Abstract

The main reason why Latin America is a cultural diverse region is because of the indigenous peoples who inhabit it. That is why indigenous peoples' interests on their cultural property have to be taken into account when this matter is to be legally regulated in Latin American countries. In order to ascertain whether that has occurred, the book explores relevant legal instruments at the international and regional levels and compares national norms in some Latin American countries, particularly those concerning ownership. It concludes that recognition of indigenous interests in Latin American law on cultural property is still a pending task.

Abstract

Una de las notas distintivas y más interesantes de este libro, remite a su pertinencia con el momento en que se escribe. Frente a la consolidación del modelo de acumulación extractivista, se multiplican las luchas por la tierra y el territorio, y proliferan los estudios sobre el tema. En ese marco, el présente texto exhibe los complejos vínculos entre condiciones materiales y dimensiones simbólicas. Se trata del territorio como sitio-objeto de producción y expresión, pero también como conjunto de símbolos y percepciones compartidas. Ciertamente el territorio es habitado por la memoria, la experiencia y el proyecto de los pueblos. Al mismo tiempo, los escritos aquí desplegados dejan entrever la presencia de un vasto universo de organizaciones sociales con importante visibilidad pública y anclaje territorial en la América Latina contemporánea.

Abstract

This is a good time to reflect on opportunities and challenges for Australia in Latin America. Impressive economic growth and opportunities for trade and investment have made Latin America a dynamic area for Australia and the Asia Pacific region. A growing Latin American population, Australia’s attractiveness to Latin American students, a fascination with the cultural vibrancy of the Americas and an awareness of Latin America’s increasingly independent stance in politics and economic diplomacy, have all contributed to raising the region’s profile. This collection of essays provides the first substantial introduction to Australia’s evolving engagement with Latin America, identifying current trends and opportunities, and making suggestions about how relationships in trade, investment, foreign aid, education, culture and the media could be strengthened.

Abstract

Latin America is experiencing a boom in graphic novels that are highly innovative in their conceptual play and their reworking of the medium. Inventive artwork and sophisticated scripts have combined to satisfy the demand of a growing readership, both at home and abroad. Posthumanism and the Graphic Novel in Latin America, which is the first book-length study of the topic, argues that the graphic novel is emerging in Latin America as a uniquely powerful force to explore the nature of twenty-first century subjectivity. The authors place particular emphasis on the ways in which humans are bound to their non-human environment, and these ideas are productively drawn out in relation to posthuman thought and experience. The book draws together a range of recent graphic novels from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Uruguay, many of which experiment with questions of transmediality, the representation of urban space, modes of perception and cognition, and a new form of ethics for a posthuman world.

Abstract

This book examines an unprecedented range of science fiction texts—including literature, cinema, theater, and comics—produced in Argentina from the nineteenth to the twenty-first centuries. These works address themes common to the genre across the industrialized world, including techno-authoritarianism, new modes of posthuman subjectivity, and apocalyptic visions of environmental catastrophe. At the same time, Argentine science fiction is fully grounded in the social and political life of the nation.The texts discussed here explore the impact of an uneven modernization, mass migration, dictatorships, crises in national identity, the rise and fall of the Left, the question of Argentina’s indigenous heritage, the impact of neoliberalism, and the most recent economic crisis of 2001. Argentine science fiction is also highly reflexive, debating within its pages the role of science fiction and fantasy in the society of its day, and the nature of the text in a world of advancing technology. This book makes important contributions to our understanding of science fiction as a genre, as well as to materialist theories of cultural texts. It will also interest students and scholars researching the culture, history, and politics of Argentina and Latin America.
