Body, gender and sexuality in teacher training: a meta-analysis

Alfrancio Ferreira Dias, Simone Silveira Amorim


This paper aims at systematizing the specific literature on body, gender, sexuality and education, identifying the methodological process that produced the different explanation patterns found. Methodologically, introducing the meta-analysis as a research technique in Human Sciences, we intended to contribute to the construction of a literature review in a systematic way in order to guarantee the increase in accumulation and the reliability of the production of scientific knowledge. It was found that, regardless of the type of research used (Case Studies, Small N Studies, Large N Studies) and effect found (Nsig, Sig and Mixed Results), one feature is common among the analyzed studies regarding body, gender, sexuality and teacher training: the fact that all (with varying degrees of intensity) suggest that the thematic approach contributes to the destabilization of norms, ratings and rankings in the field of education.

Keywords: body; teacher training; gender; sexuality


Body. Teacher Training. Genre. Sexuality.
