Field trip to Pichilemu..


Well, the purpose of going to there it was get data with respect to theme elected. In my case “The Pichilemu’s identity” so we decided to do surveys and interviews to capture the perspective of people in front of this issue. Our study area included interior villages that also belong to the Pichilemu’s commune, such as Los Ciruelos y Pañul. The most interesting part of the field trip for me occurred in Pañul, when we had to interview a local woman, who was a clay-artisan. She showed us her workshop and explained the process for make her art. In that moment I felt that we was a chapter of “Tierra Adentro” ajjaja.. I loved that experience!
I learnt that the identity is closely linked with territoriality, that while the administration-political limits try to join the relatively homogeneous areas, within these areas there are differences, so any policy to implement should take into account one crucial factor: SCALE!!
I believe that Pichilemu is a wonderful coastal town, but I wouldn't like to live there.. nor in the interior locations.



  1. I agree with you. Pichilemu is not a homogenous space: there are many identities linked with the territory.
    It was a very rewarding field that allowed us to see beyond the surft and fishing in Pichilemu.

    See ya friend.

    Isn't funny knowing other forms of life, like the woman of the photo, and talkin' about concepts like "identity" and "territory"?
