Yet, while the rubric La.tin American postcolonial studies suggests the existence of a regional body of knowledge under that name, in reality it points to a problem: there is no corpus of wo rk on Latin America commonly recognized as po .stcolonial. This problem is magnified by the multiple and 9ften diverg ing meanings attributed to the signifier postco lonial, y . e ete~ggeneiry of nations. and peoples encompassed by,the pr~blematic al term Larin Am erica, by the though t- ~ 1 .. : ;. ~ . . ful critiques that have questioned the relevance of post -colonial studies for Latin America, and by the diversity and ichn~~~ of eflection~   on Latin America's coloniaJ and postcolonial hfatory, many of which, like most na- ELE l' hA NTS IN . THE AM ERI C AS? 397 tlo?s ih thi~ rc~f ~ long. red~te ~   e fi eld of o~tco loni l studies as ;t was developed in the r98os. How, then, to identify and examine a body of \fO rk that in reaJity does not appear· to exist? ow to define it without arbittarily inventing or confo1ing'it? How to treat it as p o~tcolonial with· ~ ti t framing it in terms of he existin gpo stcolonial ca. non and thus inevitably coldilizing it? · . . · · · ·Tliese challenging questions do not yield easy answers, Yet they call atten tio~ · to the character of postcolonial studies as one among a diverse set or regional reflections on the fotms and legacies of colonialism or rather CQfoniaJiSJ' IS. fn . Jig9t Of the worldwide diversity of critical tlloug~t Oil colo~   niallsrn and its ongo ing aftermath, the absence of a corpus ofLadn Ameri can postcolonial srudies is a problem not o studies on Latin America, but between postcoloni;il and.Latin American studies. thus approach this disc us- sioii of Latin American ·postcolonial studies-or, as I prefer ~o see jt, ~ postcolonial studies in the Americas- by reflecting on the relationsh)p J? e 7 : tween these two bodies ofknowledge. · . · · . · _;1 , >.> While its indisputable achievements bave turned postcolonial tudi~ into an indispensable point of eference in discussions about old and new colo-. nialisms, this field can be seen as a general standard or canon only i ~e . ' for ge ts that it is a regional corpus of knowledge whose global inffoeni: e ~· cannot be separated from its grounding in powerful metropolitan univer- sities; difference, not defer.ence, onentS this discussion. Rather than sub · ordinating Latin American studies to postcolonial studies and selecting textS ·. and auth ors that may meet its standards and qualify as postcolonial, I seel( o establish a dialogue between them on the basis of heir sh ared concerns and dfsunctive con tributions. This dialogue, as ....1th :i11y genuine exchange even among unequal partners, should setve not just to add participantS to the postcolonial discussion but also to cl rify its assumptions and transform its tenns . . My discus.sion is divided into four sections: the for mation of he field of iiostciJlonia:J stu die;; the place of'iatiil America in postcoloni.aJ studies· responses to postcolonial studies from Latin Americanists; and open-ended suggestions for deep~ning the dialo~e between postcoloniaJ and Latin American studies .li y (ocusing on exchanges between these fields, I have traded t:lfo ~ption o(olte~ing close readings of se lected texts and problems foi''t:l.if optibri' 8 erigagfiig te.hs that have addressed the postcolonial debate ln terniS. · bf how they 'shape or define the fie lds of postcolonial and La.tin American studies. f· .  .... - PO~TCOLONIAL ; S~Ubi:ES : ~ ,.:· . s~ · · ·~·~ .... .. · · ... ... :- .~~~~·~· . ~~~~· ~ ·; . r/ ·~ ~~~.· .{~ ~ ·:~;;. · . x~ .~· . .

A similar te'nsion between .Marxism and post--structuralism animates the evolving work of he South Asia.n group of his o · rians associated with subaltern srudies, the strongest historiographical cur rent of postco onia  l sruclies.

As the offspring of a tense marriage between anti-Jmp   critique and metropolitan privilege, postcolonial studies is permeated by tensions that also affect its reception, provoking sharply different evalu ations of ts signif. icance and political implicatibns: While some analysts seci)t as an academic commodity that serves the interests of gl6bal capital . ah4 ¢~e fits its privi leged practitioners (Di~liln(j9 4 , othefs re ·gard it as a ,~;gigrn atic inte liec· rual shift that redefines the relaticin$hip bet'We en· ~   owledge .and emancipa· tory politics (Robert Young 2001).

POSTCOLONI L STUDIES ND L TIN   MERIC N STUDIES Given this genealogy, jt is remarkable but understan dab le that debates artd ·. texts on or from Latin America do n9t   ~qre significantly in the fid,Cl ~f postcolonial studies as it has been defiµed s nce the 1980s. As Pete~ H.i1ln\e . (1996) has noted, Said's canonical iJ~n and Imperialism (1993) is mQle~ ,.i ~ atic of this tendency: it cente rs on .British an.d;frencb im(le.rialism tom the Iate_ nm_eteeoth century to t he presept; ~ . geographical focus is l imited roan area . sne~chj ~g qom Algeria ~~ I :~ ~~ ~ ;i n.~ rgle, of the United States is reso;i.t,~~d~? ; ~qe no , s~ -: Wodd w ~ . ~ ~~t;J~~~ ; d~sregarding this nation's srcin . as , ~   $Ql~P,l~:Jl   eWe. ?eflli 9f , ~nta.Jq. Spa.II , and Prance, the processes of -internal colonialism through. which Native Americans were su bjected within its territory, and its imperial designs in the Americas and elsewhere from the nineteenth century to the present The major readers and discussions on postcolonial studies barely take Latin America into acco un t. One of the earliest attempts to discuss postcolonial literatures as a comprehens iv e field, The Empirt rites Back: Theory and Practice in Post-Colonial Li t eratures (Ashcr oft, Griffiths, and Tiffin 1989), ac· knowledges a focus on Anglophone literatures Even so, its extensi ve sixteenpage bibliography, including all the works cited in the text, ;md some additional useful p ublic a tions'.' (224), fails to mention even a single text writte~ . on ,Latin Am erica or by a. Latin American author. The book treats Anglophone l.iter atures~ including those produced in the .Caribbean, as i tl1ese lirerarures we re not cross-fertilized by tl1e travel of deas and authors across regions and cu l tures-o r at least as ifthe literatures resulting from the Iberian coloni za tion of he Americas had not participated in this exchange.  ,, 1- ( ~:,,.; . , ..
