Sugar Boom in Argentina: A Social and Economic History, 1876-1916

A National Endowment for the Humanities Faculty Research Award would support the completion of my book manuscript on the sugar boom in Argentina between 1876 and 1916. I use quantitative and qualitative sources to provide a comprehensive analysis of the changes experienced by Tucumán, Argentina’s main sugar producer, as a result of sugar expansion. My study reveals that the rise of the sugar industry was of great consequence for Tucumán, and its history has implications for the entire country. My study clearly shows that the history of Argentina is unintelligible without reference to regions and provinces beyond Buenos Aires.
