RODRIGUEZ CEJA, María Concepción. Unconventional-multifunctional theater as a strategy for social research with the population confined in penitentiary centers. Relac. Estud. hist. soc. [online]. 2023, vol.44, n.176, pp.20-35.  Epub Jan 19, 2024. ISSN 2448-7554.

The objective of this work is to account for the strategies and challenges of doing social research in prisons. In that same situation, it also seeks to reflect on the giving and receiving during the investigative process in these spaces of confinement. From an anthropological approach, and assuming that the research is a performance, it proposes reflective, lateral, collaborative, and creative ethnography in conjunction with unconventional and multifunctional theater are useful tools in prisons not only to face the challenges of this type of space but also to generate benefits in multiple ways. In short, these methodologies applications allow us to rethink what we give and receive in these contexts and research in general.

Keywords : Prisons; Unconventional-multifunctional theater; Lateral-reflexive-collaborative-creative ethnography.
