  • La violencia y los límites de la crítica en la producción
           cultural contemporánea
    • Abstract: Encima de nuestras espaldas ponen la carne humeante y la cortan con tenedor y cuchillo – en nuestras mismas espaldas–, a pesar del dolor y los gritos, de nuestra sangre que se cofunde con la sangre de carne de res ligeramente asada, y luego … la sazonan con cremas picantes y vinagre y jugo de limón, y sonríen al ver cómo se filtran esos jugos inmisericordes por nuestras heridas.Calcularon pocas las probabilidades de que los fragmentos incandescentes del satélite causaran víctimas al caer. ¡Acertaron! Sólo causaron "daños colaterales".En Violence and the Limits of Representation (2013), Graham Matthews y Sam Goodman señalan que la violencia "is one of the major issues, if not the issue, of our age" (1). La historia ... Read More

  • El arte de la violencia sistémica. La explotación neoliberal como
           estética y mercancía en el cine mexicano contemporáneo
    • Abstract: La persistencia de lo violento como mecanismo de representación en el cine mexicano, es, como sucede en otras cinematografías del sur global, una marca de la compleja articulación existente entre sus ideologías representacionales y su relación como estética y mercancía al capitalismo neoliberal. El linchamiento a pedradas de María Candelaria (Dolores del Río) en la película homónima (1943) de Emilio Fernández, el asesinato (también a pedradas) de un joven en Los olvidados (Luis Buñuel, 1950) a manos del Jaibo (Roberto Cobo), el linchamiento colectivo de los empleados de la Universidad de Puebla por parte de los habitantes de un pueblo en Canoa (Felipe Cazals, 1975) y el brutal choque automovilístico que rompe las ...

  • Ethics, Spectacle, and Violence in Álex de la Iglesia's La chispa de
           la vida
    • Abstract: Álex de la Iglesia's Las brujas de Zugarramurdi (2013) boasts having won the most number of awards at the 28th edition of the Goya Awards. Though not the first feature by the director to win Spain's most prestigious prize, the fact that seven of the statuettes were for so-called technical categories speaks volumes to the reception of a director that was previously seen as "a popular generic auteur" (Rodríguez Ortega 53, emphasis in the original), or, worst yet, a director who lacked a certain seriousness in portraying Spanish society. By working with genres such as the black comedy – previously fallen to the wayside under the Ley Miró – the director has further cultivated an aesthetic acumen, with certain films ... Read More

  • Fanatismo en tiempos de guerra y neoliberalismo: Poeta ciego de Mario

    • Abstract: El presente artículo analiza las novelas Poeta ciego (1998) de Mario Bellatin y Un ejército de locos (2003) de José B. Adolph dentro de la dinámica social establecida por el fanatismo como estructura de sentimiento dominante en el Perú de la década de los noventa. Entre 1980 y 2001, Perú experimentó su más severo conflicto armado desde la independencia. Una sangrienta guerra interna entre el gobierno y los grupos terroristas Partido Comunista del Perú Sendero Luminoso y el Movimiento Revolucionario Túpac Amaru.

  • Cultural Responses to Urban Violence in 21st Century Brazil: New Writers
           Speak from the Margins
    • Abstract: Discussions concerning contemporary Latin America often focus on old and new forms of organizing and controlling marginalized groups in the massive urban spaces continuously spreading across the territory. The fear of violence, the emergence of middle and upper-class essentially self-sufficient fortified citadels, the expansion of violent criminality, and the continuous infringement of citizenship rights – ironically within a context of recent re-democratization – all contribute to the representation of an experience of the city as inherently violent. While the dominant discourse of violence and fear of violence is outlined by the reinforcement of excessive use of force against socially and racially marginalized ... Read More

  • Trapped in the Labyrinth: Postwar Guatemala and the Challenge of Literary
           Representation in Rodrigo Rey Rosa's El material humano
    • Abstract: How should one write fiction about the torture and massacre of civilian populations? How to convey the horror of genocidal war without diminishing or trivializing it on the one hand, and without overwhelming readers and leaving them desensitized on the other? How does one write about the violence and pervasive fear that persist when a peace settlement does little to address the economic inequality, social injustice, and official impunity that led to war? These are not hypothetical questions for writers attempting to represent in fiction Guatemala's recent history of conflict. Between the 1954 coup that inaugurated more than 30 years of military dictatorship and the signing of the 1996 peace accords that ended the ... Read More

  • Memoria y erotismo: Representaciones metafóricas de la violencia
           franquista en La muchacha de las bragas de oro de Juan Marsé
    • Abstract: Desde su publicación en 1978, la crítica ha visto la novela La muchacha de las bragas de oro de Juan Marsé como una obra "apresurada, fallida" (Villanueva 99) y "frustrada" (Basanta 90). Incluso más recientemente Santos Alonso, en su estudio sobre la evolución de la novela española durante la presente democracia, la denomina "uno de sus títulos más flojos" (81). Este último considera la novela de Marsé merecedora de unas escasas líneas en las que la resume como una "historia erótica [en la que] un anciano escritor … revive antiguos fantasmas eróticos con su sobrina" (81). Como vemos, se ha destacado de ella su aspecto erótico en detrimento de una lectura mucho más profunda que problematiza la evasión de la memoria ... Read More

  • Delirios de interpretación: Las mitologías de la violencia de Sergio

    • Abstract: En la primera década del siglo xxi surgió en México un debate nacional sobre una supuesta crisis de violencia que según el gobierno federal afectaba ciudades enteras donde se habían consolidado diferentes modalidades del crimen organizado. Uno de los primeros precedentes de esta discusión comenzó a finales de la década de 1990 con las numerosas investigaciones periodísticas y académicas sobre los asesinatos de mujeres en la fronteriza Ciudad Juárez. Paralelamente en esos años dio inicio una mayor discusión sobre el narcotráfico en México que desbordó el imaginario popular que lo localizaba tradicionalmente en las zonas rurales del norte del país, con escasa relevancia para los grandes centros urbanos, pero que ...

Juan's eyes expressed anger and his voice was sharp, demonstrating what seemed like a deep and prolonged sense of anger, or rage, which now was finding its way to be verbalized. However, his body posture represented a person who appeared to have given up the fight, with hanging shoulders, and his eyes only meeting mine for a short moment, before they again found rest on the carpet. I leaned in, inviting him to share with me what had happened.Juan shared how he and his family had attended a birthday party of a friend, and how they had been driving home Saturday afternoon on one of the local highways. They had been chatting about the afternoon's events, and their youngest child had ... Read More

(30)Octavio Paz comes to this topic as a native speaker, of sorts, in two cultural and culinary discourses, with all the benefits signaled in the epigraphs from Sor Juana and Carpentier. Already of a philosophical turn of mind, he brings to his work the metaphorical depth and imagination of the poet, including a richly contextualized body of food metaphors. Likewise, in a number of his essays on the United States, he highlights the inherent comparative ... Read More

    • Abstract: Since its original publication in 1959, Mexican intellectual and translator Miguel León-Portilla's Visión de los vencidos – text comprised of disparate narratives dealing with the 1519 arrival of Spanish conquistadors and the subsequent fall of Tenochtitlán – has been re-edited 29 times and translated into 20 languages.1 A modern-day classic, VDLV offers an easy-to-read history of the conquest of Aztec Mexico, starting with rich descriptions of the pre-Hispanic cosmos, before recounting the fateful meeting between Moctezuma and Hernán Cortés, and concluding with the sorrowful poetry – the so-called "flor y canto" – occasioned by the fall of the Aztec empire.2 VDLV is weaved together from various sources: texts ...

  • Utopian Thinking in Verse: Temporality and Poetic Imaginary in the Poetry
           of Nicanor Parra, Mario Benedetti, and Roque Dalton
    • Abstract: In his essay "Utopía y desencanto en Hispanoamérica," Cuban historian Rafael Rojas reminds us that "desde los siglos de las disputas por el Nuevo Mundo entre los teólogos neotomistas y viajeros ilustrados, las Américas han sido lugar de representaciones utópicas y, a la vez, de caricaturas de la barbarie" (60). When thinking about utopia in relation to literature, perhaps we think of fiction, essays, and even theater, but poetry is seldom the first genre onto which utopian representation of Latin America can be imagined. In this article, I am interested in turning my attention to three poets who made an indelible mark on Latin America's poetic sphere in the 1960s and 1970s in distinct and yet related ways. I will ...

En las obras "Mi piel, luminosa" (2007)1 y Los fantasmas del masajista (2009) de Mario Bellatin, cuyo tema central es el conflicto entre el hijo y la madre, predomina el primer tipo de representaciones. En ambos textos, se despliegan fantasías del hijo que cuestionan la reconciliación con lo materno de acuerdo a lo que sería una resolución "normal" del complejo de Edipo. En la narración de esos conflictos surgen tensiones, fragmentaciones y torceduras que reflejan un yo escindido, problematizando los discursos más comunes sobre la maternidad y la ... Read More

The manuscripts of these texts are bound together, and they represent some of the earliest versions of the legend of Rodrigo and Florinda (James 4). The seventh to eleventh centuries were a period of transition in Arab culture where written communication slowly gained equal footing with oral transmissions (Sayeed 108). Earlier, oral traditions had been considered more reliable than written ones because of the value of ... Read More

Por la temática de sus obras se le ha incluido en la estela de Miguel Delibes, sobre todo en cuanto a sus retratos de la vida rural y personajes ligados a la tierra.1 El propio Pascual Pozas señala como una de sus primeras influencias al vallisoletano: "Quería escribir una novela desde el día que leí Las ratas, de Delibes" ("El viaje" 138). Al igual que en muchas de las obras de Delibes, novelas como Las voces de Candama (2002) o Espejos de humo (2005) se pueblan de diferentes voces, y forman una trama coral en la que se teje un ecosistema que ...

  • Recuperating Losses: History, Spectacle, Motility in Julio Medem's Room in
           Rome/Habitación en Roma
    • Abstract: The dominant theme throughout the oeuvre of Basque writer and film director Julio Medem is a deconstruction of identity as built through national or familial ties. To do this Medem manipulates the language of film, plotting and narrating romantic love stories in a way that reveals a subjective and individual nature of the "id" that transcends or evades definition within a national context. His 2010 production, Room in Rome, adds to this exploration with a provocative take on the presence of women in western historiography, especially questioning the role spatial constructs play in the recovering of lost histories. Room in Rome sets out with a lofty goal: to problematize women's representation in history and their ... Read More

En "To Remember or to Forget: Which Way Out of a Shared History of Violence?", Aleida Assmann alega que para que se dé una auténtica democracia en España es necesaria una nueva forma de legitimación basada en la memoria comunicativa.

Amend define a la adúltera en el teatro romántico como una metonimia tanto de la modernidad como de la tradición. ... Read More

Como respuesta a tal perspectiva, los teóricos del campo de estudios sobre la discapacidad proponen romper con los paradigmas de normalidad para crear una sociedad más inclusiva. Bajo este lente, los trece ensayos compilados en Libre Acceso buscan desentrañar la función narrativa y conocer las construcciones culturales que nacen de la representación de la discapacidad en diversos textos y obras fílmicas latinoamericanas. A lo largo del libro se ... Read More

In 1532 he was forced into exile in Italy, where he went into the service of his friend, Pedro de Toledo, the Marquis of Villafranca and viceroy of Naples. This was an important experience for Garcilaso as a writer, in that this Mediterranean setting acquainted him with new texts and ideas, and with precious objects and Roman monuments, and gave him an opportunity to interact with local scholars and ...

Brenneis examines the fiction and nonfiction of different writers to uncover how they create a dialogic encounter that surpasses traditional categorizations. The author clearly demonstrates that history and fiction share a confluence that lends itself to her novel theoretical approach, making genre fusion a means by which Hispanists can rethink the past and distance themselves from categorizations (i.e., historiography read separately ...

Este hecho indica las direcciones (para mí positivas) de los estudios humanísticos desde hace un par de décadas.La palabra clave del título aquí reseñado es "imaginario" (como sustantivo). Efectivamente, los complejos intercambios entre lo imaginario y lo real forman el eje de este estudio, específicamente según se elabora en el libro fundacional de estudios poscoloniales, Orientalismo de Edward Said (1978). De acuerdo con Said, Cerarols considera el imaginario parte de la misma civilización de la cultura ... Read More

  • La mujer moderna en los escritos de Federica Montseny by Nuria
           Cruz-Cámara (review)
    • Abstract: Este libro analiza la representación de la llamada "mujer moderna" en las narraciones de ficción y de ensayo publicadas por la intelectual anarquista Federica Mont-seny (1905-1994) entre 1923 y 1936. La mujer moderna era aquella que en las primeras décadas del siglo xx rompía con la imagen y el comportamiento femenino tradicional basado en el papel de esposa y madre abnegada. Solía representarse como una mujer independiente, con ropa andrógina y pelo corto, que practicaba deporte, fumaba y conducía. Ahora bien, como señala Cruz-Cámara, el tipo de mujer moderna que Montseny defiende en sus textos se aleja de la garçonne o la flapper por considerar a ésta frívola y comprende, en cambio, "una diversidad de ...

El presente estudio forma parte de esta tendencia crítica al examinar al niño como figura alegórica que hace posible discutir el legado dictatorial en Argentina. Al mismo tiempo, el libro de Dufays responde a un debate ligado al cine argentino en torno a cómo se relaciona el cine de los años 80 (justo después de la caída de la dictadura militar) con el llamado "nuevo cine argentino" (surgido a mediados ...

In the first essay, Fatima Antunes examines in detail the emergence of football in Brazil as a sport of masses since its introduction in the country in the 1890s. Over the decades, several historic milestones – including its first official match in 1895 and its professionalization in 1933 – contributed to ... Read More

Arguedas intentó definir concisamente la pluralidad de razas y culturas que conforman un país tan complejo como Perú. No solo lo español, lo indígena o el pensamiento occidental han conformado la identidad de la nación peruana sino que el espectro cultural peruano ha ido incorporando diversas culturas dentro de su historia. Sobre este punto, las que menos han sido estudiadas son las asiáticas, especialmente la japonesa y la china, culturas consideradas largamente minoritarias y sin un aparente aporte ... Read More

Aunque la figura de Cristo, con la que Pierrot guarda estrechas relaciones simbólicas y semánticas, ha sido magistralmente analizada por Eutimio Martín en Federico García Lorca: heterodoxo y mártir, no ha sido este el caso con la del personaje circense aun cuando éste, como sucede también con la figura bíblica, aparece reiteradamente entre las primeras identificaciones que el poeta establece desde ...
