  • CLOSET IMPURITIES: MISCEGENATION AND THE RACIAL CLOSET IN URBANO DUARTE
           AND ARTUR DE AZEVEDO’S O ESCRAVOCRATA

    • Authors: Lamonte Aidoo
      Pages: 16 - 39
      Abstract: : Through a close reading of Artur de Azevedo and Urbano Duarte’s 1882 play O Escravocrata [The Slaveocrat], I examine the period anxieties surrounding miscegenation between black men and white women in the wake of abolition and turn of the century European immigration. Juxtaposing Brazil and the United States, I argue that these socially prohibited relationships challenged both slavery as an institution and Brazilian racial categorization. Drawing from queer theory, I show how the progeny of these interracial relationships lived in what I term a “racial closet,” a space marked by clandestinity and precarity, and how the constitutive practice of “racial outing,” the public revelation of African heritage was a way of sustaining white supremacy and the social and political distinctions between black and white, free and enslaved. Key words: Slavery; Miscegenation; Theater; Abolition Resumo: Através de uma leitura atenta da peça teatral, O Escravocrata (1882), de Artur Azevedo e Urbano Duarte, o seguinte ensaio examina as ansiedades brancas em torno da mestiçagem entre homens negros e mulheres brancas depois da abolição e no contexto da imigração europeia para o Brasil. Por meio de uma lente crítica e comparativa entre o Brasil e os Estados Unidos, proponho que tais relações proibidas desafiaram tanto a instituição escravocrata como as estruturas nacionais de categorização racial. Partindo da teoria queer, procuro demonstrar como os frutos destas relações inter-raciais acabavam por ocupar um “armário racial” – um espaço marcado pela clandestinidade e precariedade – e como a prática de “flagramento racial,” a revelação pública de ascendência africana, funcionou como método de reproduzir as estruturas vigentes de supremacia branca e as distinções sociais e políticas entre branco e negro, livre e escravo.Palavras-chave: Escravidão; Mestiçagem; Teatro; Abolição

  • TENT OF MODERNITY: MISCEGENATION AS EPISTEMOLOGY AND TECHNOLOGY OF NATION
           IN JORGE AMADO’S TENDA DOS MILAGRES AND CONTEMPORARY BRAZILIAN VISUAL
           MEDIA

    • Authors: Daniel F. Silva
      Pages: 40 - 64
      Abstract: : Jorge Amado, through his literary works and their subsequent cinematic and television adaptations, can be considered a fundamental voice in the canonization of miscegenation and multiraciality as both narratives and mechanisms of Brazilian national identity and formation. This essay will examine his 1969 novel Tenda dos Milagres, namely the voicing of miscegenation as a field of knowledge by various characters with different racial politics. More specifically, this field of knowledge, I argue, functions in the novel as a national transhuman mechanism of engineering a modern body politic and articulating a politics of corporality – one following existing discourses and nationalist claims of a racially hybrid national modernity, and to which Amado’s protagonist, Pedro Archanjo, subscribes. In approaching miscegenation as a technology of racialized and gendered biopower, we can more neatly contextualize it within a genealogy of misrecognized discourses and cultural mechanisms of national progress/whitening including hygienism and incentivized European influx, as well as contemporary forms of corporal transformation such as cosmetic surgery and fitness culture that operate nationally via assorted and reformulated images of mixed-race bodies, specifically Amado’s canonized mulata. Keywords: Jorge Amado; Miscegenation; Modernity; Racial Democracy; Multiraciality Resumo: Jorge Amado, através da sua obra literária e as subsequentes adaptações cinematográficas, pode ser considerado uma voz fundamental na canonização de estéticas de mestiçagem e multirracialidade como narrativas e mecanismos de formação e identidade nacionais brasileiras. Este ensaio examinará o seu romance, Tenda dos Milagres (1969), particularmente a sua encenação da mestiçagem como campo de conhecimento por via de várias personagens em diferentes polos do espetro político. Mais especificamente, este campo de conhecimento, o ensaio propõe, funciona no romance como um mecanismo nacionalista trans-humano de produzir o corpo nacional [body politic] e uma política corporal que segue discursos e narrativas nacionais de uma modernidade brasileira racialmente híbrida, a qual é celebrada pelo protagonista, Pedro Archanjo. Ao abordar a mestiçagem como tecnologia de biopoder racial e de gênero, podemos, assim, contextualizar os discursos amadianos da mestiçagem dentro de uma genealogia de mecanismos culturais de “progresso” nacional e de embranquecimento que inclui o higienismo, imigração europeia promovida pelo Estado, e formas contemporâneas de transformação corporal incluíndo cirurgia plástica e fitness que operam nacionalmente através de diferentes imagens de corpos racializados, tomando, como exemplo fundamental, a figura da “mulata” – central na obra amadiana. Palavras-chave: Jorge Amado; Mestiçagem; Modernidade; Democracia Racial; Multirracialidade

           OLHAR SOBRE AS RELAÇÕES COLONIAIS

    • Authors: Sandra Sousa
      Pages: 65 - 84
      Abstract: Resumo: Inspirado no livro Colour Bar da historiadora Susan Williams sobre a relação “escandalosa” de Seretse Khama, primeiro presidente de Botswana, com a britânica Ruth Williams, este artigo debruça-se sobre os casamentos inter-raciais de Abdias do Nascimento e Amílcar Cabral com Elisa Larkin e Maria Helena, respectivamente, através de cartas e outras fontes, a fim de examinar como estas figuras centrais de movimentos anti-coloniais e/ou de justiça racial conciliaram tais relações íntimas com suas ideologias anti-hegemônicas. Questões a considerar incluem as seguintes: Como é que estas relações se enquadram dentro de narrativas de excepcionalismo racial do Brasil, do colonialismo português (de maneira a contestar ou a reproduzi-las), e do mundo lusófono mais amplo, e como estas narrativas são recordadas hoje' Representam estas relações uma forma de expurgação da culpa branca pós-colonial enquanto reproduzem uma ordem socio-racial vigente'Palavras-chave: Amílcar Cabral; Abdias do Nascimento; Relações inter-raciais coloniais e pós-imperiais; Excepcionalismo racial : Inspired by historian Susan Williams’ book Colour Bar on the “scandalous” relationship of Seretse Khama, first president of Botswana, with the British Ruth Williams, this article focuses on the inter-racial marriages of Abdias do Nascimento and Amílcar Cabral with Elisa Larkin and Maria Helena, respectively, through letters and other sources, with the purpose of examining how these main figures of anti-colonial movements and/or racial justice were able to reconcile such intimate relationships with their anti-hegemonic ideologies. The following questions are being considered: How can these relationships be perceived in the narratives’ framework of Brazilian racial exceptionalism, Portuguese colonialism (in a way to counteract or reproduce them), and the greater Lusophone world, and how these narratives are remembered today' Do these relationships represent a way of purging the post-colonial white guilt while they reproduce the social-racial order'Keywords: Amílcar Cabral; Abdias do Nascimento; Colonial, Post-imperial and inter-racial relationships; Racial exceptionalism

  • UTOPIC MASCULINITY: HUMOR, XENOPHOBIA, AND HOMOPHOBIA IN JOSÉ PAULO DE
           ARAÚJO’S “XRM-2600”

    • Authors: Rex Nielson
      Pages: 85 - 98
      Abstract: : This article examines expressions of male heterosexual identity present in José Paulo de Araújo’s 1997 award-winning short story “XRM-2600.” This story highlights growing tensions in Brazil between local and global changes in how sexuality and masculinity are constructed. In particular, the story humorously addresses and subverts manifestations of hegemonic masculinity (namely, homophobia, machismo, misogyny, and xenophobia) by foregrounding male heterosexual identity as performative rather than essentialized. While the performative nature of gender and sexuality has long been theorized by scholars such as Judith Butler and Eve Sedgwick, in the context of Brazilian literature and culture, heterosexual masculinity has rarely been viewed with the same fluidity afforded to queer identities. In the introduction to her insightful book Female Masculinity, Jack Halberstam critiques the tendency of many studies of masculinity to recenter the white male body, arguing that “masculinity becomes legible as masculinity where and when it leaves the white male middle-class body.” Reading Araújo’s story as a unique example of how masculinity becomes legible in Brazil when confronted by foreign expressions of masculinity, this paper argues for the place and value of understanding non-normative male heterosexual identity, or what might be called heterovariant masculinity, in democratic society. Key words: Contemporary Brazilian literature; Gender; Masculinity Resumo: Este artigo estuda as expressões da identidade masculina heterossexual presentes no conto premiado “XRM-2600” (1997) de José Paulo de Araújo. O conto expõe as tensões crescentes no Brasil entre mudanças locais e globais na construção da sexualidade e da masculinidade. Em particular, o conto humoristicamente aborda e subverte as manifestações da masculinidade hegemônica (inclusive, homofobia, machismo, misoginia e xenofobia) ao colocar em primeiro plano a identidade masculina heterossexual como uma identidade performativa em vez de ser essencializada. Apesar do fato de que a natureza performativa do gênero tem sido teorizada por estudiosos como Judith Butler e Eve Sedgwick, no contexto da literatura e cultura brasileira, a masculinidade heterossexual raramente é tratada com a mesma fluidez proporcionada às identidades queer. Na introdução do seu livro Female Masculinity, Jack Halberstam critica a tendência de muitos estudos sobre a masculinidade a recentralizar o corpo branco masculino, argumentando que “masculinity becomes legible as masculinity where and when it leaves the white male middle-class body”. Lendo o conto “XRM-2600” como um exemplo original de como a masculinidade torna-se legível no Brasil ao ser confrontada por expressões estrangeiras de masculinidade, este artigo defende a importância de entender uma identidade masculina e heterossexual que não seja normativa, o que pode ser chamada de uma masculinidade heterovariante, numa sociedade democrática. Palavras-chave: Literatura brasileira contemporânea; Gênero; Masculinidade

  • SPHERES OF SIMULTANEITY IN ADRIANA LISBOA’S NOVEL HANÓI

    • Authors: Marguerite Itamar Harrison
      Pages: 99 - 112
      Abstract: : This essay has as its focus the interweaving of immigrant life stories and layers of human spaces in Adriana Lisboa’s novel Hanói (2013). Relying on Ana Martins Marques’ map-bending poems from Cartografias and on Doreen Massey’s geographical concepts of “multiple trajectories” and “spheres of dynamic simultaneity” articulated in For Space, I analyze the sense of place in the novel, as well as the presence of elements denoting belonging, displacement and un-belonging, especially from the point of view of the two main characters and their interconnecting, yet disparate, worlds.Keywords: Belonging; Displacement; Spheres of simultaneity; Adriana Lisboa.Resumo: Este ensaio tem como foco o entrelaçamento de histórias na vida de imigrantes e nas camadas de espaços humanos presentes no romance Hanói de Adriana Lisboa (2013). Baseando-me nos poemas-mapas que se desdobram na série Cartografias de Ana Martins Marques e nos conceitos geográficos articulados em For Space de Doreen Massey, como “trajetórias múltiplas” e “esferas de simultaneidade dinâmica,” analiso o sentido de lugar no romance, assim como a presença de elementos que indicam pertencimento, deslocamento e não-pertencimento, especialmente do ponto de vista dos dois protagonistas e de seus mundos interligados, ainda que distintos.Palavras-chave: Pertencimento; Deslocamento; Esferas de simultaneidade; Adriana Lisboa.

  • CONTEMPORARY URBAN BRAZILIAN FICTION AND DISCOURSES OF POWER

    • Authors: Sophia Beal
      Pages: 113 - 132
      Abstract: : Nelson Vieira has deftly defended contemporary Brazilian prose that pairs sophisticated narrative techniques with pulpy disquieting themes. With relationship to various authors (Roberto Drummond, Rubem Fonseca, Samuel Rawet, Sérgio Sant’Anna, and Dalton Trevisan), Vieira has argued that their fiction—in its combination of aesthetic innovation and uncomfortable subject matter—challenges discourses of power in Brazil’s everyday reality. These discourses of power involve bourgeois society’s rigid norms, hegemonic value systems, discrimination of marginalized groups, or reductive understandings of “high art” as pure and superior to mass culture. Drawing on Vieira’s insights on Brazilian contemporary urban fiction, this article first argues that the rise of Brazilian urban fiction can be understood not only as a response to urbanization, but also as reflective of a desire to aestheticize conflicts related to place, power, storytelling, and language. Next, the article argues that the first four novels of João Almino’s Brasília quintet—with the specific backdrop of Brazil’s capital city—contrast sophisticated form and pulp themes to examine the ties between language and authority as they relate to the hypocrisy and superficiality of its elite characters. Keywords: João Almino; Nelson Vieira; Urban Brazilian fiction; Brasília Resumo: Nelson Vieira defende a prosa brasileira contemporânea que combina técnicas narrativas sofisticadas com uma temática “pulp”. Em relação a vários autores (Roberto Drummond, Rubem Fonseca, Samuel Rawet, Sérgio Sant’Anna e Dalton Trevisan), Vieira argumenta que sua ficção – ao combinar inovação estética e assuntos inquietantes – desafia os discursos de poder no cotidiano do Brasil. Tais discursos envolvem normas rígidas da sociedade burguesa, sistemas de valores hegemônicos, discriminação de grupos marginalizados ou entendimentos redutivos da “alta arte” como pura e superior à cultura de massa. Com base nos insights de Vieira sobre a ficção urbana contemporânea brasileira, este artigo primeiramente argumenta que a ascensão da ficção urbana brasileira pode ser entendida não apenas como uma resposta à urbanização, mas também como reflexo de um desejo de estetizar conflitos relacionados a lugar, poder, narrativa e língua. Em seguida, o artigo conjectura que os quatro primeiros romances do quinteto de Brasília de João Almino – com o pano de fundo específico da capital brasileira – contrastam uma estética sofisticada e uma temática “pulp” para examinar os laços entre linguagem e autoridade relacionados à hipocrisia e à superficialidade dos personagens abastados.  Palavras-chave: João Almino; Nelson Vieira; Ficção brasileira urbana; Brasília

  • O ESPECTA(U)TOR NA NARRATIVA PERFORMÁTICA DE SÉRGIO
           SANT’ANNA

    • Authors: María D. “Lolita” Villanúa
      Pages: 133 - 157
      Abstract: Resumo: Este artigo explora um dos aspectos distintivos da obra literária de Sérgio Sant’Anna. Refiro-me aos narradores (espectadores) que entram no texto como protagonistas da trama (atores) e que são profissionais da palavra escrita (autores). Para tentar caracterizá-los, proponho o termo “especta(u)tor”. Trata-se de uma transformação do termo “espectator” inventado pelo dramaturgo brasileiro Augusto Boal para nomear o espectador participativo do seu teatro. A minha adaptação aplica igualmente ao leitor ficcional ou real da narrativa metaficcional e performática de Sant’Anna que é explicitamente convidado a participar na construção da ficção e dos seus significados. O “especta(u)tor” serve para refletir sobre o processo de criação e encenação assim como sobre fatores sociais, econômicos e políticos que afetam o escritor e sua obra. A inclusão do próprio autor, permite o (auto)questionamento e a possibilidade de assumir um papel principal para confrontar o cenário literário e social. Dessa forma, se rearticulam questões culturais e sociopolíticas através da problematização da (auto)representação e da autoridade. Palavras-chave: Sérgio Sant’anna; Literatura brasileira contemporânea; Metaficcão; Performance; Augusto Boal  : This article explores one of the distinctive traits of Sérgio Sant’Anna’s literary work: narrators (spectators) who enter the text as protagonists (actors) and who also are professionals of the written word (authors). In an attempt to characterize them, I suggest the term “especta(u)tor” (“spectauthor”), a transformation of Brazilian playwright Augusto Boal’s “espectator” (“spectactor”), intended to designate the participative spectator of his theater. My adaptation also applies to both the fictional or the real reader of Sant’Anna’s metafictional and performatic literature, who are explicitly invited to participate in the construction of the fiction and its meanings. The term “especta(u)tor” enables a reflection  on the processes of creation and staging as well as on social, economic and political issues that affect the writer and his work. The insertion of the author himself allows for (self)questioning and the possibility of assuming a leading role in confronting literary and social scenarios. Cultural and socio-political issues are thus rearticulated through the problematization of (self)representation and authority. Keywords: Sérgio Sant’Anna; Contemporary Brazilian literature; Metafiction; Performance; Augusto Boal
