PAA­S ANDRADE, Marcela A.. The cultural spread within the regional integration between Concordia (Argentina) and Salto (Uruguay). Antropol. soc. cult. Urug. [online]. 2015, vol.13, pp.75-89. ISSN 1510-3846.

Currently, the city of Concordia has an active presence of Uruguayans (residents or tourist) and as well as “renewed” political cultural speeches about integration. These facts reveal the need of re-thinking and re-integrating the symbolic boundaries and the identity reconfigurations that interpellate social and cultural ways of -politically- living in the city. In this context, the spreading, promotion and participation of certain “binational” cultural practices are significant to be studied. From a socio-anthropological perspective, the dialectic between theory and fieldwork would allow us to dialectically rebuild the boundaries, from the complexity that the cultural space has in daily life. We would refer to three study-cases (The Revista Boca a Boca, the Feria de las Golondrinas and the Primer Encuentro Internacional de Candombe de las dos orillas) to identify and understand the different social actors that impulse the development of the cultural area. In this way, we will analyze how different and unequal identities configuration and ways of using the city are generated, which reflect existing gaps of the local current cultural policy.
