Género e inmigración en la Pampa Gringa argentina
Trazos y trazas de una tradición selectiva
Traditions as configurative forces both select and discriminate reference parameters. As so does it happen inside a given culture, where they pre-configure a present time that allows for the recovery and re-signification of meanings and operating practices. The migration process in Argentina has been treated and studied from the ‘porteña’ metropolis stance, subsuming thus a variety and plurality of manifestations and traits yet visible in the amplified territory of Argentina into a uniform whole. A case in point is what happened in the Pampa Gringa. A similar situation is found when we attempt to analyse from a gender angle women writers who, from their immigrant-being or immigrant descendent identity, try to combine and antagonise the selective traditions from this experiences and tensions; or in settings where characters still enrolled in masculine words are revisited and surprise out of the actuality of their proposal. Hence, this paper propose carrying out a succinct analysis of the above-mentioned selective operations and tries to expose as of the fictional and critical some examples to argue said forgot facts.
