Movies in the teaching of International Relations

the Brazilian experience




This article investigates how movies have been used as an IR pedagogical tool in Brazil. Through a survey research method, with voluntary and unidentified participation of respondents, we mapped when films are used and why, the judgment on the successfulness of performed activities, and the difficulties to use them. Data confirmed that films are widely employed; that the main purposes of using movies are to provide additional information and to illustrate how a given IR theory or school explain the world; and that limits of using films go from the lack of adequate films to the absence of adequate resources for their exhibition.
