This dissertation proposes to recover the historical possibilities forged by white middle types in post-abolition to accommodate their lives in a hybrid society conformed to slavery in mercantil capitalism, wage labor as the basis of industrial capitalism and domestic labor as the estructure of patriarchy. That is, to resume the ways in which they incorporated themselves into a hybrid nation inheriting from patriarchal slave relations occupying materially unstable and socially inaccurate social positions. For the accomplishment of this sociological exercise, one turns to the recreational societies of these subjects between the years 1879-1940 Rio Claro-SP. They are: Sociedade Philarmônica Rio Clarense, Grêmio Recreativo dos Empregados da Companhia Paulista de Estradas de Ferro e Grupo Gymnástico Rio Clarense. By consulting the minutes of the board meeting, the photo book of the clubs, periodicals of the period and conducting interviews with members, these people and and the ways they made their entrance into the republican life from the associative microcosm will be characterized. The argument of this paper is that the meanings of transformation for these agents, forged in the urbanization processes and the intermediate social strata, were very loose and diverse. However, the elaboration of the social change process fundamentally involved the violent negotiation of differences around gender, race and class, giving the social basis for the formation of fragile whiteness (AU)
