ABRAMOWICZ, Anete  e  RODRIGUES, Tatiane Consentino. Decolonizing research with children and three obstacles. Educ. Soc. [online]. 2014, vol.35, n.127, pp.461-474. ISSN 1678-4626.

This article discusses the possibilities for decolonizing research with children through an understanding of childhood conceived as a unique social and individual experience that decentralizes or avoids hegemonic places and models that centralize dominant senses, norms, aesthetics and health and that is constituted beyond the logic of capital. It starts the debate focusing on childhood as a power device that is imposed upon each child in a single and universal manner, and then it claims the positivity of childhood as a unique experience of entering language and constituting history and as critical thinking, taking Giorgio Agamben and Rene Scherer as interlocutors. At the end we indicate three obstacles to conducting decolonized research with children and the topics that necessarily form part of the post-colonial set of themes such as race, gender, ethnicity, nation-state and Diaspora, based on the work of Judith Butler, Gayatri Spivak and Avtar Brah.

Palavras-chave : Childhood; Research with children; Critical thinking; Post-colonial studies.
