El Congreso de los Estados Unidos y el gobierno militar peruano, 1968-1975 (“The United States Congress and the Peruvian military government, 1968-1975”)BARRETO VELÁZQUEZ, NorbertoHumanitiesThe project seeks to fill the void in the study of Peruvian-American relations to analyze the role played by the US Congress key institution to its political system during one of the hottest periods in the history of bilateral relations: The Revolutionary Government of the Armed Forces. For its leftist and nationalist character, the regime of Juan Velasco Alvarado adopted an anti-imperialist discourse that led to an interesting confrontation with the government of the United States. He expropriated several US corporations, including the International Petroleum Company (IPC), the most notorious case during that time. In this part of the story, researchers have paid little attention to diplomatic and international elements, especially to the interaction of the Peruvian military with the US government. In this regard, the project will contribute to the development of two lines of research: the analysis of Peruvian-US relations and the study of the role of the Congress in the development of the US foreign policy.16El Congreso de los Estados Unidos y el gobierno militar peruano, 1968-1975 (“The United States Congress and the Peruvian military government, 1968-1975”)http://www.up.edu.pe/en/Lists/Proyectos/DispForm.aspx?ID=16
Evolución de las redes corporativas peruana, 1940-2010 (“Evolution of Peruvian corporate networks, 1940-2010”)MONSALVE ZANATTI, Martín AlbertoHumanitiesA corporate network is defined by the positions that companies share in the directories of other firms. This research suggests that, despite some public role of business associations, Peruvian corporate network has lost cohesion in the last twenty years. For the first time you can find business groups that share fewer or no directors with companies of the other groups. However, the centrality has settled in the network of the financial sector. In this context, the problem is to understand how the Peruvian business community has organized itself in time, assuming that firms seek to relate to each other for individual and collective benefits. This research also seeks to meet entrepreneurs and major companies to have a local business profile and know the importance and the role that certain business institutions in Peru have, such as economic groups and business associations.35Evolución de las redes corporativas peruana, 1940-2010 (“Evolution of Peruvian corporate networks, 1940-2010”)http://www.up.edu.pe/en/Lists/Proyectos/DispForm.aspx?ID=35
Potencias del alma (artículo para la Gran Enciclopedia Cervantina) (“Powers of the soul (article for the Great Cervantine Encyclopedia)”)PÉREZ MARTÍNEZ, Ángel RubénHumanitiesThe Great Cervantine Encyclopedia (Spanish: GEC) is undoubtedly one of the largest scientific projects that have been promoted in the field of Humanities in recent years. It is a project that began in 2002 and will end in the coming years, in its analogue version in paper. More than ten volumes, thousands of voices, hundreds of contributors talk of the scale of the project, which has not only received exceptional contributions during the celebrations of the fourth centenary of the publication of Don Quixote, but also the grant of some research projects, from both the Ministry of Science and Technology, as well as the current Ministry of Education and the Autonomous Community of Madrid. The author, as partner of this important project, has already written two articles (voices "Virtue" and "Passions"). Now I have been given the task to develop the concept "Powers of the soul", which has philosophical, cultural, and literary connotations.39Potencias del alma (artículo para la Gran Enciclopedia Cervantina) (“Powers of the soul (article for the Great Cervantine Encyclopedia)”)http://www.up.edu.pe/en/Lists/Proyectos/DispForm.aspx?ID=39
El caleidoscopio de las interpretaciones: Boissier de Sauvage (1763), Ricardo Wiesse (2013) y los poemas de Catorce formas de melancolía, de Eduardo Chirinos (2007) (“The kaleidoscope of interpretations: Boissier de Sauvage (1763), Ricardo Wiesse (2013) aWIESSE REBAGLIATI, Jorge RaúlHumanitiesThe illustrations made by Ricardo Wiesse from the poems of Catorce formas de melancolía (“Fourteen forms of melancholy”), by Eduardo Chirinos, modify in various ways the reception of the text. From this ascertainment, different forms of interpretation may arise: 1) the drawings illustrate, they say, they are representations, of the text; 2) the text illustrates, he says, it is written representation of the drawing. Interpretation can become even more complex if we postulate the ratio of Chirinos’s poems with a previous text: Chapter XIX in the section "Genera et species" of Nosologia Methodica (1763), by French writer Boissier de Sauvages. The planes of expression and content of both the poems by Chirinos and the drawings by Wiesse will be compared.49El caleidoscopio de las interpretaciones: Boissier de Sauvage (1763), Ricardo Wiesse (2013) y los poemas de Catorce formas de melancolía, de Eduardo Chirinos (2007) (“The kaleidoscope of interpretations: Boissier de Sauvage (1763), Ricardo Wiesse (2013) ahttp://www.up.edu.pe/en/Lists/Proyectos/DispForm.aspx?ID=49
Plurinationality, Indigeneity, Neoliberalism, and Social MovementsHuarcaya Fajardo, MiguelHumanitiesThe project analyzes and compares the trajectories of indigenous movements in the Andean countries incorporating the ethnographic work of the author. The contribution emphasizes the historical contingency of each process and develops the idea that contemporary indigenous resistance does not come from an ancient historical consciousness, but from new subjectivities and political cultures, closely related to globalization. The research responds to the invitation to contribute with a chapter to the volume "The Andean World", from the series Routledge Worlds (https://www.routledge.com/series/WORLDS) made by the publishers, teachers Linda Seligman (George Mason University) and Kathleen Fine-Dare (Fort Lewis College). The chapter will be included in the "Landscapes of Contemporary Andean Worlds" part. The first version of the chapter must be submitted in December 2016. The invitation letter is included at the end.62Plurinationality, Indigeneity, Neoliberalism, and Social Movementshttp://www.up.edu.pe/en/Lists/Proyectos/DispForm.aspx?ID=62
