Body and sexuality in teaching: notes to a foucaultian reading

Andressa Camões Hilgert de Oliveira, Deniz Alcione Nicolay


The present article aims to analyze textual production developed in Nature Science field, making it possible to identify and map different conceptions of body and sexuality presented. Therefore, we searched for articles in CAPES Journal Portal, published in several top level journals, using as search mechanism the words “body”, “sexuality”, “conceptions” and “Nature Science”, achieving a qualitative approach of the results that were found. A total of 12 articles was selected, published between the years 2004 and 2020, indexed in SciELO Brazil and Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) platforms, considering four qualis extract (A1, A2, B1, B2), quadrennium 2013-2016. Obtained results were in an effort of verify that many conceptions found are away from the traditionally used in Science teaching, based almost exclusively in biomedical concepts. What we found was a great concern to conceptualize body and sexuality as part of the subject that is put in the world. Basically, we tried to find foucaultian conceptions of body/corporeality and their relation to sexuality, as well as the importance of the application of these conceptions in teaching and in the formation of subjects more aware of themselves.
