The objective of the clinic of activity is to propose a framework so that work can be or become an object of reflection for the professionals themselves, in order to allow the development of their power to act. The field intervention presented here highlights that, in a context of analysis of everyday activities by the professionals themselves, it is transformation, by the daily exercise of their profession, by stylistic variations of the gender - speifically that of mathematics teachers of universities in France - that produces an effect of genericity, leading to the emergence of new forms of professional gender. At first, the concepts tested by the research will be presented in the article. Then, it will focus on showing, in a speific case, how these concepts enable the understanding of the processes conducting professionals to changes in ways of conceiving and performing the work and, thus, renewing the objectives of their professional activities. And how, in addition, these professionals acquired a new, personal and collective competence of questioning their activities and professions.

Keywords : Activity; Professional activities gender; Stylistic variations of gender.
