1. Ros, Maria Ofelia. The Uncanny Laughs Once Again: Subjectivity and Structures of Ideological Domination in Late Twentieth-Century Argentinean Cultural Production.

Degree: PhD, Romance Languages & Literatures: Spanish, 2010, University of Michigan

This thesis considers literary representations of the relationship between subjectivity and structures of ideological domination that were temporarily shattered in the wake of the Argentinean economic, social and political 2001collapse. In the central chapters I work with Argentinean writers who trace historical and cultural precedents to the 2001 collapse back through the late twentieth-century: Osvaldo Lamborghini, César Aira and Arturo Carrera. Their texts perform a critique of structures of ideological domination in Argentina’s history such as: the paternalism of Juan Domingo Perón, the repressive politics of the last dictatorship, the xenophobic and homophobic outbreaks following the Falkland/Malvinas war, and the paradox of a Peronist politics of globalization (developed under the leadership of Carlos Menem in the 1990s). In the final chapter, I examine Eloísa Cartonera: an alternative publishing house that arguably changes the role of literature in the scenario post-crisis 2001 by questioning the function of books as fetishes of culture. The literary texts as well as the cultural phenomena studied in this thesis work to undermine “ideological fantasies” of domination, relying primarily on parodic forms of defamiliarization that resemble Freud’s definition of the uncanny (Das Unheimliche), that is, stressing what is unknown and threatening at the very site of the familiar or “heimlich.” In sum, this dissertation works on three simultaneous levels: the conceptual, drawing on Sigmund Freud, Jacques Lacan, Karl Marx, Jacques Derrida, György Lukács, Jacques Rancière, and Slavoj Zizek; the literary, including Argentina’s literary tradition and its relation to, for example, the European avant-garde or debates on realism; and the cultural, including the history of Peronism, dictatorship and its relation to the economic realm. Advisors/Committee Members: Jenckes, Katharine Miller (committee member), Brown, Catherine (committee member), Moreiras-Menor, Cristina (committee member), Williams, Gareth (committee member).
