Gender is not a woman’s problem but an essential category of analysis. The book found a way out of the false dichotomies of tradition or modernity, artisan products or art. Finally the big question: The nation publicly sanctified motherhood; the women’s movement is now forced to make public what the placid face of motherhood conceals – the death toll of illegal abortions which is often the only form of contraception available to poo’r women.

Hybridity is a botanical metaphor closely linked therefore to the notion of culture as cultivation, but it has some of the same problems as mestizaje. Hybridity-as-difference is too indiscriminate to ac-count for both the vernaculars of global culture and the anomalies that truly cause dissent within the happy family. How do we reconcile different disciplinary approaches to the question?

What does a television producer or a market researcher understand by the popular? By gender I do not mean women or making space for women.

Introducing gender into culyuras discussion of the national patrimony might also have led to the question of how male and female have been significantly recoded by the media and private enterprise. The display of religious objects is monumental in contrast to the miniaturization of the hkbridas of a market scene that is just behind the Sun Stone. In the United States, hybridity is often a staging of the exotic in order to display a pluralistic happy family, although, as everyone knows, the space between the ghetto and the melting pot is occupied only hibridass baseball stars, media personalities and best-selling authors.

In the weak sense and since there have always been plunderings, borrowings and intertextuality, the task of the critic seems to be confined to the accumulation of evidence of new hybrids.

Francis Barkeretal Colchester, Essex, vol. This is evident from a photograph of the interior of the ethnology room of the Museum which shows a group of life-size figures representing an indigenous family How do we study modernity?

In Latin America, the staging of difference is perfectly compatible with integration into the global system. Hence the significance of a question posed by Nelly Richard: On the second floor the Museum offers scenes of contemporary life, represented almost entirely by life size models of indigenous groups or photographs of the indigenous.

Perhaps the central theme of cultural policies today is how to build societies with democratic projects shared by everybody without making everyone the same, societies in which dispersal is transformed into diversity and the inequalities between classes, ethnic and other groups are reduced to differences’.

This vocabulary has the advantage of demystifying culture and tearing it away from the romantic notion of creation; the disadvantage is that the economic metaphor makes it impossible to broach the problem of subjectivity. The omission of problems of subjectivity and enunciation limit the interdisciplinary potential of this book.

The trouble with the old term mestizaje was that it suggested that culture sprang naturally out of copulation. But the scene surely also illustrates the breakdown of the old categories of public and private.

Let me mention one cutluras of an analysis into which gender might have appropriately been introduced. Let me simply quote the sentence that concludes her discussion of this statue: While there is nothing particularly startling in this observation, gendering is surely significant in this representation since it is the family that can best demonstrate the official view of the unchanging continuity of private life between the remote past and the present.

Jean Franco Publicado en: But it is only the latter that undo the power of the centre. The industrial analogy is not intended to be frivolous. Beside her are two baskets filled with what looks like the leaves used for making tamales the details of the photograph are not clear.

How do we speak of modernity? Not only are indigenous groups made to seem ‘the axis of national culture’ but they are also represented as traditional.

As many critics have pointed out, however, Latin American culture has been produced by a mestizo population whose culture, though predominantly Hispanic and European, was shaped in contact with indigenous and Cultutas groups. Indeed the discussions of theories of modernity and postmodernity which are reproduced here only strengthen the impression that these words are mere props that only disguise a rather old problem – that of Latin American difference.

Whether this adds up to a more democratic culture is another matter, given that ‘there is still inequality in the appropriation of symbolic goods and in access to cannclini innovation’. One of the women, dressed in a huipil and a long skirt, kneels in the foreground, apparently tending an open fire.


What is distinctive about Latin America now.

Thus for instance Bal’s semiotic study points out that the nineteenth century statue of Queen Maya giving birth to the Buddha from her side, marks a transition between the canclnii of animals to that of foreign humans. One contemporary recodification of gender is, cultturas, graphically represented by a photograph of a group of feminists standing in front of the statue of Mexican Motherhood.

The archaeological exhibition is on the ground floor and represents the past. Clearly the imperial thrust of the Natural History Museum is not to be equated with the national narrative of the Anthropological Museum although the articulation of gender in the narrative is equally important. And not only must he make hibridad but he must also make sense: The very idea of ‘modernity 7 expressed in the title seems awkward.

How do we analyse those phenomena that are not covered by traditional categories of high or popular culture? In its weaker sense, it might simply culturs to the postmodern xulturas to use all repertoires without worrying about authenticity. This representation of the national patrimony over-looks the hybrid forms assumed by traditional ethnic groups when they come into contact with capitalist socioeconomic and cultural development’.

When one looks at this photograph, it is precisely the difference between Woman and women that is on display, the public sanctification of formally cannclini life which feminists have made a matter of public debate, emphasizing that abortion is not only a ‘woman’s question’.
