Brazilian thesis on social pedagogy

Dear friends,

A while ago Mr. Érico Ribas Machado from Florianópolis, Brazil, sent me his thesis on scial pedagogy, published in 2010. It is a research which analyses the emergence of social pedagogy as a sub-field of Brazilian education based on Pierre Bourdieu´s concept of field. Its main goal is to understand the historical background of social pedagogy as a sub-field of education in Brazil, its basic concepts, origins and connections with Popular Education.

Unfortunately, it is only in Portuguese, so to those of you who understand it, enjoy the read.
