SANTOS, Juliana Araújo  and  MIRANDA, Sheila Ferreira. The marks of intersectionality in the trajectories of three black scholar women. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.14, n.1, pp. 1-25. ISSN 1983-8220.

In this research, we propose to rethink the place of black women in academic environments, which supposedly constitute spaces for democratic production of knowledge and professionals committed to social reality and its fissures. Through the method of thematic oral history, three black female university professors were interviewed, in an attempt to understand the meanings assumed and given to the transformations experienced throughout their school and academic lives. In this way, we seek to understand the characteristics and contradictions of the identity process of these women and to understand how the intersectional marks of race, gender and social status permeate their existences and their political projects; guided, above all, by the ethics of emancipation.

Keywords : Identity; Race; Gender; Working class; Professors.
