Latin Americanism by Román De la Campa( )

14 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this timely book, Roman de la Campa asks to what degree the Latin America studied in U.S. academies is actually an entity "made in the U.S.A." He argues that there is an ever-increasing gap between the political, theoretical, and financial pressures affecting the U.S. academy and Latin America's own cultural, political, and literary practices. De la Campa focuses on the conduct of Latin American literary criticism in U.S. universities and compares this with the "Latin Americanism" of Latin America itself." "By examining the translation of Latin American works into English, the careerism of U.S. intellectuals, the conduct of Latin American literary criticism in English, and the diaspora of Third World intellectuals, de la Campa offers a critique of postmodern and postcolonial constructions as articulated differently in the United States and Latin America.

"Spanning time and space from late Victorian Britain and Ireland to postwar America and Latin America, Late Imperial Culture maps crucial regions in the terrain of imperial cultural practices including theater, film, photography, fiction, autobiography, and body art. The forms reviewed in this lively collection range from those which accept and reproduce empire's dominant self-images to scathing critiques of the oppressions that colonialism has visited upon its subjects and the price it continues to exact from them

La insólita tropicalidad de la poesía argentina : Enrique Molina, Néstor Perlongher y Washington Cucurto by Giselle Román-Medina( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation, La insólita tropicalidad de la poesía argentina, identifies the ways in which major contemporary Argentine poets articulate what I call a poetics of tropicality, anchored in tropes largely present in Caribbean and Brazilian aesthetics. In it, I draw a critical framework that goes beyond the disciplinary boundaries that define North/South cultural and political relations. Specifically, I foreground the mobilization of exotic tropes in Argentina, which has historically built its national identity in contrast to the tropics in its desire to present the nation as part of the Global North. I argue that Enrique Molina, Néstor Perlongher, and Washington Cucurto reshaped the traditional meaning of tropicality, a fundamentally foreign concept to Argentina, as a means of articulating an intra-Latin American poetics that includes national subjectivities underrepresented through traditional Eurocentric channels. I examine mainly poetry--the privileged art form for such tropes--but also prose and anthropology. Through this corpus, I demonstrate that the natural properties attributed to the tropics from scientific, medical and philosophical discourses can ironically function as highly movable artifacts capable of challenging stereotypes based on geographical determinism. This poetics of tropicality--a multisensory material and intellectual experience--provides a model for rethinking Latin American diversity: not as the appearance of a radical other, but as an encounter between subtle differences
El baile de los que sobran: literatura y negatividad en el Caribe hispano by Lina Maria Martinez Hernandez( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation challenges conciliatory views of Caribbean identity and epistemology by highlighting a series of texts and authors that question celebratory approaches to racial and sexual difference. I argue that negative relationality constitutes and epistemological and aesthetic alternative to reevaluate hegemonic representations of the Caribbean, one that dwells on antagonism, excesses, and exceptions that constitute the underside of an exceptional and affirmative view of the region. To do so, I understand negativity as a three-fold approach: a philosophical critique of stable identity and totality; a claim for the autonomous production of aesthetic discourses and its sovereign intervention in the public sphere; and an emphasis on the corporeal as the embodiment of psychic and social incoherence and disobedience. This approach allows me to focus on authors and artists from Colombia, Cuba, and the Dominican Republic that not only question identity as a discursive construct, but also through the ways in which the (re)mediation of these discourses into literary, audiovisual, and artistic forms opens up spaces to think about alternative modes of relation with racial and sexual difference
Entre el caribe y la cubanidad : hacia una crítica cultural interregional by Javier Sampedro( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation proposes a comparative approach to Caribbean cultures as a self-defined constellation of diverse artistic and philosophical traditions in dialogue with one another. Through a specific critique of the Cuban discourse around national identity or cubanidad, through the works of local intellectuals and artists--Fernando Ortiz, Alejo Carpentier, Nicolás Guillén, Virgilio Piñera and Tomás G. Alea--this thesis argues that the image of the Caribbean that emerges from these voices, far from being a thematic motif or merely a historical and geographical landscape, is a projection of nationhood which challenges the imaginary boundaries of the island. This revised understanding of cubanidad shares core aspects with the idea of Caribbeanness as a position of enunciation, as illustrated in the works of major Caribbean intellectuals and writers outside the Hispanic milieu. By focusing on the intricate relationship between Cuba and the non-Hispanic insular Caribbean, the main objective of this investigation is to bring a comparative, transregional perspective to the study and criticism of the archipielago as a cultural and philosophical continuum, without rejecting the properly individual value of the national projects and nationalistic expressions
Slippery solidarity : performative complements to the national allegory by Kristen Meylor Turpin( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation studies how Spanish American novels and plays from the early 19th Century construct collective identity. Instead of focusing purely on the allegorical formulation of national identity, I identify a complementary mode of political expression that slips cosmopolitan, transnational, and colonial perspectives into nation-building discourse. Slippery Solidarity begins by characterizing the "performative" rhetorical devices that carve a space for counter-national perspectives within romanticism's predominantly national framework. In its most basic sense, "to perform" is to be reflexive about how one acts. I classify pretending, juxtaposing, and parodying as "performative" rhetorical devices because they self-reflexively display the intersection of national and counter-national perspectives. I show that, unlike allegorical texts, in which self-referentiality serves to authoritatively stabilize the concept of the "nation," performative texts employ this technique in order to destabilize and then transform various tenets of nation-building discourse. Pretending, juxtaposing, and parodying question the patriotic call to take up arms and defend a singular motherland, the state's homogenizing process of exclusion, the civilización/barbarismo dichotomy, and the narrative of national mestizaje. By combining allegorical and performative devices, José Joaquín Fernández de Lizardi, Soledad Acosta de Samper, and Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda test the complementarity of national, cosmopolitan, transnational, and post-colonial dispositions during the Independence Period. Pretending evokes the cosmopolitan critique of nationalist violence in El periquillo sarniento (1816); juxtaposing depicts the transnational romance in Una holandesa en América (1876); and parodying critiques the colonial roots of the mestizo nation in La hija de las flores, o Todos están locos (1852). This dissertation thus makes two central interventions. First, it traces the cosmopolitan and transnational dispositions that we tend to associate with modernismo and the vanguardia back to romanticismo. In doing so, it characterizes the aesthetic diversity and political complexity of the literature of this period. Secondly, this dissertation paves the way for more nuanced analyses of 19th-century Spanish American literature, ones in which national-allegorical interpretation is not the default mode, but one possible reading--among many--of the dialogue between literature and politics

Species Sadness : Race, Gender, and Animality in Twentieth-Century Mexico and Central America by Carolyn Fornoff( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

While the nonhuman has generally been disregarded as irrelevant to Mexicanist and Central Americanist scholarship on race, sexuality, gender, and politics, this project argues that thinking through the animal was a key method through which twentieth-century writers revised what ought to be considered "natural" and normative. The hypothesis that this project explores is that the animal operates as a figure that contests how the human--or a certain type of human marked by sexuality, gender, and race--has been produced and privileged by society. I argue that the turn to species intensifies during moments of ideological change. Species Sadness thus provides a framework for thinking about three periods of political turmoil in Central America and Mexico in relation to each other--rising fascism in the thirties, incipient feminism in the sixties, and the Sandinista revolution of the seventies--and argues that during moments of ideological revision, the concept of species is central. Interspecies erotics, domestic intimacy with pets, and animal vulnerability, are all unusual, yet key narrative tools to push readers to think beyond the human and define an ethics that is attentive to alterity
Teoría lírica latino americana 1492-2000 by David Barreto( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

My dissertation explores the notions lyric, poetry, modernity, and America. I argue that the idea of America after 1492 is inextricably tied to the emergence of modern lyric poetry. I challenge the tacit understanding that the value of Latin American poetry and poetics rests on the historiographical Hegelian universal spirit of poetry that places its beginnings in Latin America at the end of the 19th century only after it had emerged first in Europe and then in the United States. I analyze the image of America in relation to the heterogeneous constitution of modernity and modern subjectivity, exemplified in Descartes' dictum "I think, therefore I am." The certainty of the methodological Cartesian "I" is what modern lyric poetry seeks to undermine through the uncertainty of the lyric subject "I." I illustrate how the modern dualism of mind and body, subject and object, history and poetry, self and other, would be meaningless without the parallel conceptualization and conquest of America. My claim is that modern poetry, which is exclusively thought of as the subversive and unmediated expression of a decentered, irrational, and spontaneous lyric subject "I," evolves in opposition to the certainty that reason allegedly gives to the modern subject "I," conceivable only within the context of the violent history of the Atlantic. Chapter One, "Teoria lirica latino americana," exposes the invention of lyric poetry within the larger context of the creation of poetry within the Atlantic Circuit. Chapter Two, "Politica lirica," studies the modern creation of san Juan de la Cruz and shows how and why his image has been taken as the ideal spirit of modern poetry. Chapter Three, "Excepcion lirica," explains the relationship between modern lyric poetry and political theology in the case of Octavio Paz and Jose Angel Valente. The fourth chapter, "Borges, el habito de lo ordinario," deals with Jorge Luis Borges' poetry and poetics in the tradition of modernity. Finally, "Chantal Maillard y las formas prosaicas de habitar lo cotidiano" signals the transformation of lyric practices in what I call lyric exhaustion which can be recognized in the work of the Spaniard-Belgian poet Chantal Maillard, among others
