9789806197619: America Latina y sus comunidades discursivas (Spanish Edition)

This book focuses on the growing impact of academic discourses on Latin American culture and literature. It examines carefully how transnational critical theory transforms what we understand as Latin America, often without accounting for Latin American lived experiences. This look into discursive practices includes, among other aspects, a discussion of the following: new disciplinary boundaries in the humanities, the status of literature in the era of globalization, the different understanding of cultural studies in the United States and Latin America, the new Latino culture in the United States, and the widespread use of the concept of postmodernity, particularly as they impact the humanistic legacy through new modes of reading and writing such as deconstruction.
