GAVAZZO, Natalia; BEHERAN, Mariana  and  NOVARO, Gabriela. Schooling as a milestone in the biographies of Bolivian children in Buenos Aires. REMHU, Rev. Interdiscip. Mobil. Hum. [online]. 2014, vol.22, n.42, pp.189-212. ISSN 1980-8585.

This project is the result of three works of research conducted using social anthropological methods to analyze the experiences of the children of Bolivian immigrants in different areas of the city of Buenos Aires and the Province of Buenos Aires. Beginning with the study of the migratory processes from Bolivia and their changes throughout generations, we intend to posit that schooling constitutes a fundamental part of the experiences of children, young migrants and especially the descendents of Bolivian immigrants. Given that this affects their intellectual development, and above all, their national, ethnic, gender, class, and age identifications, we will focus on understanding the role of schooling during this vital stage of youth. Keeping in mind some of the most common representations in the examined cases, we will show that the passage through primary and secondary school is a milestone in the biographies of the children, youth, and descendants of Bolivians who have been raised in Buenos Aires, and we will analyze the impact in their methods of identification and their relationships.

Keywords : youth; migration; education; identification.
