BATTISTELLI, Bruna Moraes; FRANCESCHINI, Erica; NOVAIS, Flávia Luciana Magalhães  and  GUIMARAES, Willian. The act of narrating and the production of knowledge in social psychology. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2021, vol.11, n.1, pp.162-182. ISSN 2238-152X.

This article aims to discuss theoretical possibilities regarding women's narratives, presenting an essay composed of plural voices, starting from the field of Social Psychology, in order to pluralize their references in face of what affects / at the present time and which permeates the pertinent discussions to gender studies. Therefore, we seek to start a conversation with authors who do not usually partake on texts in this area, such as Conceição Evaristo. Our methodology focus is based on the idea of narration as a mean of reproducing stories of women who, in turn, generates knowledge; we present their narratives through an intersectional bias, whether in a discussion that takes into account markers of race, gender and/or social class. As such, we agree with the idea that generating knowledge in Psychology can happen through bringing to light new narratives, in which these women are recognized as protagonists and spokespeople of their own stories.

Keywords : women; narratives; knowledge production; decolonize.
