Siempre se trató de la modernidad y del colonialismo: una lectura entre teorías coloniales desde una perspectiva fanoniana - Oto, Alejandro de
This essay surveys some postcolonial itineraries in relation to decolonial thinking focusing on the conceptual and political articulation that Frantz Fanon's work represents for both fields. Two main dimensions are at stake here: On the one side, the discussion about modernity from the locus of coloniality, and, on the other, the political dimension that runs across postcolonial and decolonial readings. Rather than pointing out moments of differentiation, the essay highlights coincidences provided by a set of sources that are close to the early critical writing on colonialism.
Colonialismo acá y allá: reflexiones sobre la teoría y la práctica de los estudios coloniales a través de fronteras culturales - Verdesio, Gustavo
In this paper I attempt a few things. First, to understand the reasons behind Uruguay's and Uruguayans' lack of interest in both the colonial era and indigenous issues. Second, I seek to explore the theoretical and crtical potential of two constructs: coloniality of power and settler colonialism. The idea is to inquire about their reach and limitations without having to choose between the two. Third, I offer a history, and advance an assessment of, the so-called "New Paradigm" in colonial Latin American studies originated in literature and language programs in the USA. At the end of the paper I propose...
Negro, pero blanco de alma: la ambivalencia de la negrura en la Vida prodigiosa de Fray Martín de Porras (1663) - Brewer García, Larissa
The intersection of discourse on Christian universality and discourse on the specific corporality, morality, and spirituality of blacks produced different kinds of subjects of African descent in colonial Spanish American texts. The hagiography of Fray Martín de Porras, written in Lima in 1663 by Dominican Bernardo de Medina, represents Porras's blackness ambivalently: it negotiates the negative symbolic values attributed to the population of African descent in colonial Lima while celebrating Porras as an autochthonous exemplary figure for the viceroyalty of Peru and the Dominican order in general. In this negotiation, Medina represents Porras through an eclectic assortment of characteristics -some...
Nuevas incursiones críticas a los estudios coloniales caribeños: la crítica ecológica - Ferrer Medina, Patricia
The article begins by defining the field of ecological criticism as it has developed in North America by identifying characteristics, methodologies and the possibilities of this kind of analysis, which points towards an interdisciplinary reconfiguration of literary studies. Throughout the text the political charge of the theory and its parallelisms to critiques of capitalism and modernity are underlined. In addition, the paper emphasizes its anglocentrism and overvaluing of specific genres calling for more openness in the interpretation of any cultural production. As an example of an ecocritical analysis, the concept of ecological difference as a marker of difference within the...
José María Arguedas: traductor del Manuscrito de Huarochirí - León Llerena, Laura
The study of colonial documents written in Amerindian languages requires a careful evaluation of translation as practice but also as a concept that articulates the dynamics of the "contact zone". Considering the most recent re-editions of the first Spanish translation (1966) of the Huarochirí Manuscript, a document written in Quechua by the end of the sixteenth century, I revisit in this essay the debates provoked by that translation, work of the novelist and anthropologist José María Arguedas. Disqualified by some critics as a "literary" and a "poetic" translation, the critical reconsideration of the intertext and context of Arguedas's work that...
Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca: gustos y olvidos. Legalidad, viaje y escritura - El Jaber, Loreley
The present essay aims to analyze the reading circuits of Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca's work, questioning its routes and/or its obstacles. For this, we analyze the material aspect of the book, that is, the taste of the reader along with the author's choices and the editorial decisions that lead to the success or the forgetting of a text. Here, we specifically work on the joint edition of Naufragios y Comentarios, published in Valladolid in 1555. The privilege that the first text of this book received over the second one, regarding its edition and reading logic through time, is one...
La literatura Resplandeciente de Raúl González Tuñón: entre la moral partidaria y la afirmación de la aventura - Alle, María Fernanda
This paper aims to analyze the ways of reading literature that are used in La literatura resplandeciente by Raúl González Tuñón. The essays and chronicles collected in the book, published posthumously in 1976, go through the different topics the author has reflected about since his literary beginnings. His reading begins from the notion of "romantic realism" a poetics that combines the value of literature as testimony to the freedom of the writer, looking to go away from the idea of politics as propaganda. However, this concept is stressed and twisted so that it ends up undermining its own principles. González...
La prosa melancólica de Fernando Vallejo - Musitano, Julia
My aim, in this paper, is to analyze Fernando Vallejo's narrative, with the desire to make inquiries in the relationship that the author-narrator-character has with death. The main hypothesis is that Fernando Vallejo's prose is included in the melancholic cultural tradition (ambiguity, mixture, proliferation, digression), and that it would be interesting to articulate this decadent melancholy with the concept of romantic irony (ocultance, mixture, mystification, mixtification) to analyze the singular author's image which is built in the context of contemporary Latin American literature, and more specifically, in the context of the autofiction genre.
