Artículo:
How have the social sciences theoretically contributed to produce movements of Chilean pobladores and Brazilian favelados during the twentieth century? Through a critical review of the main theories that seek to understand political actions of the urban poor in Santiago de Chile and Rio de Janeiro, I will reveal the close relationship between these movements and the production of social sciences, in which operates a double hermeneutic, i.e. a mutually influential reflexive process that would eventually help in the constitution and recognition of the movements as such. This research analyzes how social sciences perform the same social struggles that they attempt to describe, in other words, how certain academic contexts interact positively or negatively with the political and social disputes generated from the movements in question. Therefore, I review the main perspectives of those who studied the urban social issue, the theories of marginality, dependent urbanization, urban social movements, utilitarian, and new social movements, showing how these interpretations alternated between requiem, rediscovery, and denial of favelados and pobladores as social movements.
