Abstract

The research project, entered in the tables of French Discourse Analysis, establishes itself in a reflection of how historically built up in the legal system and in advertisements over Brazil, the image of Brazilian women in her relationship with prostitution. We observe how this construct undergoes re-meanings, nowadays, while it carries effects of memories of earlier periods: the enunciation enter into a scheme of formation and transformation, memory and appropriation of discursive mutations. Thus, the research problem is how the knowledge-power of law, in its dynamism with other domains, constructs the concept of "whore" in a medium term: 1930 to 2013 in Brazil. The our research hypothesis is that the body, printed in History (COURTINE, 2011), is in the order of discourse (Foucault, 2011a) and is constituted as a beacon for the construction of subjectivities of prostitutes. In this Project, our objective is, to understand what the scheme of enunciation is possible in each historical temporality on the harlot and her body in engendering the legal knowledge with other discourses that define and build. The our methodology is archaeological and follows the concept of file (Foucault, 1986) which will consist of legislative statements, as well as those statements that form an "associated domain": the materiality of tourist publicity concerning the "invention" of Brazil to look abroad (Davallon, 2010). We want to contribute to the reflection of language, whose illusory transparency is implicated in a historical network and interdiscursive.
