In our reading and writing practices, mainly those mediated by contemporary digital medias, we are invited to take for ourselves various works as groups of excerpts or highlighted 'phrases'. These repositories, digital or printed, allow us to have contact with 'fragmented' content of various knowledge fields and imply on changes, but also continuity relating to past reading and writing practices. In our Ph.D. research, "De usos no passado a usos no presente: uma análise discursiva da escrita de cadernos de lugar-comum", we devote to analyze these reading and writing practices that resemble to the humanistic technique of commonplace books composition and that are indicted in notebooks from brazilian intellectuals from centuries XIX to XX. On this RIA (BEPE) research board, we focus mainly, with this scholarship abroad, to conduct theoretical and historical studies in the french libraries' collections related to the development of this reading and writing humanistic technique that comes from the commonplace books, under the supervision of Dr. Jean Hébrard, renowned historian about these practices and an importante researcher of Brazil's written history. Beyond this theoretical-historical bias, we intend to analyze part of our research's corpus during the scholarship period, to note, the Rui Barbosa (jurist, politician and writer) and Florestan Fernandes (sociologist)'s notebooks. It will be of high importance to be able to enroll into Cultural History of Reading and Writing courses, as well as french-oriented Discourse Analysis, especially those whose teachers are devoted to study the detachment of phrases and their contemporary use.
