»In this study, work which I called the “kidnapping granted” in Paraíba, among the 80 and 90 decades of XIX Century and in the year of 1910. The research pointed to a tangled discursive giving visibility to the loving practice and relations of power, present in the practices of “kidnapping granted.”
We understand, even if partially, the daily lives of those involved cited for criminal proceedings by kidnappings as well as the networks of relationships between men and women. Thus, we see through all the way that preceded the abductions, as these couples met, which tactics were used and the tricks used to convince each other. Analyzing the abduction as a place of tension that transcend the mere fact of resistance to a patriarchal order, but that also establishes an alternative to the loving practices. And yet, the occupied by women, who showed themselves, throughout the search, not just as victims or seduced but also as subjects of their actions and desires. Therefore, the kidnapping granted in the whole web of relationships that are built around them, and the appropriations which have been made by individuals along the path of kidnappings were a central issue in this study.
The historic culture, engendered by the criminal proceedings, the novels about the theme of kidnapping written by memorialists and newpapers of that time, with its articles about the same subject, which allowed to problematize the relationship of power and the strategies of normalization of loving relations and the format of a specific type of marriage with their respective roles: those of ideal husbands and wives. But, the kidnappings also allowed in reaching the “undiscipline” and the tactics prepared by concerned to escape from constraints of the order, pointing to “the ways of doing”. The work is still tied to the line search in Regional History, which allowed ourselves to point to the most punctual problematics, allowing further analysis of the daily, without, therefore isolate the theme of the nationwide study.« (Source: Thesis)
