The lectures that we will present can be formulated on three forms: as an audio lecture, as a graphic scheme, and/or as a combination of both. Further or complementary readings will be avoided, however some lectures might be dedicated to a particular author, theory or subject.

The Ingaramo's Perspective (2005). The general hypothesis of the lecture is that the literary activities in peripherical societies cannot be explained and interpreted in the classical self-referential way, that is, for example, that “River Plate literature” can only be interpreted in epistemological terms when approached as part of the field of cultural production. More specifically the paper will propose that Elias Ingaramos’s works were designed having this previous hypothesis as their general assumption. A strategy which we will call “Ingaramo’s Perspective”, in the sense that, in our view, it constitutes one of the few literary and writing approaches to follow the example offered, differing radically from the borgesian attitude which has largely dominated the last 50 years of the River Plate cultural activities. The material of The Ingaramo's Perspective is in English and the file in PDF format.
Latin American Cinema
We have been working on the idea of how 'Latin America' is a phenomenon that has been constructed through cinema and movies. Rather than considering the 'content' of the film we are interestd in how the movie is constructed and how cinema is working in terms of symbolic values and financial market.
Argentinian Culture at the End of the XXth Century
How the notions of culture and understanding are constructed from movies and from cinematography is the aim of the lectures dedicated to the subject.
General Approach to Cinema
The great majority of the so-called 'Film Studies' approaches to movies and cinematography is a basic translation of literature methodologies to the movies' plot. In this sense the oversimplification of sociological, political or filosofical issues came from the fact that they are considered as elements of the plot and nothing more.
