  • A History of Boxing in Mexico: Masculinity, Modernity and Nationalism by
           Stephen D. Allen (review)

    • Abstract: In this cultural history, Stephen D. Allen examines the careers of five legendary Mexican boxers: Rodolfo Casanova, Raúl Macías, Vicente Saldívar, Rubén Olivares, and José Nápoles. Beyond discussing their accomplishments in the ring, Allen explains how their biographies, careers, and personal behavior reflected popular conceptions of masculinity, modernity, and nationalism in the late twentieth century. To a greater extent than other public figures, boxers encouraged their countrymen "to tell tales of Mexican greatness when they performed admirably … and stories of Mexican stability when their performances … coalesced with mainstream notions of Mexican masculinity" (12). The success of these five pugilists against ... Read More

  • Narcotransmisiones: Neoliberalismo e hiperconsumo en la era del #narcopop
           ed. by Danilo Santos et al. (review)

    • Abstract: Prologado por Élmer Mendoza y coordinado por Danilo Santos, Ainhoa Vásquez e Ingrid Urgelles—académicos chilenos dedicados al estudio del narcotráfico en Latinoamérica desde el área de los estudios literarios—, Narcotransmisiones reúne los trabajos de diecinueve investigadores que, desde sus distintas disciplinas, piensan el fenómeno de la narcocultura, presentan nuevos enfoques y ponen en tensión nociones ya instauradas por la crítica. El libro se divide en tres secciones que abordan: a) reflexiones teóricas sobre el narcotráfico y las producciones culturales que surgen de él; b) acercamientos críticos a la narcoliteratura profundizando en la representación literaria de la violencia, las víctimas, los victimarios ...

  • Cultural Nationalism and Ethnic Music in Latin America ed. by William H.
           Beezley (review)

    • Abstract: The edited collection presents a broad overview of cultural nationalism by examining how it was initially forged in Latin America, noting both foreign and native influences in shaping the ethnic musical and cultural production of specific countries. Spanning twelve chapters, the book homes in on case studies regarding Mexico, Guatemala, Cuba, El Salvador, Ecuador, Argentina, Brazil, and Bolivia; their respective ethnic-cultural influences are noted by sociohistorical processes, cultural campaigns, and social movements tied specifically to these countries. The ethnic diversity of these nations' musical origins is traced back to the colonial history of the Americas and distinguishes the various indigenous, African ... Read More

  • In Search of the Sacred Book: Religion and the Contemporary Latin American
           Novel by Aníbal González (review)

    • Abstract: Despite more than three centuries of colonization coupled with a Catholic ascendancy in nearly every ideological facet of Latin America, some scholarly works tend to overlook the lingering effects and inherent presence of Christianity in nineteenth- and twentieth-century Latin American literature. As understandable as this inattention is, due to the countless destructive ramifications brought about by Western monarchies and contemporary secularization, Latin American authors still continued and continue to have direct and indirect religious exchanges and debates in their narrative productions. In Search of the Sacred Book by Aníbal González is a delightful and pioneering study that recognizes the significance of ... Read More

  • Portraits in the Andes: Photography and Agency 1900–1950 by Jorge
           Coronado (review)

    • Abstract: Through a comprehensive analysis of the sociocultural practice of southern Andean studio portraiture, Jorge Coronado explores the implications of photographed indigenous and mestizos agents from the first half of the twentieth century (10). Utilizing an amalgamation of untitled transnational photographs from collections, museums and archives, located in cities such as La Paz, Cuzco, Huancavelica, and Huancayo, the overarching objective of Portraits in the Andes is to highlight the likely cultural discourse between photography and the lettered elite narrative. Many of the lower- to middle-class portraits examined in this study are ungoverned and were not included in the photographic projects of aristocrats ... Read More

  • "Times of Extreme Broadcasting": Argentine Socialism and Mass Culture
           during the Rise of Commercial Radio (1920–1945)

    • Abstract: The need to translate a complex system of ideas into something practical was one of the most difficult challenges of the Second International socialisms (1889–1916). The task was necessary, though, in order to enable the proletariat to take on the ideology as its own. Educational actions and dissemination were at the center of the strategies developed by political forces linked to socialism worldwide. The future society these forces struggled for was unthinkable without the commitment and active participation of the working class and "the people." On many occasions, this led different socialist leaders to see media and different expressions of mass culture like radio and cinema as enemies to their task of ... Read More

  • "Cuando yo quiera has de volver": Configuraciones de masculinidad y
           feminidad en las canciones de Juan Gabriel para Rocío Dúrcal

    • Abstract: Juan Gabriel (1950–2016) es un fenómeno único e irrepetible del cancionero popular latinoamericano. Como compositor e intérprete incursionó en varios géneros, desde la ranchera hasta la salsa. Logró reconocimiento a nivel nacional e internacional, siendo declarado como "Leyenda latina" por la revista Billboard en 1999 y obteniendo los premios "Guirnalda de Oro" y "Excelencia Universal" por parte del Rey de España en 2006. Conjuntamente, obtuvo innumerables discos de oro, platino y diamante, y ha sido una de las pocas celebridades mexicanas en obtener una estrella en el paseo de la fama de Hollywood.Además de su exitosa carrera como cantante, Juan Gabriel también tuvo una prolífica participación en la composición de ...

  • Body as Text: Challenging Marginalized Identities through Literary
           Performance in Contemporary Brazilian Saraus

    • Abstract: The transparent physicality of the body is a complex, nuanced interplay of social and cultural forces. The body is at once a highly local reflection, interacting in the here and now via face-to-face interactions. It is also equally generalizable as a mediator across cultures and physical space, having the capacity to transmit values, orientations, and functions across diverse social fields that are themselves inscribed and produced through the body. In the past decade, beginning in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, literary saraus have become spaces that reconceptualize public relationships to literature through bodily performances of living language that is dynamic and assessable. Saraus build consciousness and allow ... Read More

  • Old Gringo y la frontera fílmica de Carlos Fuentes

    • Abstract: En 1989 Carlos Fuentes tuvo su primer y único debut en Hollywood de la mano del director Luis Puenzo con la adaptación de su best seller, Gringo viejo (1985),1 la cual, más allá de ser un intento por enaltecer el folclor de la Revolución Mexicana, tiende a entorpecer el devenir de la adaptación cinematográfica de la narrativa latinoamericana en el mainstream hollywoodense, en especial con aquellos alineados al boom. No obstante, a partir de dicha adaptación comienza una especie de internacionalización que Carlos Fuentes cultivó desde los años ochenta y que venía labrando desde muy temprana edad. De igual manera, como es sabido, la relación de Fuentes con el cine y el folclor mexicano es algo que se encuentra ... Read More

           histórica en un contexto transcultural

    • Abstract: La inminencia de dos fechas significativas que se rememoran en 2021, los quinientos años de la caída de Tenochtitlan (1521) y el bicentenario de la independencia de México (1821), pueden haber llevado a la polémica petición del presidente Andrés Manuel López Obrador (2019), consignada en respectivas cartas al Papa Francisco y al Estado español, de solicitar que la Iglesia Católica y España se disculpen por los abusos cometidos contra los pueblos indígenas durante el encuentro Europa-América (Lafuente y Corona). Fue una solicitud que conmocionó ambos lados del Atlántico. Numerosos historiadores, escritores, antropólogos, políticos, periodistas se pronunciaron a favor o en contra, no necesariamente respondiendo a sus ... Read More

  • Suspenso en el noticiero: Representación de la guerrilla en Canal 10,
           Córdoba, Argentina, 1970–1977

    • Abstract: Este artículo analiza la articulación del suspenso en la representación de la guerrilla en el noticiero de Canal 10 perteneciente a la Universidad Nacional de Córdoba en el auge de la Guerra Fría y específicamente durante el período entre 1970 y 1977, que comprende los movimientos populares que llevan al reemplazo del general Juan Carlos Onganía por parte del general Marcelo Levingston y de este a su vez por el general Alejandro Lanusse, a las elecciones de 1973, al tercer gobierno del general Juan Perón, al golpe de estado cívico-militar-eclesiástico de 1976, y a la primera marcha de Madres de Plaza de Mayo en 1977.1 Preanunciando la persecución generalizada del golpe de Estado de 1976–1983, la estética del ...

  • La perpetuación de la problemática racial con el uso del romance
           interracial como intertexto metafórico entre la novela Sab y la
           telenovela La esclava blanca

    • Abstract: En las últimas décadas las telenovelas latinoamericanas no solo han logrado reemplazar a las series estadounidenses en la franja familiar dentro de sus países de origen, sino que se han vuelto productos de exportación muy lucrativos para las compañías que las producen. Como han señalado Jesús Martín-Barbero y Nora Mazziotti, coexisten dos movimientos en la comercialización de estas telenovelas: por una parte, los espectadores necesitan reconocer los elementos típicos que estos asocian con sus países y a la vez estos elementos necesitan ser "neutralizados" para convertir la telenovela en un producto con el cual espectadores transnacionales también se puedan identificar ("Memory" 282–83; Mazziotti La industria, 28). ...

  • The Tyrannical Mother in Mexican Telenovelas

    • Abstract: In its 2007 edition Studies in Latin American Popular Culture published my first article on the representation of maternity in telenovelas: "The Good and Bad Women of Telenovelas: How to Tell Them Apart Using a Simple Maternity Test." In that project I examine the characterization of the good and bad women, las buenas and las malas, of telenovelas vis-à-vis their relationship with motherhood. For those at all familiar with the glorification of maternity in Mexican culture and cultural expressions, it will come as no surprise that in those productions las buenas desire to be mothers above all else. Once the dream of motherhood is fulfilled, they view their purpose in life as that of being an ideal mother. By ... Read More

  • El juego de la vida, o cómo Televisa imaginó la pasión femenina por el
           futbol mexicano

    • Abstract: Lorena, protagonista de la telenovela El juego de la vida (2001–2002), confiesa en uno de los capítulos finales de la serie: "estoy convencida, chavas. Nací para el futbol y para Juan Carlos … sí, sí, es que no saben cuando estamos jugando me siento como fuera del mundo, sin broncas, sin preocupaciones, solo quiero jugar, y jugar, y jugar y jugar … [y cuando estoy con Juan Carlos] ¡Ay! pues me pasa igual. Me pasa lo mismo. Pienso como que se detiene el tiempo, que no hay nada alrededor nuestro" ("El juego … cap 100 part 2", 5:06–33).1 Con estas palabras, Lorena sella su doble pasión por Juan Carlos y por el futbol y así la telenovela de Televisa redefine las normas del género melodramático hasta lograr lo ...

  • Una historia temprana del crimen organizado en los corridos de Ciudad
           Juárez by Juan Carlos Ramírez-Pimienta (review)

    • Abstract: Atres sexenios de haber detonado la llamada "guerra contra el narco" en México, el investigador Juan Carlos Ramírez-Pimienta presenta un estudio interdisciplinario de indagación hemerográfica con parangones reflexiones sobre la violencia actual. En este marco, el autor presenta un vital eslabón de la historia delictiva entre el bandolerismo fronterizo del siglo XIX y el crimen organizado contemporáneo. Siempre respaldando su trabajo a partir de una arqueología de las tragedias cantadas para reconstruir la historia no oficial del pueblo, Ramírez-Pimienta ancla esta vez su estudio en dos corridos no preservados en la memoria popular: "La Piedrera" (1928) y "El corrido del hampa" (1935). Ambos muestras fueron ... Read More
