ETHNOGRAPHY OF AN URBAN POOR AND WORKING CLASS NEIGHBORHOOD WITH MIGRATION TO THE NORTH

Abstrac


In this document, I approach international migration and the ethnography of an urban space. Based on the relationships observed in an urban poor and working class neighborhood, we notice social processes that its inhabitants have undergone, different social profiles that make up and have defined its heterogeneity; it is possible to observe the economic and financial dynamism present, as well as the transformations that are happening in the location’s structures; the differences in migrations to the USA and the social processes that they have brought with them; and the problems that persist, but also the recreation of common imaginaries that identify and collectivize the inhabitants.

Palabras clave: Urban ethnography, social spaces, urban households, domestic and international migrations, gender and generational relations.
