  • "Beloved Enemies": Race and Official Mestizo Nationalism in Nicaragua

    Subject Headings:
    • Nationalism -- Nicaragua.
    • Nicaragua -- Race relations.
    • Multiculturalism -- Nicaragua.
    Abstract:
      This article analyzes the persistence of an official discourse of mestizo nationalism in Nicaragua in spite of the adoption of multicultural citizenship rights for black and indigenous costeños in 1986. These reforms appeared to directly contradict key premises of previously dominant nationalist ideologies, particularly the idea that Nicaragua was a uniformly mestizo nation. Instead of a radical break with the past, however, what we find in contemporary Nicaragua is a continuous process of negotiation and contestation among three variants of official mestizo nationalism: vanguardismo, Sandinismo, and "mestizo multiculturalism" that emerged in the 1930s, 1960s, and 1990s respectively. This article traces the continuities among these disparate but intimately related accounts of national history and identity and the way they all operate to limit the political inclusion of black and indigenous costeños as such.
    Resumen:
      Este artículo analiza la persistencia de un nacionalismo oficial mestizo en Nicaragua a pesar de la adopción de derechos ciudadanos multiculturales para costeños afro-descendientes e indígenas en 1986. Estas reformas constitucionales aparentan contradecir directamente premisas claves de ideologías nacionalistas previamente dominantes, en particular la idea de Nicaragua como una nación uniformemente mestiza. Pero en vez de una radical ruptura con el pasado, este artículo argumenta que lo que se divisa actualmente en Nicaragua es un proceso constante de negociación y contienda entre tres modalidades del nacionalismo oficial mestizo: el vanguardismo, Sandinismo, y lo que yo llamo "multiculturalismo mestizo" que surgieron en las décadas de 1930, 1960, y 1990 respectivamente. Este artículo traza las continuidades entre estos divergentes pero íntimamente relacionados relatos sobre la identidad e historia nicaragüenses, y la manera en la cual todos funcionan para limitar la plena inclusión política de costeños afro-descendientes e indígenas como tales.

  • Nontraditional or New Traditional Exports: Ecuador's Flower Boom

    • Cut flower industry -- Ecuador.
    • Ecuador -- Commerce.
    • Ecuador -- Economic policy.
    • Comparative advantage (International trade)
    Abstract:
      This article explores the sources of Ecuador's boom in flower exports since the late 1980s. In that boom, fresh cut flower exports rose from almost nothing to 9 percent of the country's nonpetroleum export earnings. This research addresses whether trade liberalization and macroeconomic reforms played a decisive role in stimulating the export boom or whether changes in the global flower market created Ecuador's comparative advantage in flower exports independent of the policy regime. The article surveys the many changes in economic policy toward agriculture in general, flower cultivation, nontraditional exports, international trade, and macroeconomic stability. Growth rates in traditional and nontraditional exports are examined to see if they correlate with changes in key policies. The article also examines how the restructuring of the global flower market affected Ecuador's floriculture industry.
    Resumen:
      Este artículo explora el origen del auge de la exportación de flores del Ecuador desde los últimos años de la década del 80. En este auge, las exportaciones de flores frescas crecieron hasta constituir un 9 por ciento de las ganancias de las exportaciones no petroleras. Esta investigación se propone examinar si la liberalización del comercio y las reformas macroeconómicas jugaron un papel decisivo en el impulso del auge exportador, ó si cambios en el mercado internacional de flores crearon la ventaja comparativa del Ecuador independientemente del régimen de las políticas económicas. Este artículo examina la gran cantidad de cambios en la política económica hacia el sector agricultor en general, en el cultivo de las flores, en las exportaciones no tradicionales, en el comercio internacional y en la estabilidad macroeconómica. A su vez, se examina el ritmo de crecimiento de las exportaciones tradicionales y no tradicionales para determinar si ambos se correlacionan con los cambios en políticas claves. Por último, este artículo también examina de qué manera la reestructuración del mercado internacional de flores afectó la industria de la floricultura ecuatoriana.

  • Violence and Difference in Gabriela Mistral's Short Stories (1904-1911)

    • Mistral, Gabriela, 1889-1957 -- Criticism and interpretation.
    • Violence in literature.
    • Man-woman relationships in literature.
    • Sex differences in literature.
    Abstract:
      Gabriela Mistral's uncharacteristic short stories, which she began writing at the age of fourteen, demonstrate the Chilean poet's need to express violence through the brief narrative genre. Mistral wrote six short stories and in all of them she blurs the boundaries between gender and violence. For the sexes to be defined, Mistral seems to use violence as a means to distinguish them. When women suffer through men's actions, both gender performances become more pronounced and defined: women and men exist precisely because of men's harmful actions. A shift of perspective and agency occurs when men fail to recognize their own behavior and blame women for their fate. Both sexes lose their subjectivity (or sexuality) and become so intertwined that their differences are no longer perceptible. The two stories analyzed in this essay are the first story Mistral wrote, "El perdón de una víctima" and her last, "El rival." In both, Mistral demonstrates her wariness to define a norm for heterosexual relationships, while at the same time, she attempts to discern female difference.
    Resumen:
      Poco o nada se sabe de los cuentos de la obra mistraliana. De 1904 a 1911, Gabriela Mistral escribió seis cuentos que tienen como enlace el dolor y el desencuentro que existen en las relaciones amorosas entre hombres y mujeres. Estas primeras publicaciones se destacan por su énfasis en delinear las diferencias entre los géneros, empleando la violencia como un modo de distanciar las mujeres de los hombres y al mismo tiempo de destacar las imposibilidades de tener un verdadero amor heterosexual. De igual modo, Mistral trata de cuestionar la división entre los papeles sexuales a través de la violencia del protagonista masculino. Los hombres y mujeres existen a través de la violencia, y cuando ésto se refuta, las diferencias sexuales entre los géneros se mezclan y se borran. Los dos cuentos analizados aquí, "El perdón de una víctima" y "El rival" demuestran al lector cómo Mistral establece una estrategia discursiva para comprender principalmente al sexo femenino.

  • From Structuralism to the New Institutional Economics: A Half Century of Latin American Economic Historiography
    [Access article in HTML] [Access article in PDF]
    Subject Headings:
    • Latin America -- Economic conditions -- Historiography.
    Abstract:
      The following three articles, together with this brief introduction, review the consequences of the paradigm shift in Latin American economic historiography from structuralism to the New Institutional Economics (NIE). Joseph Love analyzes the basic tenets of structuralism, their connection to dependency, the influence of CEPAL on policymaking, and how a generation of historians utilized the methodologies of structuralism to research historical problems in Latin American development. John H. Coatsworth's contribution correlates the decline of the structuralist model to the rise of research interests in the role of institutions in economic history and examines the latest long-range comparisons of productivity between the Latin American and U.S. economies. Commenting on the recent research utilizing the NIE, Coatsworth agrees with Love that the relative economic stagnation of the past quarter century may not render structuralism entirely irrelevant. Sandra Kuntz Ficker summarizes the basic positions held by the structuralist and dependentista schools with respect to commercial policy and concludes with a discussion of how the NIE contributes to innovative research on Latin American foreign trade. These articles resulted from the authors' participation in a LARR-sponsored panel at the 2004 Latin American Studies Association Congress.
    Resumen:
      Los siguientes tres artículos, junto a esta breve introducción, repasan las consecuencias que el cambio de paradigma del estructuralismo a la Nueva Economía Institucional (NEI) han producido en la historiografía económica de América Latina. Joseph Love analiza los principios básicos del estructuralismo, su conexión con la teoría de la dependencia, la influencia de la CEPAL en la toma de decisiones políticas y cómo una generación de historiadores utilizó las metodologías del estructuralismo para indagar los problemas históricos del desarrollo latinoamericano. En su contribución, John H. Coatsworth relaciona el declive del modelo estructuralista con el aumento del interés académico por el rol que las instituciones tuvieron en el desarrollo de la historia económica, y examina las más recientes comparaciones de la productividad de largo plazo de las economías latino y norteamericanas. Coatsworth coincide con Love en su visión sobre los más recientes análisis que emplean la perspectiva de la NEI, en cuanto a que el relativo estancamiento de la economía durante el último cuarto de siglo no deja al estructuralismo en una posición irrelevante. Sandra Kuntz Ficker resume las posturas de las escuelas estructuralista y dependentista con respecto a las políticas comerciales, y concluye con una discusión acerca de la innovación que la NEI ha generado en la investigación sobre el comercio internacional latinoamericano. Estos artículos se originaron en la participación de estos autores en el foro organizado por LARR en el XXV Congreso Internacional de LASA de 2004.
