"Mexicans without religion at the beginning of the 21st century. Between spaces of definition: the context of Mexico City and Chiapas"
Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Roberto Blancarte (El Colegio de México)
My research problematizes who the population recorded in the census category “non religious” on the map of beliefs in Mexico is. More specifically, it asks: “What is the behavior of this population in terms of beliefs and practices?” and “What are their trajectories and social conditions?” The research is conducted in two contexts: urban, in Benito Juarez and non-urban, in the municipality of San Pablo Chalchihuitán in Chiapas. The first with a percentage of 10.1% of individuals who say they do not have religion, and the second with a percentage of 45.4%. Particularly, we work with a qualitative methodology using semi-structured interviews with individuals in each context that define themselves without religion, all from the theoretical perspective and debate about secularism.
