SILVEIRA, Catharina da Cunha; MEYER, Dagmar Elisabeth Estermann  e  FELIX, Jeane. Gendering intersectoriality in Brazil’s Health in School Program. R. Bras. Est. Pedag. [online]. 2019, vol.100, n.255, pp.423-442. ISSN 2176-6681.

Grounded on gender studies and on the cultural studies related to the Foucauldian theorization, this paper uses documental research and cultural analysis to scrutinize how intersectorial work is defined, described and regulated in regulatory documents and didactic materials of the Health in School Program (Programa Saúde na Escola - PSE), in order to discuss how gender crosses and configures one of its organizing principles - the intersectoriality. The analysis highlights what is said and what is silenced, as well as how and in which circumstances and power-knowledge relations certain things may be enunciated. It argues that, within PSE, notions like “to sum up efforts”, “to unite” and “to articulate” are used to propose ways of doing education and/in health. Such ways demand adaptability, multi-functionality, flexibility, and disposition to take on extra work, with no additional pay. It highlights that this process of ‘gendering intersectoriality’ is detached from sexed-biological bodies, but remains (re)building, reiterating, and legitimizing professional practices that naturalize actions, places and institutional arrangements that dispose of feminine attributes as functional resources to serve the needs of the intersectorial policy proposal herein.
