PAULIN, Horacio Luis et al. Theatrical Representation as a Qualitative Research Device Aimed at Inquiring Senses About Young People´S School Experience. Psicoperspectivas [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.2, pp.134-155. ISSN 0718-6924.

In this paper we analyze a theatrical device aimed at inquiring senses built by secondary school youngsters about inter and intragenerational relations at school. We propose a working model that fosters the expression of conflict concerning school living together, through dramatic representations, recorded documentation, and the register of situations and critical incidents which occur at school and have students as protagonists. Such research approach is positioned at collaborating research, which implies the construction of dialogic relations with the group of actors, tending to the cooperation of the university research team to cope with specific institutional demands. We analyze the accomplishments of this kind of technique in the inquiry of problems with youngsters because of the possibility to gain access to the expressive and emotional registers that contribute to the understanding of the analytic categories built from conversational strategies.

Keywords : senses; conflict; youth; secondary education; device.
