2007 0-7734-5348-2
This groundbreaking collection of essays examines Argentine cultural production during the 1989-2001 period, which coincided with the implementation of neoliberalism under President Carlos Saúl Menem (1989-1999) and his successor, Fernando de la Rúa (1999-2001), thereby providing an overview of the way Argentine writers, filmmakers, musicians and media reacted to this centrality of the market forces. This collection will be of interest to scholars of Latin American Cultural Studies, Hispanic Studies, Film Studies as well as those of Comparative Literature.

La Literatura Cambalachesca En La NovelÍstica De Osvaldo Soriano
2008 0-7734-5180-3
This study analyzes seven novels by the Argentine author Osvaldo Soriano (1943-1997), in order to produce a critical reading of the ways in which his fragmentary writing works toward subverting hegemonic models of nationalism. The author examines and describes this type of Argentine narrative dynamic characterized by the amalgam of diversity and lack of hierarchy in the textual space.
