FERRARI, Anderson. Visual culture and homosexualities in the formation of "new" childhoods and "new" teachers. Rev. Bras. Educ. [online]. 2012, vol.17, n.49, pp.107-120. ISSN 1413-2478. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-24782012000100006.
This paper aims at establishing the meeting points between teacher's formation, children's education and their relations to gender and sexualities. For such, I take for granted a documentary produced by an association of homoparental families to the schools and mainly a reduced version of this audiovisual production directed towards children and teens. My objective is to analyze the role of visual culture in building the subjectivity. As an heir of pos-structuralism, and of the cultural, feminist, gays and lesbian studies, the visual culture is expressed far beyond the reading of images and it gets to be quite relevant to produce the subjectivity. Therefore, the speechs, images and discourses from the documentary carry on and negotiate several meanings on the construction of a reality, different from "the" reality, "new" childhoods and "new" teachers.
