The Children of Fate: Families, Class, and State in Chile, 1800-1930

The NEH Summer Stipend will permit me to significantly advance work on manuscript, THE CHILDREN OF FATE: FAMILIES, CLASS, AND THE STATE IN CHILE, 1800-1930. In this case study of nineteenth-century Chile, I show how domestic practices in general and child-rearing patterns in particular are linked in integral ways to social hierarchy and state formation. With the NEH, I will conduct new research in the Chilean archives on particular aspects of the project in order to deepen some of my arguments. At that point, I will be ready to work on final revisions of the manuscript. My monograph will be published by Duke University Press, where I have a contract contingent upon completion of the aforementioned research.
