ANJOS, Juarez José Tuchinski dos  and  BARBOSA, Etienne Baldez Louzada. The World of Marcondes de Sá: Education and Instruction in Two Generations of a Countryside Elite Family in the 19th Century’s Paraná. Rev. Bras. Hist. [online]. 2019, vol.39, n.82, pp.221-239.  Epub Dec 09, 2019. ISSN 0102-0188.

This article interrogates the memorialistic report and the correspondence of the Marcondes de Oliveira e Sá family, in order to investigate their educational practices. That family belonged to the so-called countryside elite of Paraná, and its patriarch was the farmer José Caetano de Oliveira, Baron of Tibagy. We will accompany the Baron and his son, Jesuíno Marcondes de Oliveira e Sá, aiming to identify the practices they mobilized for the education and instruction of some of their children, as well as the place education occupied in their lives. Our hypothesis is that this family used a universe of educational practices common to their group and other segments of the population, but appropriating them on the basis of representations of their social place and class, aiming to maintain a place of power, of which education and instruction were constituent elements. The research glimpsed a little of the family’s world, realizing the existence of dimensions (familiar, material, political and social) that complement and strengthen each other over two generations.

Keywords : Paraná; 19th century; family educational practices; instruction.
