Latin American Cinema: A Comparative History by Paul A. Schroeder RodríguezThis book charts a comparative history of Latin America's national cinemas through ten chapters that cover every major cinematic period in the region: silent cinema, studio cinema, neorealism and art cinema, the New Latin American Cinema, and contemporary cinema. Schroeder Rodríguez weaves close readings of approximately fifty paradigmatic films into a lucid narrative history that is rigorous in its scholarship and framed by a compelling theorization of the multiple discourses of modernity. The result is an essential guide that promises to transform our understanding of the region's cultural history in the last hundred years by highlighting how key players such as the church and the state have affected cinema's unique ability to help shape public discourse and construct modern identities in a region marked by ongoing struggles for social justice and liberation.

Dimensiones Del Latinoamericanismo by Mabel Moraña (Editor)Entre otros, los temas de memoria, testimonialismo, migración, realismo mágico, descolonización, cómics, "nuevo cine" e identidad reciben en este libro un tratamiento nuevo, que incorpora ángulos críticos y teóricos que permiten replantear problemas ya presentes y visualizar aspectos impensados en el corpus siempre abierto del latinoamericanismo contemporáneo. Tales aproximaciones incluyen reflexiones profundas sobre representación simbólica, ejercicios comparativos y análisis ideológicos que dinamizan ese campo de estudios y marcan las rutas académicas e intelectuales que se siguen en la actualidad en los estudios literarios y culturales. Estos artículos constituirán, sin duda, referencia obligada sobre los temas abordados, pero también como ejemplo de metodologías trans-disciplinarias que inscriben la temática latinoamericana en contextos mayores, como los de la literatura mundial, la globalización y los movimientos sociales.
