RODRIGUES, Heliana de Barros Conde. Oral History as an intercessor: dessujecting social researchers. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2010, vol.10, n.1, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1808-4281.
This paper, appealing to the concept of intercessor, aims to construct an Oral History as epistemological-narrative device of invention. Today the oralists don’t need to demonstrate the cientificity of Oral History; they need to use Oral History as a critic of hierarchical forms of classifying knowledges, and the contributions of Alessandro Portelli are decisive in that scope. In addition, the Bruno Latour’s book Changer de société. Refaire de la sociologie allows to create a new interception which potencializes Portelli’s contributions in order to rethink representativeness and reflectivity in social research.
