SALVINI, Leila; SOUZA, Juliano de and MARCHI JUNIOR, Wanderley. Symbolic violence and male domination in sport field: some theoretical notes and digressions. Rev. bras. educ. fís. esporte [online]. 2012, vol.26, n.3, pp. 401-410. ISSN 1807-5509. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1807-55092012000300006.
In the present article, we aimed to develop, from a theoretical point of view, some conjectures linked to the exercise of symbolic violence and, more specifically, of male domination on sports field recovering, as far as possible, some practical examples directly linked to soccer and the use of body on sports. Having as an initial point element to arguments construction the sociological analysis of Pierre Bourdieu, we proposed, at a first time, to briefly present the theory of fields and its developments considering the sports reading. In a second time, we aimed to advance on the treating of symbolic violence and legitimate body uses as one of the subtle ways of male domination reproduced on sports field.
