The Skin as a Space of Memory Inscription: Reflections on Skin Tags and their Role as Elements of Signification in the Constitution of the Subject

Maria Esther Prates, Edvania Gomes da Silva

Abstract: The aim of this paper is to discuss the contribution and role that skin tags play as elements of signification (objects?) for the constitution of the subject. For this purpose, we make use of the ideas of Foucault, Fonseca-Silva, and Sant'Anna, in order to analyze the participation of skin tags (scars and dermatoses of chronic and long-term course, congenital diseases) in the constitution of the subject.
