POBLETE NAREDO, Xóchitl Fabiola. Liminal Identities. The Case of Tsotsil and Tseltal Writers in Chiapas. Alteridades [online]. 2018, vol.28, n.56, pp.85-96. ISSN 2448-850X.

The main axis of the work revolves around the construction of the professional identity of the Tsotsil and Tseltal writers of Los Altos, Chiapas, which interweaves and nourishes from the individual experiences, which involve symbolic representations of the world and collective representations, which are elaborated from social and institutional frameworks. Then, identity is liminal, because it links, not always in harmonic terms, the continuous negotiations and resignifications between what’s objective and subjective; in this respect, the analysis addresses the different strategies used by the writers to build their professional identity, from their biographical trajectories and their process of professionalization.

Keywords : professional identity; literature; indigenous; orality; writing.
