The vanguard of the Atlantic world : creating modernity, nation, and democracy in nineteenth-century Latin America by James E Sanders( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the nineteenth century, Latin America was home to the majority of the world's democratic republics. Many historians have dismissed these political experiments as corrupt pantomimes of governments of Western Europe and the United States. Challenging that perspective, James E. Sanders contends that Latin America in this period was a site of genuine political innovation and popular debate reflecting Latin Americans' visions of modernity. Drawing on archival sources in Mexico, Colombia, and Uruguay, Sanders traces the circulation of political discourse and democratic practice among urban elites, rural peasants, European immigrants, slaves, and freed blacks to show how and why ideas of liberty, democracy, and universalism gained widespread purchase across the region, mobilizing political consciousness and solidarity among diverse constituencies. In doing so, Sanders reframes the locus and meaning of political and cultural modernity."--Publisher's description
Images at war : Mexico from Columbus to Blade Runner (1492-2019) by Serge Gruzinski( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If colonial America was the melting pot of modernity, it was because it was also a fabulous laboratory of images ... Just as much as speech and writing, the image can be a vehicle for all sorts of power and resistance.' So writes Serge Gruzinski in the introduction to "Images at War", his striking reinterpretation of the Spanish colonisation of Mexico. Concentrating on the political meaning of an image and its function within a multicultural society, Gruzinski compares the ubiquity of the baroque image in Mexico to our more modern fascination with images and their meaning. Although it played a decisive role in many arenas, especially that of conquest and New World colonisation, the baroque image on which Gruzinski concentrates resonates most powerfully in the sphere of religion. Discussing how images conveyed meaning across linguistic barriers, Gruzinski uncovers recurring themes of false images, less-than-perfect-replicas, the uprooting of peoples and cultural memories, and the violence of iconoclastic destruction. He shows how various ethnicities - Indians, blacks, Europeans - each left their own mark on images of colonialism and religion, co-opting them into expressions of identity or instruments of rebellion. In the process, he tells of Aztec idols, the cult of the Virgin of Guadalupe, conquistadors, Franciscans, and neo-classical attempts to repress the baroque. In the final portion of the book, Gruzinski discusses the political and religious implications of contemporary imagery - such as that of Mexican soap operas - and speculates about the future of images in Latin America
The struggle for maize : campesinos, workers, and transgenic corn in the Mexican countryside by Elizabeth M Fitting( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When scientists discovered transgenes in local Mexican corn varieties in 2001, their findings intensified a debate about not only the import of genetically modified (GM) maize into Mexico but also the fate of the peasantry under neoliberal globalization. While the controversy initially focused on the extent to which gene flow from transgenic to local varieties threatens maize biodiversity, anti-GM activists emphasized the cultural significance of the crop in Mexico and demanded that campesinos and consumers have a voice in the creation of GM maize and rural policies. In The Struggle for Maize, Elizabeth Fitting explores the competing claims of the GM corn debate in relation to the livelihood struggles of small-scale maize producers, migrants, and maquiladora workers from the southern Tehuacan Valley. She argues that the region's biodiversity is affected by state policies that seek to transform campesinos into entrepreneurs and rural residents into transnational migrant labourers. While corn production and a campesino identity remain important to an older generation, younger residents have little knowledge of or interest in maize agriculture; they seek out wage labour in maquiladoras and the United States. Fitting's ethnography illustrates how agricultural producers and their families respond creatively to economic hardship and Mexico's "neoliberal corn regime," which promotes market liberalization, agricultural "efficiency," and the reduction of state services over domestic maize production and food sovereignty

[Molecular, genetic and physiological analysis of photoinhibition and photosynthetic]. Progress report, June 1991--November 1992( )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A major goal of this project is to use a combined molecular genetic, biochemical and physiological approach to understand the relationship between photosynthetic performance and the structure of the multifunctional D1 reaction center protein of Photosystem II encoded by the chloroplast psbA gene. Relative to other chloroplast proteins, turover of D1 is rapid and highly light dependent and de novo synthesis of D1 is required for a plant's recovery from short term exposure to irradiances which induce photoinhibitory damage. These observations have led to models for a damage/repair cycle of PSII involving the targeted degradation and replacement of photodamaged D1. To investigate the effects of perturbing the D1 cycle on photosynthesis and autotrophic growth under high and low irradiance, we have examined the consequences of site-specific mutations of the psbA and 16S rRNA genes affecting synthesis, maturation and function/stability of the D1 protein introduced into the chloroplast genome of wildtype strain of the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii using biolistic transformation
