Landscapes of bodies docilitados.

Abstract in spanish

This ethnography is part of a broader research work that was conducted in Yurécuaro, located in northwestern, Michoacán México and is focused on some basic body positions of migrant agricultural workers during their performance in the rural precarious work and some spaces of their live. The photo exhibition, as part of the development of qualitative methodology, shows the main situations and conditions to which the body is subjected routinely and how, thanks to them, workers must assume forms that emphasize the precarious state and cause deterioration of their bodies. All variants of accommodation are reporting accurate ways to interpret everyday life where the most vulnerable population of the country settles and circulates, those whom with their corporeal atrophy enable agribusiness to progress in Yurécuaro.
