ANDRADE, Michelle Silva de  and  MACHADO, Marília Novais da Mata. Constitution of the subjectivity by imprisoned women. Pesqui. prát. psicossociais [online]. 2016, vol.11, n.1, pp. 249-265. ISSN 1809-8908.

Adopting the reflections of Michel Foucault on modes of subjectivation as main theoretical framework, we conducted aesthetic workshops with imprisoned women in a feminine Social Reintegration Center of the Protection and Assistance to Convicts Association (APAC) in Minas Gerais, Brazil. With the consent of the arrested and of the institution, the workshops were recorded. The transcript of women's speech allowed to build a research corpus whose analysis revealed the practices that, in prison, constitute them as subjects, their objectifications of themselves, their subjection to the rules, their moral codes, values ​​and principles of conduct, their responses to bans, prohibitions, constraints, their care and practices of themselves, their relationships with their bodies and their searches for liberation.

Keywords : Prison; modes of subjectivation; discourse analysis.
