Cartographic Mexico by Raymond B. Craib

Cartographic Mexico: A History of State Fixations and Fugitive Landscapes (Latin America Otherwise) by Raymond B. Craib
Requirements: .PDF reader, 2.4 MB
Overview: In Cartographic Mexico, Raymond B. Craib analyzes the powerful role cartographic routines such as exploration, surveying, and mapmaking played in the creation of the modern Mexican state in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Such routines were part of a federal obsession-or “state fixation”-with determining and “fixing” geographic points, lines, and names in order to facilitate economic development and political administration. As well as analyzing the maps that resulted from such routines, Craib examines in close detail the processes that eventually generated them. Taking central Veracruz as a case in point, he shows how in the field, agrarian officials, military surveyors, and metropolitan geographers traversed a “fugitive landscape” of overlapping jurisdictions and use rights, ambiguous borders, shifting place names, and villagers with their own conceptions of history and territory.

Brouhaha by Lionel Ruffel , Raymond N. MacKenzie

Brouhaha: Worlds of the Contemporary (Univocal) by Lionel Ruffel , Raymond N. MacKenzie
Requirements: .PDF reader, 2,1 Mb
Overview: Within the hypermediated age where knowledge production is decentered and horizontal, the experience of lived time has become a concordance of temporalities. The literary imagination, which was emblematic of modernity and thoroughly connected to the book as a support structure, has now become integrated within a much vaster regime of publication. Thought concerning the world is from now on a thought concerning a plurality of worlds.

By way of six guiding threads (exposition, media, controversy, publication, institutionalization, archaeology), this essay describes the transformation of cultural forms and visions of history.
