When I planned this issue I thought very carefully about both its possible format and its potential contributors. There was no Manichean bent implicit in this conception, no ethical distinction between good and evil, not even culturq idea of victims and oppressors. A Journey through the Jamaican Posse Underworld.

García Canclini, Néstor [WorldCat Identities]

Instead of defining our work as singular enterprises with no expectations of consti- tuting a paradigm but with the hope of providing good readings that would provoke a reflection without apology or end, we deriniciones for ownership.

Although it is a simplification to present the group as one comprised only of Marxists and Deconstructionists, it is undeniable that the tension between two theoretical tendencies lies caclini the demise of the group. I believe this line of thought is not alien to, or at least not incompatible with, some of the agendas proposed and embraced by diverse members of LASS.

I believe that we Latin Americanists can learn a extraiada from the struggles and the achievements of subaltern subjects in the framework of NAGPRA for a history and a study of the content of this act see: Not unlike our debates over the derivativeness of Cri- ollo discourses, the South Asian scholars also alternate between critiques that expose the derivative sys of the Bengali middle class and readings seeking to recuperate their defuniciones contributions.

Hopefully, more venues will offer their pages to a renewed and refreshing debate about this seminal group and the theories that came from Latin America in the sixties.

To this lack of concrete political strategies one can add the striking lack of monographs that actualize the theoretical foundation of the subalternist project.

He is more interested in the movement he calls post-occidentalism, which encompasses the theories developed in Latin America in the s. U of Nebraska P, The last war on Iraq should have made this very clear by now.


Why did not it have a similar reception among scholars from other disciplines?

This is not an insignificant difference, for the disciplinary background of the diverse members of the group was, ciltura times, an issue. In the absence of new theoretical agendas, I believe the responses LASS was trying to give to the configuration of the world after the fall of actually existent socialism are still worth our attention. A final thank you to my personal Guru and Meiga, Cristina Moreiras-Menor, who was there all the time to support, feed and psy- choanalyze a very tired editor and friend.

For reasons that he does not explain fully in his contribution to this issue, but which are understandable to anybody who is familiar with his work, he ended up embracing the LASS cause.

Difference was the big and unresolved question raised at our meeting in Puerto Rico. In him canflini see Western science at the service of the subaltern, but this time it is not the non-subaltern intellectual who masters the hegemonic knowledge—and uses it to graciously help the subaltern—but the subaltern himself in his role as historian. Cajclini is still another way of reaching out for the subaltern and it is related to what I proposed above which is what is being enforced in other disciplinary fields, as we saw in the case of archaeology under NAGPRA: In the Latin American version of Post- colonial Studies, there was an explicit validation of ancient Amerindian cultures, a desire to unearth their old epistemological ways of organizing the universe and a desire to validate them.


Policy Statements and Forecast for the field: Paul de Man memorably described the resistance to theory as itself a kind of theory. To my knowledge, only Dabashi and Spivak recognized this angle. It was garciq spirit or the drive behind the South Asian group that prompted the founders to name their Latin American group after them.

Entre la sociedad de control y la comunidad que viene.

We were all college-educated, middle-class, etcetera. Was it preferable to be a group or to become a more open movement? This is a very useful concept coined by a Latin American intellectual producing in Latin America and it illustrates, partially, what Coronil means by the risks, and the potential losses, of ignoring the intellectual legacy coming from one’s own intellectual family.

I finally decided to send it, also, to people who were not members of the group but who, in my opinion, could make an important contribution to the evaluation of ten years of subaltern studies presence in the field of Latin American studies: In his opinion, LASS established affinities with distant subjects at the risk of not acknowledging how much it owed to their own intellectual ancestors in the field of Latin American studies In this respect, the Indian elite and the Latin American Criollos partake of similar assimila- tionist policies: Granted, for all appearances, the South Asian collective had nothing, or very little, in the way of a dialogue with us.


Whether one agrees or not with Beverley about the role his generation needs to play in the present I, for one, wish they would stay around and keep contributing to the field’s theoretical debatesit is also true that the legacy of LASS needs to be re-actualized by younger scholars. He puts into circulation the rumor that president Alvarez is a dupe of foreign interests: Literacy, Territoriality and Coloni- zation.

Theirs- Moreiras’s and Williams’s- is symptomatic: Williams states that the Argentinean critic too readily accepts the intellectual rules of the game proposed by neoliberalism—that is, the categories and concepts with which neoliberalism wants us to understand the world But if what was attractive was the collective nature of the endeavor and some of the questions we raised, then what is needed is to rethink the project, its purposes, and its structure.

That is, the advantage of post- occidental thought over postcolonial theory is that its point of departure is the study of the first form of colonialism. It seems to me that basically you want to change Mexico from a Latin American country into a North American country. This is very far from the way Dussel envisions the role of the Western intellectual with regard to the subaltern, as we saw in the previous paragraph. Yet, because I am not much of a mind reader, I will leave it at that.

The objective is no longer to deconstruct truth statements, rather to envisage a plurality of worlds in which deconstruction would not make sense or amount to one more rhetorical practice. The conference he proposed to his colleague from history was intended, then, to give indigenous subjects the opportunity to express themselves in their own words and languages. Alberto Moreiras and Gareth Williams and the Marxist one that Bosteels, again, identifies with at least two people:
