Implicaciones del espacio habitado en la experiencia de juventud

María Laura Serrano Santos


The social conditions that demarcate space determine, to a large extent, the social and urban experience of those who inhabit it. Inhabiting an urban enclave of poverty configures specific life experiences of youth, and unequal inclusion affects how they live in the city. This article, which derives from research conducted in a poor neighborhood in the city of Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas (Mexico), presents the implications of the conditions of precariousness and violence that demarcate an urban enclave of poverty by defining specific patterns of socialization that shape the urban and social experiences of the young people who live there.


Las condiciones sociales que demarcan el espacio moldean en gran medida la experiencia social y urbana de quienes lo habitan. Habitar un enclave urbano de pobreza configura experiencias específicas de vivir la juventud, así como maneras de inclusión desigual de vivir la ciudad. Este artículo, derivado de una investigación realizada en una colonia popular de la ciudad de Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas (México), presenta las implicaciones que tienen las condiciones de precariedad y violencia que demarcan un enclave urbano de pobreza al delimitar patrones específicos de socialización que configuran las experiencias urbanas y sociales de las y los jóvenes que lo habitan.
