The cultural history is shown as a difficult space owing to the weakness of its meaning; different streams of historical and social thought have appropriated indiscriminate of the concept, causing in this way an intense debate around it. This article was inspired mainly because the sharpness of the discussion, but is thought as a document that observes the traditional tendencies of cultural history taking into account the more recent contributions. As a theoretical document, it does not say much about the specific case of Latin America, although the analysis explicitly observes the problematic of the American subcontinent. Mainly, this text observes the subject' participation as the builder of his own history analyzing three central aspects: consumption of cultural goods (Industry), the promotion of them (Cultural policies), and the resistance forms generates through the cultural goods (Cultural movement). It is possible to see that culture is directly related with the established of policies that help the cultural goods' promotion, but those assumed different meaning related to the personal interest of the consumers.
