Rethinking Marriage in Francophone African and Caribbean Literatures
Rethinking Marriage in Francophone African and Caribbean Literatures analyzes novels and films that demonstrate how marriage affects Francophone African and Caribbean women in their respective societies. It argues that marriage serves as a catalyst for intense identity formation because it functions as a narrative intersection for a number of overlapping themes on gender and the body, class and economics, religion, interracial and intercultural identity and nation building. Marriage provides a narrative space for commentary on cultural practices presented in the works in question as the foundations of cultural identity.

A Wild Country Out in the Garden: The Spiritual Journals of a Colonial Mexican Nun
Madre Maria de San Jose (1656 - 1719)-mystic, chronicler, and co-founder of an Augustinian convent-inscribed her life story within the model of spiritual autobiography set by St. Augustine and Teresa of Avila, but at the same time included her individual story as a seventeenth-century woman of the landowning classes in New Spain. The resulting manuscript records in intimate detail her family life, convent surroundings, and social milieu; it introduces us to a combative and engaging person and gives us a rare and vivid glimpse of a complex society.

Las Novelas Argentinas del Siglo 21: Nuevos Modos de Produccion, Circulacion Y Recepcion
?Cuales son los criterios que definen lo nuevo hoy dia y como funciona la novedad en el campo literario argentino? La idea que sostiene este libro es que el valor de lo nuevo en la novela argentina del siglo XXI reside, por un lado, en sus modos de produccion, circulacion y recepcion (mundial), y por otro, en la visibilidad que cobran las escrituras de mujeres. Este acontecimiento esta relacionado con la fuerte irrupcion de nuevos mediadores en el campo local y en el mercado global, como las editoriales independientes, los talleres literarios y los festivales internacionales, que inciden en la multiplicacion de los agentes de mediacion y en la profesionalizacion del escritor. Estos gatekeepers actuan como dispositivos para la mundializacion de la novela argentina actual, y son un sintoma de que la literatura no solo no ha muerto, sino que se expande a nuevos espacios de sociabilidad que la coproducen y refuerzan en su funcion social y publica. En definitiva: el objeto literario ya no puede asimilarse unicamente al objeto libro, con lo cual los distintos conceptos de 'novela argentina' que conviven en la actualidad no pueden pensarse solo desde los textos, sino desde sus condiciones materiales de produccion y circulacion. Por eso, no cabe duda de que este libro contribuye de multiples maneras a ensanchar el debate que ha propiciado el 'giro materialista' de la critica literaria en los ultimos anos.

Private Topographies: Space, Subjectivity and Political Change in Modern Latin America
In Private Topographies, Grzegorczyk identifies and analyzes the types of postcolonial subjectivity prevalent among the Creole (Euro-American) ruling classes in post-independence, nineteenth-century century Latin America as articulated through their relation to their surroundings. Exactly how did creole elites change their self-conception in the wake of independence? In what ways and why did they feel compelled to restructure their personal space? What contradictions did they respond to? Where and how were the boundaries between public and private constructed? How were the categories of race and gender relevant to this process? For the first time, this book links together political transitions (the end of the colonial period in Latin America) with implacements - attempts that people make to reorganize the space around them. By looking at cartographies of states and regions, the structure of towns, and appearance and lay-out of homes in literature from Mexico, Argentina and Brazil from this nineteenth century period of transition, Grzegorczyk sheds new light on the ways a culture remakes itself and the mechanisms through which subjectivities shift during periods of political change.

Historiopoeten: Formen Literarischer Geschichtsschreibung Im Franzoesischen Roman Der Karibik
Dieses Buch geht von der These aus, dass die koloniale Thematik im frankokaribischen Roman der 1980er Jahre bis heute omniprasent ist, um die undokumentierte Vergangenheit der Region literarisch zu rekonstruieren. So belegt die Studie mit einem Korpus von 25 Romanen in quantitativer und qualitativer Hinsicht, dass zur Darstellung von kolonialer Geschichte eine grosse Varietat an Erzahlformen auf allen narratologischen Niveaus existiert. Die Autorin zeigt, dass literarische Geschichts(re)konstruktionen in den frankokaribischen UEberseedepartements durchaus diskursbestimmend sind, obschon (noch) kein einheitliches Geschichtsverstandnis nachgewiesen werden konnte, das allen Bewohnern gleichermassen eine identitare Verortung im kolonialhistorischen Kontext ermoeglicht. En partant de la these que le sujet de l'histoire coloniale est jusqu'a aujourd'hui omnipresent dans la litterature antillaise francophone et dans le but de reconstruire, par la litterature, un passe regional peu documente, cette recherche qualitative et quantitative, basee sur l'etude de 25 romans, a permis de demontrer que la representation de l'histoire coloniale se manifeste par une grande variete de formes narratives sur tous les niveaux narratologiques. En effet, les discours sur l'histoire coloniale caribeenne et sa representation litteraire sont predomines par une ecriture revisionniste et reconstructive. Pourtant, une comprehension consensuelle de l'histoire coloniale, qui unit tous les habitants de la region antillaise en une identite historique collective, ne peut pas (encore) etre detectee. Partiendo del supuesto de que los autores de las Antillas estuvieran interesados en la tematica colonial para reconstruir literariamente su pasado no documentado, el objetivo del presente estudio, basado en el analisis de un corpus de 25 novelas, fue demostrar cuantitativa y cualitativamente que la representacion de la historia colonial en la literatura franco-caribena manifiesta una extensa variedad de formas narrativas que abarcan todos los niveles narratologicos. En efecto, la escritura historica revisionista y reconstructiva predomina sin lugar a dudas en los discursos franco-caribenos. Pero (aun) no se ha podido comprobar un entendimiento consensuado de la historia colonial que unifique a todos los habitantes de la region franco-caribena en una identidad historica colectiva. Partindo da tese segundo a qual a tematica colonial e omnipresente no romance franco-caribenho desde os anos 80 do ultimo seculo ate hoje, reconstruindo literariamente o passado nao-documentado da regiao, o presente estudo, baseado num corpus de 25 romances, conseguiu provar quantitativa e qualitativamente que a representacao literaria da historia colonial apresenta uma grande variedade de formas narrativas a todos os niveis narratologicos. Com efeito, as reconstrucoes literarias da historia dominam indubitavelmente o discurso nos departamentos ultramarinos franco-caribenhos. No entanto, ainda nao foi possivel encontrar uma compreensao consensual da historia colonial que una todos os habitantes da regiao numa identidade historica coletiva.
