FERNANDES, Saulo Luders; ZAKABI, Denise  and  CALEGARE, Marcelo Gustavo Aguilar. Social humiliation and rural environments: discussions based on research in three rural communities. Rev. psicol. polít. [online]. 2016, vol.16, n.37, pp. 287-303. ISSN 1519-549X.

In this paper we aim to reflect on psychosocial issues related to social humiliation in different rural contexts, through a common discussion of three different research experiences in different rural communities. The first work presents reports of social humiliation experienced by the inhabitants of a quilombo in the rough of Alagoas during attendances in health services. The second report brings experiences of social humiliation by young people in an agrarian settlement off the coast of Ceará. The third report addresses the social humiliation of residents of Amazonas' riverine communities when they go to the city in search of urban services. The discussions of the common elements to these researches contribute to understand how social humiliation, as a psycho-political phenomenon, manifests itself in different rural contexts. In conclusion, we point the necessity to break with fatalism, to strengthen the struggles for rights and to reflect on the political of these communities in face of suffering.
