Las novelas argentinas del siglo 21

Nuevos modos de producción, circulación y recepción

Ana Gallego Cuiñas

¿Cuáles son los criterios que definen lo nuevo hoy día y cómo funciona la novedad en el campo literario argentino? La idea que sostiene este libro es que el valor de lo nuevo en la novela argentina del siglo XXI reside, por un lado, en sus modos de producción, circulación y recepción (mundial), y por otro, en la visibilidad que cobran las escrituras de mujeres. Este acontecimiento está relacionado con la fuerte irrupción de nuevos mediadores en el campo local y en el mercado global, como las editoriales independientes, los talleres literarios y los festivales internacionales, que inciden en la multiplicación de los agentes de mediación y en la profesionalización del escritor. Estos gatekeepers actúan como dispositivos para la mundialización de la novela argentina actual, y son un síntoma de que la literatura no solo no ha muerto, sino que se expande a nuevos espacios de sociabilidad que la coproducen y refuerzan en su función social y pública. En definitiva: el objeto literario ya no puede asimilarse únicamente al objeto libro, con lo cual los distintos conceptos de ‘novela argentina’ que conviven en la actualidad no pueden pensarse solo desde los textos, sino desde sus condiciones materiales de producción y circulación. Por eso, no cabe duda de que este libro contribuye de múltiples maneras a ensanchar el debate que ha propiciado el ‘giro materialista’ de la crítica literaria en los últimos años.

Transmission and Transgression

The History of Rock 'n' Roll on Television

Series:

Gary Kenton

When MTV (Music Television channel) was established in 1981, an executive claimed that they had "integrated the most powerful forces in our two decades, TV and rock ‘n’ roll." In fact, this problematic relationship began in the mid-1950s, when the advent of rock ‘n’ roll represented a musical and cultural revolution. The backlash against the music and the youth culture from which it emanated, described here as "rockaphobia," was reflected in a process of adulteration, racism, and co-optation by television programmers, spearheaded by American Bandstand. This interplay between rock ‘n’ roll and television played a significant role in alienating baby boomers from the mainstream, motivating them to create their own countercultural identity. This social migration helped to delineate the boundaries that would be identified in the 1960s as the generation gap.

Transmission and Transgression uses an interdisciplinary approach informed by media ecology, the theoretical framework which recognizes that each communication technology, or medium, creates its own unique environment independent of content. This analysis allows the author to identify inherent technological and sensory incompatibilities between the medium of television and the cultural practice of rock ‘n’ roll, and to place these tensions within the broader shift of physiological emphasis from the traditional, tribal world dominated by the ear to the modern world which privileges the eye. Even in its remediated, diluted form, rock music has occupied a significant niche on television, and this book is the most comprehensive summary, celebration, and analysis of that history.

Žižek Studies

The Greatest Hits (So Far)

Series:

Edited by David J. Gunkel and Paul A. Taylor

Žižek Studies: The Greatest Hits (So Far) assembles and presents the best work published in the field of Žižek Studies over the last ten years, providing teachers, students, and researchers with a carefully curated volume of leading-edge scholarship addressing the unique and sometimes eclectic work of Slovenian philosopher and cultural critic Slavoj Žižek. The chapters included in this collection have been rigorously tested in and culled from the (virtual) pages of the International Journal of Žižek Studies, a leading open access journal that began publication in 2007. The book is organized into three sections or subject areas where Žižek and his seemingly indefatigable efforts have had significant impact: philosophy, politics, and popular culture. As a "greatest hits," the book offers the long-time fan and uninitiated newcomer alike a comprehensive overview of the wide range of opportunity in the field of Žižek studies and a remarkable collection of truly interdisciplinary "hits" from a diverse set of innovative and accomplished writers.

Major Theories of Media Effects

Analysis and Evaluation

W. James Potter

In Major Theories of Media Effects, six major theories of media effects are thoroughly analyzed and then evaluated to construct a picture of the current state of knowledge in the scholarly field of media effects. These six theories are cultivation, agenda setting, framing, uses and gratifications, social learning, and third person effect. Each of these six theories is examined in detail using fourteen analytical dimensions organized into four categories: how the theory was originally conceptualized, its original components, patterns of empirical testing of its claims, and how the theory has developed over time. The theories are then compared and contrasted along five evaluation dimensions (scope, precision, heuristic value, empirical validity, and openness), plus one summary evaluative dimension that compares their overall utility to generating knowledge about media effects. The insights generated through these analyses and evaluations are used to address questions such as: "What is a theory?"; "Who qualifies as a theoretician?"; and, "Within the scholarly field of media effects, why are there so many theories yet so little theory usage as foundations for empirical studies?"

Concise and accessible analyses of major media effects theories—alongside helpful reference lists that handily index important literature in the field—make Major Theories of Media Effects both a vital reference for scholars and a valuable textbook for graduate and advanced undergraduate courses in media studies.

Narrativas periféricas

Historia e historiografía del exilio español en México

Series:

Iliana Olmedo

Las historias de la literatura española y mexicana, bajo el uso de criterios nacionales, aislaron, marginaron o ignoraron la creación de los intelectuales del exilio español de 1939. Este libro evalúa con inteligencia y profundidad las condiciones sociales, políticas y culturales que conformaron este contexto, para determinar las causas y consecuencias de esta exclusión. Analiza, así, los factores que determinan y construyen la historiografía literaria, tanto de México como de España. A partir del caso paradigmático de Luisa Carnés y Paulino Masip, dos narradores del exilio español en México, cuestiona los criterios tradicionales usados en la escritura de las historias nacionales de la literatura. Del mismo modo, valora las políticas de memoria, surgidas después del fin del franquismo, implicadas en la restitución de los exiliados como autores españoles, para valorar la incidencia del entorno en la formación del canon literario. Así, propone la apertura de este canon, para dar lugar a un diálogo más amplio y rico acerca del exilio español en los dos escenarios donde actúa: México y España, cuya comunidad va más allá de la lengua.
