditions. health authorities to prevent and cope with the new coronavirus.

Civil mobilization to guarantee the constitutional right of indigenous peoples to health is necessary as never before. This urgency stems from the deliberate and criminal paralysis of the current government in guaranteeing fundamental rights and promoting effective public policies for one of the most vulnerable segments of Brazilian society.

We therefore invite CEstA's network of employees to share materials of various kinds, such as support and fundraising initiatives and campaigns; reports on the situations faced by indigenous people across the country; reflections on the pandemic; or texts in honor of victims of the covid-19. They are being collected and published on this special page:


 Contributions to this information, reflection and memory network can be shared at cestausp.covid19@gmail.com, with the subject “Indigenous and covid-19”.
