GOMES, Camilla de Magalhães. The subjects of the juridical performative - Rereading human dignity in the framework of gender and race. Rev. Direito Práx. [online]. 2019, vol.10, n.2, pp.871-905.  Epub 27-Jun-2019. ISSN 2179-8966.

The purpose of this work is to think how the ways of theorizing about body and law can allow us to do otherwise the human entering the legal. For this operation, with the performativity-decoloniality articulation, two terms of the Constitution can be used to carry out the (re) discussion of this human entrance: in the place of State, nation or citizenship, the people. In place of subject or individual, the dignity of the human person. For this article, the latter was chosen to work. It is worth bearing in mind that working the human in the juridical is to oscillate between two points: universality and individuality. In human and fundamental rights, especially, theorization takes the human as a universal category under consensus to establish what rights belong to it. It takes the universal as a parameter for dealing with individuals. What happens when we confront the notion of dignity of the dominant human person in Brazilian constitutional theory with the conception of the processes of subjectivation as a process embodied in the landmarks of race and gender? This is the question that will bring us a re-reading of the said foundation of the Republic.
