Durin my undergraduate studies in Social Sciences (baccalaureate) at the Federal University of Goiás (UFG), I became involved with activist groups in the area of ​​free software and computing, especially those aimed at women. During this period, I also worked as a programmer and as an administrator of Linux systems. Upon graduation, I started a master's program in Sociology at the same university, with a research focused on cyborg contingencies and body technologies, paying particular attention to Donna Haraway's Cyborg Manifesto. Upon completion of my master's degree, I embarked on a research proposal that focused on my desire to work with women in computing, activists, and free software. In this sense, my proposal for the doctoral studies, in the Program of Histories of Sciences and Techniques and Epistemology (HCTE) at UFRJ, addresses the possible "computações" inside and outside universities, in Brazil, their methods and their constructions, inside, outside or in the border institutional scientific knowledge.
