MARTINEZ, Raúl Alejandro  and  PEINADO, Elva del Valle. The uses of sex in school or how the school field is a space where the patriarchal habitus deepens. Cuad. Fac. Humanid. Cienc. Soc., Univ. Nac. Jujuy [online]. 2010, n.38, pp.127-143. ISSN 1668-8104.

The aim of the article is to analyze the relationships between teachers and students and between students, from the grounds influence of that the habitus of origin have in the links that are established on campus. Those relationships that occur within the classroom space and social space of the school often come into conflict because they are guided by habitus originated to act in social fields different from thase of the school, creating practices that can produce resistance or reproduce the characteristics of school culture and social culture making the school a field of tension. This practice does not stop being violent and allows the reproduction of patriarchal masculinity within the institution and allows the formation of a subjectivity that produces a "macho" agent and some esthetic that simultaneously result in certain ethical behavior of youth. The results are part of an investigation carried. The area where the field work is conducted is a high the school in San Pedro de Jujuy. The methodology used is the ethnography that allowed generation a different kind of data. Here we have the data of the spontaneus encounters maintened with the informants during the 1st semester.

Keywords : Habitus; High the school; Youth; Masculinity.
