Repensar la escritura: cuerpo, sexualidad y usos amorosos del siglo XXI en la poesía de Maricela Guerrero

Ignacio Ruiz-Pérez
Mi propuesta es que la poesía de Maricela Guerrero (1977) permite visualizar cuáles son algunas de las estrategias discursivas que propone la lírica mexicana del presente, y en qué medida la autora mencionada sugiere un descentramiento ya de los discursos heteropatriarcales o falogocéntricos, ya de los usos amorosos, estableciendo con ello lo que propongo llamar una nueva política de escritura y un nuevo horizonte de lectura en el contexto de la poesía mexicana actual. Esto...

The sex industry in fiction: Rolo Diez’ Poussière du désert and women’s exploitation in Mexico

Cécile Brochard
The frontier between Mexico and the United States is known for some of the most violent crimes in contemporary Mexican society, and these include women’s exploitation. Argentine writer Rolo Diez chooses to set his crime novels in this context of violence and criminality: La vida que me doy (2000) and Matamujeres (2001) explore the exploitation of women through brutality, prostitution, disappearances and murders. Certainly willing to depict the brutality of this lawless chaos, crime novels...

"Plus ultra! ¡Más Mundos hay!" – Discurso criollo y autoría implícita en las loas sacramentales de Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz

Jutta Weiser
The present article analyses Sor Juana’s metatheatrality and self-fashioning in the loas that precede the autos sacramentales El Mártir del Sacramento, San Hermenegildo and El Divino Narciso, starting from the hypothesis that Sor Juana uses authorial figures to highlight her authority as Creole writer and educated woman in the Viceroyalty of New Spain. Interpreted from the angle of the Creole consciousness, the implied author positions herself between the new and the old world, knowing both...

Sor Juana, las riquezas del Nuevo Mundo y el ingenio indiano. En torno a una polémica en los paratextos de las ediciones prínceps de 1689, 1692 y 1700

Francisco Ramírez Santacruz
The theme of criollismo in Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz has been one of the most debated topics in her work. But how did the Spanish intellectuals who published and read her understand this topic? This article reflects on the “ingenio indiano of mother Juana Inés de la Cruz” -so defined by the anonymous author of the prologue of Inundación castálida (1689)- in the paratexts of the three original volumes of her work published...

Las Redes Cooperativas como estrategia de comercialización en el sector aguacatero de Michoacán

Antonio Manuel Ciruela Lorenzo & Guido Rings
En los últimos años, los mercados agroalimentarios internacionales han mostrado una creciente tendencia hacia el consumo de alimentos de mayor calidad y, preferiblemente, libres de agroquímicos. Este es el caso del aguacate, cuyo comercio mundial ha tenido un comportamiento muy dinámico, cosechando a nivel mundial en torno a los 4,5 millones de toneladas, de las cuales sobre el 30% se comercializa internacionalmente. El valor del comercio internacional del aguacate supera los 2.000 millones de dólares,...

La transformación del código petrarquista en los Enigmas de Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz a través de una colaboración femenina transatlántica

Verónica Grossi
The Enigmas offered to the Discrete Intelligence of the Sovereign Assembly of the House of Pleasure by her Most Solicitous and Devoted Sister Juana Inés de la Cruz, Tenth Muse (Lisbon, 1695) is an unpublished work considered minor, whose finding Enrique Martínez López made public in 1968 (reprinted in 1970) and Antonio Alatorre reedited in 1994 (reprinted in 1995). The Enigmas, addressed to a feminine public, both courtly and learned, including the Countess of Paredes...

In consideration of the centenary of the Mexican constitution (1917-2017), the beginning of the Trump presidency in the United States (2017), and the forthcoming NAFTA anniversary (25 years in 2019), contributions to this issue explore business in Mexico in times of great uncertainty. The anniversary of the Mexican constitution, highlighted as “the legacy” of the Mexican revolution by current Mexican president Peña Nieto (2015), presents an opportunity to return to the question of whether there...

Una espectralidad cibernética: Cuestionando un presente hauntológico en Historias del séptimo sello, de Norma Yamille

David Dalton
Norma Yamille Cuéllar’s Historias del séptimo sello (2010) is a novel that puts hauntology in dialogue with cyborg theory because the main characters communicate with the dead through technology. As such, the novel provides an interesting space from which to gauge the reach of both cyborgs and ghosts in engaging trauma. Unlike many hauntological works, where the main protagonist—who functions as a synecdoche for an entire community—brings about a healing of sorts by engaging with...

"Todo lo perdido regresa travestido": los anexos de La sodomía en la Nueva España de Luis Felipe Fabre

Tamara R. Williams
¿How does one re-member the histories of those whose sex has been denied by History, or, in the words of Judith Butler, "the sex that cannot be thought, a linguistic absence and opacity" (Butler 1999: 13)? This essay explores this question in the two poems annexed to “El retablo de sodomitas novohispanos” and incorporated into La sodomía en la Nueva España (2010) by the Mexican poet, Luis Felipe Fabre: 'Villancicos del Sto. Niño de las...

La intervención social desde un enfoque relacional

Joaquín Castillo de Mesa
En el presente artículo se examinan posibilidades de organizar redes interorganizacionales para mejorar los servicios públicos en torno a asuntos clave de desarrollo del capital social y económico. Partiendo de las ideas expuestas en El inalcanzable desarrollo regional y sustenable en México de Merchand Rojas (2014), se propone transferir para el avance del capital social y económico mexicano los resultados de un análisis de un proyecto español dedicado a la gestión de las políticas sociales...

Sor Juana: el Primer sueño, el poder político y el flujo anti-imperialista de sus esferas

Patricia Saldarriaga
The printing revolution of the 17th century made possible the development of the “Theories of the Earth”, an interdisciplinary set of publications that included different visual representations of the earth as a globe, as well as debates and dialogues regarding its shape. Magruder states that global sections (a type of wedge) and global views (only showing the surface) were the two most common ways to represent the earth. Sor Juana contributes to the so called...

Breve mirada al negocio de las telecomunicaciones en México

Tanius Karam Cárdenas
En este trabajo queremos poner un énfasis en la parte de la industria mediática y de negocios en cuanto los retos de la comercialización dentro de las telecomunicaciones. Presentamos también un acercamiento a las cuestiones culturales y políticas en materia de telecomunicaciones, las cuales han sido el fruto central de nuestro trabajo y reflexión, pero reconocemos es imposible hoy día conocer qué pasa con las industrias de los medios, los contenidos y las audiencias, si...

Dark Networks and Pathogens Undermining Democracies: Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s The Strain

Carmen Serrano
As economies and cultures morph due to technoscience, vampire entities also mutate so as to still provoke fear ‒their bodies change, their populations grow and their networks expand; yet the way to annihilate them becomes less obvious. Responding to these modern day changes, Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s television series The Strain (2014-2017) uncannily echoes, or perhaps foreshadows, the social realities under an informational, networked, and epidemiological paradigm. The filmmakers here present viewers with...

Notes on a Queer (Mexican) Literature: The Case of Ana Clavel

Vinodh Venkatesh
The present essay examines the place of Ana Clavel in critical studies on contemporary Mexican fiction. Instead of situating her production vis-à-vis female contemporaries in what has been labeled the Boom Femenino, I argue that Clavel’s novels embody the ethos of a queer literature. A queer literature unpacks, decenters, and disobeys norms of gender, sex, and sexuality, and favors the posing of questions versus the providing of neatly packaged answers. Moving away from the subject,...

Margo Glantz: razón y corazón a un tiempo

Sara Poot Herrera
Journey through the work of the Mexican writer Margo Glantz in search of the influence of her family and cultural environment –as a child of Jewish immigrants in Mexico City at the end of the second decade of the last century– in her ample literary production, considered from the perspective of one of her distinctive features: her constant trips through the world and the narrative emanated from them.

Breaking Silences and Revealing Ghosts: Spectral Moments of Gendered Violence in Mexico

Amanda L. Petersen
This paper examines recent discourse around gender violence in social media protests in Mexico and a short story collection that anthologizes representations of gender violence in short stories by Mexican women authors as part of a greater genre of anti-feminicide cultural production. I focus my analysis on the hashtag campaigns #MiPrimerAcoso and #SiMeMatan and the microcuento collection ¡Basta! 100 mujeres en contra la violencia de género (Edición mexicana 2014) as ghostly discourses that create a...

Procesos micro-económicos en el negocio de la intermediación financiera (1928-1956). Narrativas de integración al entorno nacional de un inmigrante judío sirio

Liz Hamui Sutton
This article aims to build the biographical narrative of Aslan, a Jew from Aleppo origin, who immigrated to Mexico at the beginning of the 20th Century. In this story, personal, family, community, local and national aspects converge, whose organizing axis is the economic itinerary in the context of the growth of the urban capitalism in Mexico City. It seeks to characterize the ethos of the life world of Aslán, that is, that cultural nucleus that...

Haunted Bodies: Spectrality, Gender Violence and the Central American Female Migrant in Recent Mexican Cinema

Olivia Cosentino
The ghostly, the spectral and the idea of haunting as theoretical framework has been previously used to discuss violence(s) in Latin America (Petersen / Ribas-Casasayas 2016, Hopenhayn 2002) as well as gendered violence in Mexico (Petersen 2016). I argue that the spectral allows recent Mexican films to nuance the seen and unseen processes of violence that Central American female migrant bodies experience and the reactionary performances those bodies enact to counter the violence. I first...

Género(s) y sadomasoquismo: la novela Los esclavos de Alberto Chimal

Christian Grünnagel
The present article offers an interpretation of Alberto Chimal’s first novel, The Slaves, published by this Mexican author in 2009, a novel proposing an analysis of sadomasochistic sexual relations. In the center of the narration, we encounter two couples, both homosexual, acting out various sadomasochistic practices ‒ some of them of an extreme nature: On the one hand, two women, one of them already older (Marlene) and (supposedly) the director of pornographic movies, and the...

Espectros del feminicidio: Liminalidad y producción social del espacio en Lomas de Poleo (morir con las alas plegadas) de Edeberto Galindo

Elizabeth Villalobos
This article proposes an interdisciplinary analysis of the play Lomas de Poleo (2002) by Ediberto Galindo through the studies of liminality by Victor Turner and the social construction of space by Henri Lefebvre. This reading allows for the articulation of the complexity of feminicide within the context of the socio-economic spatiality of "glocal" neoliberalism in which Galindo situates the plot of Lomas de Poleo. The article starts from the perspective of the murdered women who...
