Chapter Summary

This chapter takes a poststructuralist perspective in discussing how issues regarding gender and sexuality are addressed at a Brazilian technical school, taking into account the subjectivation and normalization processes that arise in school, be it in the formal curriculum, or through non-formal learning spaces present in the school environment. It also identifies and reviews some resistance processes, contextualizing them within the historical and political shifts currently underway in Brazil, showing how gender and sexuality features relate to and are permeated by cultural issues, such as religion. The chapter presents reflections on material collected through interviews that point to how religious discourse interferes with learning at school. The curricular emphasis on sexuality-related issues may suggest both that society is taking kindly to such issues being addressed and that there is a need for the subject to be regulated and standardized.

Keywords: Brazilian technical school; exclusion processes; formal curriculum; gender; political shifts; sexuality
