Description - Foucault and Latin America by Benigno Trigo

Michel Foucault's theories have played a powerful role in the intellectual life of Latin America. Within Latin American studies such concepts as the consciousness of the intellectual elite (letrados), the archive novel, the foundational fiction and self-writing - all indebted to Foucault - are now the common currency of critical analysis. Foucault and Latin America is the first volume to trace the influence of Foucault's theories on power, discourse, government, subjectivity and sexuality in Latin American thought. The essays gathered in this collection by fifteen prominent scholars of Latin America examine the relation between Foucault's work and an expansive range of topics, from the performance art of Guillermo Gomez Pena and the novels of Julia Alvarez to Cuban nationalism and the colonizing role of medicine.
