« Sans le latin, sans le latin, la messe nous emmerde » chantait Georges Brassens. Après lui, malheureusement, l’ennui a gagné du terrain, à commencer par celui de l’école, au point que c’est le sens même de notre langue qui finit par se perdre.
Le latin est la langue mère du français et la conscience culturelle de l’Europe. Que goûter de la culture, que comprendre de l’histoire, que savoir de la science et de son évolution, si l’on renie cette filiation? …

The Latin language has been the one constant in the cultural history of the West for more than two millennia. It has defined the way in which we express our thoughts, our faith, and our knowledge of how the world functions, its use echoing on in the law codes of half the world, in the terminologies of modern science, and, until forty years ago, in the liturgy of the Catholic Church. …

North-South University Research Partnerships in Latin America and the Caribbean by Gustavo Gregorutti
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 322 Pages | ISBN : 3319753630 | 5.22 MB

This volume examines research productivity within schools in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) and presents examples of various successful LAC North-South programs which have propelled university research in the region. Much of the scholarly work on North-South research to date has concentrated principally on joint publications and co-authorship bibliometrics. In this book, cases are explored within the context of study on international research collaborations to highlight the motivations, mechanics, limitations, and success factors involved in the North-South relationships and their resulting research output.
Postmodern Parody in Latin American Literature: The Paradox of Ideological Construction and Deconstruction

Postmodern Parody in Latin American Literature: The Paradox of Ideological Construction and Deconstruction by Helene Carol Weldt-Basson
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 267 Pages | ISBN : 3319904299 | 3.39 MB

This book examines postmodern parody in Latin American literature as the intersection between ideology construction and deconstruction. Parody’s chief task is to deconstruct and criticize the ideologies behind previous texts. During this process, new ideologies are inevitably constructed. However, postmodernism simultaneously recognizes the partiality of all ideologies and rejects their enthronement as absolute truth. This raises the question of how postmodern parody deals with the paradox inherent in its own existence on the threshold between ideology construction/deconstruction and the rejection of ideology.

Globalization and Health Inequities in Latin America

Globalization and Health Inequities in Latin America By Ligia Malagón de Salazar
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 315 Pages | ISBN : 3319672916 | 9.09 MB

This book critically analyses the influence of international policies and guidelines on the performance of interventions aimed at reducing health inequities in Latin America, with special emphasis on health promotion and health in all policies strategies. While the implementation of these interventions plays a key role in strengthening these countries’ capacity to respond to current and future challenges, the urgency and pressures of cooperation and funding agencies to show results consistent with their own agendas not only hampers this goal, but also makes the territory invisible, hiding the real problems faced by most Latin American countries, diminishing the richness of local knowledge production, and hindering the development of relevant proposals that consider the territory’s conditions and cultural identity.

Human Rights, Transitional Justice, and the Reconstruction of Political Order in Latin America

Human Rights, Transitional Justice, and the Reconstruction of Political Order in Latin America By Michelle Frances Carmody
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 248 Pages | ISBN : 3319783920 | 4.15 MB

In Argentina and elsewhere in Latin America, decades after the fall of authoritarian regimes in the 1970s, transitional justice has proven to be anything but transitional—it has become a cornerstone of state policy and a powerful tool of state formation. Contextualizing cultural and political shifts in Argentina after the 1976 military coup with comparisons to other countries in the Southern Cone, Michelle Frances Carmody argues that incorporating human rights practices into official policy became a way for state actors to both build the authority of the state and manage social conflict, a key aim of post-Cold War democracies. By examining the relationship between transitional justice and the Latin American political order, this book illuminates overlooked dimensions of state formation in the age of human rights.
