REIS, Eliana Tavares dos. Em nome da "cultura": porta-vozes, mediação e referenciais de políticas públicas no Maranhão. Soc. estado. [online]. 2010, vol.25, n.3, pp. 499-523. ISSN 0102-6992. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-69922010000300005.
The article analyses as a group of practices, resources and representations activated by spokespeople for "culture" in Maranhão. Through the analysis of the repertoires of mobilization, the insertion spaces and the profiles of social agents that dispute legitimate authority to define what "culture" is in the state, the intention is to reveal some social conditioning incident in the exercise of cultural mediation and in the work of production of public policy.
