ABSTRACT
This study was focused in recovering the collective memory of a cooperative of urban transport in Bogotá, inquiringinto the frames of reference that it gives to the practices inside the organization and which allow the recognition of thismemory in its environment. The study was oriented from a qualitative perspective and the information was obtainedusing groups of discussion, trying this way to accede to people’s particular constructions when they “remembertogether” past events. The data obtained was organized by means of matrixes and trees of relationships. Categorieswere established on these stories, which were analyzed by means of discourse analysis.
