AZCOITIA, Alfredo. Río Negro journal (General Roca) and representations about Chile during the early years of the province: a multiscale plot . Rev. Pilquen. secc. cienc. soc. [online]. 2013, vol.16, n.1, pp.00-00. ISSN 1851-3123.

Over two hundred years as independent republics of Chile and Argentina have started wars against all their neighbours but never faced each other, this fact acquires greater importance if one takes into account that both States share one of the longest borders in the world. Throughout the century XIX and XX existed various projects, with interest and force variably, to achieve a process of integration that appealed to the metaphor of "Opened Mountain" as a way to express the spirit that drove him. It is striking that the current process of binational cooperation are presented to the public in terms of breakdown, as if it were a Copernican twist within a long history based on the misunderstandings generated by the omnipresent border dispute. The above here invites us to venture into the stormy beginning of the pretorizacion of the Argentine State in search of representations about Chile that enrich and complejicen the image of the "expansionist neighbor" canonized by dictatorships and nationalistic currents. In accordance with the above, the article proposes to identify and analyse the discursive representations on Chile prepared and put into circulation by the daily Rio Negro during the years 1960 and 1961. The choice of this journalistic enterprise responds to the great influence that I meditate has had in the region of the upper Valley, space shared by two provinces closely related to the neighboring country throughout its history.
