This dissertation is the result of fieldwork conducted between 2011 and 2013 in Tourém , a rural border village between Galicia (Spain) and Portugal . The main focus of the work is the analysis of socio - territorial transformations happening in the village since the late 1960s and early 1970s , at what time the rise of contemporary emigration peaked . We work analysing two different aspects of the changes taking place in the village of Tourém: social and territorial transformations understood by the word of terra. A terra (land) in this context is a highly analytical category , a polysemic term used by the villagers of Tourém that refers to the village from the basis of my land (minha terra). These terras would also be the different destinations of emigrants for those who passed through neighboring village, and finally terra, also refers to the land's agriculture and livestock that are the most important economic activities. Through the life trajectories of the village people and their family histories, we combine theory and ethnographic descriptions with the uses and disuses of the Tourém's terra; as well as different social groups during their respective times who live in the village . More explicitly conversed with concepts such as territoriality , territory and history of the place through the narratives of the families, residents and life trajectories (AU)
