GUEDES, André Dumans. Na estrada e na lama com Jorge, um brasileiro: trabalho e moradia nas fronteiras do desenvolvimento. Horiz. antropol. [online]. 2013, vol.19, n.39, pp.319-345. ISSN 0104-7183.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0104-71832013000100013.

Analyzing the novel Jorge, um brasileiro and considering the data produced in other researches, I consider here the relation between large development projects, labor and popular mobility. In the first place, I describe the activities of workers responsible for building roads; later I relate this topic to the issues of housing and of the relationship between workers and bosses. I argue that the experiences of these road building workers, conspicuously expressed through certain ideas related to the "road" and the "mud", offer a privileged perspective to think about some more general meanings related to labor among the popular classes considered in a broader sense. At the same time, these ideas articulate disparate themes and contexts, certain common meanings and practices relating labor, mobility, housing, person formation and conceptions about inequality.

Palavras-chave : development; housing; road building; work.
