  • Un amigo americano: Lincoln Kirstein en Argentina en los años de la
           política del Buen Vecino
    • Abstract: En los años recientes, los estudios sobre redes culturales y sus implicaciones en América Latina han atraído la atención de muchos investigadores. El caso de las redes creadas entre Norteamérica y Sud América durante la década de 1940 ilustran cómo la diplomacia cultural había diseñado herramientas para reforzar los lazos de la denominada política del Buen Vecino.1 Durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, algunas instituciones como la OCIAA (Oficina del Coordinador de Asuntos Interamericanos) o el MoMA (Museo de Arte Moderno) (ambas vinculadas a la familia Rockefeller) jugaron un importante rol en la promoción de la política de entendimiento mutuo y de intercambio cultural entre las dos Américas.2Una de las más ...

  • Música popular y resistencia política en Venezuela
           (2002–2018)
    • Abstract: La llegada de la llamada Revolución bolivariana propició la fractura del campo cultural venezolano y el consecuente surgimiento de un subcampo oficial (o revolucionario) y un subcampo no alineado (o disidente). Podemos situar esta escisión a partir del periodo posterior a la huelga general de 2002–2003, cuando el gobierno de Hugo Chávez impulsó la radicalización de las políticas culturales. El punto de inflexión de este proceso es la creación del Ministerio del Poder Popular para la Cultura en 2005, con Francisco (Farruco) Sesto a la cabeza.El nuevo aparato cultural concentró sus esfuerzos en las producciones cinematográficas, el circuito de orquestas juveniles y, entre otras prácticas, la formación y promoción de ...

  • Kurt Hollander’s Joyous Life and the Architecture of Sex
    • Abstract: Kurt Hollander is a filmmaker, writer, and photographer from New York City who has spent half his life in Latin America (Mexico and Colombia). His current project combines photography and writing to explore sexual practices and popular culture in Colombia, particularly in relation to the architecture and interiors of love motels, brothels, and erotic videochat studios. Hollander considers these sites to be part of a cultural world of pleasure that combine quasi-artistic and ethnological expression with the promotion of good public health à la Wilhelm Reich. What follows is an interview I conducted with Hollander on September 6, 2019, that sheds light on his quirky new project and what it says about sexuality in the ... Read More

  • Afro-Paradise: Blackness, Violence, and Performance in Brazil by Christen
           A. Smith (review)
    • Abstract: Scholars across the humanistic and social science disciplines have argued about racism’s role in shaping Brazil’s cultural profile for nearly a century. While some argue that the lack of segregationist laws and the country’s embrace of a Freyrian model of racial contiguity precludes the possibility of racism, their challengers insist that persisting inequalities in light- and dark-skinned Brazilians’ socio-economic status, health, and safety quantifiably demonstrate otherwise. Christen Smith’s impassioned text confronts this debate head-on, insisting within its first pages that “there are tangible effects of racial discrimination that define racial subjectivities and make them legible. . . . Denying that race is ... Read More

  • Escape to Miami: An Oral History of the Cuban Rafter Crisis by Elizabeth

    • Abstract: Escape to Miami: An Oral History of the Cuban Rafter Crisis de Elizabeth Campisi es un libro relevante y urgente para conocer las complejidades de las políticas migratorias en los Estados Unidos, así como para comprender el sufrimiento emocional y la resiliencia colectiva surgidas ante dichas políticas. A través de los testimonios de balseros cubanos detenidos en la base militar de Guantánamo entre los años de 1994 y 1996, Escape to Miami analiza la complejidad emocional y política de enviar a poblaciones no deseadas a bases militares o campos de refugiados extraterritoriales como islas, desiertos, fronteras o lugares de acceso limitado con el fin de 1) evitar protestas y de 2) disfrazar de ayuda los abusos ...

    • Abstract: In this revised and expanded edition, Rudolfo Anaya, renowned author of Bless Me Ultima (1972) and Heart of Aztlán (1976); Francisco A. Lomelí, senior scholar of Chicano and Latin American literature; and Enrique R. Lamadrid, folklorist and cultural historian, provide new insights into Chicano cultural identity as reflected in the many perceptions and interpretations of the mythical land of Aztlán. Composed of four parts, divided into twenty chapters, the authors take an interdisciplinary approach as they present Aztlán as a place that encapsulates both the past and the future for the Chicano people.Each chapter presents multiple perceptions and interpretations of the meaning of Aztlán to the Chicano people.

           Talks ed. by Amanda Villepastour (review)
    • Abstract: Aunque el interés académico por las prácticas religiosas de origen yoruba en Cuba data de comienzos del siglo XX con los trabajos realizados por los pioneros de la etnografía cubana Fernando Ortiz, Lydia Cabrera y Rómulo Lachatañeré, el nuevo milenio ha traído un renovado enfoque que incluye el estudio no solo de la isla caribeña, pero de África y Brasil. La gran mayoría de estos se centra en las deidades principales del panteón y diver-sas ceremonias como la adivinación mediante el mérìdínlógún o el oráculo de Ifá. Un área que no ha recibido la necesaria atención ha sido los tambores bàtá y la deidad asociada con los mismos, Àyàn o Añá (en Cuba). Este libro intenta remediar esta situación proveyendo un estudio ... Read More

  • YouTube Kitsch and the Racial Politics of Taste in the Andes: The Case of
           Delfín Quishpe
    • Abstract: In the second half of the 2000s, three indigenous musicians—Delfín Quishpe from Ecuador, and Wendy Sulca and La Tigresa del Oriente from Peru—went from complete obscurity to transnational stardom in the most unexpected and rapid of fashions. Their sudden fame was propelled by music clips published on YouTube, a platform that, at the time, and despite its newness, was quickly altering the landscape of pop culture and the music industry in Latin America, as with the rest of the world. The videos “ Torres gemelas” by Delfín and “Nuevo amanecer” by La Tigresa, both published on YouTube in 2006, and “La tetita” by Wendy, published in 2008, quickly went viral, and by the end of the decade had gained more than ten ...

  • La Palmada en la Frente (1970): Political Cartoons, the Global Sixties,
           and Popular Culture in Chile
    • Abstract: When we cannot get a proverb, or a joke, or a ritual, we know we are on to something. By picking at the document where it is most opaque, we may be able to unravel an alien system of meaning. The thread might even lead into a strange and wonderful world view.1La Palmada en la Frente (1970), literally translated as “Face Palm,” was a one-issue political cartoon magazine, drawn and written by right-wing cartoonist Luis Goyenechea Zegarra, also known as Lugoze. This magazine presented a series of images of what Chile might become if the first socialist president of the nation, Salvador Allende, was elected. While short-lived, La Palmada en la Frente belonged to a world of political cartoon magazines and newspapers ... Read More

  • Politicians on Campaign: Cristina Fernández’s Visual and Discursive
           Strategies of Persuasion in the Parliamentary Elections of 2017
    • Abstract: As Patrick Charaudeau has explained (2009b, 283), politics is a field in which symbolic relations of force conquer and manage a power that can only be exercised when it is based on an acquired and attributed legitimacy. Yet this is not enough, as the political actor striving for legitimacy must also appear credible and capable of persuading the largest number of individuals with whom they should share certain values. This means politics involves both constituting a political ideology that should represent an idealized value system and managing opinion in order to establish a consensus.In a political campaign, the main objective is to secure the highest number of votes and therefore win the election. Political ... Read More

  • Breaking the Middle East Media Paradigm: HispanTV Streaming Politics in
           Spanish from Iran
    • Abstract: We are what we watch on screens. We live in globalized societies, watch channels, and browse websites from everywhere, building our identities in relation to other people. Sometimes we look pretty close by for people and places to relate with, but most of the times we seek this connection on screens. Since television’s inception, some scholars and societies have seen in it a technology for the subordination of cultures under the empire of banality. In the same way, television has been described as a perfect propaganda transmitter intended for an audience beyond the metropolis frontier. However, this paradigm between the producer and consumers has been challenged due to recently launched media industries willing to ... Read More

  • Tiburcio González Rojas: Photographic Avatars of Modern Paraguay
    • Abstract: There continues to be an enormous amount of historical and archival research to be done toward establishing a national photographic record for Paraguay, a country that, while its landscape has attracted a respectable amount of visual interest, has yet to possess a legacy of great photographic artists.2 One must patiently wait for the conditions of cultural production in democratic Paraguay to continue to become strong enough for such a legacy to begin to emerge, while at the same time welcome with enthusiasm fragments of artistic endeavor that are part of the prehistory of such a legacy.3 Such is the case of the recently recovered, restored, and displayed work of Tiburcio González Rojas (1934'–).4 A native of ...
