GODOY, Daniela Bueno de Oliveira Américo de. The psychoanalytical method: research and indigenous peoples. Psicol. Am. Lat. [online]. 2017, n.spe, pp. 6-22. ISSN 1870-350X.

There are several methodological approaches regarding fieldwork. Experience and interpretation are the basic procedures for this task which includes dialogue and relations of domination. Four episodes related to the presence of indigenous peoples in the University are considered in order to calculate the subjective positions of the pair "researcher" and "Native". By analyzing the transference relationship, it is suggested that the Lacanian structure of the four discourses maps different ways of dealing with otherness: the researcher submits the other to its pre-established interpretative models; convinces his informants that their knowledge is essential to them; he produces a knowledge driven by an alleged other's demand or he keeps silent and listen to what the field displays, relaying knowledge to the field. It is expected to expand the methodological application of psychoanalysis and contribute to the debate on ethnographic authority in the humanities and social sciences.

Palabras clave : Psychoanalysis-methodology; Transference; Indians.
