top_DOWNLOADLaura Chinchilla – CARTOGRAFÍAS PARANOICAS Espacio y violencia en la producción cultural hondureña reciente

Abstract: «Paranoid Cartographies. Space and Violence in Recent Cultural Production from Honduras». The Central American crime novel has been studied in the context of the region’s civil wars and armed conflicts. These studies point to the climate of paranoia and violence that governs life in these countries. Honduran narratives of crime still remain to be studied, however. This essay focuses on recent Honduran cultural production around crime to define some traits in the narrative treatment of paranoia. The novels Caribe Cocaine and La mitad roja del puente by Ernesto Bondy and art by Alma Leiva are analyzed to argue that these texts present an engagement with paranoia through space. These two artists also stage two different ways of thinking through the affects generated by violence.

Key words: Crime fiction – Paranoia – Art – Honduras.

Abstract: «Body and Memory. ¿Quién puede borrar las huellas?». In July 2003 the Guatemalan artist and writer Regina José Galindo (1974) realized the performance ¿Quién puede borrar las huellas?, walking barefoot for almost an hour from a palace of power to another in Guatemala City, tracing a path of human blood footprints in memory of the victims of the armed conflict occurred in her country, and in rejection of the presidential nomination of the former dictator Efraín Ríos Montt. The spectators, ordinary citizens, through their silence, fear, anger, or astonishment, become actors who embody the lack of historical memory, the impotence and passivity in the face of institutional violence. The artist’s body – bearer of massacred identities – becomes a support for the Guatemalans’ collective identity, and a space of struggle against the oblivion and the State violence. This essay attempts to explore the Galindo’s performance and its symbols (footprints, blood, silence), focusing on the materialization of memory and the visibility of oblivion.

Key words: Body – Violence – Memory/Oblivion – Presence/Absence.

«El material humano» y «Pasada de cuentas»

Abstract: «The Dangers of Looking. Detectives Kept Under Surveillance in Senselessness, El material humano, and Pasada de cuentas». This article explores the visuality associated with the state and state-like actors and the counter visuality that writers enact in the Central American context. The novels Senselessness by Horacio Castellanos Moya, El material humano by Rodrigo Rey Rosa, and Pasada de cuentas by Manuel Martínez explore the tensions between the power of visuality and that of counter visuality in the contemporary period of recently democratized societies that, as in the case of Martínez, see an increase in drug trafficking, and the actions of democratic citizens who investigate the truth in their countries. This tension helps explain why Central American detective characters regularly fail.

Key words: Castellanos Moya – Rey Rosa – Manuel Martínez – Crime fiction – Visuality.

Abstract: «Rubén Darío, Camille Aymard and La Renaissance Latine». From 1900 on, Rubén Darío lived in Paris, struggling to find a place for himself in the French intellectual landscape. When Édouard Reyer put him in touch with the recently founded journal La Renaissance Latine, the poet published in its pages a short but important analysis of the future of the Latin peoples of America. But difficulties soon arose, which we describe in this article. In the end the best result of La Renaissance Latine episode was Darío’s friendship with a young and dynamic French lawyer, Camille Aymard.

Key Words: Rubén Darío – Camille Aymard – La Renaissance Latine.

Pallais, Epístola católica a Rafael Arévalo Martínez (1947), an excellent book of poems that has not received any critical attention.
