Discord and Solidarity: Spain, Argentina, and Mexico in El Estudiante (Salamanca, Madrid, 1924–1926)

Abstract

Employing Pierre Bourdieu’s notion of the field of cultural production, this chapter examines the Spanish journal El Estudiante (Salamanca, Madrid, 1925–1926) as a “social agent” that simultaneously mapped and shaped the structure of a transnational Hispanic cultural field. A Bourdieusian lens reads journals as spaces where multiple fields (national, transnational, economic, sociopolitical, as well as aesthetic) converge and stake their positions, thereby shaping the broader field of cultural production. Despite its short-lived existence (roughly one year with interruptions), El Estudiante built a portentous network of intellectual and cultural exchange between Latin America and Spain. The journal thus transcended national boundaries to redefine Latin America’s relationship with its former empire.
