ALVAREZ-VALDES, Carolina  and  GARCES-SOTOMAYOR, Antonia. The making of a generation in the current discourse of Chilean youth. Rev.latinoam.cienc.soc.niñez juv [online]. 2017, vol.15, n.2, pp.991-1004. ISSN 1692-715X.

This article seeks to identify the elements that currently characterize Chilean youth, describing the notions of generation that are present in the discourse of young people. To achieve this, we analyze 14 discussion groups with secondary school students from the cities of Punta Arenas, Concepcion, Talcahuano, Talca, San Fernando and Santiago. The results suggest a relationship with the socio-historical context in which young people act the differentiation and distinction they make between themselves and previous generations and the generational milestone of the 2011 student movement.

Keywords : youth; contemporary society; student movement; Chile; generation.
