A collection of data cards (dossiers) issued as criminological studies related to psychology belonging to official institutions (jails, asylums) emerge during periods of politically changing backgrounds (such as the alternance between restricted or normal democratic periods) in Argentina. Once gathered, these documents can be classified into different groups crossing 2 different criteria: sort of institution and group of application (children, adults). Discursive analysis will be applied on these two secuential series of documents, in order to compare its inner structure and purposes,with different manners of conceiving psychological subject and the ways psychology has been considered in different political contexts.
