RIVERA, Fernando. Topography of "Cronopaisajes" - Social Identities, Cultural Practices and Historical "Plots". univ.humanist. [online]. 2008, n.65, pp. 281-330. ISSN 0120-4807.
Analyzing the concept of social representation and its distinctive connections with the ideological, mentalities, the imaginary and cultural practices, and based on defining urban space as a cultural text, this article proposes an analytical repository of historical interpretation, the "Cronopaisaje," composed of the interaction of architectural-urban forms, a grammar of sociability and mechanisms of regulation and hierarchization, and "escenicas," or interpolative repertoires of cultural practices and social representations which at the very least correspond to levels of autopresentation and identity reference, as well as collective evaluation and qualification. The "Cronopaisaje," then, serves as a configured dynamic for the construction of social identities.
