El autor argumenta que una constelación de factores ayudaron a la creación de este tipo de subjetividades ultra violentas, como la globalización, la precarización laboral, el patriarcado y la impunidad. El necroempoderamiento endriago va a la par de un estado corrupto y de una situación extrema de anomia legal.</p> <p>Las tácticas de violencia extrema responden a lo que el autor ha identificado como <em>criminotopías</em>, es decir, territorios en donde nada está vedado y todo está permitido. El autor se vale de este examen para hacer un análisis de “La parte de los crímenes” en 2,666, la novela de Roberto Bolaño, para así explorar la formación del espacio en la novela y darle al lector una nueva clave interpretativa de su densidad literaria y la conexión que guarda con un fenómeno contemporáneo.&nbsp;</p> Guillermo J Fajardo Sotelo ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://acontracorriente.chass.ncsu.edu/index.php/acontracorriente/article/view/1701 Thu, 16 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0500 Instantáneas Tucumanas: Figuraciones de la espacialidad de la provincia argentina de Tucumán y sus reveses a través del tiempo https://acontracorriente.chass.ncsu.edu/index.php/acontracorriente/article/view/1696 <p>En 2016 se cumplieron 50 años del cierre de casi la mitad de los ingenios azucareros que existían en Tucumán, causando un verdadero desastre económico y social en la provincia. Dicho acontecimiento provocó, a su vez, incomodidad con ciertas imágenes consolidadas en torno al espacio de la provincia, en particular con la idea de Tucumán como el “Jardín de la República” y la asociación de ese espacio con el mundo del azúcar. Nuevos modos de vincularse con el espacio se desplegaron ante esta crisis dando lugar a la reorganización del imaginario geográfico de Tucumán. El análisis del caso particular de esta provincia argentina permite vincular áreas del conocimiento como la Geografía y la Historia Cultural desde un análisis situado que elude la homogeneidad y universalización de otro tipo de enfoques culturales. </p> Julieta Brenna ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://acontracorriente.chass.ncsu.edu/index.php/acontracorriente/article/view/1696 Thu, 21 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400 Piglia’s Diaries: Recovering the Gestation of Plata quemada https://acontracorriente.chass.ncsu.edu/index.php/acontracorriente/article/view/1733 <p>Ricardo Piglia, San Fernando robbery, Liberaij shootout, Emilio Renzi, diaries, <em>Plata quemada</em></p> Daniel Balderston ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://acontracorriente.chass.ncsu.edu/index.php/acontracorriente/article/view/1733 Tue, 19 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0500 Una radiografía crítica de la economía peronista: El Colegio Libre de Estudios Superiores y el curso de economía argentina de 1940 y 1950 https://acontracorriente.chass.ncsu.edu/index.php/acontracorriente/article/view/1760 <p>El propósito de este trabajo es analizar los estudios presentados por un grupo de especialistas, mayormente vinculados a la izquierda, en el Segundo Curso de Economía Argentina organizado en 1950 por Colegio Libre de Estudios Superiores, una institución que agrupaba a intelectuales y dirigentes políticos opositores al peronismo. Las reuniones tuvieron lugar en un contexto signado por el final del ciclo económico expansivo, iniciado durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, y el surgimiento de los nuevos dilemas estructurales y macroeconómicos que la Argentina enfrentaría en las siguientes décadas. El análisis se basa en los textos presentados entonces y el contrapunto con el primer curso realizado en 1940. Se sostiene que el curso de 1950 constituyó una intervención rigurosa en el debate de la época, con un perfil ideológico más definido, y una comprensión profunda de algunos de los nuevos problemas económicos. A propósito de ello, este trabajo reflexiona sobre cómo fueron percibidas las transformaciones de la economía argentina, así como los cambios que se produjeron en el interior del CLES durante los años de Perón.</p> Claudio Belini ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://acontracorriente.chass.ncsu.edu/index.php/acontracorriente/article/view/1760 Fri, 07 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0400 History, Obstinacy, and the Historical Novel: Antonio Di Benedetto's Zama https://acontracorriente.chass.ncsu.edu/index.php/acontracorriente/article/view/1680 <p><em>Zama, </em>Argentine author Antonio Di Benedetto’s second novel, was published in 1956, but its action is set during the final decade of the 18<sup>th</sup> century in an isolated colonial outpost of the Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata. In an influential 1972 essay, Juan José Saer proclaims that <em>Zama</em> carries out a remarkable refutation of the historical novel, parodically deconstructing the historicist ideology underlying the genre. This paper instead reads <em>Zama</em> as a <em>modernist</em> historical novel, showing how it relies on the formal conventions of aesthetic modernism to narrate the subjective, embodied experience of its protagonist, an American-born colonial functionary named Diego de Zama. Thus, rather than conceiving <em>Zama</em> as a refutation of the historical novel, this paper argues that it enacts an important double exposure of aesthetic modernism to the historical novel, and vice versa. On the one hand, Di Benedetto’s novel lays bare the rhetorical foundations of the classical historical novel and its aspiration to objectively reconstruct history; on the other, it relies on modernist techniques in its effort to adequately represent Zama’s subjective, embodied experience of history. This double exposure paves the way for a distinct vision of history which is here brought to light by analyzing a series of affinities between <em>Zama</em>’s approach to history and some of the core ideas expressed by German theorists Alexander Kluge and Oskar Negt in their recently-translated book <em>History and Obstinacy</em>. Their pursuit of forms of “obstinate” resistance embedded in the sub-individual characteristics of the human body and their tendencies toward autonomy and self-regulation relates compellingly to certain methods employed in <em>Zama </em>to narrate Diego de Zama’s experiences, and allows for a new understanding of the theoretical implications of Di Benedetto’s decision to set his modernist novel in the distant historical past.</p> Matt Johnson ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://acontracorriente.chass.ncsu.edu/index.php/acontracorriente/article/view/1680 Mon, 18 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400 The Castle of National Purity: Closed Markets and Closed Homes https://acontracorriente.chass.ncsu.edu/index.php/acontracorriente/article/view/1612 This paper analyzes Arturo Ripstein's El castillo de la pureza and the ways that it represents the decline of the Mexican Miracle. Import Substitution Industrialization (ISI) was an inward economic policy implemented in Mexico during the early twentieth century. In this paper, I trace the history of ISI in Mexico as well as how it affected the film industry. The main argument is that the film allegorically represents the perverse effects of the inward economic policy through the control of the space of the family and the home.
