TAGLIAMENTO, Grazielle y TONELI, Maria Juracy F.. (No)work and masculinity produced in family contexts of middle class. Psicol. Soc. [online]. 2010, vol.22, n.2, pp. 345-354. ISSN 0102-7182. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-71822010000200015.
Currently subjects are facing two prerogatives: working, as the main priority in life and consumption, as a producer of lifestyles. Such mandates, combined with the scarcity of jobs, put the individual without work and without employment is in a dramatic field which is permeated by agonism. When you take this context as background, this text will present the daily practices of two families of middle class, in which the man is unemployed, and the woman has to take the responsibility of having a job. From the analysis of such practices, it can be attested under the same norms, in a game of agonism between these and the contingencies that preclude the reiteration of them, multiple subjectivities and masculinities emerged.
