SIDY, Bettina. Politics and dirt. Governmental conceptions and practices regarding the cleanliness and the salubrity in the colonial Buenos Aires: (1740-1776). Mem. am. [online]. 2011, n.19-2, pp. 197-217. ISSN 1851-3751.

This paper analyzes the measures civil servants tried to implement in the city of Buenos Aires during 1740-1776 in order to improve the urban cleanliness. The subject will be approached taking into account the ideological and scientific positions that shaped the orders issued, and also the different devices implemented to enforce them. By studying these topics, we will be able to rethink the different representations an ideal city should reach in the eighteenth century. Additionally, the measures taken could be placed in a larger scenario of political interests to observe their impact in daily life.

Palavras-chave : Colonial Buenos Aires; Urban cleanliness; Government.
