Departmental Bulletin Paper “Tupi or not Tupi”: Eurocentric Modernity and Literature at the Margins

ポール, D. マグラス

What is modernity? Product of the European Enlightenment, does it possess the universality it claims? Are developing nations far from the metropolitan centers bound to emulate the Eurocentric model of the individual struggle of liberation from the collective? This paper looks at figures of resistance to modernity in Latin American and Thai literature and relates their resistance to theories of“ third world literature” proposed by Frederic Jameson.
