ROCHA PEREIRA, Wilza. THE KNOWLEDGE PRODUCTION ON NURSING ON A DECENTRALIZED AND ADVERSE CONTEX. Cienc. enferm. [online]. 2012, vol.18, n.1, pp. 9-16. ISSN 0717-9553. doi: 10.4067/S0717-95532012000100002.
This is a refection with which I aimed to understand some of the aspects of the process of knowledge production on nursing, on a decentralized and adverse context. The study was problematized using concepts of gender and of Bourdieu’s idea of scientific field. Producing scientific knowledge on nursing is generally an activity made by women, who add researching to all their further daily activities. For this activity we still lack many of the objective conditions that are fundamental for a successful knowledge production process, and also essential for surviving on the scientific field. On peripheral contexts, like the one we act, knowing the adversities and problematization from some flexible theoretical concepts, may contribute to our permanence on scientific field.
