Acosta, Santiago. “Posthegemonía y postsubalternidad: Desencuentros del latinoamericanismo frente a la ‘marea rosada.’” Cuadernos de Literatura, vol. XX, no. 39, 2016, pp. 28-40.
In this article I contrast the posthegemonic theory of Jon Beasley-Murray with John Beverley’s postsubaltern paradigm. I study these author's stances on the problems of the state and the nation vis-à-vis the claims made by Latin American social movements, which have become increasingly enmeshed with the structures of the state in the context of the so-called “pink tide.” I do not lose track of the specificity of the Venezuelan context, since it seems to work as a limit case for the theoretical premises of both posthegemony and postsubalternity.
