LIVING SPACES AND SUBJECTIVITIES OF AGRICULTURAL DAY LABORERS: MORAL REGULATIONS IN CONTEMPORARY AGRIBUSINESS SOCIETIES

Abstrac


In this study, we explore the establishment of precarious living spaces, as well as the social representations and subjectivities of the day laborer population in México, through the study of six neighborhoods and diverse public spaces in Yurécuaro, Michoacán, between September 2007 and March 2010. In particular, information was obtained about the material conditions and the daily life in housing and public spaces; about the assimilation processes of physical and emotional suffering, and about the dramatic restrictions of day laborers’ life projects. The research shows how the capitalist market contributes to create subjectivities for which the collective alternatives that have arisen in face of the civilizing and development projects turn out to be less significant, in spite of their communitarian cultural origin, and of occupying the least favorable place in the labor market.

Palabras clave: human rights, marginalization, civilizing project, rural worker, housing.
