Whether this adds up to a more democratic culture is another matter, given that ‘there is still inequality in the appropriation of symbolic goods and in access to cultural innovation’. The subjectivities constituted in this new world order are gendered and mobile.

How do we speak of modernity?

And not only must he make notes but he must also make sense: But it is only the latter that undo the power of the centre. What does a television producer or a market researcher understand by the popular? Beside her are two baskets filled with what looks like the leaves used for making tamales the details of the photograph are not clear.

Let me cultufas quote the sentence that concludes her discussion of this statue: Jean Franco Publicado en: Not only are indigenous groups made to seem ‘the axis of national culture’ canflini they are also represented as traditional. How do we study modernity? Gender is not a woman’s problem but an essential category of analysis. Hybridity-as-difference is too indiscriminate to ac-count for both the vernaculars of global culture and the anomalies that truly cause dissent within the happy family.

This vocabulary has the advantage of demystifying culture and tearing it away from the romantic notion of creation; the disadvantage is that the economic metaphor makes it impossible to broach the problem of subjectivity. Finally the big question: In the weak sense and since there have always been plunderings, borrowings and intertextuality, the task of the critic seems to be confined to the accumulation of evidence of new hybrids. Thus for instance Bal’s semiotic study points out that the nineteenth century statue of Queen Maya giving birth to the Buddha from her side, marks a transition between the exhibition of animals to that of foreign humans.


His Culturas populares en el capitalismo was a real breakthrough in that it described artisan production and fiestas not as survivals or degenerate remnants of a once authentic culture but as immensely variable relations to the market, to national culture and to local history.

As many critics have pointed out, however, Latin Hibdidas culture has been produced by a mestizo population whose culture, though cahclini Hispanic and European, was shaped in contact with indigenous and African-American groups. Clearly the imperial thrust of the Natural History Museum is not to be equated with the national narrative of the Anthropological Museum although the articulation of gender in the narrative is equally important.

Introducing gender into a discussion of the national patrimony might also have led to the question of how male and female have been significantly recoded by the media and private enterprise. Narratives of the Miniature, the Gigantic, the Souvenir, the Collection. This representation of the national patrimony over-looks the hybrid forms assumed by traditional ethnic groups when they come into contact with capitalist socioeconomic and cultural development’.

This is evident from a photograph of the interior of the ethnology room of the Museum culturss shows a group of life-size figures representing an hibridae family In its weaker sense, it culfuras simply refer to the postmodern permission to use all repertoires without worrying about authenticity.

Francis Barkeretal Colchester, Essex, vol. Perhaps the central theme of cultural policies today cultueas how to build societies with democratic projects shared by everybody without making everyone the same, societies in which dispersal is transformed into bibridas and the inequalities between classes, ethnic and other canclni are reduced to differences’. In the United States, hybridity is often a staging of the exotic in order to display a pluralistic hirbidas family, although, as everyone knows, the space between the ghetto and the melting pot is occupied only by baseball stars, media personalities and best-selling authors.

The omission of problems of subjectivity and enunciation limit the interdisciplinary potential of this book. How does one study the millions of indigenous people and peasants who migrate to major cities or the workers who are incorporated into the industrial organization of work and consumption?


One of the women, dressed in a huipil and a long skirt, kneels culturs the foreground, apparently tending an open fire. The book found a way out of the false dichotomies of tradition or modernity, artisan products or art.

How do we analyse those phenomena that are not covered by traditional categories of high or popular culture? Hybridity is a botanical metaphor closely linked therefore to the notion of culture as cultivation, but it has some of the same problems as mestizaje. The archaeological exhibition is on the ground floor and represents the past. On the second floor the Museum offers scenes of contemporary life, represented almost entirely by hibrdas size models of indigenous groups or photographs of the indigenous.

The industrial analogy is not intended to be frivolous. The nation publicly sanctified motherhood; the women’s movement is now forced to make public what the placid face of motherhood conceals – the death toll of illegal abortions which is often the only form of contraception available to poo’r women.

Hence the significance of a question posed by Nelly Richard: But the scene surely also illustrates the breakdown of the old categories of public and private. The display of religious objects is monumental in contrast to the miniaturization of the reproduction of a market scene that is just behind the Sun Stone. One contemporary recodification of gender is, indeed, graphically represented by a photograph of a group of feminists standing in front of the statue of Mexican Motherhood.

When one looks at this photograph, it is precisely the difference between Woman and women that is on display, the public sanctification of formally private life hibriads feminists have made a matter of public debate, emphasizing that abortion is not only a ‘woman’s question’.

The very idea of ‘modernity 7 expressed in the title seems awkward. The trouble with the old term mestizaje was that it suggested cancluni culture sprang naturally out of copulation.
