  • Literatura e Historia: testimonios y negaciones. Modos de significar el desborde y operaciones de exclusión.
    Vol. 25 No. 1 (2021)

    Los trabajos que se presentan en esta mesa redonda cuestionan, desde el análisis de producciones literarias específicas, los modos de representación de la realidad nacional con que los discursos oficiales escribieron su historia. Las nociones de desborde (Matos Mar, 2004) y negación (Kusch, 1975) en su relación dialéctica de oposición, contraste y tensión, estructuran las hipótesis de sentido que progresan, de manera fundamentada y certera, a lo largo de las investigaciones. De este modo, se hace evidente la manera en que el discurso historiográfico se asienta sobre parcialidades ideológicas que generan subalternidades. Sin embargo, por medio de una revisión atenta, concretamente desde la literatura y su específica habilidad de recrear imaginarios sociales, podríamos apropiarnos de los sentidos subliminales, de las voces silenciadas y de las identidades marginales que en ese espacio circulan.

  • History and international relations in the Guyana Region
    Vol. 24 No. 2 (2020)

    We are pleased to present the Dossier “History and international relations in the Guyana Region”: the result of a collective effort and a long process of work that culminates in the launch of this edition, comprising a total of eight articles and an interview that brings considerable contributions on the Guyana region studies. The region's plurality and historical complexity are, in this Dossier, addressed by academics of History, Anthropology, Political Science, Literature and Geography.

  • International, transcontinental and intrarregional human mobilities: biopower, migrant strategies, and representations (19th to 21st centuries)
    Vol. 24 No. 1 (2020)

    This dossier emerges as an initiative of its coordinators and editors –Lai Sai Acón Chan and Ronald Soto-Quirós– who are interested in international migrations and collaborate jointly on a project to recover the historical memory of Chinese migrations in Costa Rica (PREMEHCHI for its acronym in Spanish). This project is led by an international multidisciplinary team of researchers from the University of Costa Rica, the UNED (Costa Rica), the multidisciplinary team on Latin America and the Iberian Peninsula of the Université Bordeaux Montaigne (Bordeaux, France) and the University of Minnesota Morris. PREMEHCHI is based at the University of Costa Rica (San José, Costa Rica)[1].

    The dossier of this issue of Diálogos, a journal of the Department of History and the Graduate Program in History of the State University of Maringá (UEM) is a first effort to publish bilingual versions of the same article ​​(English and Spanish or Portuguese) in order to achieve greater internationalization and facilitate the dissemination of knowledge. In this particular case, the dossier focuses on the phenomenon of international migration –or international human mobility – addressed from the perspective of scholars specializing in a wide array of disciplines (history, sociology, political science, cultural studies, cinema, and others), from different geographical locations (Costa Rica, Honduras, United States, France and Spain) and in a wide chronological span (XIX-XXI centuries).

    In this sense, our dossier is organized in four main axes. The first axis is concerned about historical cases of human mobilities considered as international transcontinental diasporas, their relationship with biopower devices, the different strategies of individuals in receiving countries and the representations that were generated around migrant individuals or populations. A second part analyzes human mobilities and their incidence and relationship in the generation of identity, national and homogenizing narratives and the possible institutional biopolitical control tools that are generated. A third section of the dossier specifically addresses the issue of continental intraregional human mobility with historical interpretation, but highlighting very contemporary cases, thus official speeches, biopower mechanisms and subjectivities involved are re-analyzed. Finally, the last section focuses on representations in the visual arts (film and television) of different types of human mobility and in very diverse geographical and chronological spaces.

  • Dossiê: História, cidadania e direitos humanos
    Vol. 23 No. 3 (2019)

    A história da América Latina e, especialmente, dos países do Cone Sul, é eivada de traços autoritários e de desrespeito aos direitos humanos. Mas, diante deste histórico autoritário, com lutas e resistências, as sociedades latino-americanas vão construindo a sua cidadania, consolidando e ampliando os seus direitos fundamentais e fortalecendo a democracia. Não, sem solavancos, evidentemente. Vejam o caso do Brasil atual. E são esses solavancos que nos impelem a problematizar e pesquisar o tema da cidadania e dos direitos humanos. Estudar e defender os direitos humanos são uma vital necessidade da sociedade atual, como também o é defender o Estado Democrático de Direito, nesta luta incessante pela democracia e pela cidadania.
    As pesquisas aqui apresentadas vão ao encontro destas inquietações. Neste dossiê são dez artigos. Três de pesquisadores argentinos e sete de pesquisadores brasileiros. Mas todos dialogando entre os temas e as questões apresentadas. A ordem dos artigos, quando possível, foi organizada cronologicamente.
