OSTRIA REINOSO, Olga. Another turn on Latin American identity in cultural and literary studies. Atenea (Concepc.) [online]. 2012, n.506, pp.29-42. ISSN 0718-0462.

This paper is a response to the ever present theoretical necessity to rethink the categories that seek to interpret sociocultural phenomena through literary works, specially the category of Latin American cultural identity. In order to accomplish this, an historization of the term is carried out consisting of a tour through the semantic uses and transformations that it has passed through over time in an effort to respect the specificity of the environments of refection that are called up by this type of study, as well as -and especially- for recovering the critical analytical possibilities of the concept. In this spirit, the paper offers a theoretical-methodological context to literary-cultural research that day by day updates the notion of identity and the debates around it.

Palabras clave : Latin American cultural identity; analytical categories; literary criticism; Cultural Studies; otherness.
