NEW ERA FOR GUYANA: OIL, BORDERS AND RELATIONS WITH THE USA

It is not often that Guyana (population: 800,000; area: 83,000 square miles), the small English-speaking country perched on the South American continent, makes the pages of the Washington Post, but with the recent appointment of Rex Tillerson as the new US Secretary of State, there has been some specula-tion in the Post regarding his links to his former company, ExxonMobil, the company’s oil exploration in Guyanese waters, and his attitude to Venezuela.
In his presentation, Dr. Riyad Insanally, Ambassador of Guyana to the USA, will seek to address a few misconceptions arising in the media and put in per-spective the quest for oil and the prospects for economic transformation in Guyana, against the backdrop of the existential threats posed by Venezuela’s spurious claim to two-thirds of Guyana’s land territory and most of Guyana’s maritime space.

Dinámicas de la narración factual y ficcional en las letras coloniales: Naufragios [1542] de Alvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca e Infortunios de Alonso Ramírez [1690] de Carlos de Sigüenza y Góngora

Este trabajo se constituye a partir de una proposición literariamente admisible: la presencia de narrativas en el periodo Colonial frente a la común e intemperante pregunta: ¿Por qué no se produjo novela durante los trescientos años de la colonia? Con la afirmación de estas narrativas, trataremos un conjunto de obras que se producen en la etapa de formación colonial. Este contexto marcado por el proceso de constitución de la conciencia criolla, es coherente con toda narración inscrita en Libros de viajes, Relaciones, Crónicas, conformando —en el periodo Colonial— la hegemonía del discurso factual sobre el discurso ficcional, en textos que representan no solo las transformaciones del sujeto español indiano, sino también la emergente subjetividad criolla que caracteriza la nueva cultura y su relación con el mundo indígena. Para efectos del corpus narrativo, este trabajo propone esta primera etapa Colonial, incorporando dos obras desafectadas de la preocupación de los estudios literarios e historiográficos: 1) Naufragios [1542] de Alvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca. 2) Infortunios de Alonso Ramírez [1690] de Carlos de Sigüenza y Góngora. Estas narrativas factuales enmascararon las estrategias ficcionales, que después se incorporarán con toda propiedad, a las prácticas y técnicas que caracterizarán las Literaturas de América.

El Negro Raúl: Lives and Afterlives of an Afro-Argentine Celebrity (1886-Present)

Abstract
Ideas about race are always a set of narratives about who people are and are not. Sometimes these narratives take the form of classic stories with fixed characters, plots, and morals, and are passed on across generations and in multiple genres. The stories surrounding “el Negro Raúl,” an Afro-Argentine man who rose to fame in early twentieth-century Buenos Aires, illuminate the special power of narrative to shape racial attitudes. Raúl’s life and semi-fictional afterlives, which commentators construed as oddities in a homogeneously white nation, also shed light on the construction and meanings of dominant racial ideologies in Argentina since the early 1900s.
Paula Alberto is the author of Terms of Inclusion: Black Intellectuals in Twentieth-Century Brazil (University of North Carolina Press, 2011) and co-editor, with Eduardo Elena, of Rethinking Race in Modern Argentina (Cambridge University Press, 2016).
