SOCIAL CONSTRUCTION OF PEASANT IDENTITY IN TWO LOCALITIES OF THE MUNICIPALITY OF TLAXCO, TLAXCALA, MÉXICO

Abstrac


Approaching the identity of peasants from their own perspective requires the recognition of subjects as analytical entities, so that identity can be identified from their narrations or discourses. The purpose of this study was to determine how peasants of the following localities “Unión Ejidal Tierra y Libertad” and “San José Atotonilco”, in the municipality of Tlaxco, Tlaxcala, socially construct their identity. To this end, interviews were carried out about the life histories of peasants from each place. These interviews show how it is that people describe themselves from their own discourses. The analysis was based on two axes or identity features: peasant family and agricultural activity as a profession. The family is important since it is the first social group where the individual interacts after being born, establishing the bases for his/her socialization. The activity carried out in the field is considered a profession, by providing sustenance for the peasant and his family; since the peasant is a professional, this shows how it is that he conceives himself.

Palabras clave: discourse, narrative, perception, socialization, daily life.
