Aging in the city: memories of retired women from the countryside (Marechal CÃndido Rondon - PR)

By Gladis Hoerlle

Abstract

O presente trabalho investiga narrativas de memÃria de mulheres idosas, que quando jovens trabalharam na agricultura e, depois de aposentadas, foram morar no espaÃo urbano de Marechal CÃndido Rondon, Oeste do ParanÃ. A mecanizaÃÃo da agricultura, introduzida na dÃcada de 1970, e outras transformaÃÃes no processo de produÃÃo no campo desde entÃo, provocaram profundas mudanÃas nos modos de viver e trabalhar. Muitos dos colonos, ao adentrar a velhice e conquistar a aposentadoria, mudaram para o espaÃo urbano, deixando a propriedade ao cuidado dos filhos adultos ou, no caso dos proprietÃrios de Ãreas de terra menores, as venderam para grandes produtores, investindo noutro tipo de atividade, ou, vivendo de sua aposentadoria. Nesse sentido, atravÃs de entrevistas de histÃrias de vida, analisamos a experiÃncia da migraÃÃo e as relaÃÃes campo-cidade ainda existentes, os estranhamentos e a progressiva adaptaÃÃo à cidade, bem como a construÃÃo de novas relaÃÃes de pertencimento. AlÃm disso, procuramos perceber as mudanÃas nos papÃis sociais e nas sociabilidades destas mulheres, o empoderamento adquirido pela conquista da aposentadoria e significados que atribuem a este processoThis work researches elderly women memory narratives that when young worked in agriculture and after retirement went to live in urban areas of Marechal CÃndido Rondon, western ParanÃ. The mechanization of agriculture introduced in the 1970âs and other transformations in the production process in the field since then, led to deep changes in ways of living and working. Many of the settlers as aged and achieved the retirement, moved to urban areas, entrusting the property to the adult childrenâs care, or in the case of owners of smaller lands, sold them to large producers to invest in another type of activity or living on their retirement. In this sense, through interviews of life stories, we analyze the experience of migration and rural-urban relationships that still exist, the strangeness and progressive adaptation to the city as well as the building of new relationships of belonging. Furthermore, we understand the changes in social roles and the sociability of these women, the empowerment acquired by retirement achievement and meanings they attribute to this proces
