Museum Education and Feminisms in Brazil: silencing, estrangement and dialogue from an intersectional and decolonial perspective
Camila Moraes Wichers

I intend to understand the relationship between Museum Education and feminisms, especially if intersectional and decolonial feminisms have found space in museum education in Brazil. I start from the hypothesis that silences and estrangements have marked this relationship, but that these dialogues are possible and urgent in the field of Sociomuseology, mainly. As specific objectives, I highlight: mapping who are the authors of the referenced productions of the compulsory subjects in the Pedagogical Projects of the Museology Courses, considering the social markers of differences; to build an overview of museum educators’ view of feminisms in their actions; to cross the data of the authors cited in the specialized bibliography with the data of the educators who are working in the museum institutions, also bringing a specific look at some of the institutions highlighted in the data collected. I start from constructions made by Juliana Siqueira (2017; 2019) and Martha Marandino (2009), as well as seek to articulate the intersectional and decolonial feminist perspective with Sociomuseology as a school of thought, from authors such as Lélia Gonzales (1984), Catherine Walsh (2013) and Camila Moraes Wichers (2018).
