  • The Heart of the Mission: Latino Arts and Politics in San Francisco by
           Cary Cordova (review)

    • Abstract: Cary Cordova’s book The Heart of the Mission: Latino Arts and Politics in San Francisco showcases the evolution of the Chicano arts community in San Francisco, California, in the 1940s and 1950s into the epicenter of Latino cultural production and political mobilization from the 1960s to the present. To do this, it presents the artists who imbued el mestizaje into their work for the purpose of reclaiming their multiethnic heritage and inspiring resistance to European and North American hegemony. The text also tells a compelling story. By the late 1960s, the Latino struggle for visibility in the Mission District became inextricably linked to the civil rights movement in the US and also to the student movements and ... Read More

  • Mexican Costumbrismo: Race, Society, and Identity in Nineteenth-Century
           Art by Mey-Yen Moriuchi (review)

    • Abstract: Instead of embracing costumbrismo as a traditional Mexican art form and adaptation that celebrates the authentic cultural representations of daily Mexican life during the latter part of the nineteenth century, Mey-Yen Moriuchi demonstrates that a vast number of Mexican costumbrista paintings were actually fortifying and reimagining established colonial and racial social constructions rooted in casta paintings (2). Many of the colorful paintings analyzed in Moriuchi’s handsome cover and text on Mexican costumbrismo are customarily thought to be truthful depictions of the various regional peoples, customs, attire, and lifestyle. In fact, since their introduction, Mexican society has for the most part trusted these ... Read More

  • Hollywood in Havana: US Cinema and Revolutionary Nationalism in Cuba
           before 1959 by Megan Feeney (review)

    • Abstract: Speaking from Little Havana, President Donald Trump drew criticism in 2017 when he reinstated previous sanctions that reversed former president Barack Obama and then Cuban president Raúl Castro’s previous attempts to ease restrictions and restore Cuban-US relations. The speech recalled many to previous Cold War policies and limited ways of seeing Cuba. In Hollywood in Havana, Megan Feeney goes beyond the narrow scope of Fidel Castro, retracing Hollywood’s impact on revolutionary Cuban nationalism “through broad sociopolitical trends and film business practices” (7). The book provides a comprehensive approach to pre–Cuban Revolution relations between Cuba and the United States as seen through economic, political ... Read More

  • ¡Destape! Sex, Democracy, and Freedom in Post dictatorial Argentina by
           Natalia Milanesio (review)

    • Abstract: La interdisciplinaria investigación de Natalia Milanesio es crucial para aproximarse a la comprensión de la hipersexualización mediática en una sociedad tan tradicional o circunspecta como la argentina. La estudiosa analiza detalladamente el uso del destape mediático como una forma de discutir los abusos ocurridos durante la dictadura militar. Si bien su trabajo ayuda a estudiar el desarrollo histórico de este proceso, el objetivo de Milanesio es principalmente mostrar el efecto catártico de este discurso alternativo y los cambios sociopolíticos que conlleva. Ya que este destape promueve el diá-logo sobre la sexualidad y acelera el cambio discreto que se venía gestando discretamente.¡Destape! Sex, Democracy, and ... Read More

  • Zombies as Temporal Critique: Sudor frío (2010) and Generations of Youth
           in Postdictatorship Argentina

    • Abstract: Sudor frío (Cold Sweat, 2010; directed by Adrián García Bogliano) was the first Argentine horror film to be released on public screens in more than three decades. Its modest commercial success—appearing on thirty-six screens throughout Argentina during its opening weekend in February 2011 and going on to earn roughly double its production costs in box-office sales, according to the Internet Movie Database—along with the growing size and importance of the annual Buenos Aires international horror film festival Rojo Sangre, points to the increasing popularity of the horror genre among younger generations of Argentines, nearly all of whom were born after the real-life horrors of the country’s latest military ...

  • “Golpe, não!”: Twenty-First-Century Brazilian Songs of

    • Abstract: The year 1959 is commonly referred to as marking the beginning of bossa nova. An innovation in Brazilian Popular Music, bossa nova proposed a style that was contained in its instrumentation, its conversational singing, its presence on stage, and its happy and light themes. Epitomized by the image of “um banquinho e um violão” (a little stool and a guitar), bossa nova opposed the operatic singing of the popular samba-canção of the time, boldly changing the course of Brazilian Popular Music.1Nevertheless, the style was perceived as quite tame in its relationship to social reality, which, for many singers and songwriters of the time, it should not have been. While bossa nova songs portrayed the quiet and comfortable ... Read More

  • Cuerpo, memoria y empatía: Procesos de creación colectiva en torno a la
           figura de Violeta Parra

    • Abstract: In contemporary dance, or more generally in performing arts, working together over the course of a period of time is essential, because joint creativity is the basic condition of any kind of theatre processes.Nuestro acercamiento a la cultura popular chilena se produce como consecuencia de la irresistible fascinación ejercida por la música, la poesía, la artesanía y creación plástica de Violeta Parra. A partir de sus canciones—primer material de contacto—, el conjunto de su obra nos fue trasvasando lenta pero irremediablemente, impregnando nuestros sentidos. En el caso del proyecto que nos ocupa, el carácter plural, híbrido, indigenista y popular de sus creaciones (Dillon 2018) fue, de alguna manera, el ... Read More

  • Ex-voto: Folk, Outsider, Transnational—Debating Definitions

    • Abstract: In a blue room, a family is celebrating Christmas. Only a few items are there: decorations, presents, a Christmas tree, and a sofa. Another prominent presence inhabits this room: joy. The joy of being reunited, the “miracle of being with them,” as we learn by the votive inscription below the image (fig. 1). A miracle, then: the work of divine intervention, according to the faithful. Faith, in fact, is represented by the Virgin of Guadalupe watching over the family, with her hands clasped in prayer. “I went to USA as illegal immigrant to work. I missed my family so much, and I asked the Virgin of Guadalupe for a miracle to be with them. A few years later, I finally came back, at the height of the December holidays ... Read More

  • Gendered Figure Lighting, Artifice, and Realism in Rosaura a las diez

    • Abstract: This article examines how, in Rosaura a las diez (Mario Soffici, 1958)—made as the Argentine studio system production model was in a crisis that would prove terminal—the productive tension between classical conventions of genre and gendered figure lighting is used to visually enact a shift in the representation of the title character from an object of male gazes to a socially situated woman migrant who inhabits the social margins of the complex and dangerous modernity of midcentury Buenos Aires.Rosaura a las diez is a filmic adaptation of the 1955 novel by Marco Denevi, in which multiple characters focalize retellings of a story, resulting in certain events being narrated several times.1 This type of plot ...

  • Víctor Gaviria’s Mujer del animal and the Banality of Violence
           against Women

    • Abstract: Del maltrato de género no surge un relato placentero.The unsettling saying “Laws, like women, were made to be violated” (las leyes como las mujeres, se hicieron para violarlas) circulates insidiously in Colombia and elsewhere in the Hispanic world, rearing its ugly head, causing scandals, and ending political careers.2 The equation it creates between laws and women insinuates jokingly that violence is acceptable; after all, laws, arbitrary by definition, originate from imperfect governments, thus defying them may be welcome, if not laudable. Extending this thought onto the female gender is alarming, to say the least, when the rates of femicide are raging in Colombia despite raised public awareness and active ... Read More

  • Contigo en la distancia: Colombia, Galicia y el negocio narco entre la
           realidad y la ficción; entre el humor y el dramatismo

    • Abstract: El sentido trágico de la vida española solo puede darse con una estética sistemáticamente deformada.El narco latinoamericano ha llegado para quedarse. Y tiene cara de español”, lo decía Carlos Mejía en un artículo publicado en el diario El País, el 2 de octubre de 2019, para subrayar la cada vez mayor presencia de actores españoles en producciones cinematográficas y televisivas americanas, y cuyo papel se reduce a narcotraficantes latinoamericanos. Pues, la serie Narcos, que, tristemente, catapultó a Pablo Escobar a la esfera de la cultura popular mundial, en su tercera temporada, personajes como el del Contador del Cartel de Cali, el presidente de Colombia Samper o el hijo de un empresario colombiano con negocios ...

  • La realidad que triunfa sobre la forma: La novela negra en Mario Mendoza,
           Lady Masacre

    • Abstract: La novela negra, con gran número de sus variantes y derivados, en las últimas décadas no solo constituye gran parte del mercado editorial en los países hispanoamericanos (igual como en otras partes del mundo) y ha trascendido los marcos de un género menor, percibido como uno de poca calidad artística y dirigido a un público menos exigente, sino también ha asumido el papel de una nueva novela social, retratando y diagnosticando las sociedades (post)modernas desde sus vicios, deficiencias y perturbaciones. En la trayectoria del género negro se suele distinguir entre la novela detectivesca tradicional (whodunit), su modalidad anglosajona de hard-boiled y la denominada nueva novela policial (neopolicial ...

  • White Subjectivity and Black Nationalism in José Muñoz and Carlos
           Sampayo’s Alack Sinner Comic “Vietblues” (1975)

    • Abstract: In Harlem, a white private detective befriends an African American Vietnam veteran whose friends are Black nationalists intent on overthrowing white supremacy. The detective wants to contribute to the struggle out of friendship and loyalty, and because he too sees himself as an outsider and a rebel. One of the Black nationalists challenges him, however: “This got nothin’ to do with you, whitey. Nothin’. You’re just guilty white liberals, attacking the symptoms, not the disease.”1 This exchange illustrates a key conflict at the center of Jesus Muñoz and Carlos Sampayo’s “Vietblues” (1975), a comic belonging to the critically acclaimed Alack Sinner series published between 1974 and 2010. In the comic, Muñoz and ... Read More

  • The Supernatural Sublime: The Wondrous Ineffability of the Everyday in
           Films from Mexico and Spain by Raúl Rodríguez-Hernández and Claudia
           Schaefer (review)

    • Abstract: Readers and aficionados of gothic, horror, and science fiction recently commemorated the bicentennial of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein in 2018. Intrigued but not surprised by the renewed interest in Shelley’s work, Raúl Rodríguez-Hernández and Claudia Schaefer explore the (un)expected in Mexican and Spanish gothic and horror films produced from the late 1960s to the present. Although films in these genres are often considered too commercial and therefore unworthy of serious academic inquiry, such films remain understudied in the Spanish-speaking world. Rodríguez-Hernández and Schaefer’s text is a crucial step to remedy the lack of attention that such films merit.This critical study provides a concise and engaging ... Read More

  • Comics and Memory in Latin America ed. by Jorge Catalá Carrasco, Paulo
           Drinot and James Scorer (review)

    • Abstract: La popularidad a nivel mundial de películas basadas en superhéroes ha llevado al mundo académico a interesarse por el estudio de los cómics que sirvieron de inspiración a dichos filmes. Hoy en día es muy común en universidades en los Estados Unidos ver cursos dedicados a la producción artística tanto de Marvel y DC y su impacto, no sólo en un plano literario, pero a nivel de la cultura popular global. No es de extrañarse que durante los últimos diez años la cantidad de libros y artículos académicos haya proliferado.Lamentablemente, en el mundo hispano, se ha visto al género como algo de menor importancia. Si bien es cierto que ya para 1985 Harold E. Hinds publica su artículo “Kalimán, Mexico’s Most Popular ... Read More

  • Thinking about Music from Latin America: Issues and Questions ed. by Juan
           Pablo González (review)

    • Abstract: Noting the interdisciplinary field of musicology, the book’s discourse centers on the renewal and rearticulation of the field based on scholarly dialogue of the mid-1980s by tracing the origins of critical discussions in Latin American musicology as they first emerged in the 1930s. The book’s initial publication in Chile and Argentina in 2013, as well as its publication in Brazil in 2016, was favorably reviewed by Latin American presses and academic journals; the book’s translation to English marks the globalized discussion with its Western origins by framing Latin America in continental, hemispheric lens influenced by americanismo, inter-Americanism, and Latin American studies. The book’s content—influenced by a ... Read More
