Research on Emotion and Learning: Contributions from Latin America

Author: Camilo Hurtado-Parrado

Publisher: Frontiers Media SA

Latin America has increased its share of world scientific publications by nearly twofold during the last two decades (approximately from 2 to 4%). Despite this positive trend, the scholarly impact of scientific research produced in the region - measured in terms of citation rate - remains low. Two interrelated factors that contribute to this situation is that most research groups tend to work in isolation or in local sporadic collaboration, and results are often published in journals that are not indexed in major citation databases (e.g., SCOPUS, or Web of Science). Ultimately, part of Latin American high-quality research seems to remain hidden from the rest of the world. Over the last decades, an important number of Latin American scientists have developed fruitful research agendas on questions on learning and emotion, focusing on basic and/or translational research with humans and other animal models, and implementing diverse methodologies. Notwithstanding the important contributions of these research programs, Latin American research on emotion and learning has followed the overall trend of other research fields throughout the region; namely, remaining partially hidden from the large scientific community of the world. This Research Topic aimed to engage researchers from Latin America to share their empirical and conceptual work on learning and emotion. Ultimately, this effort was expected to strengthen and integrate our regional community of experts, enhance global networking, and establish new challenges and developments for future investigation.

The Book of Latin American Cooking

The Book of Latin American Cooking is an exotic, exciting and uncomplicated cookbook that comes with a fascinating culinary introduction and notes on all the essential ingredients. With a sudden rash of Latin American restaurants opening in London and other major cities, such as Ceviche and Lima and the chain of Las Iguanas, the British are at last getting to grips with the cooking of Latin America; a sophisticated cuisine that is as old and as complex as any in the world. First published in 1969 and written by one of the first 'scholar cooks', The Book of Latin American Cooking is regarded as a classic and one of only a handful of books to examine this much underappreciated cuisine. The collision of civilisations that occurred after the Spanish conquest, and the adoption by the colonisers of so many new foods such as the chilli and the pepper, the tomato, the potato, chocolate, French beans and avocados, down to the very staple, maize, means that Latin American cookery is a hybrid of infinite and unique combinations. Elisabeth Lambert Ortiz was the very first writer to encourage British and American enthusiasm for the food of Latin America and the Caribbean. Ortiz introduces the reader to the subtle marriages of texture and flavour which distinguish the cooking of South America from Peru to Chile.

Crossing Sex and Gender in Latin America

Signifying "others" or signs of life? This book critically examines the ways in which crossing sex and gender is imagined in key cultural texts from contemporary Latin America. Unlike previous studies, Crossing Sex and Gender in Latin America does not hold that sexually diverse figures are always and only performative or allegorical and instead places the accent on questions of the presence or absence of an account of subjectivity in contemporary representation. Via analysis of selected films and literary works of Reinaldo Arenas, Mayra Santos-Febres, Pedro Lemebel, among others, the author reflects on the political implications of recent visions (1985-2005).
