Abstract

GONZALEZ-ROJAS, Valentina Soledad  and  GUERRERO-VALDEBENITO, Rosa María. SOCIO-SPACIAL HABITUS IN COASTAL COMMUNITIES UNDER THE NEOLIBERAL CONTEXT: THE CASE OF EL MORRO COVE, TALCAHUANO. Urbano (Concepc.) [online]. 2020, vol.23, n.42, pp.56-65. ISSN 0717-3997.  http://dx.doi.org/10.22320/07183607.2020.23.42.05.

Coves are coastal settlements, marked by their productive vocation, linked to artisanal fishing. In them, specific forms of inhabiting appear that give rise to socio-spatial practices that produce and reproduce space and that in this document, we will call socio-spatial habitus (Giglia, 2012). Currently, these settlements and communities have been threatened by the homogenizing advance of neoliberal urban expansion. This article describes the characteristics of the socio-spatial habitus of El Morro Cove in Talcahuano and its expressions during and after the 2010 tsunami. The methodology incorporates qualitative techniques such as interviews and the revision of photographic archive material; and quantitative, such as a review of statistics and territorial planning instruments. The analysis is a cartographic and historical synthesis of the socio-spatial practices of the cove, its nodes and potentialities for the preservation of the settlement and its culture. The results show that the cove is positioned as a frontier within the urban space, a heterotopia (Lefebvre, 2013), which resists natural threats and abstract space, characterized by global urbanization that threatens the regional and national coastline.

Keywords : Differential space; to inhabit; socio-spatial habitus; neoliberalism; urban cove.
