Regiões esquecidas da história: um estudo sobre a organização da mão-de -obra em fazendas do Oeste paulista no período de transição

    (UNESP, Araraquara)


This paper discusses the forms of labour organisation during the transition from slavery to free labour in two coffee plantations located in Araraquara and Sao Carlos, in the west of Sao Paulo. Primary sources including diaries and account books reveal a particular combination of labour arrangements agreed between coffee planters and workers, which included slaves, freedmen and native Brazilians, at a time when patterns of labour relations in other regions were changing to incorporate immigrant labour based on sharecropping, locacao de servicos and colonato.
