Dante Jose' Liano

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[Autom. eng. transl.] The article tries to follow an itinerary about the ideas of culture and identity in Latin America. In particular, in Guatemala. It begins with the pessimistic vision of Cardoza and Aragón and this leads him to examine the question of exile in different Guatemalan authors, from Rafael Landívar to Franz Galich. From these examples, open a parenthesis to remember the main theories of miscegenation, from Sarmiento and Engineers to arrive at the ideology of indigenismo, whose corollary is miscegenation. He concludes by pointing out how this has also been put into discussion and points out the difficulty of building a national culture.
