  • Friday Night Fighter: Gaspar “Indio” Ortega and the Golden Age of
           Television Boxing by Troy Rondinone (review)
    • Abstract: In the entertaining history Friday Night Fighter, Troy Rondinone writes about the rise and fall of televised boxing in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Even more compelling, however, is that the author gives readers the biography of the legendary Mexican welterweight, Gaspar “Indio” Ortega, who appeared in more televised bouts than any other fighter except Dick Tiger. While Rondinone’s description of the greatest era of boxing and its infiltration by organized crime does not break much new ground, his careful research, interviews, and friendship with Ortega nevertheless provide sports historians and boxing fans with an indispensible book.Rondinone’s enthusiasm for boxing is obvious from the beginning. His interest ... Read More

  • Brazil in the Twenty-First-Century Popular Media: Culture, Politics, and
           Nationalism on the World Stage ed. by Naomi Pueo Wood (review)
    • Abstract: Through ten well-researched chapters distributed in three parts, Brazil in the Twenty-First Century Popular Media offers a much-needed analysis of the many ways in which Brazil and Brazilians appear as producers and products of popular discourse. In the first and introductory chapter, the editor explains how the book aims at discussing old stereotypes and reevaluating them in the context of the twenty-first century with its myriad channels. She emphasizes that most of the chapters attempt to articulate two likely opposing points of view: for instance, how Brazilians depict themselves and how they are perceived by foreigners, or how favelas are described in the media and the reality of favela life as described by ...

  • Criollismo, política y etnicidad en las ideas y el folklore de Eusebio
           Dojorti (Buenaventura Luna)
    • Abstract: Las élites que construyeron la nación argentina, lo hicieron postulando que ella se encarnaba en un pueblo blanco-europeo. A fines del siglo XIX los habitantes de origen amerindio y africano fueron declarados extintos o reconocidos como un mínimo residuo del pasado en vías de desaparición. Las narrativas oficiales que dieron consistencia a una identidad nacional se construyeron, de ese modo, alrededor de la idea de que el famoso “crisol de razas” había dado como resultado una “raza argentina” que era perfectamente blanca. Como el grueso del influjo inmigratorio que llegó por entonces de Europa se radicó en Buenos Aires y el litoral, zonas que también se vieron beneficiadas por el modelo agroexportador que se puso ...

  • Murga as Mobilization: Cultural Resistance to Neoliberalism in Buenos
           Aires
    • Abstract: Over the past twenty years of neoliberal restructuring in Argentina,1 a pervasive climate of inseguridad (insecurity) has emerged in the metropolis of Buenos Aires. Increases in crime rates, in combination with the “the talk of crime” in mass media reports and in everyday conversation, have triggered collective fears of the street (Caldeira 2). Moreover, dominant discourses of inseguridad have intertwined with a neoliberal logic of privatization to create new patterns of spatial segregation, urban fragmentation, and private socialization behind fences, walls, and bolted doors. These shifts in the landscape of Buenos Aires have, in turn, undermined feelings of cohesion and belonging in neighborhoods, so that ... Read More

  • New Technologies, Old Nationalities: Mexico’s Digital Labyrinth in
           Marina Castañeda’s Amores virtuales
    • Abstract: In his acceptance speech for the 1990 Nobel Peace Prize in Literature, titled “La búsqueda del presente,” Mexican writer Octavio Paz proposed that “los españoles encontraron en México no sólo una geografía sino una historia. Esa historia está viva todavía: no es un pasado sino un presente” (Paz “Nobel”). Six years later, in 1996, Mexican anthropologist Guillermo Bonfil Batalla, in his study Mexico profundo: Reclaiming a Civilization, similarly argues that a compelling interpretation of the contemporary Mexican national character can be elaborated only via a reencounter with Mexico’s deep indigenous past. Paz and Bonfil Batalla are but two emblematic cases of a long line of Mexican intellectuals who, to understand ... Read More

  • Sacrifice, Faith, Mestizo Identity: Three Views of Che’s “New
           Man”
    • Abstract: Che Guevara had only a few hours to live. He was being held by the Bolivian army in a mud-walled schoolhouse in the highlands village of La Higuera. He was filthy, his long hair matted, looking like “a wild beast.” Julia Cortez, the twenty-two-year-old teacher of the classroom in which the wounded Che waited, brought him some peanut soup, and they talked. “How could a man of your physique and intelligence get yourself in such a situation?” Cortez asked him. “It’s for my ideals,” Guevara responded.“Do you have a wife? Children?” After he affirmed that he did, she followed up: “And your family? What do they say?” “My ideals come first.”Thirty years after Che was shot, in an interview for The Bolivian Diary, Cortez’s ... Read More

  • Paisajes, territorios y lugares: La imaginación de las fronteras en
           El baño del Papa
    • Abstract: La película El baño del Papa (Charlone y Fernández, 2007) narra la visita del Papa Juan Pablo II realizada en el año 1988 a Melo, un pequeño pueblo uruguayo que se ubica muy cerca de la frontera con el sur de Brasil. Este film construye en su relato una representación imaginaria de las relaciones articuladas en torno de la frontera entre Brasil y Uruguay. Se trata de una comedia ácida que muestra, con un registro semidocumental y una pulsión realista, la dinámica de las interacciones comerciales, sociales y culturales que se establecen en la frontera internacional, una película pequeña, que para algunos resultaba “demasiado uruguaya” para funcionar en las pantallas grandes por fuera del Uruguay. Sin embargo, El ... Read More

  • Natureza e ambiente na literatura de cordel brasileira
    • Abstract: Neste artigo, iluminado pela teoria e pela metodologia da ecocrítica, procuraremos mostrar que a matriz científica e racionalista em que nos inscrevemos e inscrevemos as nossas crianças pode ser complementada e enriquecida com a leitura de textos da literatura de cordel brasileira. Na origem desta literatura, que chegava ao Brasil desde Portugal, está a produção europeia de livrinhos populares a que, em Portugal, se dá formalmente o nome de “literatura de cordel” pelo menos desde 6 de Junho de 1865, data da publicação, no Jornal do Comércio, do artigo “Literatura de cordel”, de Teófilo Braga, e que constitui, nas palavras do autor em 1881, “a primeira tentativa para este trabalho” (62). Diz-se de “cordel” porque os ... Read More

  • ¿La fiesta de todos o pocos?: Representaciones fílmicas del Mundial
           ‘78 de la Argentina
    • Abstract: Desde el período fascista de Hitler, en el que Alemania fue la sede de los Juegos Olímpicos de 1936, hasta la reciente organización de la Copa Mundial de la FIFA Brasil 2014 por el gobierno de Dilma Rousseff, el deporte ha servido como un elemento útil para los políticos, así favoreciendo sus propios intereses y ganando la opinión pública (Galeano 71, 244). En Argentina, durante el Proceso de Reorganización Nacional (1976–83), General Jorge Rafael Videla igualmente aprovechó esa técnica al manejar el Mundial de la FIFA 1978. Mientras miles de personas desparecían bajo el mando de su junta militar, el presidente intentó equivaler el éxito del evento internacional y la victoria de la Selección Argentina con la unión ...

  • Food, Memory, and a Starving Dentist: Jesús Díaz’s Special
           Period in Times of Peace
    • Abstract: Food is in style. And in reality, it has always been significant; it is the foundation of society and of every economy. Food traditions are endlessly evolving and serve as markers of social differences, boundaries, and family and community relationships (Counihan and Van Esterik 1). As Carlnita Greene and Janet Cramer explain, the “food explosion” has made an undeniable appearance in popular culture and academics over the past few decades. From the reality TV show featuring Jaime Oliver’s exploration of American public school lunchrooms to the vast amount of studies in the fields of anthropology, sociology, and cultural history, the obsession with food and how it relates to our nutrition, diet, cultural and ...

  • Tango and Cumbia villera: Origins, Encounters, and Tensions
    • Abstract: In the Argentine context, artistic expression is closely related to the migration phenomenon (Pujol 99) and, to a great extent, to political circumstances that fuel artistic creativity. It is well known that the socioeconomic conditions of the nineteenth century attracted European immigrants, and the birth of tango, a unique local genre, is a sign of those times. What is less well known is that the financial pressure of the 1990s and 2000s also produced a countereffect, although this one was quite distinct from the one shaped by the economic flourishing of the nineteenth century. From the new socioeconomic conditions, the result of the financial system collapse, emerged cumbia villera, a musical subgenre ... Read More

  • De Electrodomésticos a Los Prisioneros: La música electrónica, el pop y
           la crítica del “milagro chileno”
    • Abstract: En los años setenta el programa socialista de Salvador Allende utilizó activamente la música para promover su mensaje. Músicos de la corriente chilena de la canción de protesta—Nueva Canción—, como Víctor Jara, Ángel e Isabel Parra y grupos como Inti-Illimani y Quilapayún se convirtieron en embajadores de las ideas políticas de Allende. La Nueva Canción chilena fue un movimiento artístico tan íntimamente asociado a la Unidad Popular, que los militares consideraron su extinción un asunto de primera necesidad. Como parte del intento de Pinochet de erradicar todos los rastros del socialismo, aquellos músicos que habían gozado del apoyo del gobierno fueron asesinados (Jara), exiliados (Inti-Illimani y Quilapayún) o ...

  • Centro del Margen: Crónica de un día en un estudio de grabación
           clandestino de música rap en Buenos Aires
    • Abstract: Esta etnografía presenta una crónica de veinticuatro horas en El Triángulo Estudio, un local de grabación clandestino de música rap en la periferia urbana de Buenos Aires. El estudio se considera clandestino porque existe en un lugar en el cual no se registran viviendas ni comercios por los mapas oficiales de la municipalidad, y porque sus integrantes sobreviven de una economía informal. Centro del Margen presenta cómo es que a través de la articulación artística, jóvenes que habitan este “no lugar” generan un sentido de comunidad y una sobrevivencia fiscal del capital simbólico que rinden por producir música rap. Narrando escenas de la vida cotidiana en El Triángulo Estudio, su barrio, y sus protagonistas, se ... Read More

  • Cutting Cárdenas: Revising the Revolutionary Family in 1980s Mexico
    • Abstract: Each weekday evening for half an hour, from March to October 1987, and again during a rebroadcast the following year, audiences witnessed the melodramatic translation of one of Mexico’s most significant historical periods—the 1910 Revolution—into a telenovela titled Senda de gloria (Path of Glory).1 The “path” in the title refers to the turbulent succession of presidents, starting with the promulgation of the 1917 constitution and culminating in the triumph of President Lázaro Cárdenas’s nationalization of oil in 1938, commonly viewed as the most radical phase of the Revolution. Furthermore, the telenovela traces the genealogy of the Partido Revolucionario Institucional (PRI), the party in power for much of the ... Read More

  • Modern Argentine Masculinities ed. by Carolina Rocha (review)
    • Abstract: Modern Argentine Masculinities is a discreet interrogation of the distinctive yet disparate impressions, incongruities, and permutations of the conception of Argentine masculinity from the nineteenth century to the early twenty-first century. The book is inter- and multidisciplinary in its approach interrogating the question of what it means to be a “man” at various points in Argentine history. The book is a furtherance of and elaboration on Rocha’s Masculinities in Contemporary Argentine Popular Cinema. The essays are written with film, comparative literature, history, theater, and popular music as their frame of reference. The contributions congregate adequately on the theoretical vantage point proposed and ... Read More

  • La Habana: Cartografías culturales by Raúl Rubio (review)
    • Abstract: La Habana: Cartografías culturales examina la fascinación internacional con Cuba y todo lo cubano durante el siglo pasado y, en especial, la representación de la ciudad de La Habana no solo como espacio cartográfico, sino también como empresa estética y metáfora de la nación. La urbe caribeña, a la que Rubio se refiere como una “musa mítica”, se ha convertido en “el mejor ámbito panorámico para el espectáculo perpetuo de las representaciones identitarias, políticas y estéticas sobre Cuba” (11). Mediante el análisis de diversas representaciones de La Habana en la literatura, el cine y la cultura popular, el autor ofrece una atractiva reflexión sobre el pasado y el presente de la ciudad, así como una visión de su ...
