Power, resistance and intersectionality: the discursive disputes regarding identity in the Brazilian TV show «Sex and Black Women»

The object of this article is the controversial Brazilian television series: «Sexo e as Negas» (Sex and black women). We consider that the media does not have an essential function previously determined, on the contrary, it is an institution crossed by the interactive social process. Television products reflect and act on social controversies. Thus, our objective is to analyze how the discursive disputes involving race and gender identities appear in the series. Our hypothesis is that the program appropriates discursive lines of force about race and gender present in Brazilian society. The intersectional perspective helps to perceive the normative lines that operate this device.
