What is distinctive about Latin America now. Finally the big question: The subjectivities constituted in this new world order are gendered and mobile.

One of the women, dressed in a huipil and a long skirt, kneels in the foreground, apparently tending an open fire. Clearly the imperial thrust of the Natural History Museum is not to be equated with the national narrative of the Anthropological Museum although the articulation of gender in the narrative is equally important. In the United States, hybridity is often a staging of the exotic in order to display a pluralistic happy family, although, as everyone knows, the space between the ghetto and the melting pot is occupied only cancilni baseball stars, media personalities and best-selling authors.

What does a television producer or a market researcher understand by the popular? Narratives of the Miniature, the Gigantic, the Souvenir, the Collection. On the second floor the Museum offers scenes of contemporary life, represented almost entirely by life size models of indigenous groups or photographs of the indigenous. But it is only fanclini latter that undo the power of the centre.

This vocabulary has the advantage of demystifying culture and tearing it away from the romantic notion of creation; cahclini disadvantage is that the economic metaphor makes it impossible to broach the problem of subjectivity.


His Culturas populares en el capitalismo was a real breakthrough in that it described artisan production and fiestas not as survivals or degenerate remnants of a once authentic culture but as immensely variable relations to the market, to national culture and to local history.

How do we study modernity? How do we reconcile different disciplinary approaches to the question? Perhaps the central theme of cultural policies today is how to build societies with democratic projects shared by everybody without making everyone the same, societies in which dispersal is transformed into diversity and the inequalities between classes, ethnic and hibbridas groups are reduced to differences’.

Hence the significance of a question posed by Nelly Richard: Hybridity-as-difference is too indiscriminate to ac-count for both the vernaculars of global culture and the anomalies that truly cause dissent within the happy family.

By gender I do not mean women or making space for women. How do we analyse those phenomena that are not covered by traditional categories of high or popular culture? As many critics have pointed out, however, Latin American culture has been produced by a mestizo population whose culture, though predominantly Hispanic and European, was shaped in contact with indigenous and African-American groups.

Let me simply quote the sentence that concludes her discussion of this statue: When one looks at this photograph, it is precisely the difference between Woman and women that is on display, the public sanctification of formally private life which feminists have made a matter culruras public debate, emphasizing that abortion is not only a ‘woman’s question’.


This is evident from a photograph of the interior of the ethnology room of the Museum which shows a group of life-size figures representing an indigenous family The archaeological exhibition is on the ground floor and cajclini the past.

Thus for instance Bal’s semiotic study points out that the nineteenth century statue of Queen Maya giving birth to the Buddha from her side, marks a transition between the exhibition of animals to that of foreign humans.

The very idea of ‘modernity 7 expressed in the canclin seems awkward.

Canclini Culturas Hibridas prologo | Iván García –

While there is nothing particularly startling in this observation, gendering is surely significant in this representation since it is the family that can best demonstrate the official view of the unchanging continuity of private life between the remote past and the present.

Francis Barkeretal Colchester, Essex, vol. But the scene surely also illustrates the breakdown of the old categories of public and private. Gender is not a hibridad problem but an essential category of analysis. One contemporary recodification of gender is, indeed, graphically represented by a photograph of a group of feminists standing cancllni front of the statue of Mexican Motherhood.

What then is the stake in ‘hybridity’?

The book found a way out of the false dichotomies of tradition or modernity, artisan products or art. Hybridity is a botanical metaphor closely linked therefore to the notion of culture as cultivation, but it has some of the same problems as mestizaje.

Hobridas not only must he make notes but he must also make sense: Jean Franco Publicado en: For further discussion of monumentalism, see Susan Stewart: In the weak sense and since there have always been plunderings, borrowings and intertextuality, the task of the critic seems to be confined to the accumulation of evidence of new hybrids.


In Latin America, the staging of difference is perfectly compatible with integration into the global system.

Beside her are two baskets filled with what looks like the leaves used for making tamales the details of the photograph are not clear. The trouble cancliin the old term mestizaje was that it suggested that culture sprang naturally out of copulation. How does one study the millions of indigenous people and peasants who migrate to major cities or the workers who are incorporated into the industrial organization of work and consumption?

Indeed the discussions of theories of modernity and postmodernity which are reproduced here only strengthen the impression that these words are mere props that only disguise a rather cullturas problem – that of Latin American difference. In its weaker sense, it might simply refer to the postmodern permission to use all repertoires without worrying about authenticity.

The canclkni analogy is not intended to be frivolous. Whether this adds up to a more democratic culture is another matter, given that ‘there is still inequality in the appropriation of symbolic goods and in access to cultural innovation’.

The nation publicly sanctified motherhood; the women’s movement is now cancliin to make public what the placid face of motherhood conceals – the death toll of illegal abortions which is often the only form of contraception available to poo’r women. I cannot go into the details of her analysis.
