Infância, Dizer infantil, Experiências


This work rescues a " childish telling" presented in the last section of the master's research, conducted between 2014 and 2016 in the Graduate Program in Education of the Universidade Federal de Alagoas (PPGE/UFAL), whose theme brings “OS ENIGMAS DE INFÂNCIA E EXPERIÊNCIAS EM UMA ESCOLA PÚBLICA DA CIDADE DE MACEIÓ/AL: o que revelam?” Thus, this research is an inaugural desire to think childhood in the state of Alagoas. We seek, in this research, to know the daily life of children in order to question which puzzles permeate the childhood and experience theme. For this research, we dialogue with the child of Nietzsche, from this Zarathustra character in "The three Metamorphoses" vision. With Kohan (2007, 2011), we make a childish reading of childhood, in a non determined time; the "aion time" of Heraclitus child. Larrosa (2009, 2013) brings us another understanding of experience in that it, as the child of Nietzsche and childhood in Kohan (2007, 2011) is used with the intention to break a linguistic comfort that seeks to be consistent and true. The theme of this symposium Mundos que se tecem entre “nosotros”: o ato de educar em uma língua ainda por ser escrita, changes us once it forces us to leave, even for a single moment, the adult language of philosophy and run the risk of writing and listening in a children's language. In this perspective, this work brings one of the master's research records. In it, there is a “childish telling” that a public school draws from its own experiences, whose language cannot be deciphered. And neither could.
