Abstract

The neoliberal city has recently become a central subject of study in urban studies. One of the aspects analyzed is the extension of the pressure exerted by the real estate market and urban renewal, an activity based in the constant destruction and reconstruction of cities. However, there are few studies focused on how these processes are experienced and perceived by dwellers within the context of their daily lives. Through the study of social conflicts against specific urban projects in defense of neighborhoods in Santiago Centro, Chile, this paper explores the nostalgia due to urban changes in the past. This research is based on an ethnographic field work conducted from 2014 to 2015 with groups of dwellers involved in the defense and promotion of the heritage value of the Matta Sur neighborhood. The aim of this paper is to analyze and question the use, presence and emergence of nostalgia within the space dimension and its current socio-cultural role in the production of cities.
