This work shows an in progress research project that pretends to identify how the discursive field about the new civil laws in Argentina is configured in order to clarify, how these current discourses situate us in the problem of biopolitics.
From this perspective, the work on juridical discourse allows us to focus the changes that the argentine society has experienced in recent years in terms of social and family ties. These changes, we believe, come, on one side, citizen ownership of human rights in a broad, progressive and not restrictive. And on the other, at the legislative level, the recognition of citizens demands and claims which were incorporated with force of law in the juridical red as the Equal Marriage Law, the Death with Dignity Law, the Gender Identity Law and the Medically Assisted Reproduction Law.
So, the theory of social discourse, the critical discourse analysis and Foucault conceptions of biopolitics, are our tools for study and research.
At the same time, we have used psychoanalytic theory to think about and clarify some questions that have been open about these laws.
From this perspective, this time, we want to raise some initial reflections on Gender Identity Law and the Death with Dignity Act. To do this, we put the question in a minimum referential framework which allows us to arrive at some initial thoughts on the subject.
