Writings on walls: tensions in the university context. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2019, vol.9, n.1, pp.167-185. ISSN 2238-152X.

This study aims at discussing the written communication on the walls of a federal public university, a communication that highlights the tensions of the relations established in contemporary cities. The writings on these spaces are approached as utterances in discursive fields, as presented in Bakhtin's philosophy of language, and articulated to discussions on the process of spectacularization of the cities, highlighting the distancing among people. The analysis reveals the arena of social voices constituted in the daily life of the university, and comprehends the writings as forms of resistance to the institutional attempt to harmonize spaces and discourses based on the order of conservation of the public patrimony.

Keywords : wall writings; dialogism; spectacularization; university students.
