NUNEZ, Paula  and  LOPEZ, Silvana. Desigualdades regionales en planificaciones desarrollistas: Una revisión del proceso de territorialización de Río Negro 1958-1976. Rev. geogr. Norte Gd. [online]. 2016, n.63, pp.121-144. ISSN 0718-3402.

This manuscript studies the dynamics of constructing boundaries and the differences within the Río Negro province. We consider 1958, the year the province was established, as a point of inflection in the region. The article seeks to show how the spatial fragmentation of previous years continued, deepening and changing provincial divisions through the restrictions of general interests to certain regional sectors. To this end, we will analyze rarely cited sources: the provincial constitution drafted in 1957 and the government development plans from 1958 and 1976. We will discuss the associated hierarchical construction of regions, illustrating how spatial transformation enabled, paradoxically, the assumption of territory not only as a neutral act, but as justified under an unequal social integration, which by 1973 was beginning to arise in terms of geographical determinism, as inequalities were justified by descriptions of the landscape.

Keywords : Developmentalism; Planning; Río Negro; Landscape; Hierarchy.
