OSORIO FRANCO, Lorena Erika. The construction of the socio-territorial belonging: for Jurica, a town that became a city. Espiral (Guadalaj.) [online]. 2015, vol.22, n.62, pp.141-170. ISSN 1665-0565.

Until the eighties urban anthropology studied urbanization generated by economic growth and expansion of cities from rural-urban migration, but little attention was given to the other side of the coin, the reverse process, meaning of, to the people who "became" the city. This article is about a town located north of the Querétaro city, the study case of Jurica proved to be a good example to account for the various ways in which the natural environment is transformed due to the urban-industrial activities. I was particularly interested in analyzing the relationship between territory and culture because in that from it is possible to distinguish identity references, which are (re) constructed on a spatial and temporal framework that transforms according metropolitan expansion progresses.

Keywords : Urbanization; space; culture; socio-territorial belonging; identity.
