Abstract

LETELIER COSMELLI, Javiera  and  CASTRO ROJAS, Victoria. IMAGINARIES OF PORT OF LAMAR FROM 1825 TO 1877. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2019, vol.51, n.1, pp.155-166. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562018005002201.

This paper presents an analysis of the construction of imaginaries of Port of Lamar in Cobija, currently located in the Atacama region, from its creation in 1825 until the years before the War of the Pacific. The Port of Lamar was a political project of the recently created Republic of Bolivia at the beginning of the XIX century. It aimed at promoting the development of capitalism through the overseas connection of Bolivia with the rest of the world. In this context, a new local reality was created in Cobija, in which it is possible to identify an increase in population, the transformation of landscape, and, consequently, a configuration of diverse imaginaries within this enclave in the Atacama Desert.

Keywords : Imaginaries; landscape; Atacama Desert; Port of Lamar; Cobija.
