PORTAL, María Ana  and  SANCHEZ MEJORADA, Cristina. Estrategias culturales, estructuras tradicionales y gestión social en el pueblo urbano de San Pablo Chimalpa. Nueva antropol [online]. 2010, vol.23, n.73, pp.119-146. ISSN 0185-0636.

The aim of this work is to describe key aspects of the social and religious structure of San Pablo Chimalpa -located at the Cuajimalpa delegation in Mexico City- as well as the way it links with some of the processes of participation and with negotiations for community services and improvements. How the town is represented vís-a-vís the delegation's urban governmental structures has a central role in this process. Three historically-anchored patterns contribute to the understanding of current changes in the town: the kin-based socio-religious exchange system, the pattern of local political representation, and the history of the city's expansion and absorption of small, rural towns.

Keywords : México City; urban towns; religious structures; management.
