Abstract
  • This dissertation studies oralitures and literatures written by contemporary indigenous authors in Colombia, from1992 and 2012, by using two main theoretical notions: textualidades oralitegráficas (oralitegraphic textual productions) and visiones de cabeza (upside down visions). The first notion refers to the creative textual confluence of oral communication, literary alphabetic writing, and non-alphabetic graphic writing (e.g. maps, masks and visual representations in weaving). The second notion refers to indigenous literatures challenging non-indigenous institutions, companies, practices and peoples. This dissertation examines texts such as the testimonial narrative of Bericha´s Tengo los pies en la cabeza (1992), the short stories "Esa horrible costumbre de alejarme de ti" (1993) and "Manifiesta no saber firmar" (2006) by, respectively, Vicenta Siosi and Estercilia Simanca, Hugo Jamioy´s poetry book Bínÿbe oboyejuayëng (2005), and Fredy Chikangana´s Samay pisccok pponccopi mushcoypa (2010). This study analyzes the texts not only as independent creations, but also in relationship with other works and broader literary proposals beyond Colombia. Following this approach, links are explored between literary works with systems of visual representation and communication on the one hand, and oral and literary communication on the other hand (as the oralitura project). Developing and applying the notions of visiones de cabeza and textualidades oralitegráficas, this dissertation contributes to the reading of indigenous writers' textual proposals, as well as the understanding of some of their own self-representations and responses to the hegemonic society.
