1. Baca, Damián. "Spirit(s) and Imagination in Frederico Vigil’s Torreón Fresco" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Studies Association Annual Meeting, Hyatt Regency, Albuquerque, New Mexico, <Not Available>. 2020-02-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p245210_index.html>

Abstract: The popular historical imaginary of fresco mural art obscures northern New Mexican contributions by implying a uni-lineal, global “East-to-West” movement of mural art practices, not beginning in the Americas until Puritans colonize north Atlantic coastal regions and advance westward via Manifest Destiny. This paper argues that Mexican and specifically northern New Mexican fresco muralists such as Frederico Vigil forward a parallel historical lineage that emerges not from ancient Greece, nor from Puritans, but from the intellectual provinces of Mesoamerica and the Andes. Analyzing Vigil’s contemporary Torreón mural project at the National Hispanic Cultural Center Foundation, this presentation re-imagines Vigil within an alternate historical lineage beginning with the Maya spiritual center and ceremonial tower at Tulum-Yucatán Peninsula. Such reimagining works to undermine the dominance of: A) Anglo-centered art history in the Americas, and B) the Western European division between Rationality and Spirit(s) in fresco muralist art.

Abstract: Liberation theology, a once prominent theological movement within the Latin American Catholic Church during the 1960s through the 1980s, has since faded as a significant theological sect. Written works depicting the controversial priest turned guerrilla presented a possible view Father Camilo Torres Restrepo (hereafter cited as Father Torres) initiated the Liber. Conversely, Liberation Theology did not originate in Latin America during the 1960s by priests who were disgruntled with the government and the Vatican.
Further examination of the unequivocal written works and actions of Father Torres, as both a pivotal and a fatal character in the launch of liberation theology, has permitted the oppressed in Colombia the use of violence as a means to gain freedom. A critique and analysis of Father Torres will answer whether or not he validated or violated biblical revelation according to Catholic Canon and Latin American history in a crusade to see the people of Colombia free and equal in the eyes of the government. I intend to explain how Bartolome de las Casas inspired Father Torres to pursue the liberation of his people with great vigor and violate the very scriptures he swore to uphold.

Abstract: This paper is part of an ongoing research, which analyses the media representations of the Spanish pederast and ex-karate world class coach Fernando Torres Baena. This research is based mainly on Foucault’s work. In this paper I focus on the process of subjectivation of Torres Baena’s victims through analysing their statements collected in the media during the trial. For this, firstly, I follow what Markula and Pringle (2006), drawing on Foucault’s subjectivation, state that ‘s/he is subjected to control but has some freedom to use power to control others’ (p.138). Secondly, in order to go beyond the two axes of Foucault’s work: power relations and forms of knowledge I delve into what Deleuze calls in the last chapter of his book devoted to Foucault (1986): ‘Foldings, or the Inside of Thought (Subjectivation)’

4. Valencia, Felipe. "Lyric, the Lyrical Sequence, and the Poetic Subject in Francisco de la Torre’s Versos líricos" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the RSA Annual Meeting, Humboldt University of Berlin, Berlin, Germany, <Not Available>. 2020-02-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p751652_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: The poetry of Francisco de la Torre stands out in early modern Spanish poetry not necessarily due to the lack of information about its author beyond his name, or to its exclusive presence in an edition appeared forty years after it had been prepared for the press in 1588. The challenge lies instead in Torre’s use of the term lyric in the title of the first two books into which the collection is divided, rendering the verse contained therein into a remarkable statement on what the lyric was and could accomplish at the end of the sixteenth century, when Hispanic poetry entered its crucial stage of Baroque transformation. My reading attends to thinking on the lyric, both from our time and especially from the second half of the sixteenth century, in order to elucidate what Torre’s Versos líricos represent in the emergence of the notion of lyric during the Renaissance.
