Teaching sociology from “Roots of Brazil”: a dialogue between a classic book and a historical drama film
This article discusses the combined use of the film ‘Mauá - O Imperador e O Rei’ and the book “Roots of Brazil” to deepen discussions on certain cultural traits arising from the history and their implications for organizations, as a teaching strategy. By choosing this method, we proposed to help the pupils appreciate the contribution made by sociology to the understanding of the formation of the country. The experience has shown that when using the film as a case where students could examine the concepts presented in the book, their grasp of the content and its transposition to the present day were more complete. This process of reflection shows that Management, despite being a practical field of knowledge, can be based on theoretical knowledge. However, for this relationship to be fully developed this ability needs to be stimulated throughout the training period of future managers by applying various activities that foster reflection, identification and the application of concepts in practice.
