GANTER SOLIS, RODRIGO  and  ZARZURI CORTES, RAÚL. Rhapsody of a Social Outbreak: narrative snippets and generational expressions of 18-W in present-day Chile. Universum [online]. 2020, vol.35, n.1, pp.74-103. ISSN 0718-2376.

This article is part of the theoretical reflection supported by the evidence accumulated by more than 20 years of experience and research in the field of Youth Studies in recent Chile. The basic objective of the article is to present the preliminary work of contextualization of the 18-O social outbreak, the bibliographic discussion and the provisional working hypotheses, putting into perspective what happened in the framework of the so-called social outbreak in Chile, particularly from what we call the Generational implications put into play in this event. The methodology responds to what is known in the social sciences as Multimethod, which includes a variety of techniques to collect data ranging from the application of in-depth interviews, participant observation, press review, and critical analysis of literature. The main results of this theoretical discussion that we present here raise a phenomenon of political re-politicization that has been gradually and progressively forging in Chile, particularly visible since the beginning of the 21st century. In addition to the above, the emergence of a new generational political subjectivity for the current social and political scenario is postulated.

Keywords : Social Outbreak; Social Unrest; Political Subjectivity; Repolitization; Generations.
