VELASCO ORTIZ, Laura. Identidad regional y actores: una experiencia de intervención sociológica en el valle de San Quintín, Baja California. Región y sociedad [online]. 2011, vol.23, n.51, pp.43-70. ISSN 2448-4849.

This article presents the systematization of a two-year sociological intervention among a group of activists in the agricultural export region known as the San Quintín valley-on the border between Mexico and the United States-which aimed to study the emergence of a regional identity due to the mobilization of residents and agricultural workers during the last two decades of the twentieth century. In the course of our research to define a regional identity, we found a transformation of the identity of the movement which is linked to macro-structural changes in the area and a struggle against exclusion.

Keywords : regional identity; actors; sociological intervention; collective action; immigration and ethnicity.
