LINARES, María Dolores. New urban landscapes at the border: the paseras between Posadas (Argentina) and Encarnación (Paraguay) and Yacyretá work plan (2009-2010). Si Somos Americanos [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.1, pp.65-94. ISSN 0719-0948.

The objective of the present article is to describe the changes in the urban landscape at the border area of Posadas (Argentine)-Encarnación (Paraguay) in the last ten years: the Plan de Terminación Yacyretá (final stage of the Represa Hidroeléctrica Binacional Yacyretá) and analyze its impact on the cross-border dynamics of informal trade by the Paraguayan women called "paseras". We made multi-situated interviews to the trans-frontier actor called "pasera" between the years 2009 and 2010, which were processed by "compared life-stories" tecniques and we used unpublished documents of the Empresa Binacional Yacyretá as secondary sources.

Keywords : border; social practices; urban landscape.
