Undying (And Undead) Modern National Myths: Cannibalism And Racial Mixture In Contemporary Brazilian Vampire Fiction, Jacob C. Brown 2019 Vanderbilt University

Undying (And Undead) Modern National Myths: Cannibalism And Racial Mixture In Contemporary Brazilian Vampire Fiction, Jacob C. Brown

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

Contemporary cultural media illustrates the vampire as an important symbolic figure in the Brazilian imaginary. For example, in twentieth and twenty-first century Brazilian fiction, television, and political discourse, vampires have risen from their supposedly European origins as expressions of urban decay, comic excess, and government corruption in Brazil. Beyond these representations, I focus on three contemporary novels in which the vampire also plays a starring role. O vampiro que descobriu o Brasil (1999) by Ivan Jaf, Aventuras do vampiro de Palmares (2014) by Gerson Lodi-Ribeiro, and Dom Pedro I Vampiro (2015) by Nazarethe Fonseca stand out from other creative reimaginings ...

Seeing (As) The Eroticized And Exoticized Other In Spanish Im/Migration Cinema: A Critical Look At The (De)Criminalization Of Migrants And Impunity Of Hegemonic Perpetrators, Maureen Tobin Stanley 2019 University of Minnesota Duluth

Seeing (As) The Eroticized And Exoticized Other In Spanish Im/Migration Cinema: A Critical Look At The (De)Criminalization Of Migrants And Impunity Of Hegemonic Perpetrators, Maureen Tobin Stanley

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

This article examines cinematic perspective in six Spanish im/migration films to show that by resituating the identification from an alignment with that of a hegemonic character (who accepts the systematic bias that confers impunity to perpetrators) to identification with a criminalized migrant subject, these films 1) denounce systemic intersectionality that confers impunity to perpetrators and criminalizes the racialized and/or feminized other and 2) aim at fostering empathy in the hegemonically identified viewer. Parameters for the selection of the six films are: immigration to Spain, African (whether geographic or ethnic) origins, eroticization of the migrant, objectification/(ab)use/commodification ...

Lo Fantástico Y La Historia: La Polémica Entre La Sombra Del Caudillo Y Tirano Banderas, Juan Velasco 2019 Santa Clara University

Lo Fantástico Y La Historia: La Polémica Entre La Sombra Del Caudillo Y Tirano Banderas, Juan Velasco

Juan Velasco

Sobre Ia base del debate que asento Martin Luis Guzman a raiz del articulo "Tirano Banderas", publicado en "La Opinion" de Los Angeles el 17 de marzo de 1927, se dejan planteadas una serie de preguntas que cuestionan el uso del discurso fantastico en Ia representacion de Ia historia Iatinoamericana. La polemica sobre Ia ideologia de Ia forma tiene un especial relieve en tanto que viene a sumarse a Ia de Ia siempre compleja relacion cultural entre Europa y America. En este trabajo me propongo explorar cuales son los criterios determinantes de esta problematica geograficoideologica y sus consecuencias esteticas.


Automitografías: The Border Paradigm And Chicana/O Autobiography, Juan Velasco 2019 Santa Clara University

Automitografías: The Border Paradigm And Chicana/O Autobiography, Juan Velasco

Juan Velasco

For Chicana/o cultural critics, the border paradigm has defined the boundaries of writing and experience in contemporary Chicana/o autobiography, and has constituted a valuable contribution to American Studies. In fact, the unique voices coming from Chicana/o autobiography are expressed through a network of cultural codes involving liminality and hybridity, the rewriting of borders, and the challenging of boundaries created by mainstream cultures and official truth. Based on this deep relationship of border paradigm, Chicana/o experience, and the writing and representation of that experience, in this article I will discuss the possibility of building an organic and ...
