MAGARINOS DE MORENTIN, Juan. Knowledge production at the university of the street (A research project). Cuad. Fac. Humanid. Cienc. Soc., Univ. Nac. Jujuy [online]. 2010, n.39, pp. 19-31. ISSN 1668-8104.
In this paper I will pose the university of the street question as the object of knowledge of a research work into the field of the social sciences. Its development and proper achievement require to applying a semiotic methodology. The study of this phenomenon and the explanation of its pedagogical efficacy need analytical and critical operations to be derived from the possible development of a specific indexical semiotics, just as it can be taken (avoiding to be cloistered in a dogmatic derivation) from Ch. S. Peirce´s proposal concerning the indexical sign´s treatment (Ch. S. Peirce, 1913/1965, paragraph 2.283 and following). The aim of this research will be to collect the pertaining information, which will consist mainly of: (Nota 1) the descriptive enunciation of a set of experience generating behaviors; (Nota 2) the generalized enunciation of acquired experiential knowledge. This will permit the identification, out of the formal and informal pedagogical processes, of the effective existence of concrete learning situations that have fundamental importance in the achievement of the goals concerning social improvement and even survival.
