Abstract

One of the most important political tasks of critical studies about organizations is to explore the processes of resistance organizing. However, this challenge is difficult due to the narrow notion of organization prevalent in the field of organizational studies. In this sense, the political discourse theory (PDT) has emerged as an alternative to understand the processes of resistance experienced by counter-hegemonic organizations, bringing to light alternative practices of organizing. The objective of this work is, within PDT´s framework, to analyze organizational practices developed by the Circuit Beyond the Standard Boundaries (Circuito Fora do Eixo) for the articulation of different initiatives in support of common goals. The case study undertaken shows that categories provided by PDT as articulation and logic of equivalence present important elements for the analysis and understanding of the resistance organizing processes.
