This volume provides an innovative and timely approach to a fast growing, yet still under-studied field in Latin American cultural production: digital online culture. It focuses on the transformations or continuations that cultural products and practices such as hypermedia fictions, net.art and online performance art, as well as blogs, films, databases and other genre-defying web-based projects, perform with respect to Latin American(ist) discourses, as well as their often contestatory positioning with respect to Western hegemonic discourses as they circulate online. The intellectual rationale for the volume is located at the crossroads of two, equally important, theoretical strands: theories of digital culture, in their majority the product of the anglophone academy; and contemporary debates on Latin American identity and culture.

Feministische und queere Theorien sind mit ganz besonderen Figuren ausgestaltet: die »Sister« der zweiten Frauenbewegung, die »Cyborg« von Donna Haraway, das »Nomadic Subject« von Rosi Braidotti, die »New Mestiza« von Gloria Anzaldúa und die »Drag« von Judith Butler. Welche Funktionen erfüllen Begriffspersonen innerhalb von Genderdiskursen? Welche Wirkungen haben sie auf Leser_innen und Denker_innen? Und vor allem: Wo liegen die Potenziale dieser Figuren für Denken, Erkennen und politisches Handeln? Kirstin Mertlitsch zeigt auf, welche wissenschaftlichen Theorien und Schlüsselkonzepte queer-feministische Begriffspersonen verkörpern und ausagieren. Sie analysiert erstmals, in welchen rationalen, emotional-affektiven und körperlich-materiellen Dimensionen Wissen vermittelt und Erkenntnisprozesse ermöglicht werden.

This highly-innovative volume provides the first sustained academic focus on cyberliterature and cyberculture in Latin America, investigating the ways in which this form of cultural production is providing new configurations of subjects, narrative voices, and even political agency. Despite cyberculture’s spread throughout the Hispanic diaspora, much of the influence of this new discipline on Latin American culture remains undocumented. This timely volume focuses on the inclusivity of this new scholarship and provides extensive geographical coverage of topics as diverse as Chicano border writing and Brazilian and Argentine cybercultural phenomena.

Signifying "others" or signs of life? This book critically examines the ways in which crossing sex and gender is imagined in key cultural texts from contemporary Latin America. Unlike previous studies, Crossing Sex and Gender in Latin America does not hold that sexually diverse figures are always and only performative or allegorical and instead places the accent on questions of the presence or absence of an account of subjectivity in contemporary representation. Via analysis of selected films and literary works of Reinaldo Arenas, Mayra Santos-Febres, Pedro Lemebel, among others, the author reflects on the political implications of recent visions (1985-2005).
