This research, carried out between the years 2015 to 2020, funded by FAPESP (São Paulo Research Foundation, process no 2015 / 05237-4), proposed to study how the affective impacts, produced by the pedagogical practices of Youth and Adult Education are internalized in the meaning areas, building new meanings and modifying the subjective identity of adult students in the process of literacy. The research work in this field was started during the undergraduate course, with Scientific Initiation and Course Completion Work, and deepened in the master's degree; such research was carried out at the Faculty of Education of UNICAMP, both with funding from FAPESP. In the doctorate, the research identified the repercussion of the construction of new senses and meanings resulting from the insertion process in the social practices of reading and writing, resulting in new subjective constitutions for adults. It was based on historical-cultural theory, most on two important concepts by Vigotski (1998) - senses and meanings - outlining an understanding of how affectivity is integrated into the human development process, mainly in the construction of individual senses and unique for each person, constituting their subjective identity, impacting socially shared meanings. It was also guided by Wallon's contributions (1968) to the study of the human affective dimension. Data collection was based on the qualitative methodology, with interviews and the autoscopy procedure, in which the subject was confronted with his video-recorded image and was encouraged, by the researcher, to verbalize about the feelings experienced in the situation on screen , generating the primary data. Such data were transcribed and grouped into meaning cores, identifying the different meanings constructed by the subjects in the experienced process. The research discussed how the construction of new senses and meanings, for adults in the process of literacy, results in an understanding of themselves as active and capable subjects, making them potential factors for transformation in their communities. The study affirms its social relevance for corroborating conceptions that defend Youth and Adult Education as an instrument to change an unfair social reality (AU)
