Urban Boundaries Space - The place of the critical research/researcher in the capitalist wile
Mônica Mesquita (Lisbon University, Portugal)
This (working progress) paper is a deep outburst! Its central aim is to propose some thoughts around our situationality as critical researchers and around the position that our researches occupy in the capitalist wile. The systematization of the presented arguments came from a historical reflexion in my young path as researcher and educator, auto-categorized as critical. The discourse starts from a brief introduction of some points of view over our choices, questioning our position of freedom, going to the political flows of our survival, and questioning the role of our production, reproduction, and contradiction while critical researchers. I do not bring new ideas; I only take timely this meeting to make a claim, or an invitation, to discuss our posture in a sense to pass us for another stage as critical researchers.
