The Academic Gesture and the Intercessory Thought: childhood and knowledge about childhood

Dora Lilia Marín-Díaz About the author


This reflection article, derived from the bibliographic review on the academic production of Professor Sandra Mara Corazza, describes the intercessory thought that her academic gesture produced and that allows us to recognize at least four contributions to the field of knowledge about childhood; with them, regions are made visible to advance in the deconstruction, reorganization, and understanding of childhood affairs. The intercessory thought points towards a region to be explored that demands action in the discursive and practical order and questions how we behave as the forms and possibilities that we build with and for the experience of childhood.
