MAGANA GCANTON, Isaac. Anti Humboldt’s Counter-discourse to the North American Free Trade Agreement. Lit. mex [online]. 2020, vol.31, n.1, pp.207-223.  Epub 24-Ago-2020. ISSN 2448-8216.

This paper analyzes five excerpts from the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) that have been subjected to intervention, through a work of erasures and overlays to the original document, which appear in the intervention as a mellow-grey watermark, in Hugo García Manríquez’s Anti-Humboldt. This article aims to read the original document along with the bold words selected by the author in order to extract a sense that challenges the increasingly tightened migration policies on the United States-Mexico border. What this approach produces is a counter-discourse that proclaims for the territorial opening and the decriminalization of the border crossing. This work thus presents an oblique proposal which highlights the segregationist ideology hidden behind the proclamations of freedom and harmony of the agreement.

Palabras llave : Migration Policies; Anti-Humboldt; Poetry; United States-Mexico Border; Hugo García Manríquez.
