Entre La Efervescencia Y La Ruptura De Un Espacio De Placer En Salón De Belleza De Mario Bellatin, Juan Carlos Rocha Osornio Nov 2014

Entre La Efervescencia Y La Ruptura De Un Espacio De Placer En Salón De Belleza De Mario Bellatin, Juan Carlos Rocha Osornio

Juan Carlos Rocha Osornio, Ph.D

Este articulo analiza la novela Salón de belleza (1994) de Mario Bellatin desde un punto de vista histórico-social para documentar la manera cómo el VIH/sida ha sido visto desde sus inicios. Se trata de un proceso escriturario en el que la marginalidad se conforma a través de una descripción metafórica de un espacio plagado por la muerte. Sin embargo, el simbolismo dibujado en la novela por los infectados de una misteriosa enfermedad, alude a la deconstrucción de cualquier barrera fronteriza entre lo que se considera marginal y no marginal, es decir, la marginalidad hace eco de un grito desesperado ...

Hispanic Orientalism: The Literary Development Of A Cultural Paradigm, From Medieval Spain To Modern Latin America, Svetlana V. Tyutina

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

This dissertation offers a novel approach to Hispanic Orientalism, developing a dynamic paradigm from its origins in medieval and Renaissance Iberia during the process of the Christian Reconquest, to its transatlantic migration and establishment in the early years of the Colony, from where it changed in late colonial and post-Independence Latin America, and onto modernity.

The study argues that Hispanic Orientalism does not necessarily imply a negative depiction of the Other, a quality associated with the traditional critique of Saidian Orientalism. Neither, does it entirely comply with the positivist approach suggested in the theoretical research of Said’s opponents, like ...

Escrituras A Ras De Suelo: Crónica Latinoamericana Del Siglo Xx, Marcela Aguilar, Claudia Darrigrandi, Mariela Méndez, Antonia Viu

Bookshelf

El proyecto de publicar una colección de artículos sobre la crónica latinoamericana aparecida en el siglo xx, principalmente entre 1930 y 1970, intenta hacerse cargo de una producción mucho menos estudiada que la crónica modernista o que la crónica de las últimas décadas, problematizando las definiciones y fundamentos que se le han atribuido al género a partir de esas tradiciones. Más que una nueva revisión de tales concepciones de la crónica, lo que el lector encontrará en los escritos agrupados en las distintas secciones de este libro son elementos parciales y problemas concretos que surgen en muy distintos contextos y ...
