Abstract

The research presented intendeds to investigate the experience of bondspeople brought to the city of Campinas - a plantation center in the "historical West" of São Paulo - through the internal trade in slaves that grew rapidly after the end of the traffic in Africans (1850) and reached its height in the 1870s. My story finishes in 1888, the year of abolition.. I focus my research on various aspects of slave experience - family relationships (especially marriage and baptism), labor relations, the distribution of specialized occupations, the incidence of flight and possibilities of manumissions - always contrasting the experiences of the descendants of the Africans "founders" of the slave quarters in the first half of the century, with the new "outsiders" post-1850. To this end, , I construct "micro-histories" - of a small numbers of properties (three, ranging from old to "newly established"), using the method of nominative record-linkage to follow people over time and beteween different documentary series (AU)
