    O meio rural adquiriu status de lócus do turismo onde a produção local é um dos principais atrativos. O objetivo deste artigo foi examinar as possibilidades e limitações de articulações entre a agricultura familiar e a iniciativa privada na perspectiva do turismo rural integrado no município de Piranguçu. Foram realizadas 46 entrevistas com agricultores locais e empreendedores do turismo. Observou‐se uma desconexão entre estes atores sociais. Os empreendedores privilegiavam a compra em supermercados e os agricultores a venda para mercados externos. Contudo, ambos demonstraram interesses em formar parcerias, embora haja necessidade de construir estratégias de diálogo para alinhar a demanda dos empreendimentos e a produção agrícola, e assegurar o comprometimento das partes para manterem e ampliarem o vínculo. Conclui‐se que o contexto é promissor para integrar as expectativas da agricultura familiar local e maximizar o potencial turístico do município.Rural areas have gradually become sites for tourism ventures where local products are highlighted as one of the main attractions. The objective of this article was to examine the possibilities and limitations of connecting family farming and private business ventures in the shape of integrated rural tourism in the munici‐ pality of Piranguçu. Forty six interviews were carried out with family farmers and tourist entrepreneurs. These revealed a total lack of connection between these social actors. Entrepreneurs preferred to buy in supermarkets and farmers to sell to foreign markets. However, both showed interest in forming partnerships, although there is a need to build dialogue strategies to align the demand of enterprises and agricultural production, and ensure the commitment of the parties to maintain and expand the link. It is concluded that the context is promising to integrate the local family farmers’ expectations and maximise the tourist potential of the municipality

    Sobre los usos de waste

    Get PDF
    For the past few years, waste has become an increasingly popular topic among literary scholars. The sheer volume of areas of knowledge involved in this highly interdisciplinary field has been somehow blurred as the labels “Waste Studies” and “Waste Theory” gained traction. Nevertheless, upon closer inspection those terms crumble easily. What is “Waste Theory”? What attempts, if any, have been made to agglutinate these disparage fields and their corresponding contributions into a cohesive discipline of its own? This paper aims to shed light on these questions by reviewing some of the most referenced works and authors within the burgeoning waste scholarship. Likewise, it seeks to critically examine whether it would be possible–and productive–to elaborate a general theory of waste.Durante los últimos años, el tema de waste se ha vuelto cada vez más popular entre los aca- démicos del ámbito literario. El enorme volumen de áreas de conocimiento implicadas en este campo altamente interdisciplinario se ha visto desdibujado a medida que las etiquetas «Waste Studies» o «Waste Theory» han ido ganando terreno. Sin embargo, un examen más detallado revela que se trata de denominaciones que se desmoronan fácilmente. ¿Qué es la «Waste Theory»? ¿Qué intentos, si los hubiere, se han llevado a cabo para aglutinar estos diversos campos y sus correspondientes contribuciones en una disciplina cohesionada? Este artículo trata de arrojar luz sobre estas cuestiones a través de una revisión de algunos de las obras y autores más referenciados dentro del pujante ámbito de los estudios académicos sobre waste. Asimismo, se busca examinar de manera crítica si sería posible (y productivo) desarrollar una teoría general en torno al concepto de waste

    Del espacio al suelo: contaminación química e hídrica en la Nueva Inglaterra de H.P. Lovecraft

    This paper discusses the influence of interwar environmental practices regarding chemi- cal and water pollution in New England on H. P. Lovecraft’s “The Colour Out of Space” (1927) and “The Shunned House” (1937). It is argued that the literary Gothic tradition which Lovecraft builds upon is influenced by Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The House of the Seven Gables (1851) and remodeled by Rachel Carson in Silent Spring (1962) as ecoGothic realism. It is discussed that “The Colour Out of Space” extends Lovecraft’s personal writ- ings regarding the gap between class and politics in the face of growing wealth disparity. It is commented how in “The Shunned House,” Lovecraft presents anti-immigration senti- ment while also advocating for integrated and preserved cities free of pollution, and the paper concludes that for Lovecraft, changes in landscape and ecology reflect fundamental changes in New England society that are evidenced by commercialism and lack of proper waste management policies.En este artículo se trata la influencia que ejercieron las prácticas medioambientales del periodo de entreguerras en Nueva Inglaterra–tanto químicas como de polución de las aguas–en los relatos de H.P. Lovecraft “The Colour Out of Space” (1927) y “The Shun- ned House” (1937). Se argumenta que la tradición literaria Gótica sobre la que Lovecraft construye su obra está influenciada por The House of the Seven Gables (1851) de Nathaniel Hawthorne, y es remodelada por Rachel Carson en Silent Spring (1962) como una forma de realismo ecoGótico. Se discute que “The Colour Out of Space” es una extensión de los escritos personales de Lovecraft en lo relacionado a la brecha generada entre clase y política al ampliarse la disparidad económica. Se comenta como en “The Shunned House” Lovecraft presenta sentimientos xenofóbicos junto a la idea de tener ciudades integradas y preservadas libres de polución. El articulo concluye que para Lovecraft los cambios en el paisaje y la ecología se equiparan a cambios fundamentales en la sociedad de Nueva Inglaterra, que se ponen en evidencia por la comercialización y la falta de políticas en el manejo apropiado de los residuos urbanos

    “Bienvenid@ a America 2.0”: una lectura de lo residual en Super Sad True Love Story de Gary Shteyngart

    Get PDF
    This article proposes a reading of Gary Shteyngart’s celebrated novel Super Sad True Love Story (2010), a text that straddles the dystopian and the satiric in its depiction of a quasi- contemporary America, from the perspective of Waste Studies. Through the problematic relationship between its two main characters, Shteyngart’s novel articulates the wide-ranging effects of globalization on a generationally-ruptured American society, that in many ways stands also for the First World at large. Drawing from sociologists, cultural critics, and phi- losophers like Zygmunt Bauman, Ulrich Beck, Byung-Chul Han, John Scanlan and Susan Sontag, who have theorized how individuals today are molded, challenged and threatened by powerful extrinsic forces in the era of globalization, this article aims to explore how Super Sad True Love Story showcases a range of mutually interrelated “modes of waste,” resulting from the writer’s pushing to a satiric/dystopic extreme contemporary American practices in politics and finance, citizenship and social ethics, culture and language, and even biological research.This article proposes a reading of Gary Shteyngart’s celebrated novel Super Sad True Love Story (2010), a text that straddles the dystopian and the satiric in its depiction of a quasi- contemporary America, from the perspective of Waste Studies.
