    Jazz dance: memórias e histórias negras do Brasil
    (Universidade Federal de Goiás, 2023-10-23) Santos, Susan Maria da Graça Castro dos; Vilaça, Aline Serzedello Neves;; Hirano, Luis Felipe Kojima;; Hirano, Luis Felipe Kojima; Ratts, Alecsandro José Prudêncio; Ribeiro, Ana Paula Alves; Ribeiro
    This dissertation addresses the presence of black bodies in Jazz Dance in Brazil through the lens of the Anthropology of Ethnic-Racial Relations and dance. I intend to articulate my autoethnography in dialogue with Edson Santos and Israel Plínio, who participated in the Cia de Dança Race of Roseli Rodrigues (SP), as well as Vera Passos, who was a member of the Ballet Folclórico da Bahia in Salvador. From the presented scenarios, one can perceive how black trajectories are continually made invisible by the dominant narrative voices of white researchers and/or artists. To combat this, my main goal is to investigate, analyze, and highlight black jazz stories and memories, including mine, to point out aesthetic, poetic and afro-oriented paths in creative practices in dance.

    O latenira Iny: pássaros e plumária no rio Araguaia
    (Universidade Federal de Goiás, 2023-08-25) Yabagata, Lucas Veloso; Lima Filho, Manuel Ferreira;; Lima Filho, Manuel Ferreira; Valente, Renata Curcio; Oliveira, Arthur Bispo Ângelo de; Silva, Joana Aparecida Fernandes
    The work is dedicated to outlining reflections on the relationships established between the Iny, a people who have inhabited the banks of the Araguaia River since time immemorial, and their materialities, especially feather ornaments. The pillar of reflection is the latenira, a feathered helmet that encapsulates a “multicollectivity” of Iny knowledge. By monitoring the making of this artifact and ethnographic records of its use in ritual contexts, it was possible to penetrate part of this “multicollectivity” of knowledge: “craftsmanship” and the artisans’ technical processes; the relationship between the Iny and the birdlife of the Araguaia River; the meaning of feathers in ancient stories from mythical time; and, finally, the process of constructing male identity through headdresses and the interaction between the different Iny cosmological levels.

    Grafismo Iny: arte e identidade de um povo indígena do Brasil central
    (Universidade Federal de Goiás, 2023-08-30) Silva, Frederico Elias Barbosa; Lima Filho, Manuel Ferreira;; Lima Filho, Manuel Ferreira; Leitão, Rosani Moreira; Alvarez, Gabriel Omar
    This dissertation aims to contribute to the study of Iny graphics in Aldeia de Santa Isabel (TO), and its attributions in material culture and the body. Going through a little of its historiography and memory through photos and images in accordance with the identity of the people of the river, I sought to demonstrate the visual records of this art in ethnographies set back in time. This was done with the intention of learning about aesthetics and identity, covering graphics and material culture. I based myself on the written works of the first German expeditions that were in contact with the so-called Karajá on Bananal Island, at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. XX, as well as in collecting and ethnographic records and narratives, written between the 1920s and 1980s, along with more contemporary works. In addition, the research includes two fieldworks. One took place during the month of December 2021, with the aim of demonstrating the diversity of graphics and their applications in the vast world of material culture. The second focused only on body painting, printed with drawings that play a fundamental role in identifying this culture. These lines and colors symbolize the internalization of customs and knowledge, traditional and at the same time contemporary, becoming essential elements for cultural identity.

    Arquivos da insistência: narrativas biográficas de entendidas, maduras e lésbicas
    (Universidade Federal de Goiás, 2023-10-02) Silva, Isabella Gonzaga Guimarães; Hirano, Luis Felipe Kojima;; Hirano, Luis Felipe Kojima; Kofes, Maria Suely; Gonçalves, Eliane
    This dissertation is the result of an ethnography of the biographical narratives of 4 women homosexuals aged between 51 and 70 years old and who record their sexual itinerations since categories such as “madura”, “entendida”, and “lésbicas”. The complex arrangements were covered temporalities put into circulation by them when they problematize the way their sexual and gender performances are constructed over time. When counting their modes of subjectivation articulate an ethnographic theory about the different relationships between subjectivity and truth in different cultural formations, making their existences are like seismographs of subjectivities in transit. Taking the narratives from themselves since the moments in which they underline the way in which they constituted themselves as subjects from a temporality of the impossible, it is suggested that their existences compose an archive of insistences and a radical imagination.

    Kalunga cidadão: uma análise antropológica da extensão universitária da Universidade Federal de Goiás nas comunidades quilombolas Kalunga
    (Universidade Federal de Goiás, 2023-10-03) Gabry, Ulisses José; Omar Alvarez, Gabriel;; Omar Alvarez, Gabriel; Soares, Carlos Alberto Caroso; Lima Filho, Manuel Ferreira; Dias, Luciana de Oliveira
    This paper aims to contribute to the debate on the work of the Federal University of Goiás in the Kalunga Quilombola Communities through university extension. To this end, an anthropological analysis of UFG's university extension work in the Kalunga territory was carried out, starting with the extension program "Kalunga Cidadão: Promoção da Igualdade Racial na Comunidade Rural Quilombola Kalunga de Cavalcante, Monte Alegre e Teresina - Goiás" (Kalunga Citizen: Promotion of Racial Equality in the Kalunga Rural Quilombola Community of Cavalcante, Monte Alegre and Teresina - Goiás). It was found that the university's extension practice with the population has been built up over a long period of time by faculty members who, by having their research and teaching trajectories intersect with those of the communities, seek to contribute to the demands of the Kalunga Communities through university extension.

    Juventude e escola: um estudo etnográfico atravessado pelas noções de corpo e subjetividade
    (Universidade Federal de Goiás, 2023-08-22) Gomes Neto, José Joaquim; Ferreira, Glauco Batista;; Ferreira, Glauco Batista; Henning, Carlos Eduardo; Ribeiro, Miriam Bianca do Amaral
    This ethnographic research was conducted during the Covid-19 pandemic, a period strongly marked by the course of the disease, from the suspension of classes to the adoption of practices such as remote teaching, hybrid teaching, and later, the gradual return to in-person activities with rigorous safety protocols. It aimed to examine youth and their interactions at CEPI Professor Pedro Gomes School, located in the Campinas neighborhood in Goiânia, considering social markers of difference such as gender, sexuality, race, and social class. The central objective is to understand the relationship between youth and school, intersected by notions of body and subjectivity. Its path found, in the relationships of and with the youth, an itinerary capable of providing an understanding of adolescence and youth, permeated by a set of forces and disputes within the school, as well as in what it represents. These relationships reverberate meanings, experiences, and lived realities in the social markers of difference, as a way in which things resonate, both from a subjective and objective methodological point of view. Participant observation was a path taken by this research. The modus operandi of this movement has numerous dynamics, from interaction during breaks, in the cafeteria, in the corridors, to conversations in teachers' rooms, with the other agents that underpin the school. Furthermore, as an important structuring part, I created an elective course in the 2022/1 semester, with the participation of around 24 youth aged 15 to 18, from the 2nd and 3rd grades. Using a qualitative methodological approach, the elective was designed based on conversations with students, experiences as a school director, as well as dialogues with teachers. In this process, posters, infographics, and a three-episode audiovisual production were created, with themes structured by students as body, youth, and subjectivity. Through these dialogues, it was observed that students understand various dissonances within and outside the school. Additionally, a series of drawings were developed throughout the research journey, recorded in the field diary, which sensitively depicted a sensory portrait of life at the school. In this dimension, the experiences observed and reported in this work find a starting point in the body and corporeality, as it is where youthful identities are constructed. Furthermore, it's worth noting that this research is characterized as a multimodal ethnography, as the multiplicity of platforms and practices that marked the trajectory of the field experience create a path where drawings, texts, photographs, videos, and infographics are interconnected to produce a multisensory experience.

    “O grito das minas nas HQs”: um estudo etnográfico sobre gênero e produção gráfica narrativa
    (Universidade Federal de Goiás, 2023-07-06) Prudente, Luciane Silva de Souza; Ferreira, Glauco Batista;; Ferreira, Glauco Batista; Wichers, Camila Azevedo de Moraes; Coradini, Lisabete
    This research an ethnographic study on gender and narrative graphic production in comic books. Its aim is to analyze the narratives, practices, and visual elements present in independent comic productions created by women. The research focuses on the construction of subjectivities within the creative processes of these artists and the social relationships of these comic artists situated in the Brazilian Midwest. I seek to understand the connections between Mina de HQ, an independent feminist multi-platform media about comics made by women, trans, and non-binary artists, and the comic artists included in this research. The discussions presented in this text engage with theoretical debates in anthropology concerning fieldwork and the anthropology of emotions, advancing the review of ethnography for the internet, and the connections between online and offline research locations. It explores gender relations in comic books, the contributions of feminist movements to the comic book universe, and the insights provided by feminist anthropologies regarding the need for greater reflexivity in fieldwork constitutes and ethnographic writing. The methodological implications of this ethnography discuss aspects of George Marcus (1995) multi-sited ethnography and Sônia Maluf (2011) notion of ethnographic plateaus. For the analysis of graphic narratives, I employ a socio-anthropological approach within the discussions on the social markers of difference under the theoretical framework of intersectionality. I highlight how the drawings and production practices of comic books, as well as individual and collective experiences, bring forth new perspectives and discussions on topics such as gender, maternity, artivism, the job market, mental health, all of which are significant to contemporary anthropology.

    The present ethnography addresses the mechanisms we use to fight for our existences through the antiracist quilombola education in Extrema. We present the battles against racism in the life of my people who have been resisting by playing, wandering in the quilombo based on our ancestral disobedience and quilombo stubbornness. Thus, we try to understand between the lines of racism that my quilombola people of Extrema have been living for years. What are the implications that all the racist violence has been causing in the lives of the quilombolas? What are the mechanisms that my people from Extrema have been using as essential tools to fight and confront racism on a daily basis? We also built a methodology from the inside, and in this way, we will dialogue from life and from the history of resistance of the Quilombolas of Extrema. Our general objective is to investigate and analyze in detail the teaching and learning practices in the Quilombo of Extrema, based on the knowledge of the Quilombolas and on our science, which remains alive despite the violence they have suffered.

    This paper aims to reflect on the patrimony discourses used in the process of requalification of the Civic Square in Goiânia (Go). To this end, it uses narratives presented by actors who witnessed transformations that the public space has undergone in recent years, especially since 2003 when the Iphan (Institute of National Historical and Artistic Patrimony) approved the Dumping Dossier of the Architectural Collection and Urban Art Deco of Goiânia, consisting of a set of 22 public buildings and monuments, considered one of the most significant in Brazil. The ethnographic narrative occurs mainly through the memories of Mr. Joaquim Santana, and also of his son Márcio Carvalho, who established a kiosk where he worked and lived for over five decades. Among the elements that make up this research is the place (the kiosk), the memories, narratives and the unfolding of the patrimonial policies.

    Redes afro-indígenoafetivas: uma autoetnografia sobre trajetórias, relações e tensões entre cotistas da pós-graduação stricto sensu e políticas de ações afirmativas na Universidade Federal de Goiás

    En 2015, la Universidad Federal de Goiás (UFG) aprobó la reserva del 20% de vacantes para candidatos indígenas y negros (negros y pardos) para todos los programas de Postgrado Stricto Sensu, siendo una de las primeras en el país a tener tal política . Así, la continuidad de las acciones afirmativas que ya existían en la graduación con el programa UFGInclui, fue consolidada. Sin embargo, lo que este escenario evidencia es la necesidad de reflexiones acerca de la efectividad de las políticas de inclusión y permanencia de la institución, lo que afecta la trayectoria académica de los estudiantes cotistas. En vista de ello, mi principal objetivo es analizar las tensiones, avances, límites y conflictos para la efectividad de estas políticas de inclusión a partir de las trayectorias de los estudiantes, incluyendo la mía, y pensar en el potencial de las redes Afro-indigenoafetivas construidas en este proceso de transformación universitária.

    Uma presentificação da negligência em ações e omissões frente aos Avá-Canoeiro no médio Araguaia e no alto Tocantins: os “nós” invisíveis do poder
    (Universidade Federal de Goiás, 2022-04-20) Becker, Diego Allen; Herbetta, Alexandre Ferraz;; Herbetta, Alexandre Ferraz; Silva, Cristhian Teófilo da; Pechincha, Mônica Thereza Soares
    The following text provides an interpretation of different aspects that permeate the relationships between actors directly or indirectly involved in policies or actions to repair or compensate for the damage caused to the Avá-Canoeiro, and the positioning of these actors in relation on the indigenous people and the harm caused to them for the occupation of its territory, for economic enterprises. Based on factors exposed in works on the subject, the text analyzes some ways of acting that led companies or state institutions, which have a legal (or institutional) obligation, at least to guarantee the basics for an integrity of the well-being and well-being of the Avá-Canoeiro, to resort to the most frivolous ways of remaining silent in the face of their obligations or agreements, singed in relation to the rights of indigenous people. The work exposes some the existing contradictions between the positions adopted by actors responsible for policies or actions aimed at indigenous people, and their discourse in relation to them in their publications, or in works carried out by third parties through their direct or indirect influence. Also punctuating some changes that occurred in the forms of agency and political articulation of the Avá-Canoeiro, in relation to some works already published.

    Linha de frente na luta contra a COVID-19: narrativas dos profissionais de saúde

    The pandemic of fear, stigma and suffering of health professionals from two health units in Aparecida de Goiânia, aimed to analyze and extract from the narratives of health professionals what are the feelings experienced by them on the front line in the fight against Covid-19 during the first and second wave. For this extraction it was necessary the immersion in two health services with distinct care profiles, being the first one an Emergency Care Unit - UPA Flamboyant linked to the urgency and emergency network of Aparecida de Goiânia, gateway for suspected and/or confirmed cases for Covid-19, and the second one Epidemiological Surveillance - EV linked to the outpatient network, with minimal passable contact with possibly contaminated patients. I work in both environments reported above, and I know the profile of their service dynamics and care. In UPA Flamboyant I am in the front line in the confrontation with Covid-19 since the first suspected case that entered this unit. I was able to follow during the first two waves, March 2020 to June 2021, the unfolding of the care provided by the multi-professional team to these patients, I could see the first conflicts generated by fear, uncertainty, and ignorance of the virus. In epidemiological surveillance, I was also present when the first Covid-19 notification forms arrived in this unit, and I witnessed the fear of health professionals and administrative staff to take the forms and be contaminated, a fear that was shared by all, adding to the uncertainties that were also present, evidenced by the hesitation to take the forms without using gloves. The complexity of situations experienced during the immersion in the field sometimes blurred the boundaries between researcher and researched, the constant taking off and putting on of the lab coat allowed me to evolve with each immersion. The subtlety in perceiving myself as the "other"broadened my view of what the health-disease process is, explaining that it goes far beyond the biomedical model. To think anthropologically about this health-disease model is very expensive for those who are trained only in the biomedical model, because they will have to overcome countless barriers that will arise using this new lens. Twenty-one interlocutors were interviewed, and of these seven had not been contaminated with the Coronavirus by the time we left the field on March 6, 2021. The seven uncontaminated interlocutors were five from the UPA Flamboyant and two from the Epidemiological Surveillance. The fieldwork revealed that even in the face of an invisible evil that caused fear, stigmatization and uncertainty, the continuity of the assistance provided by health professionals, subtly was muffling and/or eliminating these feelings routinizing Covid-19.

    Understanding the challenges of Education in school environments, this research develops a look at creative and resistance techniques in teaching action capable of reframing everyday school practices. Through ethnography and dialogue with professors at the Center for Research Applied to Education - CEPAE-UFG who through a set of questions by cards were willing to share their school experiences, memories and narratives of an active teacher. To achieve this goal, a dialogue was drawn between the school and educational teaching, a smooth and striated space, based on Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, as weel as a study of Michel de Certeau's everyday life and pedagogical practices, in Paulo Freire and bell hooks ́engaged teaching. In composition, the research addresses other tactics, innovations and learning practices, allowing reflections on the possibility of an educational space between the lines of an educational space.

    Se movendo por território: os caminhos traçados pela comunidade de Sangradouro Grande para a garantia do território
    (Universidade Federal de Goiás, 2015-07-13) Acypreste, Izadora Pereira; Lima, Roberto Cunha Alves de;; Lima, Roberto Cunha Alves de; Alencar, Edna Ferreira; Herbetta, Alexandre Ferra
    The mortality and scarcity of fish, the decrease in the volume of river water, recreational fishing, lack of access to the river and the discharge of industrial sewage into the river are some of the threats frequently denounced by artisanal fishermen in the Upper Middle São Francisco. Considering that access to natural resources is essential for the reproduction of life for fishermen and fisherwomen, I understand the problems they denounce as a threat to their way of life. The anguish provoked by such accusations led me to reflect on them and understand that they are, above all, territorial issues. In this way, I believe that the right to territory and the ways to fight for that territory are fundamental and urgent discussions. Thus, this work, the result of a master's research with the riverside population of Sangradouro Grande, located in the municipality of Januária (MG), intends to discuss the ways in which this community has been seeking to defend its territory. Something that happens, as I have seen, from its articulations with social movements and its processes of identity affirmation. As the relationship with the territory is constituted from work practices on the land, in the river and also from the historical relationship with the place, I sought to understand the territory claimed by the group. While dedicating myself to these surveys, I realized that there was a multiplicity of identities being affirmed and that it was necessary to take them all into account, as they had close relations with the territory claimed by the group. Among the identities announced by them were that of fisherman, vazanteiro, peasant, rural worker and also quilombola. The territory claimed by the group is based on the fact that they carry out activities that go beyond fishing itself. In addition to the river, for example, they need the banks of the river to plant their ebb, and they also need the upper part to make clearing and harvest wood for the construction of boats. As well as the multiplicity of identities, there was also a multiplicity of alternatives through which the group could organize itself and fight for the guarantee of the territory. As the process of affirming these identities, in the case of the residents of Sangradouro Grande, establishes relationships with different groups and institutions in the state, from this field experience it was possible to perceive the relationship between the struggle for rights, political organization and affirmation of identities. It is from this perception that this work is built. His aim is to show the relationship between rights, politics and identity.
