GIORDANO, Verónica. Allegation in Favour of a Comparative Historical Sociology of Latin America. Trab. soc. [online]. 2011, n.17, pp.41-48. ISSN 1514-6871.

This article offers a debate on the possibilities of a comparative historical sociology of Latin America as a form of "disciplinary hybridization". The concept of hybridization is taken from the book by Mattei Dogan and Robert Pahre, Creative marginality, which offers a very interesting tool for the historical interpretation of the process of institutionalization of the Social Sciences. This is the starting point to discuss the possibilities of a comparative historical sociology of Latin America, its scope in terms of innovation of the sciences and their practices. Moreover, this article offers the application of this view to a concrete empirical reality: the evolution of the civil rights that regulate the juridical equality between men and women, particularly, the law of "full capacity" for women in the Southern Cone countries during the second part of the XX century. It is an example from which the application, possibilities and scope of the given view can be fully observed.

Keywords : Historical Sociology; Interdisciplinary; Latin America.
