POMBO, Mariana. Contemporary Discourses on Transexualities: Power, Truth and Subjectivation. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2020, vol.20, n.3, pp. 770-789. ISSN 1808-4281.

Based on Foucault's conception of the relations between knowledge and power, this article intends to present some contemporary discourses on transexualities and to problematize their effects on psychoanalytic clinic of transexual patients. First, I will analyze how some generalizing and/or pathologizing discourses on transexualities, produced in the fields of psychoanalysis and medicine, function as laws of truth and affect the way transexuals understand themselves and are understood and treated. Then I will use some authors from queer theory and psychoanalysis to defend the possibility of new regards on transexualities and also new directions for clinical listening nowadays.

Palavras-chave : transexualities; discourse; power; queer theory; psychoanalysis.
