(Re)Production at Home: Reconceptualizing Home and Family

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article concerns homes and families that are organized around home-based production, referring to the cases of Guadalajara and Zapotlanejo in Mexico. It addresses a reconceptualization of home and family as units of production and reproduction. Both the exploitative and the liberating aspects of home-based work are discussed, particularly those for married women who are tied to their homes because of child-rearing responsibilities and who make up the bulk of home-based workers. The division of labor within a family involved in a home-based production, the gender division of home-based work, and the spatial typology of physical modifications to the home are major themes of the article.
