Introduction: Highways Of The South, Daniel R. Quiles

Artl@s Bulletin

This introduction serves as a brief overview of this guest-edited issue of Artl@s Bulletin, which is dedicated to international networks in modern and contemporary Latin American art. Following a brief synopsis of the history of the field’s methodologies related to circulation, the articles that appear in this issue are summarized and compared. The author argues that a network- or circulation-based focus invariably incorporates heterogenous, even oppositional criteria.


Contrabienal: Latin American Art, Politics And Identity In New York, 1969-1971, Aimé Iglesias Lukin 2015 Department of Art History, Rutgers University

Contrabienal: Latin American Art, Politics And Identity In New York, 1969-1971, Aimé Iglesias Lukin

Artl@s Bulletin

This article focuses on a community of Latin American artists living in New York and the influence of regionalism and politics in their identification as a group, taking up the case of the Contrabienal, an art book published in 1971 as a call to boycott the XI São Paulo Biennial in protest of censorship and torture in dictatorial Brazil. The book was aesthetically eclectic and included artists from different generations. Still, its organizers were all part of the strong shift towards Conceptualism then taking place. In light of the current revision of the Latin American Conceptualism canon, this article analyzes ...

Vida Americana, 1919-1921. Redes Conceptuales En Torno A Un Proyecto Trans-Continental De Vanguardia, Natalia De La Rosa

Artl@s Bulletin

Este artículo analiza los orígenes cosmopolitas de la revista Vida-Americana, organizada en 1921 por el pintor mexicano David Alfaro Siqueiros. Se reflexiona sobre el concepto de universalismo y clasicismo artístico señalando las conexiones que Siqueiros tuvo en Barcelona con Joan Salvat-Papasseit, Joaquín Torres-García, Rafael Barradas, Diego Rivera, Marius de Zayas y Élie Faure. El estudio explica la alternativa que Siqueiros señaló para el desarrollo de nuevos centros de producción artística en América. El estudio presenta la unificación continental que el artista ideó desde la reflexión del impacto tecnológico en la modernidad, tomando como base la realización del dibujo Retrato del ...

Diseño De Un Curso De Español Para Principiantes Basado En Los Principios De Call, Kerwin A. Livingstone

Kerwin A. Livingstone

Este trabajo pretende hacer hincapié en que la metodología de CALL, mediante los Módulos de Desarrollo, Implementación y Evaluación, debe explorarse aún más con motivos de presentarles experiencias educativas significativas a los estudiantes de lenguas extranjeras. Se postula, debido al aumento en el uso de aplicaciones multimediales para otros campos de estudio, que la utilidad de esta nueva tecnología para la didáctica de lenguas puede lograr grandes alcances, promocionando así la enseñanza-aprendizaje diversificada. Se intenta mostrar el diseño de un software docente-educativo basado en la metodología de CALL que centra su atención, principalmente, en la expresión oral, una de las ...

The Coca Plant And Bolivian Identity, Matthew G. Russo 2015 Bowling Green State University

The Coca Plant And Bolivian Identity, Matthew G. Russo

International ResearchScape Journal

ABSTRACT

The political battle rages between the U.S. government, the U.N. and the Bolivian President, Evo Morales, about his efforts to protect, legalize and preserve the symbol of the Andean indigenous identity: the coca plant. The human rights of indigenous populations are being violated by culturally insensitive governments in compliance with U.S. and U.N. law. The questions posed are: Is coca cocaine? What are the economic benefits of the production of coca and who benefits? What is the relationship between coca and Bolivian identity? What would be the impact in the global community if coca is ...


The Welfare Crisis Of Central America, David Stoesz 2015 Hood College

The Welfare Crisis Of Central America, David Stoesz

The Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare

The crisis of Central America, fundamentally due to social injustice, is exacerbated as the Reagan administration seeks a "military polution" to political problems of the region. A humane approach to alleviating the devastating poverty of Central America necessitates reconciling two strategies of national development: a techno-economic strategy and a sociopolitical strategy. Both strategies leave important issues unresolved. The prospect of improving conditions for the people of Central America-diminishes as the region is increasingly militarized.

Latino Catholicism And Indigenous Heritage As A Subfield Of Latino Studies: A Critical Evaluation Of New Approaches, Elizabeth C. Martinez Ph.D. 2014 DePaul University

Latino Catholicism And Indigenous Heritage As A Subfield Of Latino Studies: A Critical Evaluation Of New Approaches, Elizabeth C. Martinez Ph.D.

Cultural Encounters, Conflicts, and Resolutions

Posed through critical theory on "third-space," and a brief history of Latin American Studies, this article pursues analysis of recent interdisciplinary scholarship in English, to delineate the emergence of a new subfield in Latina/o Catholicism, connected to greater understanding of Indigenous legacy. The article also demonstrates the path of study toward creation of a themed academic issue.


Reflections On Chilean Literary Criticism: Enrique Lihn And Roberto Bolaño Challenge José Miguel Ibáñez Langlois, Elizabeth L. Hochberg 2014 Princeton University

Reflections On Chilean Literary Criticism: Enrique Lihn And Roberto Bolaño Challenge José Miguel Ibáñez Langlois, Elizabeth L. Hochberg

Dissidences

This article examines the ways in which writings by both Enrique Lihn and Roberto Bolaño enter into dialogue with the Chilean critical icon José Miguel Ibáñez Langlois. I argue that Lihn’s essay Sobre el antiestructuralismo de José Miguel Ibáñez Langlois (1983) and Bolaño’s novel Nocturno de Chile (2000) attempt to subvert the cultural dominance of Ibáñez Langlois through complex representations and interpretations of his theoretical relationship to language and silence. Keeping in mind Bolaño’s own admiration of Lihn, this article seeks to consider the ways in which Lihn’s polemic with Ibáñez Langlois during Pinochet's dictatorship ...


Is Catalan Separatism A Progressive Cause?, Edgar Illas 2014 Indiana University - Bloomington

Is Catalan Separatism A Progressive Cause?, Edgar Illas

Dissidences

This paper argues that the Left has not developed a theory for singular events such as Catalan separatism. Instead of conceiving it as a mere nationalist construct and rejecting it on behalf of federalism or universalism, I propose to focus on the transformative energies of this political and cultural movement. After tracing the historical links between separatism and radical leftist politics, my paper aims to extract three lessons from the project to build a new Catalan state: first, the possibility of formulating a right to vote based on residence and not on citizenship; second, the project to devise a non-culturalist ...


Perversión E Historia En “El Niño Proletario” De Osvaldo Lamborghini, Ofelia Ros 2014 Instituto Caro y Cuervo, Colombia

Perversión E Historia En “El Niño Proletario” De Osvaldo Lamborghini, Ofelia Ros

Dissidences

El cuento “El niño proletario” del argentino Osvaldo Lamborghini (1940-1985) fue publicado póstumamente en Novelas y cuentos al cuidado de César Aira. En él tres niños burgueses torturan y matan a un niño proletario en una fiesta de sangre, crimen y goce que interpela a toda una época. Su narrativa articula la antigua tradición de la sátira en una aguda crítica de la historia argentina contemporánea. Desde un enfoque que combina el psicoanálisis freudiano y lacaniano con un análisis histórico marxista, analizo cómo el cuento cuestiona con su parodia satírica, por un lado, la fantasía perversa que estructura la sociedad ...


La Bestia Insular. Lezama Lima Y La Revolución, Alejandro Sanchez Lopera, Oscar Barragan Martínez 2014 University of Pittsburgh - Main Campus

La Bestia Insular. Lezama Lima Y La Revolución, Alejandro Sanchez Lopera, Oscar Barragan Martínez

Dissidences

Este artículo presenta un análisis inmanente de la perspectiva de Lezama Lima, a partir de dos tópicos: la soberanía y el sujeto. Postula que los textos de Lezama forman un archipiélago desprendido del continente, que tiende a la creación de mundos posibles y no a su simple descripción o juicio moralista. Asimismo, a partir de sus textos se presenta un re-valoración de la experiencia de la revolución. Para ello, utiliza la genealogía de la moral de Friedrich Nietzsche y la pragmática de Gilles Deleuze.


Vindicating The Femme Fatale In Manuel Antín’S 'Circe', Daria Cohen 2014 Rider University

Vindicating The Femme Fatale In Manuel Antín’S 'Circe', Daria Cohen

Dissidences

Vindicating the Femme Fatale in Manuel Antín’s Circe

The present article analyzes a classic Argentine film noir, Circe, to explore its representation of a powerful, autonomous female protagonist ahead of the historical moment of 1964. The director Manuel Antín creates a film adaptation that departs from the source text by Julio Cortázar by focalizing the motivations and actions of a female character that flouts societal expectations and mores. The article is theoretically grounded in feminist, subjectivity and film adaptation theory. The article contributes to the fields of Latin American Studies, Global Film and Media Studies, Argentine Cultural and Literary ...


Creating A Space For Love And Revolution: The Poetry Of Otto René Castillo, Kerri A. Muñoz 2014 Auburn University

Creating A Space For Love And Revolution: The Poetry Of Otto René Castillo, Kerri A. Muñoz

Dissidences

In the poetry of Otto René Castillo, the theme of community is resounding and it manifests itself in the Socialist Revolution. This paper studies how Castillo conveyed his vision of said Revolution, that is to say, of how Guatemala fit into his vision of a new worldwide order. The study begins by placing Castillo’s poetry in its artistic context and outlining his agenda that advocated that words be supported by actions. Next, a brief biography demonstrates how the poet-revolutionary lived out his agenda by committing himself to the military struggles of the Revolution. Then starts the literary analysis of ...


El Espectro De Antígona, Emmanuel Velayos 2014 New York University

El Espectro De Antígona, Emmanuel Velayos

Dissidences

A partir de una reflexión teórica que integra la filosofía ética de Emmanuel Levinas con ciertas inflexiones del pensamiento psicoanalítico, este ensayo articula la categoría de “el espectro de Antígona” para comentar una adaptación peruana de la Antígona sofoclea, escrita por José Watanabe y puesta en escena por el grupo Yuyachkani. Pero, lejos de limitarse a aplicar categorías teóricas a una determinada práctica estética; este texto establece un diálogo fructífero entre la filosofía, el psicoanálisis y la dimensión ética históricamente situada de un experimento estético reciente, todo esto con el objetivo de encontrar en los testimonios y en el texto ...


Fear, Estrangement And The Sublime Moment In Hugo Santiago’S Invasión (Argentina, 1969)., Yvonne F. Cornejo 2014 University of Leicester

Fear, Estrangement And The Sublime Moment In Hugo Santiago’S Invasión (Argentina, 1969)., Yvonne F. Cornejo

Alambique: Revista académica de ciencia ficción y fantasia / Jornal acadêmico de ficção científica e fantasía

This paper examines how the sublime aesthetic combines with science fiction tropes to articulate estrangement and dislocation in Hugo Santiago’s film Invasión (Argentina, 1969). The dystopian tones, alienating landscape and unstoppable invaders featured in the film resonate with Burke’s negative sublime, while a Kantian approach to Invasión provides grounds for discussion of the film’s cognitive effect on the viewer. A close examination of the cinematic text reveals the manner in which its dystopian tropes cross over into the horror genre to comment on politics and history, while also highlighting the limits of representation.


La Revolución Zombificada. La Alegoría Del Trauma Cubano En Juan De Los Muertos, De Alejandro Brugués, Antonio Cardentey Levin 2014 University of Florida

La Revolución Zombificada. La Alegoría Del Trauma Cubano En Juan De Los Muertos, De Alejandro Brugués, Antonio Cardentey Levin

Alambique: Revista académica de ciencia ficción y fantasia / Jornal acadêmico de ficção científica e fantasía

A partir del concepto “momento alegórico”, de Adam Lowenstein, me he planteado analizar críticamente la alegoría sociopolítica latente en la comedia Juan de los Muertos(2010), del cubano Alejandro Brugués, en relación dialógica con la zombificación y sus implicaciones argumentales. Siguiendo algunas de las ideas del Manifiesto Zombi, de Sarah Juliet Lauro y Karen Embry, advierto una construcción psicoanalítica del inmovilismo nacional en el contexto de la llamada Primavera Árabe, en el cual se rodó la película. A mi modo de ver, la figura del zombi constituye aquí una variante del tema del doble, en la medida en que alude ...


Un Cuento Satírico En Medio Del Debate Sobre El Darwinismo En México, Miguel A. Fernández Delgado MAFD 2014 University of South Florida

Un Cuento Satírico En Medio Del Debate Sobre El Darwinismo En México, Miguel A. Fernández Delgado Mafd

Alambique: Revista académica de ciencia ficción y fantasia / Jornal acadêmico de ficção científica e fantasía

Charles Darwin's theory of biological evolution of species was accepted or rejected by Mexican scientists, including Gabino Barreda, representative of Comte's philosophy. It was also included by Justo Sierra in a history book for the Escuela Nacional Preparatoria, a decision which raised a lot of criticism from conservative groups. It is also discussed the implications of social Darwinism in the early Twentieth Century Mexico. The document we offer is a satire published in those years, which resembles the tone of Swift's Gulliver Travels.
