PERRET, Myriam Fernanda. Women and work in qom basketry from Fortín Lavalle-Chaco-Argentina. Folia [online]. 2018, n.32, pp.57-76. ISSN 0325-8238.

In this article we will analyze the work done by qom artisans from Fortín Lavalle, province of Chaco, Argentina. We focus on the dimensions of body and time put into play during the manufacture of handicrafts, which are mainly used for mercantile exchange. Regarding the body dimension, the performative capacity of work becomes clearer in certain moments of the woman’s life cycle, so that when weaving the body is woven in terms of movements (skills as a weaver), values ​​(for example, “being a worker”) and look (attention to the work of others). With respect to time, understanding it in its rootedness in life, different elements give shape to working time by creating and bringing together moments that land in the way the object produced finally assumes. These elements have different degrees of participation and move around the following issues: form, technique, design, quality, size, other activities developed at home and muscle fatigue. For this research we use, fundamentally participant observation, ethnographic interview and official documents. Fieldwork goes from September 2012 to November 2016

Palabras clave : Work; Women; Chaco; Qom.
