Associated to the scholarship:16/12736-0 - Embedded in the land: an ethnography of the struggle of the people of Trombas and Formoso (GO), BP.DR


The goal of this proposal is to improve and move forward the discussions I started in my PhD research, an ethnography of the practices of movement and knowledge of the inhabitants of Trombas and Formoso in the north of the state of Goiás - Brazil. In this research, I try to understand the rhythms,pathways and the sciences which guided the movement of the struggle for the land occurred in the 1950s. Hence, I think of the contrasts, the variation and the rhythms of walking of people which cover the landscapes and pathways that gather narratives and memories from the earliest times of wilderness. Therefore, the ethnography follows the walking of people who arrivered, stayed and settled in the lands, in a kind of stay that rearranges the practices of the movement and the sciences. They are part of the memories of a struggle that is presented in an official historiography as an armed, and conflictive event, and by its engagement with the Communist Brazilian Party (PCB). However, I have considered as a hypothesis the experience of the strug. (AU)
