MORAES, Marcia. The contribution of symmetric anthropology to intervention research in social psychology: a corporalexpression workshopwith visual handicapped youths. Psicol. Soc. [online]. 2008, vol.20, n.spe, pp.41-49. ISSN 1807-0310. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-71822008000400007.
This paper aims to discuss how to carry out research with a group of visual handicapped youth. The text describes the work of a Corporal Expression Workshop with visual handicapped youth. To discuss the modes of producing knowledge with visual handicapped youth, we refer to Latour, Despret and Stengers. We start by problemizing the research field as something that is outside of our realm. Our final considerations, based on Latour's symmetric anthropology, indicate that to intervene is to produce unedited realities and that the work of the researcher is to follow the actors in action.
