From Servants to Workers: A Social History of Domestic Service in Twentieth-Century Chile

During the grant period, I will complete my book manuscript, the bulk of which I am drafting during my 2012-2013 sabbatical. In "From Servants to Workers: A Social History of Domestic Service in Twentieth-Century Chile," I show how household workers in Chile have addressed their social and economic exploitation by demanding – and over time increasingly securing – rights enjoyed by other workers. My study also advances current scholarship by placing household workers at the center of Chilean labor history, employing that occupation as a lens for understanding how forms of inequality (ethnic, gender, and economic) have been both perpetuated and transformed through domestic service relations. Through this book and articles already published, I examine how and why domestic service has remained one of the key “underdeveloped” sectors in Chile’s twentieth-century economy.
