Violencias y resistencias. América Latina entre la historia y la memoria

Historical studies of violent pasts in Latin America are intrinsically connected to memory studies and, more broadly, to memory politics and memorial cultures. Struggles to explain the construction of the present reflect how societies constantly seek to reinterpret their past, leading to strong political debates and conflicts. The question of how to deal with traumatic past experiences, often related to political violence, has become an issue of great social relevance in many Latin American countries.

Figuraciones de la violencia. Sociología de novelas latinoamericanas

The relationship between sociology and literature has always been characterized by conflicts and complementarities. Since the end of the 19th century, a new episteme on the knowledge of reality and the unrealities that configure it has been consolidated. Whether as a challenge to understand the "human comedy" or as a way of discovering the unconscious, commodity fetishism or the enigma of modernity, sociology and literature have walked the crossroads of the sociological imagination.

(Post-)colonial Archipelagos: Comparing the Legacies of Spanish Colonialism in Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines

The Puerto Rican debt crisis, the challenges of social, political, and economic transition in Cuba, and the populist politics of Duterte in the Philippines—these topics are typically seen as disparate experiences of social reality. Though these island territories were colonized by the same two colonial powers—by the Spanish Empire and, after 1898, by the United States—research in the fields of history and the social sciences rarely draws links between these three contexts.

¿Latinoamérica y Paz? Propuestas para pensar y afrontar la crisis de la violencia

Peace is a concept that is not usually associated with Latin America. Rather, various forms of violence, whether criminal, state, economic or cultural, are commonly associated with the region. The studies gathered here emphasize that, although the subcontinent is historically affected by these serious crises, it is also characterized by important attempts to confront them and seek forms of peaceful coexistence. The analytical perspective developed here understands peace as always intertwined with violence and proposes it as a continuous effort of resistance.

Poscolonialismo a prueba. Cuba, Puerto Rico y las Filipinas desde una perspectiva comparada

This volume examines the social, political, economic and cultural legacies of the last three colonies of the Spanish Empire: Cuba, Puerto Rico and the Philippines. The three former colonies offer an ideal setting for applying a comparative framework of analysis, insofar as they coincide in that their long-term colonial experiences were shaped by the same colonial powers and, moreover, converge in the difference of their geographical contexts and in their postcolonial trajectories.

Etnicidad y autonomía en Cherán K'eri: una reflexión horizontal

In 2011, the inhabitants of the town of Cherán (Michoacán), tired of the dispossessions they suffered at the hands of organized crime, spontaneously initiated not only a process of self-defense, but also an unprecedented political project for their self-determination as an original and autonomous P'urhépecha community. This case raises the question that guides this paper: How to understand Cherán's autonomous political project from an ethnic perspective?

(Re)pensando el vínculo entre migración y crisis. Perspectivas desde América Latina y Europa

Over the years, it has become clear that migration is a structural phenomenon in our societies and not a sporadic one. However, in recent decades, governments, international organizations and academia have associated migration with the concept of crisis. Why is human mobility still linked to the idea of an extraordinary event of modernity? Is migration a consequence of the crisis or a cause? How do different governments and international organizations construct the concept of migration crisis?
