Pedro V. Castro Martínez, Trinidad Escoriza-Mateu

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


We emphasize the economic importance of the activities of "care and attention" for the production and maintenance of social life. From a Feminist and Materialist perspective this activities are work, and part of the social production: this is Subjects Maintenance Production. This Subjects Maintenance Production, considered work, shall acquire the real dimension in which both, subjects and objects, are committed for reproduction of social life. We also emphasize the lack of universalization and naturalization of such collective activities, just as exclusively female task since the origins of humanity. Finally, also we will expose some lines in research about Production of Subjects and his Maintenance in Andean Aliterate Societies
