[Sociology. On “villas” or slums of Buenos Aires. Delves into theories and conceptualizations of neighborhoods (”barrios”). Considers the networks and social relations which come to exist within the “villas,” as well as their transformations. Looks into questions of urban segregation, housing profiles of individuals living in these slums, and the inhabitants’ views of the slums and their neighbors. This study asks the question of whether there is a slum identity (”identidad villera”).].
