Item“Só fica velha quem não morre cedo” – a gestão do envelhecimento por mulheres idosas em Goiânia(Universidade Federal de Goiás, 2012-03-15) Faria, Márcia Pimenta; Silva, Telma Camargo da; http://lattes.cnpq.br/5600367671251186; Silva, Telma Camargo da; Grossi, Miriam Pillar; Braz, Camilo Albuquerque deThis research investigates the experience of aging in middle-class elderly women in Goiânia, focusing on the possibilities for embodiments. The theoretical basis of the discussion proposed here is the idea of performative embodiment of corporeality (BUTLER, 1993), based on the concept of embodiment (CSORDAS, 1994), seeking to establish relations with the fieldwork in 2011, in gyms in this capital. Special attention is given to issues related to body techniques practiced by these women, the individual management of their own aging process and the construction of feminine identities in old age. We consider the subjectivities, meanings and practices undertaken by them in the life course, paying particular attention to the observed changes in their bodies, the way it influences the configuration of their identities and also to how these women are perceived in their family relationships – gender and intergenerational. This study is located in the field of Anthropology of Aging and Anthropology of the Body.
