♥ Book Title : Imágenes de la nación
☯ Full Synopsis : "En el ano 2010 Argentina festejo su Bicentenario, produciendo distintas intervenciones respecto de los modos de rememorar las narraciones historicas y las tradiciones culturales. En ese marco, la Biblioteca Nacional convoco a un concurso de becas de investigacion para proyectos destinados a relevar el fondo patrimonial de la institucion, con relacion a las representaciones y querellas de la nacion. En este libro publicamos tres de los trabajos resultantes de esos proyectos, que articulan la lucida reflexion con la pesquisa erudita. Configuran un modo de conmemorar que comprende la celebracion articulada con la critica y el pensamiento. Al indagar las formas de representar la nacion lo hacen con el cuidado del arqueologo que trata las huellas del pasado y con la pasion del que interroga los nucleos diversos de la identidad nacional.""Article| Josefina Fernández| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Culture and Management in the Americas
☯ Full Synopsis : "Latin Americans are culturally different from North Americans in ways that so far have been inaccurately portrayed in the management literature. In Culture and Management in the Americas, Alfredo Behrens argues that these differences merit a substantial overhaul of management theory and practice to make the best of the significantly untapped Latin American potential for creativity, innovation, and teamwork. This applies in organizations with North American ownership and management, whether they are based in the U.S. or Latin America. Behrens, a management consultant and academic who has studied, taught, and practiced in South and North America and Europe, explains why the use of traditional North American research methods to capture cultural traits in the multi-cultural workforce is inappropriate. This practice produces a false picture of the cultural attributes and capabilities of Latin American managers and key staff. And this, in turn, leads to serious shortcomings in the development of appropriate motivation and leadership strategies and of appraisal and control instruments. Rather than relying on standardized surveys for measuring cultural attributes to underpin and develop such strategies and tools, the author suggests that managers look to the arts—particularly literature and cinema—for a richer and more useful alternative. He illustrates his points by reference to literary icons such as Argentina's Martin Fierro, Brazil's Macunaima, and America's Captain Ahab. He uses a variety of case studies to demonstrate what we can learn from these iconographic characters and what we can expect of each other when we apply these lessons—whether we are leading, following, or working in self-directed teams. This readable and enjoyable book will be an invaluable, engaging, and practical tool for anyone charged with managing at any level in workforce that combines both North American and Latin American cultures."Article| Alfredo Behrens| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Vanguardia Y Humorismo Gráfico en Crisis
☯ Full Synopsis : "The book studies the relation between the avant-garde and graphic humour in two critical historical periods: the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) and the early years of the Cuban Revolution (1959-1961). It focuses on the so-called war magazines in Spain on the Republican side (No Veas, Trincheras, and LEsquella de la Torratxa,among others) and the Francoist side (Vértice and La Ametralladora). In the part devoted to Cuba, the analysis covers the newspaper Revolución and the avant-garde humour magazine El Pitirre, which ran simultaneously to the cultural supplement Lunes de Revolución and shared the same fate when Lunes and El Pitirre were closed down in 1961. The book unveils the trajectory of the avant-garde graphic humour in both periods, when the political commitment progressively overshadowed the development of the aesthetic avant-garde. The special socio-political conjuncture posed ideological and aesthetic-conceptual challenges to graphic artists, establishing contact areas and influences between Spain and Cuba."Article| Jorge L.

♥ Book Title : Performing Women and Modern Literary Culture in Latin America
☯ Full Synopsis : "Women have always been the muses who inspire the creativity of men, but how do women become the creators of art themselves? This was the challenge faced by Latin American women who aspired to write in the 1920s and 1930s. Though women's roles were opening up during this time, women writers were not automatically welcomed by the Latin American literary avant-gardes, whose male members viewed women's participation in tertulias (literary gatherings) and publications as uncommon and even forbidding. How did Latin American women writers, celebrated by male writers as the "New Eve" but distrusted as fellow creators, find their intellectual homes and fashion their artistic missions? In this innovative book, Vicky Unruh explores how women writers of the vanguard period often gained access to literary life as public performers. Using a novel, interdisciplinary synthesis of performance theory, she shows how Latin American women's work in theatre, poetry declamation, song, dance, oration, witty display, and bold journalistic self-portraiture helped them craft their public personas as writers and shaped their singular forms of analytical thought, cultural critique, and literary style. Concentrating on eleven writers from Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, Mexico, Peru, and Venezuela, Unruh demonstrates that, as these women identified themselves as instigators of change rather than as passive muses, they unleashed penetrating critiques of projects for social and artistic modernization in Latin America."Article| Vicky Unruh| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Los "gallegos" en el imaginario argentino
☯ Full Synopsis : ""Los gallegos de Galicia (que terminaron englobando en su gentilicio a todos los espanoles), cruzan la Historia argentina. Sin embargo, pese a su enorme incidencia demografica y cultural, no abundan los estudios especificos sobre sus representaciones en el imaginario colectivo. El presente libro se propone saldar esa deuda, rastreando sus huellas en la prensa (Caras y Caretas), en el sainete o genero chico criollo, y en la considerada 'alta literatura'"--Publisher's website The Galicians of Spain's Galicia (a designation which ended up being used to describe all of the inhabitants of Spain), traverse Argentina's history. However, despite their enormous demographic and cultural impact, there are not many specific studies regarding their representation in the collective imagination of Argentina. This book attempts to address this deficit, researching their depiction in the press (as in Faces and Masks magazine), in farces, Argentine drama, popular theater, and in "scholarly literature""Article| Marina Guidotti de Sánchez| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Madness in Buenos Aires
☯ Full Synopsis : "Madness in Buenos Aires examines the interactions between psychiatrists, patients and their families, and the national state in modern Argentina. This book offers a fresh interpretation of the Argentine state’s relationship to modernity and social change during the twentieth century, while also examining the often contentious place of psychiatry in modern Argentina. Drawing on a number of previously untapped archival sources, author Jonathan Ablard uses the experience of psychiatric patients as a case study of how the Argentine state developed and functioned over the last century and of how Argentines interacted with it. Ablard argues that the capacity of the state to provide social services and professional opportunities and to control the populace was often constrained to an extent not previously recognized in scholarly literature. These limitations, including a shortage of hospitals, insufficient budgets, and political and economic instability, shaped the experiences of patients, their families, and doctors and also influenced medical and lay ideas about the nature and significance of mental illness. Furthermore, these experiences, and the institutional framework in which they were imbedded, had a profound impact on how Argentine psychiatrists discussed not only mental illness but also a host of related themes including immigration, poverty, and the role of the state in mitigating social problems."Article| Jonathan Ablard| Statement ..."
