About this product
- DescriptionEmbers of the Past is a powerful critique of historicism and modernity. Javier Sanjines C. analyzes the conflict between the cultures and movements of indigeus peoples and attention to the modern nation-state in its contemporary Latin American manifestations. He contends that indigeus movements have introduced doubt into the linear course of modernity, reopening the gap between the symbolic and the real. Addressing this rupture, Sanjines argues that scholars must rethink their temporal categories. Toward that end, he engages with recent events in Latin America, particularly in Bolivia, and with Latin American intellectuals, as well as European thinkers disenchanted with modernity. Sanjines dissects the concepts of the homogeneous nation and linear time, and insists on the need to reclaim the indigeus subjectivities still labeled premodern and excluded from the production, distribution, and organization of kwledge.
- Author BiographyJavier Sanjines C. is Professor of Latin American Literature and Cultural Studies at the University of Michigan. He is the author of books including Mestizaje Upside-Down: Aesthetic Politics in Modern Bolivia.
