For a Proper Home
summary
Murphy examines the dramatic forms of social mobilization, state-directed repression, mass development projects, and socioeconomic exclusion that have marked struggles over low-income urban housing in Santiago, Chile, during the past half-century. Analyzing processes of reform, socialist revolution, and neoliberal reaction, Murphy sheds light on the changes between these political projects while also uncovering the persistence of the connection between homeownership and understandings of proper behavior, status, and governance. This link has been at the root of an urban politics that has shaped the social and physical landscapes of Santiago. In revealing the role that an urban politics of propriety has played in this transformation, the manuscript demonstrates that there has been an unsettled overlap between elements of state formation, citizenship rights, forms of discipline, urban spatial development, and home life during the Cold War and the transition to neoliberalism in Chile.
