CAETANO HARGAIN, Gerardo. José Vasconcelos and his Visit to Uruguay in the 1920s. Secuencia [online]. 2011, n.80, pp. 109-130. ISSN 0186-0348.
The text concerns José Vasconcelos's visit to Uruguay during a trip to four countries in South Américas Southern Cone (Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Uruguay), which subsequently gave rise to his famous book, ha raza cósmica. Misión de la raza iberoamericana. Notas de viajes a la América del Sur. For a number of reasons, Vasconcelos harbored particular expectations about his brief stay in Uruguay. However, given his ideas and projects, it is safe to assume that his direct encounter with the actual Uruguay would have been more conflictive than he expected. The text deals with this little-known stage of Vasconcelos's well-publicized journey and explores the reasons behind certain debates and striking incompatibilities triggered by the specific experience of the visit.
