  • In This Issue
    • Abstract: Cultural Studies has multiple discourses; it has a number of different histories. It is a whole set of formations; it has its own different conjunctures and moments in the past. It included many different kinds of work. I want to insist on that! It always was a set of unstable formations. It was ‘centered’ only in quotation marks.1The recent death of Stuart Hall has forced many of us engaged in Cultural Studies over the years to take a moment to reflect on his work and legacy. Hall’s particular way of weaving together ideas from literary studies, anthropology, sociology and media studies provided useful models for how to connect culture, power and politics. I would venture to say that most people engaged in ... Read More

  • Dando vueltas por Madrid: espacio urbano, descomposición y realismo
           ideológico en las películas españolas de Marco Ferreri
    • Abstract: “Non voglio provocare.”En 2004 el Festival de cine de San Sebastián dedica una reseña titulada “Incorrectas” a una serie de películas, de ayer y de hoy, que ofrecen una visión desacralizante y perturbadora de la sociedad, y cuya crítica se percibe como todavía vigente. Entre los “incorrectos” figuran Buñuel, los hermanos Marx, Chabrol, Pasolini, von Trier, Waters y Ferreri. En 2009 la filmografía española de Marco Ferreri es el foco de una sección especial del Festival del Cinema Spagnolo en Roma, en cuya ocasión se proyectan dos documentales sobre este director a cargo de Maite Carpio y David Trueba.1 En 2013, es el Festival de Cannes que vuelve a centrarse en Ferreri celebrando, en la sección de los “Clásicos,” ...

  • Efún: “White Love” and Modernity in Guinea
    • Abstract: The image of Africa occupied a significant space in the imaginary of the Franco regime, as it was intimately connected with the rhetoric that aimed to recuperate the imperial past and the “correct” history of Spain. Official discourse portrayed the Spanish people as uniquely suited to colonizing Africa, claiming a lack of racism on the part of Spaniards, as well as a benevolent desire to convert the natives to Catholicism. Franco, in a speech given on June 3, 1961, proclaimed:No puede confundirse la noble empresa de colonización, la elevada tarea de alumbrar pueblos nuevos, entregándoles generosamente—en una verdadera transmutación espiritual—toda la propia herencia de cultura, con este concepto peyorativo y ...

  • Seventeenth Century Environmental Criticism, the Taqui Onqoy and Garcilaso
           de la Vega’s Comentarios reales
    • Abstract: In 1980, a contaminated piece of fruit brought from Europe cost the state of California and the federal government approximately $100 million in order to contain and eliminate a fly outbreak.1 Subsequently, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention established stricter policies to keep unsafe items from entering the United States (CBP.gov).2 The fly outbreak illustrates the impact that environmental issues have upon the policies and expenses of border protection. Such an event also reminds us that even the tiniest living beings can alter the development of people and their ecosystems. Historically, the increased circulation of plants and animals has meant more food ... Read More

  • Still Life/Mexican Death: Mennonites in Visual Culture
    • Abstract: Mennonites in Mexico are often associated with cheese and with the film Stellet Licht (Luz silenciosa).1 This association is partially based on historical and contemporary facts, since these Mennonites do sell cheese called queso menonita and were featured in the film.2 They also do more than star in films and wear overalls. They moved to Mexico from Canada in the 1920s, when the Canadian government was infringing on their religious freedoms by insisting that they send their children to English language public schools.

  • Speculative Ruins: Photographic Interrogations of the Spanish Economic
           Crisis
    • Abstract: The ongoing Spanish economic crisis, which began with the collapse of the housing bubble in 2008, has changed the literal and symbolic landscape of Spain, producing imaginary, uninhabited cities and ruins without memories. A May 2014 Human Rights Watch report noted that “in 2011, almost 3.5 million residences—or 13.7 percent of the total housing stock—stood empty, largely due to over-construction” (Sunderland 14). Yet, despite the fact that Spain is currently littered with unsightly, dangerous and in many cases utterly unusable residential sites, such projects have received fairly minor treatment when viewed alongside other more pressing concerns such as evictions, the high unemployment rate and youth emigration.1 ...

    • Abstract: En las últimas décadas, la historia del estado español ha vivido un proceso de revisión intenso y plural que se ha centrado sobre todo en sus episodios de mayor violencia. El inmenso caudal de palabras vertido en torno a lo que a veces llamamos “memoria histórica” (Sus “recuperaciones,” sus debates), ha renovado sin duda la comprensión de los aspectos más controvertidos de la Guerra Civil Española y la posterior represión franquista. Sin embargo, otros acontecimientos menos presentes en los debates públicos, aunque igualmente cruciales para entender la complejidad y la dureza del legado dictatorial, han resultado comparativamente desatendidos. Concretamente, me refiero a los procesos que se suelen agrupar bajo ... Read More

    • Abstract: Teri Gender Bender es la creadora, compositora, vocalista y líder de la banda de punk de garaje mexicano Le Bucherettes, la cual ganó rápidamente la aprobación de los círculos de cultura alternativa en Guadalajara, México. Con actos caracterizados por el uso de sangre sintética, utensilios de cocina y una cabeza de cerdo, la popularidad de la agrupación se expandió por el resto del país. En sus presentaciones, Teri efectúa performance artísticos mediante los cuales se rebela ante las convecciones sociales a las que se siente sujeta. Las letras de Le Bucherettes son directas y estridentes, reflejando frustración e inconformidad ante el maltrato social, la desigualdad de género y sus desdichas personales. La ... Read More

En 1996 Reforma lo envió a Ciudad Juárez para investigar sobre Abdul Latif Sharif, un sospechoso implicado por el gobierno en el feminicidio de varias mujeres.2 A partir de esta experiencia González Rodríguez empezó a escribir sobre el feminicido, publicando artículos y eventualmente, en 2002, publicó el libro investigativo Huesos en el desierto. A la vez que González Rodríguez estaba investigando el feminicidio, en España, el escritor chileno Roberto Bolaño, también estaba haciendo sus propias investigaciones sobre el fenómeno para su novela 2666 (2004).

We are immersed in a socially and environmentally unsustainable globalizing system that promotes a teleological conception of progress based on relentless competition, capital accumulation, over-consumption, energy depletion, and debt-driven economic growth. Neoliberal globalization generates and exacerbates the present ecological crisis. The ongoing economic and ecological crises are interconnected, because when the hegemonic economic system grows, it depletes the environment and when it does not grow ... Read More

How is the everyday experienced within a Catalan/ Spanish context? Are there particular experiences that achieve a specific and unique representation or theoretical response in art, film or literature? Other research questions included: how and to what extent issues of identity, space, historical memory and immigration, have affected everyday life in Spain, and how ... Read More

Por eso tiene que amoldarse a lo que tiene alrededor, a su zona, a un lugar propio que le resulta entonces familiar, que no le llama la atención (Heidegger 128-30). No es una condición objetiva, es la percepción del viviente que se ajusta a la porción de mundo asignada, empezando por lo que está ahí, próximo o distante, según sus intereses, sus miradas, sus deseos. Desplegando sus técnicas, el ser humano convierte el lugar originario en un hábitat, donde el recién nacido se encuentra rodeado de pocos o muchos objetos, de utensilios y juguetes. A partir de los que pueda manejar e incluso inventar, ese niño ... Read More

    • Abstract: Carles Soldevila’s ingenious and cheerful L’art d’ensenyar Barcelona (The Art of Showing Barcelona) (1929) stands as a unique “guide for guides” amongst what was, by the end of the 1920s, a growing collection of travel books aimed at visitors to the Catalan capital. By focusing however, not on the needs of tourists, business travellers or pilgrims but rather on the specific necessities of those residents who receive foreign visitors, Soldevila (1892-1967) provides a text that contributes to both the diversification of travel literature at the time and, by extension, our understanding of how the increasingly cosmopolitan elite of Barcelona saw their city and were encouraged to look at it. In this essay, I argue that ... Read More

Se trata de un breve ensayo reflexivo sobre la vida de cada día, sobre la representación de la vida ordinaria de los hombres y las mujeres comunmente llamados “ordinarios.” Ante todo, el texto de Blanchot desarrollaba una apasionante especulación sobre las dificultades de “pensar” una categoría epistemológica problemática llamada a veces “lo cotidiano” y otras, “vida cotidiana,” “vida corriente,” “vida de cada día,” “vida ordinaria” o, incluso, “infraordinaria” o “infra-cotidiana.” ...

También, con ello, palabra y cambio: palabra y nuevo orden.El mismo Nuevo Testamento nos plantea un segundo inicio. En este caso no de la mano del evangelista Juan, quien como sabemos obvia el episodio, ni de la de Marcos. Lo firma Mateo: “Jesús nació en Belén, un pueblo de la región de Judea, en el tiempo en que Herodes era rey del país. Llegaron por entonces a ... Read More

His comedies were mainly performed at the Romea theatre and many of them were written specifically for him by experienced authors; however, he was best known for his monologues. This genre was explored by other actors as well, but it was Capri who transformed it in as many manifestos of his philosophy of everyday life, sometimes with an ironic or even sarcastic tone, others with a more aloof when not cynical one. An approach that many in Catalonia have tried to emulate through monologue. Most of Capri’s monologues, approximately forty, reissued several times, are now available online, but were recorded originally on vinyl by ... Read More

What lingered after them was not life, which always overcomes natural death, but the most trivial list of mundane facts: a clock ticking on a wall, a room dim at noon, and the outrageousness of a human being thinking only of herself.The sense of emptiness described in the paragraph brings forth both the puzzling mystery of the gaps of ...

To the skeptic, such an amalgamation of seemingly disparate subject matters may smack of scholarly alchemy, conveniently combining in a single monograph recent intellectual issues that grace the pages of Fraser’s previous publications, which are legion.And yet, much like Cervantes’s anachronistic knight, Fraser deserves praise for gaining much where much has been ventured. If the world of Benet is as “dazzlingly complex” ... Read More

  • Jewish Spain: A Mediterranean Memory by Tabea Alexa Linhard (review)
    • Abstract: The Hebrew term Sepharad, meaning Spain, has a profound meaning among a substantial part of the world Jewry. The concept is first mentioned as a geographical reference in the Hebrew Bible and has since taken on a strong poetic and symbolic meaning throughout centuries. Some scholars have argued that the name concept suggests the colonization of the Iberian Peninsula by Jews after the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 CE, which led to the Jewish obliged dispersion (galut) to various parts of Europe. Although a “Jewish Spain” never existed, the Sephardim—Jews of Spanish and Portuguese origin—formed a rich and diverse community that spread among the Christian kingdoms of Iberia until their forced exile in 1492. ...

In the Introduction, he builds on and carefully distinguishes his contribution from work by Joan Roca i Albert, Mari Paz Balibrea, Joan Ramon Resina, Donald McNeill and Manuel Delgado Ruiz, all the while disentagling oversimplifications of Marxism and referencing the likes of Althusser, Harvey, Jameson, Rancière, and Negri. From these opening pages the reader may correctly surmise that Illas wants to interrogate each term in his book’s title: not just “Barcelona,” then, but also the part about “Thinking.” What results is an ambitious work with a ...

This was a fascinating 2010 essay in the Journal of Literary and Cultural Disability Studies, on two Spanish films that were positioned to attract international attention: Pedro Almodóvar’s Live Flesh [Carne Trémula] (1997), adapted from a book by Ruth Rendell, and Alejandro Amenábar’s The Sea Inside [Mar adentro] (2004), adapted from the life of Ramón Sampedro.

Es inevitable afirmarlo” (11). With this in mind, one might reasonably ask, why write a book that seems to have been written many times before? Aguado is prepared with a rejoinder, of course, in which he lays out his plan as well as his justification. The book seeks difference, he argues, through the exploration of alternative memories and identities which have been confounded and often silenced by the traditional infrastructure of power in Spain. Aguado does not lay out explicitly how this authority ... Read More

Nearly three and a half decades later, however, the question that comes to mind pertains not so much to what actually happened during the two days of the takeover of Parliament (much is known about the facts of the incident) but rather what did it mean to the fledgling democracy still seeking to define its identity and affirm its legitimacy. As Francisca López and Enric Castelló remind us in Cartografías del 23-F, the traditional story of F-23 has generally been seen as a ... Read More

La primera, la expresa una de las protagonistas de la farsa El eterno femenino (1975) de Rosario Castellanos, cuando insiste en la necesidad de inventarse. Para las mujeres mexicanas, según Castellanos en los años 70, no es suficiente seguir modelos impuestos ni limitarse a buscar su identidad, sino esgrimir la imaginación como principal herramienta. La otra noción aparece más recientemente en los ensayos críticos de Margo Glantz, la cual declara su plena conciencia de ser eslabón activo de una tradición de escritura femenina, de un colectivo en continuo crecimiento de “hijas de la Malinche.” Con ...

The subject matter of Amago’s book attests to film scholars’ growing attention to Spanish film production and confirms that Spain still provides an effective model “for looking at the productive interplay between globally ...
