LANNA, Paloma de Almeida Albergaria; SILVA, Matheus Henrique  and  CALAIS, Lara Brum de. "Rocket or Shot?: ": the Production of Youth Subjectivity from the Territory. Pesqui. prát. psicossociais [online]. 2021, vol.16, n.1, pp. 1-17. ISSN 1809-8908.

This article aims to analyze the effects that the territory produces in the construction of the subjectivity of the young population, living in a peripheral neighborhood of the city of Juiz de Fora / MG. The research is based on the methodological framework of the Participatory Research-Participant Action and has as a tool for gathering information, the focus group, mediated by the script with questions triggering the discussion. Altogether, 10 young girls and boys participated in the research. Through the focus groups, it was possible to understand that the territory exerts a great influence in the construction of subjectivities, especially in the category of youth, and in this same territory, is crossed by several other factors such as violence, drug trafficking and fear. All these questions compose the realities and forge concepts about the subjects that inhabit them, thus influencing routes, habits and feelings of belonging to a place.

Keywords : Youth; Subjectivity; Territory; Social Psychology.
