Goebel, Michael. Introduction: Nationalism, the Left and Hegemony in Latin America p. 311-318 América Latina

Crow, Joanna Debates about Ethnicity, Class and Nation in Allende’s Chile (1970–1973). [Trad. Debates sobre la Etnicidad, las Clases y la Nación en el Chile de Allende (1970-1973)] p. 319-338 América del Sur ; Cono Sur

In 1964, Salvador Allende signed the ‘Cautín Pact’ with leftist Mapuche organisations in Temuco in which they pledged to support Allende’s presidential campaign and he vowed to introduce important socio-economic reforms to benefit Mapuche communities and to respect their culture and religion. As has been argued in previous studies, there were limitations to the implementation of these reforms in practice. This article suggests, however, that even so, an important space was opened up for – and by – Mapuche people within the government’s left-wing nationalist project. This shift was also reflected in the works of intellectuals closely linked to the Unidad Popular.

Lambert, Peter; Medina, Ricardo Contested Discourse, Contested Power: Nationalism and the Left in Paraguay . [Trad. Discurso Refutado, Poder Refutado: Nacionalismo y la Izquierda en Paraguay] p. 339-355 América del Sur ; Cono Sur

Nationalism has been a key, but generally overlooked, component of twentieth-century Paraguayan politics and an important explanatory factor in the country’s political outcomes. Indeed, it has been central to the struggle for political power, most significantly to the continuing hegemony of the Colorado Party. This article traces the development of the Paraguayan Left, highlighting its structural and functional weaknesses, and analyses its relationship with nationalism, in particular with the dominant Colorado nationalist discourse. It argues that an important failure of the Left – and indeed other political parties and movements – has been its inability to produce a successful challenge to this hegemonic discourse.

Goebel, Michael A Movement from Right to Left in Argentine Nationalism? The Alianza Libertadora Nacionalista and Tacuara as Stages of Militancy . [Trad. ¿Un Movimiento de la Derecha a la Izquierda en el Nacionalismo Argentino? La Alianza Libertadora Nacionalista y Tacuara como Etapas en la Militancia] p. 356-377 América del Sur ; Cono Sur

This article contributes to debates about fascist influences among Argentina’s guerrilla groups of the 1970s. From the overall perspective of developments in Argentine nationalism, it traces back the history of the far-right Alianza Libertadora Nacionalista and Tacuara and assesses their significance as the nuclei from which later guerrillas came. Based on police reports and periodical publications from the period in question (c.1937–c.1973), it makes some generalisations about the collective biographies of militants. While not contradicting the widely held view that originally fascist groupings played a role in the emergence of Argentine guerrillas, the article introduces some nuances into this argument. Particular emphasis is given to the role of Peronism and the Cuban Revolution as facilitators of changes in Argentine nationalism.

Quinn, Kate Cuban Historiography in the 1960s: Revisionists, Revolutionaries and the Nationalist Past. [Trad. Historiografía Cubana en los Años Sesenta: Revisionistas, Revolucionarios y el Pasado Nacional] p. 378-398 Caribe

This article examines nationalist historiography in revolutionary Cuba, focusing in particular on the relationship between pre-revolutionary ‘revisionist’ histories and the revolutionary historiography produced after 1959. Despite agreement among the revolutionaries on the need for new histories to respond to the needs of the revolutionary age, the dominant nationalist historiography of the Revolution repeated many of the myths of the ‘bourgeois’ histories of the past. In the 1960s, however, several historians working at the margins of academia emerged to challenge the nationalist myths perpetuated by both their republican counterparts and by their Marxist adversaries in the University School of History. Yet despite many significant historical re-interpretations undertaken during the Revolution, many of the sacred cows of Cuban nationalism remained firmly on their plinth.

Stack, Trevor Rooting and Cultura in West Mexico. [Trad. Raíces y la Cultura en el México Occidental] p. 399-418 América del Norte

Drawing on Kwame Appiah’s discussion of the relationship between rooting and cosmopolitanism, I show that this concern was shared by many in west Mexico, where I conducted fieldwork among diverse groups of townspeople, villagers, weekend visitors from Guadalajara, and migrants working in Guadalajara and in California. All of those groups talked about belonging or rooting to specific places – villages, towns, cities, countries and so on. They also used the term cultura in a way that resonated more with Appiah’s ‘cosmopolitanism’ than with his ‘cultural particularities’. Although most people aspired to gain cultura without losing rooting, I found that many people judged themselves or others to fail in one or both respects. Migrants in California, in particular, were felt to have lost rooting without having become cosmopolitan. I focus throughout on how west Mexicans, including the novelist Juan Rulfo, used their knowledge of history as a way of claiming both rooting and cultura.
