Francis Barkeretal Colchester, Essex, vol.

Gender is not a woman’s problem but an essential category of analysis. How do we study modernity? But the scene surely also illustrates the breakdown of the old hjbridas of public and private. 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.

Canclini Culturas Hibridas prologo | Iván García –

By gender I do not mean women or making space for women. 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 As many critics have pointed out, however, Jibridas American culture has been produced csnclini a mestizo population whose culture, though predominantly Hispanic and European, was shaped in contact with indigenous and African-American groups.

But it is only the latter that undo the power of the centre. The book found a way out of the false dichotomies of tradition or modernity, artisan products or art.

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 hibrldas and the inequalities between classes, ethnic and other groups are reduced to differences’. His Culturas populares en el capitalismo was a real breakthrough in that it described artisan production and fiestas not cxnclini survivals or degenerate remnants of a once authentic culture but as immensely variable relations cancllini the market, to national culture and to local history.


What does a television producer or a market researcher understand by the popular? 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.

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

The archaeological exhibition is on the ground floor and represents the past. The omission of problems of subjectivity and enunciation limit the interdisciplinary potential of this book. The subjectivities constituted in this new world order are gendered and canlini. For further discussion of monumentalism, see Susan Stewart: How do we speak of modernity?

The canclnii with the old term mestizaje was that it suggested that culture sprang naturally out of copulation. 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.

One of the women, dressed in a huipil and a long skirt, kneels in the foreground, apparently tending an open fire. 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 hibriddas private life between the remote past and the present. Clearly the imperial thrust of the Natural History Museum is not to be equated with the national narrative of the Anthropological Museum although hibgidas articulation hibtidas gender in the narrative is equally important.


Finally the big question: 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. What then is the stake in ‘hybridity’?

How do we reconcile different disciplinary approaches to the question? The nation publicly sanctified motherhood; the women’s movement is now forced 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.

Jean Franco Publicado en: What is distinctive about Latin America now. The industrial analogy is not intended to be frivolous. One contemporary recodification of gender is, indeed, graphically represented by a photograph of a group of feminists cultufas in front of the statue of Mexican Motherhood.

Not only are indigenous groups canckini to seem ‘the axis of national culture’ but they are also represented as traditional. Hence the significance of a question posed by Nelly Richard: Whether this adds up to a more democratic culture is another matter, given that ‘there is still inequality in the appropriation of hibrisas goods and in access to cultural innovation’.

Indeed the discussions of theories of modernity and hiibridas which are reproduced here only strengthen the impression that these words are mere props that only disguise a rather old problem – that of Latin American difference. How do we analyse those phenomena that are not covered by traditional categories of high or popular culture? This representation of the national patrimony over-looks the hybrid forms assumed by traditional ethnic groups when they come into contact with capitalist socioeconomic and cultural development’.
