Vol 114 (2020): Special Issue. Culture on the move: Towards a minorization of cultural difference

Guest editor: Zlatan Filipovic

This Special Issue would not have been possible without the enduring effort of the contributors whose patience has been paramount to what, at times, must have seemed as an endless unfolding of revisions before we could find the right pitch and I’m indebted to all of you for your commitment and support. Special thanks also is due to the Institute for American Universities and Professor Maria Van Liew whose initiative for a conference on the topic in Barcelona 2018 provided a much appreciated catalyst for the volume. School of Education and Communication at Jönköping University and its research focus in Communication, Culture and Diversity with Professor Ylva Lindberg at the helm have also been instrumental in providing continuous suport for the project as well as my own Department of Languages and Literatures at the University of Gothenburg with its established research field in Transcultural Studies. I also owe a debt of gratitude to the editorial team at Moderna Språk and our brilliant Anna Gudmundson, above all, whose attentive eye, appreciation and tireless enthusiasm have made this volume finally see the light of day.

Most of all, however, I want to thank my awesome wife Maria and my son and daughter, Mies and Dalia Belle, whose love and joy are the foundational pillars of all my endeavours

Vol 115, No 3 (2021): Monográfico. Fantasías pornotópicas. Subjetividades deseantes en América Latina: postpornografía y pornoterrorismo

Guest editor: Ángeles Mateo Del Pino

The aim of this monograph is to interrogate and question the mechanisms of sexual production; to debate sexuality and the dominant pornography, as well as to make known other dissident representations, other desiring subjectivities. Reviewing pornographic, post-pornographic or porn-terrorist texts and images will allow us to explore, from an intersectional framework, how different categories are intertwined: gender, race, ethnicity, ability, sexuality, social class, nationality, etc. At the same time, a look towards/from Latin America will help us to draw the specificities of these spaces and their link with the immediate context. As Lucía Egaña emphasizes, postporn cannot be defined exclusively by its contents, but rather by the political processes it engenders or triggers. The modes are different, which will help us to interpret how binarism and hegemonic sexuality are embodied and deconstructed in Latin America. This will enable us to share knowledge about the latest research on culture in general and sexuality in particular.

El objetivo de este monográfico es el de interrogar y cuestionar los mecanismos de producción sexual; debatir en torno a la sexualidad y la pornografía dominante, así como dar a conocer otras representaciones disidentes, otras subjetividades deseantes. Revisar los textos y las imágenes pornográficas, postpornográficas o pornoterroristas nos permitirá explorar, desde un marco interseccional, cómo se entrelazan distintas categorías: género, raza, etnia, capacidad, sexualidad, clase social, nacionalidad, etc. A la vez que una mirada hacia/desde América Latina nos ayudará a dibujar las especificidades de esos espacios y su vinculación con el contexto inmediato. Como enfatiza Lucía Egaña, el postporno no puede ser definido exclusivamente por sus contenidos, sino más bien por los procesos políticos que engendra o desencadena. Los modos son diferentes, los que nos ayudará a interpretar cómo se encarna y deconstruye el binarismo y la sexualidad hegemónica en Latinoamérica. Todo ello nos posibilitará compartir conocimientos sobre las últimas investigaciones acerca de la cultura en general y de la sexualidad en particular.
