MAYORGA ROJEL, Alberto Javier; VALDEBENITO, Luis Nitrihual  and  FIERRO BUSTOS, Juan Manuel. Social Imaginary, Collective Memory, and Construction of Territories after 30 Years of the Military Takeover in Chile. anagramas rumbos sentidos comun. [online]. 2012, vol.10, n.20, pp.19-35. ISSN 1692-2522.

This article deals with the need for making a reflection on the configuration process of ''collective memory'' and ''territories'' shared in relation to September 11th, 1973 after 30 years of the military takeover in Chile, from a socio-semiotic point of view. Therefore, our proposal involves the following main objectives: 1) on the one hand, to present a conceptual description and discussion in relation to concepts such as ''collective memory,'' ''text,'' ''borderlines,'' and ''territories,'' based on the theoretical statements of Maurice Halbwachs, Manuel Antonio Garretón, René Kaës, Luri Lotman, Cristina Peñamarín, among others; 2) on the other hand, to make a contribution to a reflection on the already named concepts by analyzing an institutional discourse practice, delivering results and final considerations in relation to the purpose of our analytical interests.

Keywords : Political speech; socio-semiotics; social imaginaries; collective memory; military takeover in Chile.
