With six years remaining before the 200th anniversary of the founding of the Republic of Bolivia (1825) – now the Plurinational State of Bolivia – this edition of Ciencia y Cultura aims to reflect on the complex series of political, social, cultural, and symbolic events and transformations that are part of the shared worldviews and identities that cohabit the nation’s territory. The events of 1825 shall serve not only to rethink the present, but also, by examining the past, to analyze and go deeper into the debates relating to the creation of the Republic and its repercussions on the collective worldviews regarding the nation. Authors such as Benedict Anderson (1983) define the concept of nation as an “imagined political community (…) inherently limited and sovereign”, in which in order to achieve consolidation, its inhabitants must feel they are a part of such a community. At the same time, this implies the construction of the political, state and national community. In relation to this, Marxist historian Eric Hobsbawm (2001) considers that it is “more common for nations to be the consequence of creating a State, rather than being its pillars.” As the case may be, throughout the years, the visions, the collective worldviews and the nation projects changed; new paradigms emerged, archaic colonial models were preserved, new actors arose, etc. Taking into account this historical context, the purpose of this number is to contribute with new research, and a renewed outlook on the topic. We are looking for contributions that cover the process between the Independence and the 21st century. We are interested in receiving proposals dealing with the topics in an interdisciplinary manner, from the humanities, cultural studies, social sciences, and arts studies.
Consequently, Ciencia y Cultura of Universidad Católica Boliviana invites researchers and specialists to submit contributions (articles, reviews, interviews, extracts of documents and archive material) in English and Spanish. The topics of interest are:
  • political projects prior to Independence;
  • establishment of the Nation-State and state projects;
  • collective worldviews of the Nation from the perspective of the regions and individual actors or subaltern groups;
  • the Republic and the Plurinational State: similarities and contrasts;
  • projections of a historical, aesthetic and ecological nature, etc. with a view towards the Bicentennial;
  • collective representations in literature, historiography and philosophical thought;
  • building of the symbolic order (festivities, school texts, albums, hymns, personal memoirs, etc.);
  • visions on indigenous people: inclusions and exclusions;
  • comparative viewpoints of civic commemorations;
  • milestones and vicissitudes in the construction of the Nation;
  • proposals examining artistic production and
  • other related topics.
