Heterogeneidad de los discursos sobre lo indigena en las revistas indigenistas peruanas de vanguardia
Thesis (Ph.D.)--Georgetown University, 2011.; Includes bibliographical references.; Text (Electronic thesis) in PDF format. During the third decade of the Twentieth Century, avant-garde indigenous magazines in Peru represented the arena of an ideological struggle about what constituted a national identity. Their main goal was to promote the recognition of the indigenous culture as the bearer of Peruvian nationality. I argue that there was not a homogenous national discourse, but rather many discourses stemming from a variety of cultural groups and different geographical areas. Several intellectuals acknowledged different national groups as the most representative of the nation without reaching a consensus. Due to their lack of agreement, the social recognition of a national project that would include the indigenous population was frustrated. To prove my hypothesis, I analyze the discourses from four avant-garde indigenous magazines: Amauta, La Sierra, Boletín Titikaka and Kuntur.
