Bibliometric techniques were used to compose a corpus of 117 papers from the <em>Scopus</em> database, analyzed in two dimensions. In the editorial dimension, annual production by country and most prevalent languages and journals were analyzed and in the epistemological dimension the most cited authors, word co-occurrence and collaborations were analyzed. Results of the study show that the growth in publications is unmatched by the impact of this production suggesting a lack of ecology of knowledges and epistemologies of the South in Latin America, thus reinforcing the <em>status quo</em> and reverberation of theories produced outside the ecosystem of the South.</p> 2023-06-09T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Decolonial research, languages and practices in/with education 2023-09-18T11:08:41+02:00 Gilberto Ferreira da Silva Juliana Aquino Machado <p>The present study, of an essayistic nature, discusses the relations between science, research, languages, and practices as an experience in and with education. Initially, it proposes a reflection about the crossings between a colonized life and a decolonial posture. In the second moment, it highlights a decolonial way of doing as a possibility, placing itself in dialogue with other knowledges, from where research postures emerge that are capable of leading the production of knowledge on other bases, distancing itself from the modern western hegemonic model. Finally, when thinking of other ways of researching and producing knowledge, the experimentation of new/other ways of writing and expressing experiences in education is concretized in an effort to search for coherence, which reveals the meaning between what is said, from where it is said, and what is done and with whom.</p> 2024-04-18T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 The failure of indigenous settlements in the Captaincy of Goiás 2022-10-10T09:13:37+02:00 PatríciaEmanuelle Nascimento Elias Nazareno Stephen Grant Baines <p>In this article, we address an unprecedented discussion about the indigenous settlements in the Captaincy of Goiás, a Midwestern state of Brazil. It is an analysis of the failure of these colonial spaces, analyzed from a decolonial perspective which draws attention to indigenous strategies and actions as a relevant factor for such an unfolding. As the many years of coloniality have promoted a silencing of indigenous decolonial actions, there is a need to rewrite the history of contact relations in order to repair invisibilities and highlight the various forms of indigenous actions taken. The methodological-theoretical framework used here is based on the Latin American school of thought Modernity/Coloniality.</p> 2023-12-15T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Water scarcity and social conflict 2023-10-02T18:53:36+02:00 Nubia Nieto <p>Climate change is an issue that has consequences all over the world. One of the most severe is the water scarcity that is causing migrations, loss of biodiversity, illness, increases in mortality, food availability, economic decline, social and political conflicts. Underdeveloped countries are more likely to suffer the consequences of this issue, particularly in Latin America. The present text aims to shine a light on water shortage in Mexico, taking as a case study a community located in the south of Mexico City, named San Gregorio Atlapulco, where myths and traditions are combined to protect this vital resource. Social conflict, political confrontation and State repression are part of the Mexican landscape caused by water shortage.</p> 2023-12-15T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 De exilio de la patria al exilio del ‘ser’ Desterritorialización y desemiotización del emigrado-exiliado 2023-05-01T17:55:49+02:00 Claudio Cifuentes-Aldunate <p>The present study proposes an analysis of the subject of exile represented in literature and film within the Hispanic culture. We consider the symbolic character of exile and de-exile, as well as the different ways of living the ‘exile experience’. This is materialized in an ad hoc narrative path or process that draws the sequence of exile. We show different ways of assuming this trauma, and how this produces different modalities of subject.</p> 2023-12-15T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 El fanzine argentino Resistencia Contra-archivo de una interseccionalidad punk 2023-04-26T13:44:20+02:00 Hasan Karakilinc <p>The fanzine Resistencia, began to be published in Buenos Aires in December 1984, a year after Argentina’s return to democracy. The fanzine served as the main tool for spreading punk radicality for over a decade alongside pamphlets and the lyrical corpus produced by the Buenos Aires punk scene’s participants. The relevance of Resistencia, as a genuine cultural counter-archive, lies in its critical content and proposals for sociopolitical change framed by radical discourses. Stemming from the raw social nihilism inherited from its early phase during the military dictatorship, the punk scene becomes increasingly politicized through discourses fueled by anarchism. In addition to criticizing repressive practices that linger from the dictatorship, Resistencia progressively sought to articulate a focus on intersectional struggle, intertwining feminism, anti-racism, anti-homophobia, environmentalism, and anti-speciesism to provide readers with a more holistic view of systems of domination. Based on an analysis of the fanzine Resistencia, this article highlights the processes of ideological transformation and the embodiment of intersectional discourses in a context marked by the resurgence of democracy and the ghosts of the military dictatorship.</p> 2023-12-15T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 El desarrollo de una metodología híbrida para el estudio de las prácticas comunicativas en las regiones fronterizas de América del Sur 2023-05-30T11:56:53+02:00 Jonathan Mastai Husum <p>When we as new researchers embark on our first field research stay, we often face the challenge of bridging the gap between the project’s research design and the practical fieldwork. Drawing from my experiences in collecting data for my doctoral project, this article emphasizes the adaptability needed to adjust research designs as new knowledge emerges. More specifically, it also caters to those interested in conducting qualitative sociolinguistic research to gather data on the usage of contact languages. This article sheds light on my research design, primarily focusing on empirical data collection related to communicative practices in South American Portuñol and other languages in five border regions. It argues that the effective study of Portuñol practices across diverse borders requires consistent data collection methods that promote triangulation. Proposed methods are sociolinguistic interviews, documenting the linguistic landscape, and analysing official documents to comprehensively understand the regions’ diverse sociolinguistic behaviors.</p> 2023-12-15T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 ‘Las masas revolucionadas de esperanza’ Esperanza como palabra clave cultural en el contexto político y social latinoamericano 2023-05-01T16:04:43+02:00 Susana Silvia Fernández Ana Paulla Braga Mattos <p>The terms esperanza (Spanish) and esperança (Portuguese) (‘hope’) are frequently used in the political and social discourse of Latin America. In this vast region, plagued by recurring political and economic crises, among other challenges, the feeling of hope is present in the media, social networks, the speech of politicians and other public figures, as well as in the urban landscape. It represents the spirit of people who are not willing to give up a better future. For this reason, we propose that the terms esperanza/esperança can be considered cultural keywords in Latin America.<br />In Fernández y Mattos (2022) we carried out a corpus study of the use of esperanza/esperança based on Twitter data from two Latin American countries, Argentina and Brazil. Our results confirmed our hypothesis about the centrality of the feeling of hope in the studied area. In this article, we complete our analysis with data from Mexico, Venezuela and, to a lesser extent, Peru, to find out whether the findings from Argentina and Brazil also apply to these other Latin American countries and possibly to the whole area.</p> 2023-12-15T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Latin America: a view from Scandinavia 2023-11-16T17:14:43+01:00 Susana Silvia Fernández 2023-12-15T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023
