RETAMOZO, Martín  and  MORRIS, Belén. Latin American configurationism as a research program in the work of Enrique de la Garza. Cinta moebio [online]. 2022, n.74, pp.95-108. ISSN 0717-554X.

Latin American configurationism is the proposal developed in the late work of Mexican sociologist Enrique de la Garza Toledo. This article proposes a genealogical and archaeological approach to this perspective in three convergent fields. First, as a social theory that proposes the category of subjectivity as a mediation between structure and action. Secondly, as a constructivist epistemology with methodological implications for social research. And finally, as a school in the field of the sociology of work that has resulted in the new Latin American labour studies. The article also proposes moments of tension and lines of prospective based on the theoretical, epistemological and methodological development and the empirical studies promoted by De la Garza.

Keywords : configurationism; Latin American epistemology; subjectivity; Enrique de la Garza.
