Les sens du je Réflexivité et objectivation des rapports sociaux

Abstract : The starting point of this work is the analysis of sexual and gendered injunctions that marred my research work, forcing me to think about my position and make an “I”, heterosexual woman. It will then show all the difference that there is between this effort and academic veridiction an analysis of the epistemological foundations of experience; but also between purely factual and descriptive work to say “woman” and the awareness of what this means in terms of social relations, particularly in the academic space. This item is therefore not so much attempt to report a path or mediated by a singular experience “I” to think how the lack of experience – the fact of experience, to feel, living situation or share a condition – may eventually be mobilized to disqualify a job search. Using the experience inherited from the feminist dictum “the personal is political” is a political foundation gay studies. But far from obvious, it should question this evidence and analyze the epistemological foundations to better knowledge base in geography sexualities. It is especially important to think about the political use of academic véridictions or how the production of truth about oneself is at the expense of a critical analysis of power relations.
