Project Details


The purpose of the project is to analyze the forms of exploitation of peasant work in Catalan rural society from the 14th/15th centuries to the present.

Starting from the results of a previous project founded by CICYT, this research is intended to achieve a more precise definition of the pattern of income of noble families and to examine the impact upon the peasants of seigneurial duties as well as the burden of sharecropping and farming contracts or emphytheusis arrangements. For the latest period, the agrarian workers' earnings and living standards will be analyzed, as well as the reasons that may have induced landowne
