MACEDO, João Paulo  and  DIMENSTEIN, Magda. Academic writing and self writing: experiences challenges. Mental [online]. 2009, vol.7, n.12, pp. 153-166. ISSN 1679-4427.

This essay focus on the traditional modes of academic writing based on the experiences of some authors who, when producing potentially subjectivating texts, are guided by their own thoughts and feelings. We make a reflection on the ways we can produce academic writing so as to create empowered self-writing. The main idea is that we can experiment ourselves through different ways of being when producing academic texts. This possibility is an action defined by Foucault and others in the field of art and philosophy of the difference as an exercise in freedom, since it is, effectively, a matter of looking inside ourselves, recreating our own existence through our writings.

Keywords : Production of knowledge; Writing; Governance; Subjectification; Self-care.
