Abstract

This article examines Jewish-Argentine filmmaker and writer Edgardo Cozarinsky’s short story collection Tres fronteras (2006) from the point of view of cosmopolitan theory. Through the analysis of the expatriate author’s strategies of decentering, juxtaposing, and crossing spaces and discourses it explores how Cozarinsky creates an “eccentric” perspective that reorganizes global maps by revealing secret affinities and connections between locations as diverse as Paris, Buenos Aires, Istanbul, and Foz de Iguaçú. The article argues that Cozarinsky’s short stories both revisit and reframe cosmopolitan aesthetics, contributing not only to a cosmopolitanism from Latin America, but also to a multiplication of perspectives and sites of belonging in the context of globalization.
