Abstract

Comics Beyond the Page in Latin America is a cutting-edge study of the expanding worlds of Latin American comics. Despite lack of funding and institutional support, not since the mid-twentieth century have comics in the region been so dynamic, so diverse and so engaged with pressing social and cultural issues. Comics are being used as essential tools in debates about, for example, digital cultures, gender identities and political disenfranchisement. Rather than analysing the current boom in comics by focusing just on the printed text, however, this book looks at diverse manifestations of comics ‘beyond the page’. Contributors explore digital comics and social media networks; comics as graffiti and stencil art in public spaces; comics as a tool for teaching architecture or processing social trauma; and the consumption and publishing of comics as forms of shaping national, social and political identities. Bringing together authors from across Latin America and beyond, and covering examples from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, Peru and Uruguay, the book sets out a panoramic vision of Latin American comics, whether in terms of scholarly contribution, geographical diversity or interdisciplinary methodologies.

Abstract

The book that the reader has in his hands is about one of the most important scientific questions for the knowledge of the history of mankind: how do societies arise, organize, move and transform? He asks that, like the central problems of science, he does not find his origin in the narrow walls of academic fields, but rather he responds to the need that, as a society, we have to know, elucidate who we are and where we are going. De te fabula narratur: about you, about you, about me, about him, about her, about all of us, history speaks.

Abstract

Why do governments in some developing countries implement international standards, while others do not? Focusing on the politics of bank regulation, this book develops a new framework to explain regulatory interdependence between countries in the core and the periphery of the global financial system. Drawing on in-depth analysis of eleven countries across Africa, Asia, and Latin America, it shows how financial globalization generates strong reputational and competitive incentives for developing countries to converge on international standards. Regulatory interdependence is generated by relations between regulators, politicians, and banks within developing countries, and international actors including investors, peer regulators, and international financial institutions. We explain why it is that some configurations of domestic politics and forms of integration into global finance generate convergence with international standards, while other configurations lead to divergence. This book contributes to our understanding of the ways in which governments and firms in the core of global finance powerfully shape regulatory politics in the periphery, and the ways in which peripheral governments and firms manoeuvre within the constraints and opportunities created by financial globalization

Abstract

ZusammenfassungDie Autorin untersucht, wie lokale Akteure, die von großflächigen Landinvestitionen betroffen sind, ihre Interessen mit rechtlichen Normen schützen. Erfolgsbedingungenwerden durch rechtliche, soziale Mobilisierungs- und Business Management Perspektiven identifiziert und in vier Fallstudien aus Sierra Leone und den Philippinen spezifiziert. Die Befunde zeigen die Relevanz der nationalen rechtlichen Opportunitätsstrukturen, der Stärke von Unterstützungsnetzwerken sowie der Charakteristika von Unternehmen. Auch die Rolle von politischen Eliten und die Einigkeit lokaler Akteure ist zentral.Das Buch ist für Leser und Leserinnen aus Wissenschaft und Praxis relevant, die sich für die Interaktion von rechtlichen Möglichkeiten und lokalen Reaktionen bei großen Investitionsprojekten interessieren. Mit Fallbeispielen aus dem Globalen Süden leistet die Arbeit einen Beitrag zur Literatur zu rechtlicher Mobilisierung. Damit fokussiert das Buch auf ein weniger erforschtes Phänomen sozialer Mobilisierung.AbstractThis book enquires how local communities affected by large-scale land deals make use of legal norms to protect their interests. It combines legal, social mobilisation and business management approaches to identify conditions that promise success in this respect, which are explored in four case studies from two countries: Sierra Leone and the Philippines. The findings of these studies show the relevance of the national legal opportunity structure, strong support networks and the specific characteristics of a company in this regard. The role of political elites and the unity of local actors are also discussed.This book is especially relevant for academics and practitioners interested in the relationship between legal frameworks and local reactions to foreign investors. It also contributes to the research literature on legal mobilisation by going beyond the Western world. Finally, the book offers perspectives on the ‘middle ground’ of social mobilisation phenomenons, which are neither social movements nor everyday resistance.
