FARIA, Ederson de y SOUZA, Vera Lúcia Trevisan de. The identity concept and its appropriation in teachers education studies. Psicol. Esc. Educ. (Impr.) [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.1, pp. 35-42. ISSN 1413-8557. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-85572011000100004.
This article is the result of a research that attempts to understand how the identity concept has been appropriated in teachers' education studies and their contribution to the understanding of the process of identity constitution. We analyze five Master´s theses and five doctoral dissertations that revealed through their titles and summaries the proposal to study teachers' identities. We conducted a bibliographical research, taking as theoretical references authors who use cultural-historical approach. We found that some research pieces carried out by MA and PhD candidates have used the concepts of several authors in the field of sociology and an author in psychology. These scholars provide us with input for understanding the phenomenon of the teacher´s identity construction.
