"Bringing together contributions from top specialists in Hispanic studies - both Peninsular and Latin American - this volume explores a variety of critical issues related to the historical, political, and ideological configuration of the field. Dealing with Hispanism in both Latin America and the United States, the book's multidisciplinary essays range from historical studies of the hegemonic status of Castillian language in Spain and America to the analysis of otherness and the uses of memory and oblivion in various nationalist discourses on both sides of the Atlantic"
Coloniality at large : Latin America and the postcolonial debate by Mabel Moraña( Book )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Postcolonial theory has developed mainly in the U.S. academy, and it has focused chiefly on nineteenth-century and twentieth-century colonization and decolonization processes in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and the Caribbean. Colonialism in Latin America originated centuries earlier. It differs from later manifestations of European expansionism in other ways as well. This book brings together reflections on the theoretical implications of colonialism in Latin America. By pointing out its particular characteristics, the contributors highlight some of the philosophical and ideological blind spots of contemporary postcolonial theory as they offer a thorough analysis of that theory's applicability to Latin America's past and present"--Publisher's description

El monstruo como máquina de guerra by Mabel Moraña( )

20 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 'The Monster as War Machine,' European monster tradition intersects with American mass-media production and new philosophical approaches to examine topics of community, political power, alternative representations of race and gender, identity, hybridity, political agency, and collective subjectivity. In this book, cultural theory, close readings of literary texts, and interpretations of visual materials come together, covering a wide and diversified cultural territory. Some of the authors included in this study are Agamben, Badiou, Baudrillard, Deleuze, Esposito, Foucault, Freud, Haraway, Hardt, Kristeva, Marx, Negri, and Ziẽk, whose works illuminate the disruptive and at times emancipatory role of monstrosity as a representation of excess, instinct, evil, truth, and rebelliousness. This book is an important resource for those studying film, contemporary literature, and popular culture" --

16 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in Spanish and English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"El tema del afecto y las emociones ha emergido como uno de los nuevos cuadrantes interpretativos de la literatura, la cultura y la sociedad. Este libro convoca a un selecto grupo de académicos y críticos culturales para el análisis del 'giro afectivo' en América Latina. Sus ensayos ofrecen una reflexión sobre los múltiples espacios de operación del 'lenguaje de las emociones', desde la narrativa, el cine y la poesía hasta la estética musical, el discurso político y la dinámica del consumo. Se estudia así el afecto como vehículo epistémico alternativo a la racionalidad instrumental, como rasgo distintivo de la modernidad y como desafío y suplemento de la productividad capitalista."
Rethinking intellectuals in Latin America by Mabel Moraña( Book )

18 editions published in 2010 in 3 languages and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Latin America's political and cultural upheavals in recent years are in large measure attributable to a flourishing renaissance of knowledge production and innovation - intellectual, cultural, literary, grassroots, and artistic projects that have exploded from a multiplicity of social settings and in new media, new movements, and new political expressions. Rethinking Intellectuals in Latin America captures these unfolding processes and cultural politics through a comparative lens examining both historical precursors and contemporary dynamics. Prominent Latin American and Latin Americanist scholars and activists engage here key themes of transformation and the paradoxes of ambiguity and uncertainty, the dilemmas and challenges presented by durable structures of inequality and coloniality, and the intense, sometimes violent struggles to redefine the future in this key world region. This work offers an inter-disciplinary tour de force, combining perspectives from history, literature, anthropology, linguistics, politics, and law, and will be an indispensable source for those who want to capture - in all of its plural complexity - the past and the future of cultural and intellectual shifts transforming the Americas."--Publisher's description

This book provides a groundbreaking analysis of the most prominent writers of contemporary Peru, in which literary works and cultural performances are illuminated through the categories and propositions of postcolonial theory.
