Este trabajo de investigación está centrado en el movimiento musical denominado Tropicalismo, el cual a fines de los años 60, mediante la fusión entre la Música...

Singing in the Wind By Kebin Wang

As a physicist, the author has particular interests in Chinese literature and history. After retirement, he got enough time to pick up his hobby in liberal arts. Starting from the language culture,... More > then, to history and music. He spent several months on a paper 《Talking on Chinese Words and Characters》, in which he emphasized the beauty of the Chinese language, as well as the difficulties encountered in the digital age. Following that, he finished a series of papers discussing Chinese verbs, prepositions, as well as idioms, in comparison with English. In the article on Chinese history, he is trying to generalize from the data in different dynasties in a way similar to statistical analysis, and thus to reach some commonsense conclusions. Two papers about the popular songs in the 1950s and 1960s, as well as a discussion about Beijing Opera are also collected in the book.< Less
Timos: clásicos y modernos, aún funcionan By Jose Manuel Ferro Veiga

Pero también ocurren otras cosas: cada semana las calles contemplan asombradas cómo algún pardillo es víctima de un timo más popular que la paella mixta. Sí, timos, porque aún hoy se dan, tantos años después de su edad de oro. Fueron los años sesenta y setenta, en los que la estafa de la estampita y el tocomocho formaban parte del acervo cultural, en grotesca manifestación de la picaresca que tanto predicamento tuvo en nuestro país (y retuvo: la sección de noticias lo confirma a diario), a modo de dique de contención de la modernidad. Lo cierto es que, con mayor o menor grado de elaboración en las artes del engaño, el objetivo de los timos y estafas casi siempre ha sido el mismo: engatusar y engañar< Less
Realeza de Inglaterra By Nelson Ñustes
eBook (PDF): $4.00
Realeza de Inglaterra es la novela inaugural del escritor colombiano Nelson Ñustes, quien fue docente de inglés en colegios y universidades durante diez años. Escrita... More > intencionalmente en un lenguaje popular y escueto, narra las situaciones vivenciales al interior de un colegio bachiller en el cual se da la imposición totalitaria del bilingüismo colonizador, Inglés – Español, frente al cual ha de surgir la posición adolescente caracterizada por la resistencia idiomática. De esa manera se logra un escenario propicio para la narrativa crítica y documental de una realidad específica del contexto latinoamericano, en la que los múltiples personajes, por su propia voz, habrán de asumir la mixta mezcla cultural que nos compone; llena de múltiples pueblos y lenguas ancestrales que, precisamente, los estados latinoamericanos han tenido por política exterminar por medio del genocidio y las masacres, incluso por medio de la enseñanza obligatoria del idioma anglosajón.< Less
