GANTER SOLIS, Rodrigo; CARRASCO SAN MARTIN, Daniela  e  PINTO VALENZUELA, Pablo. Youth bodygraphies and generations in contexts of uncertainty: subjectivation, divergence and happiness industry in contemporary Chile. Ultima décad. [online]. 2018, vol.26, n.49, pp.59-100. ISSN 0718-2236.

The article is part of the result discussion work in the context of a Fondecyt initiative on corporal practices and narratives in Chilean urban young individuals carried out between 2015 and 2017. The objective of the text is to analyze the main meanings, habits and care that youths develop towards their corporal experience and personal image, by means of identifying imaginaries, processes of subjectivation and social agents feeding, regulating and tensing these dynamics, in a social scenario of strong uncertainty and social discomfort particularly visible in younger generations. A biographical method was used, including 40 life stories of young individuals from diverse social contexts, socioeconomic strata, interests and lifestyles in the cities of Concepcion and Santiago. The work proposes a typology of corporal experiences, and a bodygraphy synthesizing the corporal-related visions expressed within each typology, allowing the observation of some tensions and alternatives in diverse generations and young worlds.

Palavras-chave : youths; uncertainty; body experience; personal care industry- generational subjectivation.
