VALDEBENITO TAMBORINO, Felipe. Mobility and spatiality on the Tacna-Arica (trans)border. Southern Peru and northern Chile. Si Somos Americanos [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.1, pp.39-64. ISSN 0719-0948.

This article discusses the relation between mobility social processes and spatial forms that those processes produce on the Tacna-Arica border (southern Peru and northern Chile). This issue is studied with a multidimentional, processual, and multisited ethnographic perspective. The category of spatiality is also proposed as alternative of approximation to the problem been studied. The interpretation of the ethnography suggests that Tacna and Arica presented a transborder spatiality which is characterized by the common share of contemporaneous mobility social process.

Keywords : mobility; border; northern Chile.
