The field of gender and sexuality studies articulated with education has been constituted and, today, it is already consolidated as a field of knowledge. This means that this field has mobilized groups of studies and research linked to CNPq with a focus on these interests, lines of research in Postgraduate programs, National Associations centered on the discussions of Gender and Sexuality, Working Groups in the main academic associations, Seminars National and International, in short, a set of actions that allow us to affirm the studies of Gender, Sexuality and Education as a field that produces and disseminates knowledge. This field has a strong influence from the post-structuralist perspective, which invests in problematizing important and central issues for society, such as, for example, the production of gender and sexual differences and inequalities in their crossings with race / ethnicity, generation and class. Bringing to Education, this focus focuses on the school space and in a sense of education beyond schools as contexts in which gender and sexuality relations produce subjects as effects of discursive practices, knowledge, power relations and actions between subjects. In this sense, the proposal for a dossier like this is so that we can welcome, know and disseminate research that has taken the post-structuralist perspective in dialogue with other studies, such as Gay and Lesbian Studies, Foucaultian Studies, Cultural Studies, Feminist Studies , Queer studies as provocations to think about the constitution of the subjects and their belongings in their intersectionality of gender, sexuality, race / ethnicity, generation, religion, class, among others. Research that works with this sense of constitution of the subjects as educational processes that involve not only schools, but also other educational spaces, in which relationships are marked by discourses, practices, knowledge that produce identities and belongings, as well as allowing us to place under suspicion our ways of thinking, acting, being and being in the world. Our proposal is also to problematize how these studies based on the post-structuralist perspective, in dialogue with other studies, have mobilized our ways of looking and understanding the field of gender, sexuality and education studies.
