REYES GUTIERREZ, Dulce Rocio. Imagination and memories of the translocal of Central American migrant girls and boys in transit through Mexico. Andamios [online]. 2021, vol.18, n.45, pp.173-194.  Epub Sep 27, 2021. ISSN 2594-1917.

This paper analyzes how Central American migrant girls and boys construct the translocal in their reality, making use of imagination and memory, in a transnational and contingent context such as the one they experience in their mobility process. An argument is outlined that privileges the voice of childhoods, their memories and projections, and examines the communication media, social and family networks, through which their imaginations are configured. Finally, an analytical approach is made that sees these subjective-objective constructions as a form of resistance to the conditions of vulnerability and violence they face in transit.

Keywords : Imagination; memories; translocal; agency; migrant girls and boys.
