Through a collection of critical essays, this work explores twelve keywords central in Latin American and Caribbean Studies: indigenismo, Americanism, colonialism, criollismo, race, transculturation, modernity, nation, gender, sexuality, testimonio, and popular culture. The central question motivating this work is how to think—epistemologically and pedagogically—about Latin American and Caribbean Studies as fields that have had different historical and institutional trajectories across the Caribbean, Latin America, and the United States.

This book is about the impact of literature upon cities world-wide, and cities upon literature. It examines why the city matters so much to contemporary critical theory, and why it has inspired so many forms of writing which have attempted to deal with its challenges to think about it and to represent it. Gathering together 40 contributors who look at different modes of writing and film-making in throughout the world, this handbook asks how the modern city has engendered so much theoretical consideration, and looks at cities and their literature from China to Peru, from New York to Paris, from London to Kinshasa. It looks at some of the ways in which modern cities – whether capitals, shanty-towns, industrial or ‘rust-belt’ – have forced themselves on people’s ways of thinking and writing.

In 69 Szenen entwirft der erste Roman des brasilianischen Ausnahmeautors Luiz Ruffato ein kaleidoskopisches Abbild der Megacity São Paulo mit ihrem Glamour, ihrem Elend, ihrer Verlogenheit und ihrem Schmerz. Die verschiedenen Schlaglichter fügen sich zur Geschichte eines Landes, das von Gewalt und Entwurzelung gezeichnet ist. Jede der Szenen hat eine eigene Stimme, einen eigenen Ton, eine eigene soziale Färbung. Mit fast paranoider Präzision gelingt es Luiz Ruffato, den Klang, die Gerüche, die Farben, die Angst einer 22-Millionen-Stadt poetisch exakt zu erfassen und zu dem verstörenden Porträt einer zerrissenen Gesellschaft zusammenzusetzen.
