López-Ríos, Santiago. ‘These Ladies Out-radical the Radicals’: María de Maeztu, Victoria Kent and Victoria Ocampo.  / "Estas señoras extra-radicales de los radicales": María de Maeztu, Victoria Kent y Victoria Ocampo p. 331-346 Argentina
Siglo XX


The article begins by analysing an excerpt from a letter, dated Madrid, 20 October 1921, from North American Hispanist Caroline Bourland to the President of Smith College, Massachusetts. The paragraph in question describes a private dinner at the Residencia de Señoritas, to which Bourland had been invited by María de Maeztu along with Spanish politician Victoria Kent and Argentine intellectual Victoria Ocampo. The purpose of this article is to consider exactly what Bourland meant when she claimed that those three women appeared to ‘out-radical the radicals’. Included in the study is the intriguing tale of the passion felt by María de Maeztu for Victoria Ocampo and her jealousy of Victoria Kent. The article thus demonstrates the need to investigate female homoeroticism within the milieu of the Residencia de Señoritas.

Sagastume, Jorge R.G. El secreto de los flamencos: Andahazi, Borges y las matemáticas. p. 347-362 Argentina
Siglo XX


Federico Andahazi, in his novel El secreto de los flamencos, weaves a complex narrative that departs from many other texts to readdress Jorge Luis Borges' concept of the Aleph. Like his precursor, Andahazi uses the Cantorian hypothesis of the continuum (also called Aleph-0), to theorize about the difficulty of finding a set that contains all the infinite sets of the universe while at the same time it contains itself. Assuming that such an Aleph exists, like Borges, Andahazi addresses the issue of representing, or explaining, the Aleph with the systems that we currently have: language, mathematics (another language) and/or painting (yet another language). Andahazi, however, instead of touching on the topic of the Aleph from a literary perspective, chooses to approach the idea from the point of view of the art of painting; ironically, Andahazi's El secreto de los flamencos is a literary work. The purpose of this essay is not to unveil secrets buried in Andahazi's novel but rather to attempt to shed light on the topics addressed in it, departing from the texts that ruled its composition, of which Borges' ‘El Aleph’ is the most obvious; however others have also entered Andahazi's narrative and appear throughout the novel, among them the discourses of Plato, Aristotle, Russell and Jan and Hubert van Eyck, as well as historical texts that portray the battle between the Florentine and Flemish schools of painting.
