SKURSKI - The Ambiguities of Authenticity

SKURSKI - The Ambiguities of Authenticity

Ratings: (0)|Views: 88|Likes:
This article argues that in Latin America nationalism's claims to unity and authenticity are premised upon ambiguous notions of civilizing hierarchy and exclusion. It traces the links between the establishment of Romulo Gallegos's 1929 novel Doha Barbara as a mythic charter of the populist-nationalist project in Venezuela and the context of the novel's production and early reception. Integrating Enlightenment and "irrationalist" intellectual currents, Dona Barbara provided a model for the identification of the reformist middle-class elite as the agent of civilizing modernity, capable of negotiating unstable claims to authority within a fractured polity.
