Cultural residues : Chile in transition by Nelly Richard( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A complex portrait of postdictatorial Chile by one of that country's most incisive cultural critics, this book uses memoirs, photographs, the plastic arts, novels, and other texts--the "residues" of a culture--to analyze the political-cultural Chilean landscape in the wake of Augusto Pinochet's seventeen-year military rule. Such residual areas reveal the flaws and lapses in Chile's transition from violent military dictatorship to electoral democracy. Nelly Richard's analysis ranges from an exploration of false memories of the recent past--especially memories of violence--to a discussion of the university under neoliberalism; from debates about the use of the word "gender" to an examination of refractory texts and cultural activities such as Diamela Eltit's "testimonio" of a schizophrenic vagabond, Eugenio Dittborn's use of photography in art installations, and transvestite performances. In "Cultural Residues, each instance becomes a suggestive metaphor for understanding a rapidly modernizing Chile attempting to redemocratize its public life

Paco Ignacio Taibo II et le roman policier de la défaite de la justice à la gloire de l'énigme by Michael Collado( Book )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The crime novel is the imaginary illustration of a constant victorious justice in its fight against crime and its very relative success in Mexico proves that mexican society cannot be the gathering place of such an ideology. Nevertheless, P. I. Taibo II managed, contrary to historical logic, to reconcile the genre with the country. Through Cosa Fácil, La vida misma and Cuatro manos, an axiological jamming, better suited to collective mexican mentalities, gradually replaces crime novel manicheanism. At the same time, the enigma, following the sterilisation course of the investigation theme, disappears from plots. This phenomenon takes place when the enigmatic structure is getting more intricated. Therefore, Cuatro manos represents the defeat of the justice and the structural quintessence of the enigma. It is an attempt to litterary appropriateness and reorganisation of the destructured vision resulting from postmodern communicational abundance
