9781845452919: Intersected Identities: Strategies of Visualization in Nineteenth- and Twentieth-century Mexican Culture (Remapping Cultural History, Vol. 5)

There has always been an important visual element to the construction and questioning of national identity in post-Independence Mexico, though one that has not always been given its due, outside of the celebrated and much-studied muralists. Ranging from the early nineteenth century to the present – from the vogue for the picturesque, illustrated periodicals and the influential writings of Altamirano to a wealth of twentieth-century graphic artists, filmmakers and photographers – this book re-examines the complex variety of ways in which that visual element has operated. In particular, it looks at the ways in which discourses concerning ethnicity and cultural hybridity have been echoed and transformed in Mexican visual culture, resulting in fields of visual discourse which are eclectic and increasingly self-reflexive.

About the Author:

Erica Segre has published and lectured extensively on Mexican visual culture and is Newton Trust Lecturer in Hispanic Studies in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, University of Cambridge, Fellow of Trinity College and Affiliated Lecturer at the Centre of Latin American Studies.

Review:

"This is an excellent piece of scholarship. The author has clearly devoted herself to a sustained reflection on a very substantial visual archive of Mexican culture, and in so doing, she has generated virtuosic interpretations of many visual artifacts, some canonical, others less well-known."  ·  Bulletin of Latin American Research

"...an outstanding contribution to the growing documented history of visual representations and technologies in Mexico."  ·  Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology

"...this is provocative book that will be referred to for years to come."  ·  The Americas

"...[a] fascinating scholarly work, whose greatest merit is to provide a model for extensive subsequent scholarship...[that] belongs to the core bibliography of outstanding Mexican cultural studies."  ·  Bulletin of Spanish Studies

Book Description Berghahn Books, United Kingdom, 2007. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book seeks to configure the ways in which the interdisciplinary, the eclectic and the combinatory have served a strategic purpose in the development of a self-aware and identity-conscious visual discourse in Mexico, from the formative nineteenth century to the post-national 1990s. The construction and interrogation of identities in reproductive media provides the unifying analytical interest ranging over observational writing, illustrated periodicals, graphic art, photography and film. Chapters discuss nation-building imagery and exhibitionary paradigms; cultural nationalism and photographic ethnicity; the interplay of graphic arts and film in the construction of originary identities; disabused perspectives on modernization and urbanism in film and photography; women photographers and the indigenous subject; the questioning of objective identities and the play of reflexive tropes in modernist and 1990s photography; the deconstruction of the Mexican archive in post-national photography and multimedia art; and archaeological models and materials and the dismantling of cultural nationalism in visual culture.
