A Tentative Model of Workshop-based Production
Analysis of the field material when put together with more theoretical discussions led to certain generalisations as to (i) the origins and conditions of industrial growth; (ii) the dynamics and mode of appropriation specific to capitalised workshop production; and (iii) the implications of gendered production. These constituted a framework through which I might abstract from the immediate specificity of Santiago and of western-central region of Mexico. I wish to present these generalisations as a preliminary model which, although derived primarily from a single field enquiry, is capable of being explored further, tested and refined in the light of evidence about ‘informalisation’, capitalised workshops and gendered production coming from other localities.
