Resumen

BOCCO, Gerardo et al. Place and sense of place on a road on the Atlantic coast of Patagonia, 1950-1970. Región y sociedad [online]. 2019, vol.31, e1127. ISSN 1870-3925.  https://doi.org/10.22198/rys2019/31/1127.

The purpose of this study is to analyze how octopus collectors (pulperos) built a place and gave a sense of place to a dirt road along a stretch paralleling and bordering the Atlantic coast of Patagonia from 1950 to 1970. A qualitative and participatory methodology was used, based on these ethnographic techniques: interviews, in-depth interviews, field trips and geographical referencing of the places recognized by the pulperos. As a result, informants identified places where pulperos used to settle down; these places were mapped and given toponyms recognized by them. The limitation of the study is that it did not delve into the transformations of the road, although its originality lies in the use of the concepts of paraje (place), sense of place and landscape in the reconstruction of the road on the basis of a artisanal production activity. In conclusion, affections residing in pulperos’ memory were central in the social construction of the road and the parajes as a place in the geographical sense.
