The present study discusses the possibilities of intertwining a field of research in education – the multiculturalism, which seeks to provide answers to cultural diversity and challenges prejudices and stereotypes related to it – with other fields, such as logistics. Based on the assumption related to the centrality of multiculturalism in times of conflicts and demands of identities of race, gender, religion, ethnicity, social class, and others, it bases its argument on studies that not only deal with multicultural themes, but also use it as new lenses to analyze multicultural organizations. In a perspective of curriculum without borders, it contends that the multicultural approach should not only be geared towards the curriculum of social and human sciences, but also towards those areas known as “hard sciences”, and it illustrates the argument with an experience of the teaching of logistics in a multicultural perspective. It concludes, suggesting possible ways ahead in research in the area.
