Abstract

BASCOPE JULIO, JOAQUÍN. PASSENGERS OF LANDOWNER'S POWER: THE SOCIEDAD EXPLOTADORA DE TIERRA DEL FUEGO AND ESTANCIAS BIOPOLITICS (1890-1920). Magallania [online]. 2008, vol.36, n.2, pp.19-44. ISSN 0718-2244.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22442008000200002.

In the early 20th century the Patagonian sheep-farming business becomes an enormous empire following the British forms of production. The eradication not only of national sovereignties or other sheep-farmers challenged it, but of any living form obstructing goods, animáis and men fluxes under his control, was the biopolitic desert necessary to landowner power. These hegemonic condition, with the post-industrial estancia as reference, allowed, however, different ways of "crossing the desert", subversive modes of being a passenger in it, that have partially interrupted the sheep-farmer's machine performance.

Keywords : Estancia's history; biopolitics; nomadic workers.
