Resumen

HIDALGO VILLEGAS, Liliana Natali. The University Imaginary: What does the University Mean to Student Youth in Guadalajara, Mexico?. Rev. pueblos front. digit. [online]. 2017, vol.12, n.23, pp.175-202. ISSN 1870-4115.  http://dx.doi.org/10.22201/cimsur.18704115e.2017.23.292.

This paper addresses youth’s social imaginary significations regarding the university. By means of analyzing 48 interviews, certain specific points were delineated in interpretative charts the students created to make meaning of their reality. A review of the concept of the imaginary implied taking a look at exploring and reconstructing meaning as part of the heritage of socially instituted knowledge. Furthermore, the main results include the notion of the university as a construct based on its positive and negative evaluation, its spatial-temporary condition and the role that university students play in education, in Mexico. This reflection provides a context within which to debate professional training and the substantial realities of university life.

Palabras llave : youth; imaginary; significations; university.
