LODI, Ana Claudia. Reading in a second language: language practices that constitute the subjectivity(ies) of a group of adult deaf. Cad. CEDES [online]. 2006, vol.26, n.69, pp.185-204. ISSN 1678-7110. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-32622006000200005.
Based on the realization of bilingual reading workshops, this work discusses some aspects that constitute the subjectivity(ies) of a group of adult deaf. Grounded on discursive interactions in Brazilian sign language (LIBRAS), such space allowed a transformation of the social places assumed by the subjects because it permitted the establishment of dialogs between life stories and the different social relationships constructed within and by the group. Assuming that subjectivity is always relative, determined by the various looks of the others and constructed in distinct social-ideological places and times, and that it constitutes a plural event discursively marked, in which the self completes itself dialogically in its relationship(s) to the others, the discussions presented in this study highlight the need to rethink the educational spaces as loci of discursive interactions and thus of transformation and constitution of the subjects.
