Abstract

310 Anclajes IX. 9 (diciembre 2005): 309-314. on the other hand, they developed into fields where the novel was used to explore the processes of social changes. This paper has been dedicated to the analysis of the Sud-America newspaper (1884-1892) and its serials, as far as its communicational strategies that joined every section may concern. At the same time, it has been written to investigate the use of the novel as a political instrument to reinforce the newspaper's propaganda. At first, it describes the Argentine press modernization process during the last two decades of the Nineteenth Century. Then, it provides details about the mayor features of Sud-América regarding its treatment of political news.

With the purpose of giving a brief account of the landmarks in the history of this cultural phenomenon and attempting to define some delimitative categories to establish constellations of sense, the present work will center upon Ana María Amar Sánchez’s thesis (2000). According to her, a corpus of texts belonging to Latin American literature proceeded to the appropriation of mass cultural aspects, while in that very same operation, it separated from it.

Our paper intends to expand the corpus of authors studied by Amar Sánchez as well as the genres included in her analysis, bringing in exponents from science fiction, especially Angélica Gorodischer's works.
