Convergencia de tiempos

Estudios subalternos/contextos latinoamericanos estado, cultura, subalternidad

Series:

Edited by Ileana Rodríguez

El presente volumen reúne los trabajos del Grupo Latinoamericano de Estudios Subalternos, del Grupo Surasiático de Estudios Subalternos, y de algunos investigadores identificados con el subalternismo. El título contiene todos los temas del volumen. La convergencia de tiempos se refiere a la relación entre dos grupos con intereses afines localizados en dos continentes diferentes, Asia y Latinoamerica. Los trabajos estan organizados en tres secciones: una explica qué son los estudios subalternos; otra, cómo se realizan estos estudios dentros de los contextos latinoamericanos y una tercera se refiere al estado, la cultura y la subalternidad. La primera sección discute conceptos de subalternidad y del significado presente de los estudios subalternos; la segunda problematiza los traslados de teorías, o lo que se ha llamado “teorías viajeras” de un lugar geográfico a otro y la tercera reúne trabajos de campo en los cuales la subalternidad sirve de marco general desde el cual se reexaminan el estado y la cultura. El propósito del debate es por tanto contribuir a una reformulación de los campos del saber en los cuales se promueve el cruce de disciplinas, se cuestiona la hegemonía de los saberes europeos y eurocentristas, y se alientan las conversaciones entre las áreas postcoloniales. El diálogo iniciado entre subalternistas de un continente y otro puede promover formaciones disciplinarias que abarquen áreas continentales y experiencias disciplinarias que vayan más allá de los campos establecidos y que vengan a contribuir no sólo a la provincialización de los saberes europeos sino también a compartir las experiencias locales de todos los territorios de ultramar.

The Vertical Archive of the Casa de las Américas, Part 2: Writers

• More than 63,800 digital files
• Records on 1,046 writers and artists
• Full-text search functionality
• Including MARC21 catalog records

Founded in Havana in 1959, only a few months after the Revolution, Casa de las Américas quickly developed into one of the most prestigious cultural centers in Latin America and the Caribbean. To a large extent its success and survival are the result of its capacity to establish a remarkable intellectual network around a common vision. When during the early years of the Revolution many foreign embassies closed their doors, Casa de las Américas offered a space for progressive minds to exchange information and discuss new ideas. Here, writers and artists from Latin America, the Caribbean and other parts of the world met and gave lectures, organized concerts and exhibitions, staged theater shows, conducted research, and found a place to publish their writings. The record of their activities, which continue to this day, are preserved in Casa de las Américas’ archive, presented here in digital format for the first time.

The Vertical Archive
Casa de las Américas is home to a large library specializing in Latin American and Caribbean humanities and social sciences. Throughout its almost six decades of existence, this library has amassed and preserved an unparalleled archival collection known as “the Vertical Archive.” Organized in five parts, the present part, Writers, offers a unique insight into the activities of the more than a thousand writers and artists who visited La Casa.

Writers
Famous writers from the twentieth century form the core of the collection. Here one encounters such luminaries as Jorge Amado, Mario Benedetti, Roberto Bolaño, María Luisa Bombal, Jorge Luis Borges, Alejo Carpentier, Aimé Césaire, Julio Cortázar, Roque Dalton and Gabriel García Márquez, to name but a few. Some of the leading writers from the nineteenth century are also represented, including José Martí and the pioneer Brazilian novelist Machado de Assis. These world-renowned figures are accompanied by hundreds of their arguably less illustrious peers, who are nevertheless equally essential to illustrate the cultural climate and history of the era.

Artists
In addition to writers, the archive includes files on painters, such as Roberto Matta and David Alfaro Siqueiros, filmmakers, such as Santiago Álvarez and Glauber Rocha, and musicians, such as Chilean singer-songwriter and political activist Víctor Jara.

International avant-garde
The intellectual climate of Havana and the Casa de las Américas attracted thinkers and artists from all over the world. As a result, the documents in the Vertical Archive allow students and researchers to discover new information on various members of the international intellectual and cultural avant-garde, such as Rafael Alberti, Vicente Aleixandre, Max Aub, Luis Buñuel, Italo Calvino, Allen Ginsberg and Jean-Paul Sartre.

Materials
A large part of the collection consists of press clippings, sent to Casa de las Américas by donors and librarians from abroad or hand-delivered by visitors. The institution’s own researchers added to the collection by preserving all sorts of records; to a large extent, this concerns ephemeral documentation that is virtually impossible to find elsewhere, as much of it derives from non-indexed sources or even cable wires and never appeared in the press.

The Writers section of the Vertical Archive bears testimony to a vibrant culture, seen through the eyes of its protagonists. This online edition offers the user unprecedented access to the primary sources documenting a pivotal time in Cuban cultural history.

El aeroplano y la estrella

El movimiento de vanguardia en los países catalanes (1904-1936)

Series:

Edited by Joan Ramon Resina

La meditación sobre la vanguardia como fenómeno literario y artístico aparece en lugar destacado en el despliegue de la teoría cultural contemporánea. El tema general del volumen es la incepción de la vanguardia en la Península Ibérica, incepción que, por razones sociales e históricas precisas, tiene lugar en el marco del debate cultural catalán. El presente volumen no se propone abordar la tarea pendiente de estudiar el fenómeno vanguardista en el marco de la reevaluación contemporánea del fenómeno nacional. Sus horizontes son mucho más modestos. Reúne aportaciones rigurosamente inéditas sobre aspectos fundamentales de la vanguardia en los Países Catalanes y sobre algunos de sus protagonistas, sugiriendo nuevas avenidas para la investigación a partir de sus proprios límites.
