  • Remaking Brazil: Contested National Identities in Contemporary Brazilian
           Cinema by Tatiana Signorelli Heise (review)
    • Abstract: Suppose we begin with a simple question. How can the much greater box office success of the film 2 filhos de Francisco within Brazil (as opposed to the greater success of Cidade de Deus outside Brazil) be accounted for? Tatiana Signorelli Heise’s solid, well-researched book does not begin with this question. Nor would she ever pose it quite so bluntly; at most she might be content with the banality that the very existence of two such wildly different films demonstrates the “diversity” of Brazilian cinema in recent decades. Instead, Heise’s interest is in providing historical background for this diversity, classifying it, and demonstrating how all recent films contribute in some way to the enduring questions of ...

  • Raising the Flag: The Early Years of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Trans
           Press in Brazil, 1963–1981
    • Abstract: The lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans (LGBT) movement is now an international political and social movement. National movements have taken inspiration and strength from other countries’ responses, above all that of the United States, which exercised an unequalled cultural hegemony from the late 1960s until the 1980s and beyond. LGBT movements across the world have much in common, but at the same time, each responds to local political, social, and cultural conditions and events. In Brazil, the years of gay liberation for the rest of the world coincided with the worst years of repression by the hard-line element of the military dictatorship, the “anos de chumbo” (the leaden years) (1969–1975), when contestatory ...

  • Intoxicated Writing: Onda Writers and the Drug Experience in 1960s Mexico
    • Abstract: In the late 1960s, as the Latin American Boom masters exported magic realist narratives to the international literary market, young Mexican Onda writers, such as José Agustín and Parménides García Saldaña, imported the international counterculture into their writing in an attempt to question the paradigms of self, representation, and language. Among the signifiers that codified the 1960s counterculture, the drug experience, along with rock music, opened possibilities for social and literary experimentation. Critics such as Margo Glantz and Carlos Monsiváis have written about the emergence of rock music and drugs in the works of Onda writers. However, while Glantz’s work (1979) clearly establishes the influence of ... Read More

  • Under the Spell of Populism: Popular Culture and Intellectuals in Brazil
    • Abstract: Those who, by what is essentially an abuse of power, feel they have the right or make it their duty to speak for the people, that is, in its favor, but also in its place …, are still speaking for themselves; or, at least, they are still speaking about themselves, in that they are thus trying, in the best cases … to allay the suffering caused by social separation by becoming members of the people in their imaginations.Pierre Bourdieu’s statement rests on the premise that, for the possessors of cultural authority, speaking about the “popular” usually involves an illusion of otherness and a politically dubious will to speak on behalf of “the people” who, from their viewpoint, lack intelligence, aesthetic sensibility ...

  • Subversive Instruments: Protest and Politics of MPB and the Nueva
    • Abstract: On April 27, 1973, a document from the Brazilian federal police’s division of censorship of public entertainment (DCPD) warns of “the existence of an organization carefully put together in order to develop, in each country, the promotion of the protest song” (n.p.).1 Citing an article from the Argentine magazine Esquiu, the memo suggests that this organization operated strategically out of Havana since the first gathering of protest music organized by the Casa de las Américas in 1967. The report associates words like blood, struggle, flower, bread, war, and persecution with protest songs. The magazine article and censorship report consider that the political importance of protest music resides in its lyrical ... Read More

  • Autenticidad y alienación: Disonancias ideológico-culturales
           entre la “nueva canción” chilena y el rock
    • Abstract: La polarización ideológica que caracterizó al período de la Guerra Fría (1945–1989) influyó no sólo en las relaciones políticas internacionales, sino que tuvo un efecto directo en el compromiso social y las opciones estéticas de artistas y activistas culturales que, sobre todo durante la década de 1960, participaron activamente en procesos integrales de descolonización para la amplia región latinoamericana.1 Lo anterior llevó a dichos actores a desconfiar de todos aquellos artefactos simbólico-culturales producidos en los centros industriales-capitalistas. En tal contexto, el rock anglo-americano fue percibido por los artistas de la “nueva canción” chilena (NCCH) como atentando en contra de la creación y ... Read More

  • Amistades apasionadas: Reflexiones en torno a las representaciones
           masculinas presentes en la película argentina Soñar, soñar,
           de Leonardo Favio
    • Abstract: El objetivo de este trabajo es analizar las representaciones masculinas presentes en la película de 1976, Soñar, soñar, de Leonardo Favio. Esta propuesta lleva el análisis a abordar otro tipo de fuentes complementarias, como son la revista Pelo y la revista Primera plana. Creo que el filme comparte con estas publicaciones estilos masculinos novedosos que desafiaban ciertas pautas tradicionales de masculinidad en el marco de un formato narrativo melodramático alterado. Para empezar, con respecto a los estilos, diremos que el filme presenta en pantalla estilos diversos como el del hombre moderno, que reforzaba valores tales como el éxito en los negocios y una formalidad al vestir, y el del joven artista que ...

  • Un pájaro progresivo: Pop Music, Propaganda, and the Struggle for
           Modernity in Argentina
    • Abstract: —Tal vez mis palabras te hayan parecido egoístas; pero piensa que era mi honor el que estaba en peligro. Los hombres no sabemos dar la honra por amor.—Las mujeres sí; ése es nuestro orgullo.In early 1976, long-haired rock musician Charly García tried not to go out of his apartment more than necessary. In the previous few years, government paramilitary had been targeting social and political liberals for repression, and in March another military coup would be declared. The atmosphere of the time is hard to imagine: pedestrians nervously shared the streets with army tanks. García lived in fear of being grabbed off the sidewalk, and his friends called him paranoid because he sometimes wore a disguise to go out.1 ... Read More

  • El santo de la espada: Building Nationhood through Film
    • Abstract: Beginning in 1969, deteriorating economic conditions and political unrest weakened the Argentine Revolution established by General Juan Carlos Onganía in 1966. In May 1969, during el Cordobazo, politicized youth and unionized workers vigorously protested against the government. The economy was also impacted by political developments and vice versa: Onganía’s reluctance to accept changes in his regime slowly eroded his position as an overseer of the different—and sometimes opposing—sectors. At the same time, new social actors, such as leftist urban guerrillas, along with the traditional players—trade unions and political parties—were active on the national stage, demanding nationalist and anti-imperialist policies ...

  • Popular Culture, Politics, and Alternative Gender Imaginaries in 1960s and
           1970s Argentina
    • Abstract: In 1964, during the short-lived democratic presidency of Arturo Illía, out of the pages of the Argentine weekly Primera plana emerged a fictional little girl called Mafalda. The creation of an Argentine male cartoonist known by the pen name of Quino,1 Mafalda is said to have brilliantly encapsulated the 1960s aspirations of a “progressive, antiauthoritarian and well-informed middle class” (Sasturain n.p.). David William Foster (1980, 1989, 1998), one of the few English-speaking authors to have studied this comic as a cultural product, opined that its legendary social critique did not, however, go far enough to constitute a challenge to the status quo. From Foster’s perspective, Quino’s creation merely expressed a ... Read More

  • Editors’ Preface
    • Abstract: Around the world, the mid-1960s to the mid-1970s were years of intense political confrontations shaped by the Cold War. The United States faced the antagonism of the Soviet Union and became more involved in Vietnam. Domestically, Lyndon B. Johnson implemented his Great Society plan, which aimed to combat socioeconomic inequalities, and the civil rights movement worked to end discrimination against African Americans. As the editors of Social Text summed it up in The 60s without Apology,the 60s is merely the name we give to a disruption of late capitalism ideological and political hegemony, to a disruption of the bourgeois dreams of unproblematic production, of everyday life as the bureaucratic society of controlled ...

  • Charytín Goyco, la rubia de América: A Case Study of Television
           Stardom in the Dominican Republic in the 1970s
    • Abstract: Charytín Goyco, born in 1949, began her career as a singer, actress, and television personality in the Dominican Republic in the mid-1960s and pursued it further as a talk show hostess in Puerto Rico and then Miami, retiring in the 1990s to raise a family. At the end of the 1990s she returned to the television scene. She continues to be a popular and recognizable figure on Spanish-language television. My essay is concerned with her rise to fame in the Dominican context. I contend that Charytín’s stardom was conditioned by the political and social media framework that emerged in the Dominican Republic under the presidential administration of Joaquín Balaguer (1906–2002). Goyco has many facets to her career, from ... Read More

  • “En el vórtice de la enajenación”: Nicolás
           Guillén Landrián y la implosión del documental
           científico-popular cubano de los 60
    • Abstract: No tengo conflictos estéticos con ninguno de mis filmes. Todos los conflictos estéticos son resultado de los conflictos conceptuales. Yo quería ser un intérprete de la realidad. Siempre estuve en el vórtice de la enajenación. El resultado cabal es cada filme terminado.Cineasta, artista, poeta, locutor radial y, tras su caída en desgracia, albañil, guarda parques y barrendero, Nicolás Guillén Landrián (n. Camagüey, 1938; f. Miami, 2003) fue durante décadas el cineasta maldito del Instituto Cubano del Arte e Industria Cinematográficos (ICAIC). A pesar de haber realizado algunos de los cortometrajes más innovadores de la historia del instituto, su vida y su obra, silenciadas por la historia oficial, estuvieron ... Read More

  • Hispanic Folk Music of New Mexico and the Southwest: A Self-Portrait of a
           People by John Donald Robb (review)
    • Abstract: This extensive volume is a compilation of transcribed folk music drawn in large part from the northern New Mexico region, but includes versions of folk songs from Mexico, Spain, and the American Southwest. As such the songs date from the Spain of pre-Conquest days through the twentieth century. It is a re-release of a collection first published in 1980 of various folk songs collected by John Donald Robb over a thirty-five-year period as he traveled from town to town throughout northern New Mexico, diligently recording the folk songs sung by myriad local and regional singers. To access the songs he recorded, one can now go online to the website of the Center for Southwest Research at the University of New Mexico’s ... Read More

  • Brazilian Women’s Filmmaking: From Dictatorship to Democracy by
           Leslie L. Marsh (review)
    • Abstract: Leslie L. Marsh opens the introduction to Brazilian Women’s Filmmaking: From Dictatorship to Democracy by recalling the inauguration of Brazil’s first woman president, Dilma Rousseff, who took office January 1, 2011. This opening is relevant in the context of her discussion of Brazilian women’s work with film in Brazil and the obstacles and difficulties women have faced in their struggles to be part of the artistic and political scene in Brazil in the last five decades. As Marsh writes, President Rousseff has supported women in all areas of public life, bringing “attention to women’s contributions to the arts” (2) and giving “a nod to the increasing number of women in the Brazilian film industry, setting aside a ...

  • Shaping the Motherhood of Indigenous Mexico by Vania Smith-Oka (review)
    • Abstract: Importantly, Smith-Oka immediately discloses her Mexican nationality and middle-class background, adding legitimacy to the study. Amatlán’s inhabitants perceive her as an outsider even though she embodies the qualities of mexicanidad Mexican public policy promotes in rural villages. Mexicanidad embraces a cultural mestizo heritage, while also espousing Western ideals of modernity. However, Smith-Oka clarifies that this unifying national identity is an “illusion” if one accounts for Mexico’s culturally diverse populations. Amatlán, situated in northern Veracruz’s sparsely populated Huasteca region, exists, physically and culturally, in the periphery, and its remoteness contributes to romantic or exotic depictions ...

  • Jesus and the Gang: Youth Violence and Christianity in Urban Honduras by
           Jon Wolseth (review)
    • Abstract: With criminal activity and personal physical insecurity a ubiquitous certainty throughout Honduras, gangs and God are the main avenues for combatting these realities and claiming social space for urban male youth, according to Jon Wolseth. Writing of this population, the author notes, “Not only must they witness the murder of their peers, they also live everyday their own social death of not being able to rise above their station in life” (136). Young men and women are socially, politically, and economically marginalized; they struggle daily to claim physical and theoretical space in their communities in order to survive. In Jesus and the Gang: Youth Violence and Christianity in Urban Honduras, Wolseth illuminates ... Read More

  • Contemporary Latin America: 1970 to the Present by Robert H. Holden and
           Rina Villars (review)
    • Abstract: Contemporary Latin America: 1970 to the Present analiza los precedentes de los radicales cambios sociales, políticos y económicos que se vienen produciendo en América Latina desde la década del 70. El contextualizado enfoque histórico es muy novedoso, ya que pone en la ecuación elementos generalmente olvidados. El análisis de Holden y Villars toma en cuenta el gran peso de la cultura popular y la diversa configuración étnica en el delineamiento de la identidad nacional, los efectos residuales del caudillismo y la represión, la pérdida de poder de la iglesia católica en las naciones más industrializadas y los resultantes cambios siderales de los valores sociales que se suman a la permanente lucha latinoamericana ...

  • Tango Nuevo by Carolyn Merritt (review)
    • Abstract: En Tango Nuevo, Carolyn Merritt busca delimitar y analizar qué se entiende justamente por tango nuevo, un término controvertido y polémico que pone de manifiesto la evolución de la danza y los cambios que se vienen sucediendo desde los años noventa tanto en Argentina como a nivel internacional. Su caracterización no está exenta de las tensiones discursivas propias de un fenómeno artístico, sociocultural y económico multifacético. Bajo la rúbrica tango nuevo, se organizan una constelación de fenómenos diversos: las investigaciones de Gustavo Naveira y Fabián Salas que crearon una nueva pedagogía para la enseñanza del tango, el ingreso de jóvenes bailarines formados en otras disciplinas, la emergencia de nuevos ...

  • Adoptive Migration: Raising Latinos in Spain by Jessaca B. Leinaweaver
    • Abstract: In this fascinating book, Leinaweaver sets out to study international migration to Spain in the context of its conflicting discourses about immigration. Her analysis focuses on Peruvian adoptees and immigrants, an area that Leinaweaver is well familiar with, and one that represents a high percentage of both immigrants and international adoptees in Spain. If the diversification of Spanish society brought about by immigration has been amply discussed and publicized, the growth of international adoption in Spain had failed to receive the same amount of critical attention. The numbers of international adoptions represent less than 1 percent of the annual births in Spain, but it is significant that in the period between ... Read More

  • Culture of Class: Radio and Cinema in the Making of a Divided Argentina,
           1920–1946 by Matthew B. Karush (review)
    • Abstract: In this engaging cultural history, Matthew B. Karush examines the development of two important media during the two-and-a-half decades prior to the advent of Peronism. The development of radio and cinema in other Latin American countries has attracted the interest of many historians and investigators of popular culture. While it has become a truism to assert that media exerts a great influence on national politics, rarely has there been a study such as this one, which elaborates on the interrelation so thoroughly and utilizes such a varied selection of resources, not simply national archives and standard primary sources but also the lyrics of popular tango and folk songs, film comedies and melodramas, radio ...

  • Alcohol in Latin America: A Social and Cultural History ed. by Gretchen
           Pierce and Áurea Toxqui (review)
    • Abstract: The book is a collection of ten articles divided into three thematic sections and with four introductions. The first introduction presents the project as a whole, and its length is comparable to the articles; the other three introductions are brief and explain what each section is trying to accomplish. The first section deals with alcohol in the prehispanic and colonial periods, the second with the nineteenth century (1820s to 1930), and the last with the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.The book does not pretend to give a linear or quasi-linear historical account of alcohol-related themes but rather presents the reader with ten aspects (one per article) that are representative of the above-mentioned periods.In ...
