Abstract

In these times the processes of poverty and social inequality have increased, as well as the scenarios of violence and death that involve people, the planet and life itself. The destructive features of the late international capitalist order have placed the life-death relationship at the center of social, humanistic, ecological and artistic discussion. This book invites us to rethink the contemporary world through the discussion on biopolitics, necropolitics, juvenicide and narcoculture, and offers an analysis of the conformation of the features that emphasize the inequalities, distinctive of some sectors of the middle and upper classes.

Abstract

Debates about the possibility of an open culture – or indeed about the possibility of an open debate about the openness of culture – often turn on questions of standards. But since no benchmark can be absolute, judgement is a proliferation of comparisons. Through a series of case studies in everyday and academic comparison (literature, history, politics, philosophy), Haun Saussy calls out the typical vices of comparison and proposes ways to unseat them. For however much it is abused, distorted, and manipulated, comparison retains an essential link to the idea of justice.

Abstract

In contemporary societies we see a state of social inequality as in the old regime: the accumulation of wealth in 1% of the population, multimillionaires as presidents, the increase in luxury consumption, the emergence of a culture of distinction, as well as the concentration of the earth and the spatial segregation. To understand these phenomena in a coherent interpretative framework, this essay proposes the hypothesis that in the early 21st century we are experiencing a new combination of refeudalization at the global level, but with specific regional features. In Latin America, this concept is particularly useful for understanding the return of the right to power after a period of leftist governments.

Abstract

Has the quality of life of indigenous peoples in Latin America improved after three decades in which legislation has been built that recognizes them? Statistical information and the increase in social conflict in indigenous territories leads to a negative answer to this question. This essay is a critical reflection on the exhaustion of the multicultural moment in Latin America from the dialogue with the critical thinking that has emerged from the movements themselves, especially from activists and intellectuals who denounce the relationship between recognition policies and extractivist capitalism, resisting the colonialist images that these policies reproduce because they deny the historicity and political potential of their peoples.

Abstract

This book analyzes the progress of neoextractivism in Latin America through four fundamental nuclei: the first proposes the categories of neoextractivism and Consensus of Commodities as privileged windows to read the current crisis; the second analyzes the phases of neoextractivism from 2003 to the present; the third addresses the social resistance and the new political grammars from the concept of the ecoterritorial turn, and highlights the advance of indigenous peoples and the growing role of women; and the fourth illustrates the expansion of the frontiers of extractivism: criminal territorialities, patriarchal violence and extreme energies.

Abstract

"The need for an immediate, transparent and sustainable dissemination of current research has become a prerequisite for the further development of science today. Making research results freely available online as Open Access is considered to achieve the widest possible dissemination worldwide. Everyone can access anywhere Open Access publications without any restrictions or paywalls. Meanwhile more and more academic institutions and universities have already started their own presses to publish books Open Access. In the present manual a sustainable and ideal workflow for producing and publishing academic books is presented. That workflow enables universities to publish their publications both as Open Access and printed books in a state-of-theart way and without any restrictions regarding the license, the variety of formats, print run etc. As proof of concepts we have processed different use cases which demonstrates the current status of the technically and economically possibilities in the publishing sector. Furthermore, data on time, costs and personnel resources were determined, which can be used by other universities and academic institutions to indicate the necessary investments for founding and operation of their own Open Access university presses."
