      For a Critique of Transatlantic Mestiza Territoriality: Challenging the Angolan-Cuban Revolutionary Community. (English)
    • Abstract:
      This essay presents the transatlantic confluence of two hegemonic cultural traditions; the ideology of mestizaje and lusotropicalismo in the discourses of the Angolan and Cuban socialist regimes. The shared political utopia during the Angolan Civil War envisioned a South-South community, racially homogeneous. In the last part of the essay I review the works Dulces guerreros cubanos (1999) by Norberto Fuentes, Desconfiemos de los amaneceres apacibles (2011) by Emilio Comas Paret, Geração da Utopía (1992) by Pepetela, and Estação das Chuvas (1996) by José Eduardo Agualusa, in order to demonstrate socio-racial conflicts embedded in the leftist armed struggle. These narratives challenge the homogeneity of official discourses about identity that sustained the transatlantic mestiza territoriality. In doing so, they note a historical continuity of inequality and authoritarianism between colonial and postcolonial, between pre-national and revolutionary nation. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
    • Abstract:
      Este ensayo expone la confluencia trasatlántica de dos tradiciones culturales hegemónicas; la ideología del mestizaje y la lusotropicalista en los discursos de los regímenes socialistas angolano y cubano. La utopía política compartida durante la guerra civil angolana imaginó una comunidad Sur-Sur racialmente homogénea. En la última parte reviso las obras Dulces guerreros cubanos (1999) de Norberto Fuentes, Desconfiemos de los amaneceres apacibles (2011) de Emilio Comas Paret, Geração da Utopía (1992) de Pepetela y Estação das Chuvas (1996) de José Eduardo Agualusa para demostrar la conflictividad en el entramado socio-racial de la lucha armada izquierdista. Estas narraciones impugnan la homogeneidad de los discursos de identidad oficiales sobre los cuales se sostenía la territorialidad mestiza trasatlántica. Al hacerlo advierten una continuidad histórica de desigualdad y autoritarismo entre lo colonial y lo postcolonial, entre lo prenacional y la nación revolucionaria. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
