Abstract

GOLDMAN, Marcio. SEGMENTARIDADES E MOVIMENTOS NEGROS NAS ELEIÇÕES DE ILHÉUS. Mana [online]. 2001, vol.7, n.2, pp.57-93. ISSN 1678-4944.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0104-93132001000200003.

Assuming that processes of segmentation are not necessarily opposed to those linked to the state, this article seeks to explore the ways through which the segmentary divisions characteristic of Black Movement groups in Ilhéus can function simultaneously as forms of resistance and as nodal points for mechanisms which are dependent on a state logic. It is a matter of emphasising both the processes of "capture" used by the state and the resistances mobilized by the segmentary formations. From a theoretical perspective, the aim of the article is to show that the application to our own society of categories traditionally developed to account for other cultures should cease to be a simple metaphor or stylistic resource and become an instrument of observation and interpretation. For this to be achieved, these categories must be transformed and made flexible, which also produces effects on the analysis of these "other cultures"
