BERGOT, Solène. Childhood and Material Culture: The Case of the Elite in Santiago, Chile in the Transition from the 19th to the 20th Century. Secuencia [online]. 2018, n.spe, pp.153-176. ISSN 2395-8464.

This article seeks to explore the material culture of Santiago’s elite in the transition from the 19th to the 20th century, in order to understand how the sphere of the imaginary concerning childhood is linked to its more tangible projection, positing that the material environment of children explains the construction of the concept of childhood and the shaping of the practices associated with it. In this respect, the theories related to the education of children, as well as the practices associated with this upbringing, shaped a physical environment not only specific to this sector of the population, but also in evolution insofar as raising children acquired a new importance and the literature on it developed, with scientific undertones, including hygienic precepts.

Palavras-chave : Chile; childhood; material culture; hygienism; social control.
