CHAMPANGNATTE, Dostoiewski Mariatt de Oliveira. University curriculum: from neoliberal mexico to neoliberal brazil. Avaliação (Campinas) [online]. 2016, vol.21, n.1, pp.109-123. ISSN 1982-5765.

This paper’s purpose is to discuss and compare curricular perceptions and actions of Brazilian and Mexican university professors. It contextualizes the two countries’ socioeconomic reality and mainly governmental policies toward undergraduate education. It is possible to observe in professors’ discourse a simplicist approach of curriculum, which is treated only as a concern of subjects taught in disciplines. Aspects of social, economical and political contexts are released from curricular thought and practice at the expense of adaptation to labor market. It is also possible to notice, directly or indirectly, influences of neoliberal thoughts and practices in these professors’ position as far as to the curriculum and to the very functionality of the undergraduate education, which is reflected and reproduced in their discourses and practices.

Keywords : Keywords; University curriculum; Policies; Neoliberalism.
