Modalidades de memoria y archivos afectivos: Cine de mujeres en Centroamérica

The productions analyzed here are characterized, as is natural, by varied cinematographic planes, some more poetic than others, but in all of them there is a direct participation of the body and subjectivity in the processes they narrate, places where data persist that a sociological statistical count is not enough. All these women have produced poetics of interference filmed sparingly, with few resources and stripped of stridency.

Paisajes en transición

"Paisajes en transición" (Landscapes in transition) is the result of a sensorial exploration with eyes, notebook and cameras through territories and places of extermination in contemporary Mexico, as well as the ways in which they are intervened and re-signified by those who were traversed by violence, but who are not resigned to the passivity of the victim. In the midst of the pandemic that has installed a state of exception to the whole world, the story of this other emergency emerged, more deeply rooted and less visible.

¿Cuándo pasará el temblor?

Violence and conflict are structures that appear continuously in the history of Latin America and have also become drivers of social change. From the time of Latin American independence, violence was manifested as a product of both colonial inheritance and inequality, as well as the confrontation of new political projects inspired from Europe and adapted locally. These unresolved conflicts dragged on from the 19th century to the 21st century, readapting themselves as a product of new conflicts generated by Modernity.

Horizontalidad. Hacia una crítica de la metodología

To propose today a book on horizontality as a methodological perspective of work in social sciences and humanities implies to see with the spatial metaphor that the word invokes: between a background of vision at the same height of all and a predilection of future, of objective that is crossed out in advance by its own sign: the horizon is always beyond.

¡Aquí los jovenes! Frente a las crisis

In Latin America, 60% of the population is under 30 years of age. This demographic fact, in itself, demonstrates the importance of youth and adolescents in the region. However, the young people represented in public and media discourses are often criminalized, infantilized and shown, in a reductive way, as problematic people or groups destined for consumption.
