Descolonizando o tempo Queer: uma crítica do anacronismo na escrita latin@


  • Eliana de Souza Avila Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina



Estudos Latin@, Anacronismo, Racialização, Fronteiras Temporais, Descolonização


Embora o termo Latin@ não possa ser rastreado por qualquer referente coerente em termos de origem geográfica ou epistêmica (Rodríguez, 2014), ainda denota um referente muito estável quando se trata de destino geográfico - sendo os EUA o destino migratório central, modelado por e modelando deslocamentos identitários e posições epistêmicas diversas associadas à América Latina. Por mais que esta determinidade narrativa seja o efeito das assimetrias de poder globais, ela tende também a naturalizá-las por meio da migração em termos evolucionistas que anacronizam as lutas contra o deslocamento, a desterritorialização e o desapossamento. O campo da literatura latin@ e da crítica torna-se, portanto, um lugar efetivo a partir do qual os conflitos históricos em curso elididos por essas narrativas podem ser criativamente lembrados e reconfigurados. Este artigo reflete sobre as fronteiras temporais como um paradigma crítico para reconfigurar narrativas de temporalidade direta na escrita Latin@.
