The Marrano Specter

The last century of Latin Americanist Hispanism could be characterized as a mondialatinisation through which ethno-religious Latin origins and experience are elevated to an ontotheological register of expectation. Given Derrida’s own insistence on the specifically Latin extraction of globalizing power structures, deconstruction may help us grasp more concretely how the specific or the identitarian figures in the singularity of the messianic as horizon of change. In other words, does the specific have a role in deconstruction other than being deconstructed? To address such questions, this essay undertakes a reading of Faith and Knowledge focused on mondialatinisation by way of related issues of the event, time, and experience.

Keywords:   Faith and Knowledge, Latin Americanism, mondialatinisation
