CUEVAS, Yazmín; PASOS-OSNAYA, Melisa-Yolanda  and  ROMO-ROMO, Erika. Activist students of the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters and their social experience during the collective action of September 2018. Rev. iberoam. educ. super [online]. 2021, vol.12, n.34, pp.176-195.  Epub Aug 30, 2021. ISSN 2007-2872.

The purpose of this article is to analyze the social experience of activist students enrolled in the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters of the National Autonomous University of Mexico during the collective action that was carried out in September 2018 as an answer to a violent attack towards the student community. The research used Dubet’s proposal of social experience, which results from the articulation of three logics of action: integration, strategy and subjectification. The author makes use of a qualitative methodology by means of eight interviews and questionnaires that were carried out with student activists. The results show that the logic of integration to the collective action of these students was due to the indignation of the attacks on their community and in solidarity with it; the logic of strategy consisted in the generation of different repertoires of collective action (strikes, marches); the logic of subjectivation implied criticism and learning from their participation in this action.
