Entre el territorio de proximidad y la movilidad cotidiana : los anclajes y el territorio de proximidad como soporte y recurso para las prácticas de movilidad de los habitantes de la ciudad de Santiago de Chile

Abstract : Contrary to the assumptions/ postulates of a generalized mobility of society and the weakening of the territorial dimension, this research demonstrates the importance of the proximity of the territory - home and neighborhood - as a support place, a very suitable and strategic place to deal with the tensions modern life brings. Indeed, individuals seek for a balance that takes the form of an oscillation between nomadism and anchorage, which proves that mobility rather than opposing, articulates with the anchorage in the proximity.Gathering information from the Geography and Ethnography, research was carried out in three neighborhoods of the city of Santiago de Chile (different neighborhoods in terms of location and socioeconomic composition), the investigation consisted on observations and repeated and prolonged visits to the places mentioned and the execution of 51 in-depth conversations with its inhabitants. It is suggested that they seek a sociospacial insertion marked by proximity as a way to cope with an increasing demand for mobility, showing how the house and the neighborhood becomes a substantial anchor point of lifestyles.This research argues that is the anchorage in the territory of proximity that makes it possible to explore the city at various scales. Going away, traveling, moving long distances does not necessarily imply a rupture with the place of origin, with family, with the everyday environment, however, is the support in the proximity which allows many daily mobility practices to be made. Three archetypes of proximity and support were identified in this research: the locals, the metropolitans and the retracted, showing that the role of neighborhood scale exists as an oscillation between rootedness and mobility, between rejection and confinement.
