BARBOSA, Maria Ligia de Oliveira. Professions and the sociology of professions in Brazil. Dados [online]. 2003, vol.46, n.3, pp.593-607. ISSN 1678-4588.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0011-52582003000300007.

This essay analyzes the recent Brazilian literature on the sociology of professions to demonstrate that professional groups, in the process of constructing their identity and social place, are essential elements in shaping the dominant pattern of social relations in the country. From the point of view of both the historical background of professions and their social practice, physicians, engineers, and attorneys can be viewed in their struggle to demarcate and control specific areas in the social division of labor over which they detain cultural authority. The novelty in this set of studies is their use of the conceptual and methodological tools from the sociology of professions, which thus becomes a key area in the Brazilian social sciences.

Palavras-chave : sociology of professions; professional groups; constructing of identity.
