LEVITA, Gabriel. Political elites and nation: The representations on the national of the Argentine senators (2001-2011). Trab. soc. [online]. 2014, n.23, pp.227-248. ISSN 1514-6871.

In the frame of the question on the characteristics of political elites in Argentina, this article analyzes the representations on the national of the Argentine national senators between 2001 and 2011. Based on a content analysis of the Senate records, we construct a typology of three layers of representations. Firstly, the “shared” are common to all actors. Secondly, the“partisans” express the cleavages set by the Argentine political traditions. A third type is composed with four groups which cross the partisan belonging: the “parish”, the “cosmopolitan”, the “conspiracist” and the “decadentist”. Each one supposes different judgments and assessments made by the actors. The work explores the memories and imaginaries where they come from and puts into context the speeches. The article makes two substantive contributions. On the one hand, it makes a profounder approximation to the representations on the national of political elites. Thus, it considers the available meanings used to justify political positions. On the other hand, it shows how the fact of being justicialist or radical is not a determinant factor of the ideas on the national -and so ideological stances- each senator has.
