ETHNOGRAPHY OF NOSTALGIA: TRANSNATIONAL MIGRATION OF CHILOTE COMMUNITIES IN PUNTA ARENAS (CHILE) AND RÍO GALLEGOS (ARGENTINA)
ETNOGRAFÍA DE LA NOSTALGIA: MIGRACIÓN TRANSNACIONAL DE COMUNIDADES CHILOTAS EN PUNTA ARENAS (CHILE) Y RÍO GALLEGOS (ARGENTINA)
The article centers around ethnographic findings of nostalgia from the lived migration between Chilote transnational communities assembled in Punta Arenas (Chile) and Río Gallegos, Argentina. It describes the incorporation of cultural
elements linked to the formation of communities, goods circulation, and meanings extension between places of origin and destination. It emphasizes the representation of popular music in Chiloé as a category of analysis and interpretation to understand migratory experiences and multi-centered assemblages. This allows the reflection of methodologies in movement (multilocal ethnography) and localization of multigeographic interacted contexts.
