ANCTIL AVOINE, Priscyll. Transiting the everyday: Autobiographical method in gender studies in Bucaramanga, Colombia. Sinéctica [online]. 2019, n.52, 00006. ISSN 2007-7033.

The present article is situated in an unexplored embodied geography with relation to Gender Studies and Alternative Feminist Pedagogies: the department of Santander in Colombia, located in the north eastern part of the country. It presents the results of empirical application of the autobiographical method created with the aim of considering possibilities to decolonize learning processes in university gender courses. As such, the purpose of this article is to explore the implementation of this method in two Colombian universities, one private and the other public, based on observations notes as well as on the interactions between the students and the teacher, suggesting that Feminist Theory can be thought from embodied reality, subjectivity and sexualities. Anchored in Decolonial Feminist Pedagogies, the article finally proposes, in a self-reflexive way, to explore the relevance and the possibilities offered by the autobiographical method in Gender Studies.

Keywords : gender; autobiographical method; Colombia; decolonial deminist pedagogies.
