KRIGER, Miriam  and  SAID, Shirly. Engaging in politics at school: biographical narratives of militant student youth in the bicentennial Argentina. Rev.latinoam.cienc.soc.niñez juv [online]. 2017, vol.15, n.2, pp.1085-1096. ISSN 1692-715X.

This article is about the role of school in young people's interactions with politics in Argentina following the country's bicentennial year (2010). The authors present narratives of young activists from different political spaces with the aim of investigating the role that school has had in their trajectories, with a particular focus on their socialization and political subjectivation, incorporating contributions from the Sociology of Individuation. For this purpose, the authors take the arguments that were presented in two group discussions in 2012 and 2013 regarding two key issues for the youth agenda: student memory of the most recent civic-military dictatorship, condensed in the story titled ”œThe Night of the Pencils”, and the change in legislation so that young people aged 16 and older can vote in elections, which was passed in 2012.

Keywords : politics; school; youth militancy; students politicization; political socialization; political subjectivation; individuation.
