Abstract

The work can be understood as a re-reading of the master's research in which we unveil the configurations of capoeira in Sergipe in the 19th century. In discussions about the origin of capoeira, a social practice that is present in more than 170 countries, few disagree about this movement having its birthplace in Brazilian lands. The objective of the research is to understand which discursive practices produce the knowledge racially and morally marked between segregation and the resistance of capoeira subjects. In this sense, we intend with this work to answer the following research problem: What are the discursive practices that produce knowledge that is racially and morally marked between segregation and the resistance of capoeira subjects? For the present research, the sociologists Norbert Elias and Antonio Gramsci and the philosopher Michel Foucault sought to mobilize the concepts of figuration, network of interdependence and hegemony, and the discourses on the social practice of capoeira, respectively.
