521846El fútbol es mucho más que un deporte. Es un modo de ejercitar el cuerpo, un producto de consumo masivo, un espectáculo, un negocio, un tema de conversación, un tópico literario y mediático, un fenómeno global, un modo de control social, una expresión popular mas o menos autónoma, un maleable recurso en la articulación de identidades sociales, étnico-raciales, nacionales y de género…
Del football al fútbol/futebol: historias argentinas, brasileras y uruguayas en el siglo XX estudia la popularización y criollización del football, su transformación en fútbol en Argentina y Uruguay, y en futebol en Brasil, su consolidación como deporte profesional y de masas, y como espectáculo y fuente de perdurables pasiones

ENTREVISTA AL ESCRITOR JUAN CARLOS MÉNDEZ GUÉDEZ

CAM00152En una reciente entrevista de la editorial A pie de Página al escritor venezolano, le preguntan por librerías en Madrid. Desde Iberoamericana Editorial Vervuert y Librería, le agradecemos sus palabras:

 

¿Cuáles son las librerías más peculiares de Madrid?

Existe una librería estupenda, con un fondo increíble, pues reúne títulos de muchos países de Latinoamérica que no conseguirás en otro lugar de España o del mundo, es la “librería Iberoamericana”, en Huertas 40. Es un lugar para salivar al ver todo lo que tienen y reúnen. Verdaderas joyas y nombres de autores para descubrir y conocer.

Great architects build structures that can make us feel enclosed, liberated or suspended. They lead us through space, make us slow down, speed up or stop to contemplate. Great writers, in devising their literary structures, do exactly the same.
