    Silent Conflict in High-Profile Cities. Latin America and Beyond.Krystian Darmach - 2020 - International Studies. Interdisciplinary Political and Cultural Journal 25 (1):163-171.
    This anthropological essay provides a meditation on mass tourism while analysing the mechanisms of conflict between the needs of mass tourism and the local urban environment, extraterritorial spaces that fit into the universal heritage of humanity. Historical districts/ entertainment districts in capital cities are discussed as extraterritorial areas treated as ambivalent, bypassed, business bases. The tourists themselves constitute thoroughly ambivalent figures as tame strangers, treated simultaneously as a potential source of maximum earnings and intruders.

    The End of the Myth of the Cuban Exile? Current Trends in Cuban Emigration.Katarzyna Dembicz - 2020 - International Studies. Interdisciplinary Political and Cultural Journal 25 (1):75-88.
    Cuban migrants are considered as and referred to as exiles. However, in the face of the economic transformations in Cuba, as well as the rapprochement between the U.S. and Cuba, it has become necessary to revise the epistemological and semiotic foundations of this phenomenon. The current migratory trends among the Cubans do not meet the definition of exiles. Thus, the title of this article reflects the research assumption and the principal aim that the current circumstances in Cuba, as well as (...)

    Forty-Four Years of Polish Archaeoastronomical Research in Latin America.Stanisław Iwaniszewski - 2020 - International Studies. Interdisciplinary Political and Cultural Journal 25 (1):151-162.
    Since the late 1980s, there has been a considerable growth in the numer of Polish contributions to the Latin American archaeoastronomy. Much of this interest in archaeoastronomy is an outcome of the scientific activities of Professor Andrzej Wiercinski who in the 1970s was fascinated with the claims for sophisticated Megalithic astronomy advocated by early British archaeoastronomers. The paper provides a brief description of the greatest Polish achievements in the field of Latin American archaeoastronomy.

    Proclamation of Ferdinand VI in Cusco (23 September 1747): Art and Politics.Ewa Kubiak - 2020 - International Studies. Interdisciplinary Political and Cultural Journal 25 (1):129-149.
    The article analyses the royal proclamation of Ferdinand VI in Cusco which took place on 23 September 1747, on the birthday of the king. A reconstruction of the celebration was possible thanks to two sources: the city chronicle written in the mid-eighteenth century by Diego de Esquivel y Navía and an occasional print containing a description of the ceremony by José Antonio Santander. The article discusses three aspects of the presented celebrations. First of all, it presents the general context, i.e. (...)

    Argentine Concordat as an International Agreement Regulating the Law of Patronage.Marta Zuzanna Osuchowska - 2020 - International Studies. Interdisciplinary Political and Cultural Journal 25 (1):89-109.
    In the history of relations between the Argentinean government and the Holy See, two ideas are permanently intertwined: signing the Concordat and defending national patronage. The changes that occurred in the 1960s indicated that exercising the right of patronage, based on the principles outlined in the Constitution, was impossible, and the peaceful establishment of the principles of bilateral relations could only be indicated through an international agreement. The Concordat signed by Argentina in 1966 removed the national patronage, but the changes (...)

    Towards Homes and Graves. About the Returns, Desaparecidos and Exhumation Challenges in Peru at the End of the Twentieth Century.Joanna Pietraszczyk-Sękowska - 2020 - International Studies. Interdisciplinary Political and Cultural Journal 25 (1):49-74.
    The article concerns the wartime history of Peru and examines both topdown and bottom-up practices of accounting for the internal conflict of 1980–2000, which were initiated in the background of the warfare. The aim of the article is to discuss the connections I observed between the phenomena referred to in the title: return migrations of the inhabitants of the central-southern province, their search for the victims of forced disappearances, as well as the exhumation challenges emerging since the beginning of the (...)

    Latin America: The Region Without Catalonia.Tomasz Rudowski & Piotr Sieniawski - 2020 - International Studies. Interdisciplinary Political and Cultural Journal 25 (1):111-128.
    The aim of this article is to analyse the issue of “weak separatism” in Latin America as well as to give an answer to the question why there are no significant separatist movements in this region. The authors provide the definitions of separatism and secessionism as well as an explanation of these phenomena. Moreover, they present an overview of historical and contemporary separatist movements in Latin America. Based on Horowitz’s theory of ethnic separatism, the authors attempt to analyse the separatist (...)
