In Latinamericanism after 9/11, John Beverley explores Latinamericanist cultural theory in relation to new modes of political mobilization in Latin America. He emphasizes that Latinamericanism is not only a discourse of the European or Anglo-American academy but also a set of discursive positions and practices internal to Latin America, developed within its universities, art, literature, literary criticism, and cultural debates. Beverley contends that after 9/11, the hegemony of United States and the neoliberal assumptions of the so-called Washington Consensus began to fade in Latin America. At the same time, the emergence in Latin America of new leftist governments, the marea rosada or "pink tide," gathered momentum. Whatever its outcome, the marea rosada has shifted the grounds of Latinamericanist thinking in a significant way. Assessing recent Latinamericanist thought, Beverley proposes new paradigms more suited to Latin America's reconfigured political landscape. In the process, he takes up matters such as Latin American postcolonial and cultural studies, the persistence of the national question and cultural nationalism in Latin America, the neoconservative turn in recent Latin American literary and cultural criticism, and the relation between subalternity and the state.
