LOPES, José Rogério. City, subjectivity and territory: representations of the impoverished subjects. Interações (Campo Grande) [online]. 2007, vol.8, n.1, pp. 81-94. ISSN 1984-042X. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1518-70122007000100009.
The article presents an analysis of the relation between space, subjectivity and knowledge based on an ethnographic study developed in a slum pertaining to the town of Ubatuba, in the state of São Paulo, Brazil. The analysis is centered on the discussion of terms that define social-spatial perceptions among impoverished subjects, analyzing the social content that permeates the use of such terms and that makes it possible to characterize distinctions to the analysis of social-spatial relations that are marked by social inequality.
