Resumo

This paper examines the institutional
trajectory and the formative influence of Antonio
Candido in the period between 1961 and 1970,
when he became the main teacher, supervisor, and
mentor of the Literary Theory and Compared Lite-
rature course at the University of São Paulo (USP).
In particular, it describes in detail the major cha-
racteristics of the organizational structure and dy-
namics of the course and seeks to make evident its
importance to the consolidation of the professional
identity and recognition achieved by Candido in
the field of contemporary literary criticism. In the
end, Candido’s model of professional performance
is compared to the initiatives of the sociologist Flo-
restan Fernades Chair of Sociology I at FFCL/USP
from 1954 on.
