Critical terms in Caribbean and Latin American thought : historical and institutional trajectories by Yolanda Martínez-San Miguel( )

14 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is a collection of critical essays on twelve keywords central in Latin American and Caribbean Studies: indigenismo, Americanism, colonialism, criollismo, race, transculturation, modernity, nation, gender, sexuality, testimonio, and popular culture. Each one of these keywords is conceived in conversation with a broader cluster of terms The central question motivating our work is how can we think--epistemologically and pedagogically--about Latin American Studies as a field that has taken different historical and institutional trajectories across the Caribbean, Latin America, and the United States. Each keyword is presented in the anthology through a lead essay that reflects on a notion in conversation with other terms that are either derived, related, or posed as potential responses, subversions, or interrogations of the original keyword. The response essays supplement the lead essay by exploring the debate from a different disciplinary perspective or field (including discussions in Latin American, American, Caribbean, Ethnic and Latino, and Women and Gender Studies), or exploring an angle or aspect of the concept that was not necessarily discussed in the lead essay. The lead essay and response format encourages further debate around each specific term, highlighting North-South, South-South and South-North approaches to each critical term"--
From lack to excess : "minor" readings of Latin American colonial discourse by Yolanda Martínez-San Miguel( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From Lack to Excess analyzes the narrative and rhetorical structures of Latin American colonial texts by establishing a dialogue with studies on minority discourse, minor literatures, and postcolonial theory. After reviewing the main contributions and limitations of Transatlantic, Early Modern, and Postcolonial studies for the interpretation of Latin American colonial textualities, Martinez-San Miguel takes as a point of departure the subtle yet pervasive semantic link between the terms "minority" and "colonialism" prevalent in current studies on ethnic and sexual identities. She then engages the disciplinary debate between Colonial Latin American studies and Early Modern, Transatlantic, and Postcolonial studies, paying attention to the epistemic and institutional junctures that explain the current reconfiguration of these fields." "As an alternative to an exhausted debate, Martinez-San Miguel uses Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari's notion of a "minor literature," along with current studies on minority discourse to propose new close readings of texts by Hernan Cortes, Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca, the Inca Garcilaso de la Vega, Carlos de Siguenza y Gongora, and Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz. From Lack to Excess traces a discursive voyage that configures a linguistic matrix from the initial lack of language to the excessive Baroque representation of American reality."--BOOK JACKET
Coloniality of diasporas : rethinking intra-colonial migrations in a Pan-Caribbean context by Yolanda Martínez-San Miguel( Book )

12 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Coloniality of Diasporas reinterprets migrations within former or current colonial circuits as central to the articulation of Anglo, French and Spanish Caribbean narratives from the seventeenth century to the present. Focusing on piracy in the seventeenth century, filibustering in the nineteenth century, intracolonial migrations in the 1930s, metropolitan racializations in the 1950s and 1960s, and feminist redefinitions of creolization and sexile from the 1940s to the 1990s, this book redefines the Caribbean beyond the postcolonial debate

Colonial assemblages : objects, territories, and racialized subjects in pre-independence Latin America (1492-1810) by Raquel Albarrán( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation examines the centrality of objects and material culture in the invention of the New World. Paying heed to understudied connections between historically contingent texts and their transatlantic contexts, it excavates the role of colonial objects in shaping colonial discourse during the first three centuries of Spain's rule in Mexico, Peru, and the Hispanic Caribbean (1492-1810). In order to uncover the "makedness" of colonial racializing schemas, "Colonial Assemblages" traces the emergence of a material discourse invested in the Indian as a trope and a figure that masks the multiple tensions operating simultaneously in colonial representations since at least the 1500s, but that reached new heights during the Hispanic Enlightenment. Chapter 1 studies the emergence of a dialectic, multistable concept and material entity, the New World object, in Christopher Columbus's Diario del primer viaje (c. 1493). The second chapter analyzes representations of colonial gold as a fetish of early modern imperialism and as a foundational materiality of colonial Latin American discourse in texts by Columbus, Hernán Cortés, Bartolomé de Las Casas, and engravings by Theodor De Bry. Chapter 3 argues that the cartographic grid and the space of the traza foreground a discourse of abstraction enacted by colonial objects and commodities that serve to exclude the "ugly Indian" in Bernardo de Balbuena's Grandeza mexicana (1604). The fourth chapter demonstrates how certain objects were linked to Andean and transatlantic notions of space and territoriality, and to the definition of indio and mestizo identities, in the works of Guaman Poma de Ayala and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega respectively. Finally, chapter 5 studies the racial portraits of New Spain as well as historical accounts and treatises by Carlos Sigüenza y Góngora and Antonio de León y Gama to illustrate how material culture becomes a contested site of representation for criollismo. This new focus on the textual and social life of objects charts an alternative path to present critiques of coloniality presuming the homogeneous expansion of lettered culture by further underscoring the conceptual value of material culture as a powerful agent in the dynamic assemblage of colonialism in the New World

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
