Overview

Identity and Discursive Practices: Spain and Latin America focuses on contemporary mutual influences between Spain and Latin America. It examines discursive practices on both sides of the Atlantic specifically in the fields of political economy, identity, literature and gender. Although the Spanish influence is not obvious in all twelve contributions, it is an important component of the substratum from which Latin American culture and identity have both developed over the last five centuries and given rise to a variety of identities and discursive practices. With contributions by academics from Spain, Chile, Brazil, Guatemala and Britain, the book brings together scholarly expertise to examine issues such as masculinity, homosexuality, politics, culture, women's identity, nationalism, poetry, and the current economic influence of Spain in Latin America. Scholars and students of both Latin America and Spain will greatly benefit from Identity and Discursive Practices.
