ABSTRACT
The hypothesis regarding the relation between personal networks and residential density proposes that in both, low residential density and high residential density, sociability decreases. Despite that, the urban space can be a fertile ground for the consolidation and multiplication of sociability in some specific contexts.
Santiago de Chile is analyzed in different representative neighborhoods of the city, in their different densities and urban characteristics, taking into account the economic and demographic changes, in order to evaluate the structure and composition of personal networks of their residents.
The theoretical framework is based on the idea of relational social capital of Nan Lin, as well as the understanding of social capital as one of the forms of capital, following Pierre Bourdieu. In addition, understanding geography as a structure that encourages or inhibits social relations and a structure that is shaping a new kind of solidarity, as has been described by Francoise Ascher and Barry Wellman.
The methodology corresponds to the analysis of egocentric personal networks of residents in representative neighborhoods of the city in Santiago de Chile.
