Resumen

OCANA RUIZ, Sonia Irene  y  CAPDEPONT-BALLINA, Jorge Luis. Transitory daily life: young Central American migrants in Tabasco and Chiapas, a history in images. Cultura representaciones soc [online]. 2019, vol.13, n.26, pp.269-299. ISSN 2007-8110.  http://dx.doi.org/10.28965/2019-26-10.

Based on a series of photographs taken and disseminated in the social networks of collectives and Shelter-Homes between 2012 and 2016, this text discusses aspects of daily life of young Central American migrants as they pass through the southern border of Mexico. The discussion focuses on the contrasting attitudes that young people exhibit when they feel protected and accompanied either in Shelter Homes or on freight trains (The Beast), with the aim of demonstrating that, whenever possible, they make choices that allow them to exercise some control over their immigration process. This can be seen, for example, in the Hogar-Refugio La 72, which promotes respect for sexual diversity, where young people assume conflicting positions that demonstrate their will to take over their daily lives, beyond the inherent risks and limitations of the migratory transit.
