♥ Book Title : The Carnivalesque Defunto
☯ Full Synopsis : "The Carnivalesque Defunto explores the representations of death and the dead in Brazil’s collective and literary imagination. The recurring stereotype of Brazil as the land of samba, soccer, and sandy beaches overlooks a more complex cultural heritage in which, since colonial times, a relationship of proximity and reciprocity has been cultivated between the living and the dead. Robert H. Moser details the emergence of a prominent motif in modern Brazilian literature, namely the carnivalesque defunto (the dead) that, in the form of a protagonist or narrator, returns to beseech, instruct, chastise, or even seduce the living. Drawing upon the works of esteemed Brazilian writers such as Machado de Assis, Érico Veríssimo, and Jorge Amado, Moser demonstrates how the defunto, through its mocking laughter and Dionysian resurrection, simultaneously subverts and inverts the status quo, thereby exposing underlying points of tension within Brazilian social and political history. Incorporating elements of both a celestial advocate and an untrustworthy specter, the defunto also serves as a metaphor for one of modern Brazil’s greatest dilemmas: reconciling the past with the present. The Carnivalesque Defunto offers a comparative framework by juxtaposing the Brazilian literary ghost with other Latin American, Caribbean, and North American examples. It also presents a cross-disciplinary approach toward understanding the complex relationship forged between Brazil’s spiritual traditions and literary expressions."Article| Robert Henry Moser| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Reclaiming the Political in Latin American History
☯ Full Synopsis : "At an unsettled moment in the academy, when there are seemingly few inspirational paradigms for connecting scholarship to action, Reclaiming the Political in Latin American History offers a heady mixture of reflexive theoretical essays and interpretative case studies that embrace the challenge of writing a social and cultural history of Latin America that is not divorced from politics and broader arenas of power. Responding both to an exaggerated positivism that marginalises culture and postmodernist approaches that defang the political to fetishise "experience," "mentality," and "identity," the contributors integrate material and cultural approaches in a new political and cultural history of Latin America. True to the intellectual vision of Brazilian historian Emilia Viotti da Costa, one of Latin America's most distinguished scholars (to whom the volume is dedicated), the contributors seek to move the field beyond the parallel pitfalls of material and cultural reductionism in search of a dialectics that will advance both a new historiography and new political strategies. The volume takes careful stock of the state of historical writing on Latin America. It delineates current historiographical frontiers and suggests a series of new approaches, focusing on several pivotal themes: the construction of historical narratives and memory; the articulation of class, race, gender, sexuality, and generation; and the historian's involvement in the making of history. Although the book represents a view of the Latin American political that comes primarily from the North, the influence of Viotta da Costa powerfully marks the contributors' engagement with Latin America's past. Featuring a keynote essay by Viotti da Costa herself, the volume embodies a lively North-South encounter that points up incipient trends of hemispheric intellectual convergence. Contributors.
