Helincks, Kris. Negotiation of Terms of Address in a Chilean Television Talk Show. p. 731-752 Chile

Summary

This paper focuses on the negotiation and interactional shifts between the three terms of address in Chilean Spanish. The threefold Chilean address system is currently experiencing a linguistic change with an increasing use of voseo verb forms, which results in a complex sociolinguistic and pragmatic variability. The few empirical studies on the topic in Chilean Spanish mainly consider sociolinguistic factors, while intraspeaker shifts, albeit common in the variety, are mostly neglected. This paper examines these particularities from a pragmatic viewpoint, based on the discursive approach to the study of politeness of Watts (2003). Diverse macro and micro pragmatic factors are explored through an analysis of interview and humoristic discourse of a television talk show to gain better insight into the variability and dynamic meaning negotiation of the Chilean terms of address.

Elston, Cherilyn. ‘Ni Engels, ni Freud, ni Reich’: Narratives of Modernity in Marvel Moreno’s En diciembre llegaban las brisas (1987). p. 805-824 Colombia

Summary

En diciembre llegaban las brisas (1987) by the Colombian writer Marvel Moreno has been largely excluded from literary history. The little critical work on the text has simply read it as a critique of patriarchy. However, as this article demonstrates, it is arguably one of the most important works of Latin American literature of the late twentieth century. I argue that the novel situates its feminist discourse in a complex theoretical framework constructed around the master narratives of modernity and their critiques, registering the contradictory transformations of twentieth-century modernity and the unravelling of its metanarratives in an increasingly postmodern world. Yet in showing how this does not simply reinforce a teleological shift from the modern to the postmodern, Boom to Post-Boom, Cold War to neoliberalism, this article goes even further to demonstrate that the novel’s multiple temporalities and complex ideological frameworks complicate the predominant paradigms of Latin American literary studies.
