  • IN THE WINGS OF THE CAPITAL: EMBRAER, financialization and implications
           about the workers

    • Abstract: O objeto de análise deste artigo é o processo de crescente financeirização na empresa líder em aeronáutica no Brasil, a EMBRAER – Empresa Brasileira de Aeronáutica S.A, hoje, apenas EMBRAER S.A –, e os impactos sobre seus trabalhadores diretos e indiretos. A EMBRAER é a terceira maior produtora de aviões comerciais do mundo, cujo patamar de concorrência a faz primar por tendências organizacionais hegemônicas em âmbito mundial. A investigação, centrada em análise de conteúdo, a partir de documentos oficiais e pesquisas científicas até então publicadas, constatou quatro principais momentos de imbricação entre capital produtivo e capital fictício desde a sua privatização, em 1994, até o ano de 2012, quando se encerra a pesquisa: 1) a partir da década de 1990, quando a empresa foi privatizada; 2) de forma mais determinante, no início dos anos 2000, com a produção de aviões comerciais da família EMBRAER 170/190; 3) com a posterior pulverização de capitais, em 2006; e, por fim, 4) na mudança de razão social para fins de ampliação de áreas de atuação da empresa, em 2010. O contexto em que se dão tais mudanças é o de mundialização do capital e prevalência de acumulação fictícia de capital, com fortes impactos sobre intensificação do uso da força de trabalho.The object of analysis in this article is the process of increasing financialization in the leading aeronautics company in Brazil, Brazilian Aeronautics Company S.A, (nowadays, only called EMBRAER S.A), and the impact on their direct and indirect workers. EMBRAER is the third biggest manufacturer of commercial airplanes in the world; thus, the level of competition makes the company privilege hegemonic organizational trends of global level. This investigation, centered on content analysis from official documents and scientific research published until then, verified four main moments of interconnections between productive capital and fictitious capital since its privatization in 1994, until 2012 when the research was finished. Thus, four moments come to light: 1) the 1990s, when the company was privatized; 2) in a determinant way, the beginning of the 2000’s with the manufacture of commercial airplanes EMBRAER 170/190; 3) the posterior pulverization of capital in 2006; and, finally, 4) the change of the corporate name for the purpose of expanding the areas of activity of the company in 2010. The context of such changes is that of the globalization of capital and the predominance of fictitious accumulation of capital with strong impacts in the intensification of workforce use.Le sujet de cet article est le processus de financiarisation croissante dans l’entreprise leuder de l’industrie d’aviation brésilienne, EMBRAER – Entreprise Brésilienne d’Aéronautique S.A, aujourd’hui, seulement EMBRAER S.A –, et ses concéquences sur le travail et ses travailleurs directs et indirects. L’EMBRAER est la troisième plus grande productrice d’avions commerciaux du monde, dont le niveau de la concurrence l’induit a donner la priorité à des tendances organisationnelles hégémoniques dans le contexte mondial. La recherche, concentrée sur l’analyse de contenu, à partir des documents officiels et des recherches scientifiques jusqu’à ce moment publiées, a identifié quatre principaux moments de forte chevauchement entre capital fictif et capital productif depuis sa privatisation, en 1994, jusqu’à l’année de 2012, quand quand la recherche se ferme: 1) à partir de 1994, quand l’entreprise a été privatisé ; 2) De façon déterminante, dans le début des années 2000, avec la production des avions commerciaux de la famille EMBRAER 170/190 ; 3) avec la subséquent pulvérisation des capitaux, en 2006; et, enfin, 4) aprés le changement de la dénomination sociale dont l’objectif était élargir les zones d’opération de l’entreprise, en 2010. Le contexte dans lequel ces changements se produisent est la mondialisation du capital avec la prévalence de l’accumulation de capital fictif , qui a des forts impacts sur l’utilisation intensifiée de la main-d’œuvre.
           and flexibility

    • Abstract: O objeto deste artigo é a face qualificada-especializada do trabalho imigrante, relacionada com o circuito legalizado da imigração. Examina-se a bibliografia e os diferentes tratamentos teóricos do tema, enfatizando a pertinência do prisma do “mercado global dos recursos humanos qualificados”. A manifestação desses fluxos no Brasil (2007-2014) é analisada a partir das estatísticas do Ministério da Saúde e do Ministério do Trabalho e Emprego sobre o regime de visto, a composição de sexo e de nacionalidade. Uma seção é dedicada aos “marítimos globais” e aos médicos cubanos, por representarem um caso emblemático das novas bases sócio-históricas de desenvolvimento do fenômeno da imigração no país. Por fim, será feito um balanço sobre a ligação desses fluxos com movimentos de precarização do trabalho, em particular no que se refere à temporalidade e à flexibilidade.The object of this article is the qualified-specialized characteristic of immigrant work related to the legalized circuit of immigration. The references and the different theoretical backgrounds are evaluated highlighting the relevance of the “global market for qualified human resources”. The manifestation of these fluxes in Brazil (2007-2014) is analyzed based on the statistics of the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Labor and Employment about the visa regime, the composition of gender and nationality. A section is dedicated to “global maritimes”, and Cuban doctors, because they represent an emblematic case in the new sociohistorical bases of development of the immigration phenomenon in the country. Finally, a balance will be made about the link between these issues and the movements of labor precariousness, in particular those regarding temporality and flexibility.L’objet de cet article est la face qualifiée du travail immigré, lié au circuit d’immigration légalisé. La bibliographie et les différentes aproches théoriques du theme seront examinées, en particulier le prisme du «marché mondial des ressources humaines qualifiées.” La manifestation de ces flux au Brésil (2007-2014) est analysée à partir des statistiques du Ministère de la Santé et du Ministère du Travail et de L’emploi sur le régime des visas et la composition de sexe et nationalité. Une section est consacrée au travail des «maritimes globaux» et des médecins cubains, parce qu’ils représentent des cas emblématiques de la nouvelle base socio-historique du développement du phénomène de l’immigration au Brésil. Enfin, la connexion de ces flux avec les mouvements de précarisation du travail sera consideré, en particulier en ce qui concerne la temporalité et la flexibilité.

    • Abstract: Este artigo analisa o trabalho no setor de confecção a partir de pesquisa realizada na cidade de São Paulo. Debruçando-se mais especificamente sobre o trabalho em domicílio e dos imigrantes, discutem-se as condições de trabalho no setor a partir da configuração das cadeias de valor e da divisão internacional do trabalho que ela promove, gerando uma nova dinâmica nas formas de precariedade que sempre marcaram o setor.

  • RECUPERATED FACTORIES BY WORKERS: the dilemmas of collective management of

    • Abstract: Este artigo objetiva analisar os dilemas da gestão coletiva em fábricas recuperadas pelos trabalhadores no Brasil, organizadas, em sua maioria, na década de 1990. Essas fábricas foram estruturadas ora como cooperativas, ora como formas híbridas de gestão, num contexto de reestruturação econômica e aumento do desemprego, para manter postos de trabalho. Em geral, elas tiveram apoio de sindicatos, e progressivamente se inseriram no movimento de Economia Solidária que se institucionalizou na década seguinte. Após 20 anos do surgimento dos primeiros empreendimentos desse tipo, buscamos não só verificar como eles se mantiveram no mercado e se adaptaram às mudanças político-econômicas do período, mas também analisar sua relação com as propostas originais de autogestão. A pesquisa teve um recorte longitudinal, buscando estudar fábricas analisadas anteriormente (no final dos anos 1990) e que permaneciam em atividade. Também foram realizadas entrevistas com lideranças e trabalhadores dos empreendimentos, bem como com lideranças de instituições de apoio como a ANTEAG e a UNISOL Brasil. Embora os ideais do cooperativismo e da chamada autogestão permaneçam presentes nos discursos de muitos trabalhadores, sua efetivação encontra muitos obstáculos na prática, uma vez que, para serem viáveis, as fábricas recuperadas enfrentam muitas pressões do mercado, que acabam por modificar alguns de seus objetivos iniciais.This article aims to analyze the dilemmas of the collective management in factories recuperated by workers in Brazil organized mostly in the 1990s. These factories were structured either as cooperatives or as hybrid forms of management, in a context of economic restructuring and of rising unemployment, in order to keep jobs. Generally, they had the support of labor unions, and progressively became part of the Solidarity Economy movement, which was institutionalized in the following decade. 20 years after the advent of the first projects of this kind, we sought not only to verify how they remained in the market and how they adapted to the political-economic changes of the period, but also to analyze their relation to the original proposals of self-management. This article has a longitudinal scope, seeking to study factories analyzed previously (in the late 1990s), which remained in activity. In addition, interviews with leaders and workers of the projects were made, as well as with leaders of support institutions such as ANTEAG and UNISOL Brazil. Although the ideals of cooperativism and self-management remain present in many workers’ speech, its implementation has found many obstacles in practice since recuperated factories in order to become viable endure many market pressures, which eventually modify some of their initial objectives.L’objectif de cet article est d’analyser les dilemmes de la gestion collective dans des fabriques récupérées par les travailleurs au Brésil et qui se sont organisées, dans leur plus grand nombre au cours des années 1990. Ces fabriques ont été structurées soit comme des coopératives soit sous des formes hybrides d’administration, dans un contexte de restructuration économique et d’augmentation du chômage, afin de pouvoir maintenir des postes de travail. En général elles ont eu le soutien de syndicats et se sont insérées progressivement dans le mouvement de l’Economie Solidaire qui s’est institutionalisée dans la décennie suivante. Vingt ans après l’appartition des premières entreprises de ce genre nous nous proposons non seulement de vérifier comment elles se maintiennent sur le marché et se sont adaptées aux changements politiques et économiques de cette période mais aussi d’analyser leur relation avec les propositions à l’origine de l’autogestion. La recherche s’est faite sur une coupure longitudinale pour essayer d’étudier les fabriques analysées antérieurement (à la fin des années 1990) et qui sont toujours en activité. Des interviews ont également été réalisées avec des leaders et des employés de ces entreprises ainsi qu’avec des responsables d’institutions de soutien telles que l’ANTEAG et l’UNISOL Brésil. Même si les idéaux du coopérativisme et de la dite autogestion sont toujours présents dans les discours de beaucoup de travailleurs, dans la pratique leur mise en place est confrontée à de nombreux obstacles vu que, pour rester viables, les fabriques récupérées affrontent les pressions du marché qui finissent par modifier quelques-uns de leurs objectifs initiaux.

    • Abstract: O artigo apresenta um entendimento dos empreendimentos econômicos solidários a partir da realidade multiforme da economia solidária no Brasil. Trata-se de um conjunto variado de iniciativas ainda em busca de identidade institucional e de um arcabouço jurídico condizente, que não cabem no cooperativismo tradicional nem no chamado terceiro setor. Valendo-se de um conjunto de estudos já conduzidos, tanto em termos de conceituação e formulação tipológica como de desenho etnográfico, o texto reflete sobre a configuração plural dos empreendimentos solidários, analisando diferentes atores sociais em foco, urbanos, rurais e tradicionais, procurando demonstrar a diversidade cultural e simbólica ali existente, bem como suas múltiplas origens e desafios atuais, a exemplo da busca de um marco legal específico para o campo.This article presents a comprehension of solidarity economic projects from the multiform reality of solidarity economy in Brazil. This article is a varied set of initiatives still seeking institutional identity and a proper legal framework, since they do not fit into traditional cooperativism or the so-called third sector. Using a set of studies conducted both in terms of conceptualization and of typological formulation such as ethnographic design, this study discusses the plural configuration of solidarity projects, analyzing different social actors in focus, such as urban, rural and traditional environments. It tries to demonstrate the cultural and symbolic diversity that exist, as well as its multiple origins and current challenges, as an example of the search for a specific legal milestone for the field.L’article présente une compréhension des entreprises économiques solidaires à partir de la réalité multiforme de l’économie solidaire au Brésil. Il s’agit d’un ensemble varié d’initiatives qui est encore à la recherche d’une identité institutionnelle et d’une ébauche juridique adaptée qui n’entre pas dans la conception de coopérativisme traditionnel ni dans le dit troisième secteur. En se basant sur un ensemble d’études déjà réalisées, autant en termes de conceptualisation et de formulation typologique que de dessin etnographique, le texte montre la configuration plurielle des entreprises solidaires en analysant les divers acteurs sociaux mis en évidence, urbains, ruraux et traditionnels et essaie de démontrer la diversité culturelle et symbolique existante ainsi que leurs origines multiples et leurs défis actuels, tel que par exemple la recherche d’un label légal spécifique pour le monde rural.

    • Abstract: Este artigo tem por objeto a morte por exaustão no trabalho, descrevendo e analisando condições de trabalho no setor sucroalcooleiro de Ribeirão Preto e região (SP). Como objetivos, busca-se relacionar jornada exaustiva de trabalho à exigência de produção por metas e as condições de trabalho análogas à escravidão, assim como se levanta a hipótese da ocorrência de mortes de trabalhadores por exaustão, pela combinação de péssimas condições de trabalho com exigências de alto desempenho. Como procedimentos metodológicos, são analisados os atestados de óbito de oito trabalhadores e as causae mortis de vinte trabalhadores mortos no corte de cana e investigam-se as causas declaradas (parada cardiorrespiratória, pancreatite, acidente cerebral hemorrágico, infarto do miocárdio, causas desconhecidas, entre outras). Foram realizadas entrevistas com familiares (pai, mãe, esposa ou viúva, irmão) para se conhecerem as condições de saúde do(a) trabalhador(a) ao partir para o trabalho no corte de cana-de-açúcar. Com base nessa metodologia, os resultados alcançados permitem manter a hipótese de que a morte por exaustão está presente também no setor sucroalcooleiro.This paper aims to analyze death from overwork, describing and analyzing work conditions in the sugarcane sector in the city of Ribeirão Preto (SP). We seek to trace a relationship between overwork and the requirement of production targets, and working conditions analogous to slavery. It is also presented the hypothesis that the occurrence of deaths of workers from overwork is due to poor working conditions combined with high performance exigencies. The methodological procedures consist of the analysis of death certificates of eight workers, and the causae mortis of twenty dead workers while working at cane cutting. The declared causes, such as cardiac arrest, pancreatitis, hemorrhagic stroke, myocardial infarction, unknown cases, among others, are investigated. Interviews were made with relatives (father, mother, wife or widow, siblings) in order to determine the health condition of the workers before they started working in cane cutting. Based on this methodology, the results obtained permit us to maintain the hypothesis that death from overwork is also present at the sugarcane sector.L’objet de cet article est la mort par épuisement au travail. On y décrit et on y analyse les conditions de travail dans le domaine du sucre et de l’alcool à Ribeirão Preto et sa région (dans l’état de Sao Paulo). Les objectifs de cette recherche sont d’établir le lien entre une journée épuisante de travail et l’exigence d’une production sur résultats et des conditions de travail analogues à celles de l’esclavage.On soulève également l’hypothèse de cas de décès dus à l’épuisement vu des conditions de travail très mauvaises liées à des exigences de haute rentabilité. La méthodologie utilisée est l’analyse des actes de décès de huit travailleurs et de leur causae mortis et de vingt travailleurs décédés dans l’activité de coupe de la canne à sucre. On investigue les causes déclarées de ces décès, telles que arrêt cardio-respiratoire, pancréatite, hémorragie cérébrale, infarctus et autres causes non identifiées. Des interviews ont été faites avec les familles (père, mère, épouse ou veuve, frère) pour connaître l’état de santé du travailleur avant de partir couper la canne à sucre. Les résultats obtenus grâce à cette méthodologie permettent de confirmer l’hypothèse de décès par épuisement dans les secteurs d’activités du sucre et de l’alcool.
  • REVISITING THE EFFECTS OF PLACE: segregation and access to labor market in
           a Brazilian metropolis

    • Abstract: Este artigo se propõe a discutir o denominado “efeito território”, compreendido como os benefícios ou prejuízos que afetam alguns grupos sociais em decorrência de sua localização no espaço urbano, analisando como o local de moradia interfere sobre o acesso e a incorporação ao mercado de trabalho, com base em uma pesquisa efetuada na terceira maior capital brasileira, a cidade de Salvador. Para tanto, ele começa se reportando à literatura existente sobre esse fenômeno e às discussões correntes sobre os impactos adversos da segregação. Apresenta, a seguir, as especificidades de Salvador do ponto de vista da ocupação e diferenciação do seu território e de suas condições ocupacionais. Por fim, com base em tabulações especiais da RAIS e do Censo de 2010, devidamente espacializadas, o texto evidencia como o “efeito território” opera de forma adversa à população que se concentra nas periferias pobres, mais distantes e menos equipadas, somando-se a outros fatores e contribuindo para a vulnerabilidade ocupacional de seus moradores e para a reprodução das desigualdades sociais.This article proposes to discuss the so-called “territory effect” comprehended as the benefits or losses that affect some social groups in consequence of its localization in the urban space. In order to do so, it is analyzed how the place of residence interferes with the access and the incorporation in the labor market based on a research made in the third largest Brazilian capital, the city of Salvador. Firstly, this article directs itself to the previous literature about this phenomenon and, then, to the current discussions about the adverse impacts of segregation. It is also presented the specificities of the city of Salvador from the point of view of the occupation and the differentiation of its territory and of its occupational conditions. Finally, based on RAIS and Censo 2010 special tabulations properly spatialized, this study emphasizes how the “territory effect” operates adversely to the population that is concentrated in the poor periphery, more distant and less occupied, in addition to other factors. This fact also contributes to the occupational vulnerability of their residents and to the reproduction of social inequalities.Cet article se propose de discuter le dénommé “effet territoire”entendu comme représentant les bénéfices ou les préjudices qui touchent quelques groupes sociaux à cause de leur localisation dans l’espace urbain. On y analyse comment le local de résidence influence l’accès et l’insertion dans le marché du travail à partir d’une recherche effectuée dans la ville de Salvador, troisième plus grande capitale brésilienne.Pour ce faire, on commence par ce qui a été écrit au sujet de ce phénomène et les discussions courantes sur les impacts nocifs de la ségrégation. Les spécificités de Salvador sont ensuite présentées du point de vue de l’occupation et de la différenciation de son territoire et de ses conditions d’occupation. Enfin, sur la base de croisements spécifiques de la RAIS et du recensement de 2010 dûment spécialisés, le texte montre combien “l’effet territoire” a des effets négatifs pour les populations qui se concentrent dans les banlieues pauvres, plus éloignées et moins équipées et s’ajoutent à d’autres facteurs pour contribuer à une vulnérabilité occupationnelle de ses habitants ainsi qu’à la reproduction d’inégalités sociales.

    • Abstract: Adotando como referência empírica o movimento de moradia do centro de São Paulo, o presente artigo tem como objetivo principal analisar o significado das ocupações de imóveis ociosos promovidas por atores desse movimento na área central da cidade. Demonstramos, com isso, o papel dos movimentos sociais como atores que se colocam na posição de desafiantes das ideias, dos discursos e valores hegemônicos na sociedade. Por meio da fala dos próprios ativistas engajados nessa mobilização, discute-se também como o direito de morar no centro tornou-se uma pauta política gradualmente construída pelos setores populares. A metodologia adotada, de caráter predominantemente qualitativo, consistiu em revisão teórica, coleta de dados em documentos e material jornalístico e entrevistas com militantes. Como conclusão, sugerimos que o principal significado das ocupações nas áreas centrais consiste no questionamento do modelo hegemônico de urbanização na sociedade brasileira, que, historicamente, afastou as camadas mais pobres em direção aos cinturões periféricos das cidades.Taking as an empirical reference the housing movement of the São Paulo downtown, the objective of this article is to analyze the meaning of occupations of unoccupied real estate promoted by actors of this movement in the central area of the city. We try to demonstrate that the role of the social movements as actors who place themselves in the position of challengers of ideas, discourses and hegemonic values in society. By the speech of the activists engaged in this mobilization, it is also discussed how the right of living in downtown became a political agenda gradually built by popular sectors. The method of the study is predominantly qualitative, as it consisted in theoretical review, data collection of documents, journalistic material, and interviews with activists. As a conclusion, we suggest that the main meaning of occupations in the central areas consist in the questioning of the hegemonic model of urbanization in Brazilian society, which historically moved the poorer strata toward the peripheries of the cities.En prenant comme référence empirique le mouvement pour le logement du centre de Sao Paulo, l’objectif principal de cet article est d’analyser la signification des occupations d’immeubles vides promus par les acteurs de ce mouvement dans le centre de la ville. Nous démontrons ainsi le rôle des mouvements sociaux comme acteurs qui assument une position de défi des idées, des discours et des valeurs hégémoniques dans la société. Par le biais des discours des activistes eux-mêmes engagés dans cette mobilisation, il y a lieu de savoir aussi comment le droit d’habiter au centre de la ville est devenu un sujet politique construit progressivement par les secteurs populaires. La méthodologie adoptée, essentiellement qualitative, a consisté en une révision de la théorie, une collecte de données issue de documents et de matériel journalistique ainsi que d’interviews avec des militants. Pour conclure, nous estimons que le sens principal de l’occupation des aires centrales consiste en une remise en question du modèle hégémonique de l’urbanisation dans la société brésilienne qui, tout au long de l’histoire a éloigné les couches plus pauvres vers les ceintures périphériques des villes.
           OF MARANHÃO

    • Abstract: Neste artigo são apresentadas duas formas de atuação de representantes de grandes corporações junto a comunidades do interior do estado do Maranhão, na região Nordeste do Brasil, com o objetivo de demonstrar, através do conceito de ritos empresariais, como eles são desenvolvidos de maneira estratégica pelas grandes empresas, na sua relação com comunidades rurais. A abordagem metodológica adotada é a qualitativa, com ênfase em análises descritivas e explicativas. Foram utilizadas entrevistas semiestruturadas com representantes tanto das comunidades quanto das empresas, além de análises de documentos oficiais disponíveis ao público e de documentos internos disponibilizados para esta pesquisa. Como principal contribuição, tem-se que as grandes empresas desenvolvem a capacidade de interferir diretamente na sua avaliação pelos comunitários, a partir do momento em que selecionam os representantes que tenham vivências relacionadas com causas defendidas por seus antagonistas, nesse caso, os movimentos sociais do meio rural; ou ainda quando conseguem transformar os investimentos financeiros em referenciais positivos de atuação nas comunidades.This article presents two forms of action taken by representatives of large corporations with communities in the interior of the Maranhão state, in the Northeastern region of Brazil. We seek to demonstrate, through the concept of business rites, how large companies, in their relationship with rural communities, strategically develop these rites. The methodological procedure adopted is qualitative focused on descriptive and explanatory analysis. Semi-structured interviews with representatives from the communities and the companies were performed, as well as the analysis of official documents of open access and internal documents, which were granted access for this research. As a main contribution, we hold that large companies develop the capacity to interfere directly in the evaluation made by the community. It starts from the moment the companies select the representatives, who have experiences related to causes sustained by their antagonists, in this case, the social movements in the rural area; or when they transform the financial investments into positive references for their action in the communities.Cet article présente deux manières d’agir des représentants des grandes corporations envers les communautés rurales de l’état du Maranhao dans la région nord-est du Brésil. L’objectif est de démontrer, par le biais du concept des rites des entreprises, comment ceux-ci sont implantés de manière stratégique par les grandes entreprises dans leur relation avec les communautés rurales. L’approche méthodologique adoptée est qualitative et met l’accent sur les analyses descriptives et explicatives. Nous avons appliqué des interviews semi-structurées auprès des représentants des communautés et des entreprises et nous avons aussi procédé à l’analyse des documents officiels mis à la dispositiondu public ainsi que de documents internes destinés à notre recherche. Comme contribution principale, nous pouvons affirmer que les entreprises développent une capacité d’interférer directement au niveau de l’évaluation faite par les membres des communautés à partir du moment où elles font la sélection des représentants dont le vécu est en lien avec les causes défendues par leurs antagonistes, dans le cas échéant les mouvements sociaux du monde rural ou encore lorsqu’elles arrivent à transformer les investissements financiers en références positives d’action dans les communautés.
  • USES OF A CITY OF LIBERTY: african students in the city of

    • Abstract: Este trabalho analisa a presença de estudantes estrangeiros na cidade de Redenção, Ceará, Brasil. Seu objetivo é compreender as ressignificações que guineenses produzem do espaço urbano. O estudo busca dialogar com as pesquisas sobre a atual diáspora africana no Brasil. Nesses estudos, sobressaem ênfases nas identidades nacionais recriadas por sujeitos deslocados. Observa-se, porém, uma subvalorização dos condicionantes espaciais ao se interpretar a localização desses sujeitos na “terra do outro”. Argumenta-se, neste artigo, que os usos estrangeiros ocorrem no momento em que Redenção presencia o florescimento de um imaginário de cidade da liberdade, por se tratar do primeiro núcleo urbano a libertar os escravizados em fins do século XIX. Após a instalação da Universidade da Integração Internacional da Lusofonia Afro-Brasileira em 2010, o novo marco espacial dessa topografia da liberdade, a cidade passou a se apropriar de símbolos que compõem um mosaico de temporalidades históricas contrastantes.This study analyzes the presence of foreigner students in the city of Redenção, state of Ceará, Brazil. The objective of this study is to understand the resignifications that Guineans produce of the urban space. This study aims to dialogue with researches made about the ongoing African diaspora in Brazil. In these studies, the emphasis in national identities recreated by dislocated individuals is highlighted. However, it is observed an under valorization of the spatial conditions when interpreting the location of these individuals in the “land of the other”. We argue that the foreign uses occur at a moment when Redenção experiments the growth of an imaginary of a city of liberty because it was the first urban nucleus to free slaves at the end of the nineteenth century. After the installation of the University for International Integration of the Afro-Brazilian Lusophony in 2010, the new spatial milestone of this topography of liberty, the city began to appropriate symbols that compound a mosaic of contrasting historical temporalities.Ce travail consiste en l’analyse de la présence d’étudiants étrangers dans la ville de Redenção située dans l’état du Ceara au Brésil. L’objectif de la recherche est de comprendre les resignifications de l’espace urbain produites par les Guinéens. Cette étude essaie d’établir un dialogue avec les recherches concernant l’actuelle diaspora africaine au Brésil dans lesquelles ressortent les identités nationales recrééespar des sujets déplacés. On observe cependant une sous-valorisation des éléments conditionnants spaciaux lorsqu’on interprète la localisation de ces sujets sur le “territoire de l’autre”.L’argumentation est que les usages étrangers se passent au moment où Redenção assiste à l’apparition d’un imaginaire de ville de la liberté étant donné qu’il s’agit du premier noyau urbain qui a libéré les esclaves à la fin du dix-neuvième siècle. Après l’installation de l’Université pour l’Intégration Internationale de la Lusophonie Afro-brésilienne en 2010, nouveau repère spatial de cette topographie de la liberté, la ville s’est appropriée de symboles qui composent une mosaïque de temporalités historiques et de contrastes.
