Abstract

This work presents a comparative study of the commemoration of the bicentennial of independence in Mexico and Colombia, celebrations that took place during 2010. Particularly, it unravels the politics of commemoration that made the bicentennial an object of dispute among different social actors (State, civil society, academia, social movements, etc.), based on their own readings, appropriations, and representations of history, temporality, and nation. To the effect, the study explores different areas of the celebration of the bicentennial: public festivities (festivals, commemorative events, parades, etc.), historical exhibitions in museums and the construction of monuments, the commercialization of history through the implementation of historical and cultural tourist routes, as well as the circulation of publicity in the press that appealed to historical or patriotic sentiments. For each of these areas, understood as registers of social memory and differentiated discursive forms, the book analyzes and contrasts examples from each of the two countries, aiming to identify general trends in the commemoration of the bicentennial in our region, as well as the specificity of each case. In addition to the introduction and a first chapter that presents the theoretical and contextual framework of the research, the study consists of four chapters that are dedicated to examining each of the mentioned registers.
