Abstract

The main objective of the present dissertation is to perceive how palestinian women- immigrants and the first generation of descents born in Brazil – construct their identities in Brasilia. In order to do that, the analysis of memories was the privileged instrument to comprehend these structuring elements in their identitarian constructions. In a lot of ways, we perceive that the conflict between Israel and Palestine as well as the prescriptions and proscriptions of gender are the main aspects, even though they are not the only ones, to conform a self-identification as "palestine", "refugee", "arab" or even "brazilian" among those women. It is important to underline that the elements actioned and reinforced by the Palestine women are not due to constitutive aspects of an "arab culture". On the contrary, these constructions are built during the processes of confrontations between specific alterities, which awake to different representations.

Key words: Memory; Identity; Palestinian Women.
