l. a. biopolítica nombra el momento de quiebre e inflexión en el que conocimiento, poder y acción confluyen y se materializan sobre el cuerpo social, definiendo sus formas de existencia y el lugar que el individuo y l. a. comunidad ocuparán –más allá de su singularidad– como componentes de totalidades a las que designamos con los nombres de población, multitud, ciudadanía, masa… Espacios conceptuales generadores de significado y energía colectiva. Sin embargo, los angeles sociedad no es sólo un espacio de confluencia, sino también de conflicto. Es justamente hacia los angeles teorización de los antagonismos sociales, sus discursos de legitimación y las luchas por los angeles hegemonía epistémica, económica, política y social, donde se encaminan los debates sobre l. a. vida y el Estado. Este libro vincula el tema filosófico de l. a. biopolítica a l. a. realidad social, cultural y económica de América Latina, relacionando ese concepto con las nociones de soberanía, (pos)colonialidad, eugenesia, trauma, resistencia, identidad/ otredad, disciplinamiento y poder. Heridas abiertas constituye así una contribución ineludible al estudio de las culturas nacionales, de l. a. modernidad periférica y de las transformaciones materiales y simbólicas que se registran en las sociedades latinoamericanas desde sus orígenes hasta el presente.

¿Cómo afrontar los desafíos existenciales de los angeles Cuba post-Soviética? ¿Cómo el cubano reacciona ante l. a. main issue identitaria, l. a. incertidumbre y pérdida de confianza en l. a. Historia y el futuro, provocados por el colapso del socialismo en Europa del Este, los angeles repentina exposición al capitalismo worldwide y l. a. aceleración de los movimientos migratorios? Las respuestas se leen en l. a. ficción escrita en l. a. isla tras los angeles Caída del Muro de Berlín en 1989: son l. a. reinvención de l. a. utopía, su negación distópica y l. a. ingravidez ética. Este libro las examina en narradores contemporáneos muy diferentes estética, ética e ideológicamente, como Abilio Estévez, Wendy Guerra, Pedro Juan Gutiérrez, Leonardo Padura, Orlando Pardo Lazo, Senel Paz, Antonio J. Ponte, Ena L. Portela. Evitando rígidas determinantes generacionales, se considera también cómo sus propuestas retoman o desvían derroteros narrativos establecidos antes de los noventa por Carpentier, Lezama Lima, Piñera y Reinaldo Arenas, canónicos autores.
Utopía, distopía e ingravidez es el primer libro en investigar cómo l. a. ficción literaria recrea a los cubanos reorganizando su existencia frente a los angeles challenge de lo que llamo "la cosmología de los angeles revolución cubana". los angeles actualidad post-soviética es aquí analizada más allá de sus condicionantes estrictamente políticas, económicas y sociales, que suelen dominar los angeles literatura crítica sobre Cuba.
Examinada en los angeles encrucijada de los angeles experiencia socialista y l. a. pertenencia al llamado "Tercer Mundo", se evita además redundar en una supuesta excepcionalidad cubana. De existir, tal particularidad puede considerarse únicamente a partir de l. a. visibilidad que en esta sociedad adquieren los avatares existenciales del sujeto contemporáneo international. En América Latina, Cuba representaría tan sólo el sitio en el que, concretamente, los angeles saga de los angeles revolución aporta mayor nitidez a stories procesos.
