The Red de Investigación sobre Trabajo del Hogar en América Latina invites researchers, undergraduate and postgraduate students, activists, unionist to participate in the first conference of RITHAL, scheduled to take place virtually from March 26-28, 2022.
RITHAL was founded in 2017 to create spaces for dialogue and exchange between those who study domestic work in different countries of Latin America. The Network includes 125 members. The conference will be a great opportunity to strengthen ties between the network and add more researchers to study on the subject related to domestic work.
On the first event, our objective is to reflect on the analytical paths of the field since the publication of "Muchachas No More: household workers in Latin America and the Caribbean", in 1986 - work organized by Elsa Chaney and Mary Garcia Castro - which was constituted, since then, as a framework for your field studies. In 1996 a collection was published in Spanish "Muchacha, cachifa, criada, empleada, empregadinha, sirvienta… y nada más: trabajadoras del hogar en América Latina y el Caribe".
