Revista Latinoamericana de Trabajo y Trabajadores: REVLATT Revista Latinoamericana de Trabajo y Trabajadores: REVLATT

3rd issue (Nov. 2021-April 2022)

An initiative of the "Red Latinoamericana de Trabajo y Trabajadores" (REDLATT), the "Revista Latinoamericana de Trabajo y Trabajadores" is a journal devoted to the history of labor. It aims to bring together research with diverse views and perspectives about and from Latin America. Among the phenomena covered in the journal are a variety of socio-economic systems, the diverse non-evolutionary continuum of coactive labor and labor regimes, and labor precariousness as a phenomenon with a long history.

Among the articles of the third issue are an analysis of the labor and family conditions experienced by some children of African origin in Spanish America, namely the work and suicide of Diego, an enslaved child from the city of Santiago de Guatemala in the second half of the 17th century.

Other articles focus on the contradiction between the existence of the contract of workers' engagement as an instrument of coercion and the liberal idea of the contract as a free agreement in the 19th and 20th century, or the changes and continuities of the 19th century republican guild system inherited from colonial times.
