Social movements and production of subjectivity: the MST in perspective

Jáder Ferreira Leite Magda Dimenstein About the authors

This article presents a discussion regarding the Landless Workers Movement - LWM (Movimento dos Trabalhadores Rurais Sem Terra - MST, in portuguese) and how it acts as an important social agent in the political struggle currently underway in society. This discussion is based on critical perspective and aims to contribute to the Social Psychological field. Thus, we propose an understanding of the social movements beginning from the creation of subjectivity, as we understand that subjectivities are active in relationships of power/knowledge that cross a given historical/social reality.
