ZANOTTO, Gizele. Standardizations, control and discipline: TFP as total institution (1960-1995). História [online]. 2010, vol.29, n.2, pp.206-220. ISSN 1980-4369.

In this paper we propose to examine some elements that approximate the daily lives of members of the Brazilian Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) the characterization of the whole institution, aiming to elucidate some of the mechanisms aimed at standardization and the subjection of individuals who decide to join the organization. In this sense, we aim to draw parallels between the ways of living and configurating regulations of such total institutions (Goffman) and the everyday TFP system, starting from the analysis of testimonies of former monks of the entity. The temporal delimitation of this reflective exercise will be marked out between 1960, year of foundation of the TFP, and 1995, time of the death of its highest leader and also initial milestone of divisions within the entity.

Keywords : Tradition; Family and Property (TFP); The total institution; Regulation; Disciplining.
