RUBILAR LUENGO, Mauricio. PRESS AND NATIONAL IMAGINARY: THE SOCIAL MISSION OF REGIONAL SUBALTERN ACTORS DURING THE WAR OF THE PACIFIC. Diálogo Andino [online]. 2015, n.48, pp.41-53. ISSN 0719-2681. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-26812015000300005.
The glance around the war of the Pacific (1879-1883) has been enriched in recentyears with new themes, actors, issues, approaches and sources of the hand of the cultural and social history. In this way have been extending the conception of the war, the variety of its actors and the timeframe of analysis, contributing to the understanding of the phenomenon of the historical construction of national identities in a war situation. This article seeks to contribute to the strengthening of this approach by analyzing the speech that made the Catholic press in the province of Concepción (Chile) to Catholic women and the popular sectors through the characterization of the actions of citizen mobilization involving the regional subaltern sectors during the years of the war of the Pacific. We will try to establish the construction of an imaginary social with national projection through a political discourse and doctrinaire of the regional press which sought to guide and influence the behavior and patriotic commitment of certain sectors of Chilean society. Finally, it will seek to characterize the actions of resistance of the subaltern sectors against the hegemonic discourse.
