Families, Class, and the State in Chile, 1800-1930

The NEH grant will permit the completion of my book, THE CHILDREN OF FATE: FAMILIES, CLASS, & THE STATE IN CHILE, 1800-1930. In this case study of 19th-century Chile, I show how domestic practices are linked in integral ways to class hierarchy and state formation. I do so through an analytic focus on a group largely absent from Latin American historiography: children. With funding from NEH, I will conduct new research in the Chilean archives in order to deepen some of my arguments; write up this new research; and develop some of the comparative and theoretical implications of my findings. My monograph will be published by Duke University Press, where I have a contract contingent upon completion of the aforementioned research and revisions.
