The Cultural History of the Avant-Garde in the Nordic Countries Since 1975 is the final volume of the four-volume series of cultural histories of the avant-garde movements in the Nordic countries. This volume carries the avant-garde discussion forward to present-day avant-gardes, challenged by the globalisation of the entertainment industries and new interactive media such as the internet. The avant-garde can now be considered a tradition that has been made more widely available through the opening of archives, electronic documentation and new research, which has spurred both re-enactments, revisions and continuations of historical avant-garde practices, while new cultural contexts, political, technological and ecological conditions have called for new strategies.
¿Qué ocurrió con Filipinas después de “los últimos de Filipinas”? ¿Tiene que ver su proceso de emancipación con el de otros países latinoamericanos? ¿Es la modernidad filipina un producto exclusivo de la invasión estadounidense? Este libro colectivo supera agendas nostálgicas y neocoloniales para acercarse desde una multiplicidad de perspectivas a las décadas clave que llevaron a una serie de intelectuales hispanohablantes a imaginarse como nación y reflejarlo en revistas feministas, libros de viaje o novelas costumbristas. Los estudios permitirán puntos de comparación con otras literaturas en español así como una profundización en la compleja sociedad filipina del cambio de siglo, con sus salas de jazz, su sufragismo y su independentismo, pero a la vez su defensa del español y el catolicismo.

What happened to the Philippines after 1898? Does its emancipation process have anything to do with that of other Latin American countries? Is Philippine modernity an exclusive product of the US invasion? This collective book overcomes nostalgic and neo-colonial agendas to approach from a multiplicity of perspectives the key decades that led a series of Spanish-speaking intellectuals to imagine themselves as a nation and reflect it in feminist magazines, travel books or costumbrista fiction. The studies will allow points of comparison with other literatures in Spanish as well as a approaching the complex Philippine society of the turn of the century, with its jazz halls, its suffragism and its independence, but at the same time its defence of Spanish language and Catholicism.
