Abstract

This dissertation in anthropology examines practices and discourses associated to the house (post) rural from case studies in Ourem (central Portugal) and Champigny-sur-Marne (France). The research around building trajectories and uses in dwellings in Portuguese villages in the past century shows housing types that refer to three periods coincide with different socio-economic panoramas: The “house of rural workers” (1900 – 1960), associated with agriculture; “House of emigrant” (1970 – 2015), related to the emigration and the profound changes in the fields; and the “house emblematized” (1990 – 2015), related to the reification of tradition. The analysis extends to homes of Portuguese residents in the suburbs of Paris in the last fifty years and does reflect significant changes in the relations of individuals with the fields, making them closer to urban realities. Comparative readings around formal and functional trends in domestic architecture, in expressions of transnationalism, genealogy representations, gender and reification of tradition associated with the construction and use of the house (post-) rural allow think of it in conjunction with other social practices and capture (dis) continuities and reconfigurations in the manifestations of social groups united by own universes of the house, fields and emigration.
