Abstract [es]

Este trabajo propone un acercamiento doble a la novela La Revuelta de Sonia Montecino, donde pensamos que tanto la teoría queer como el origen mapuche son de gran importancia en la construcción identitaria de la protagonista. Nuestro análisis consiste en un intento de relacionar la búsqueda de una identidad por parte de la protagonista, mediante una subversión del sexo, por un lado, y mediante la vuelta a los ancestros, por otro. La hipótesis principal de nuestro trabajo es que La Revuelta presenta una propuesta alternativa sobre la construcción identitaria femenina. Para abarcar nuestra investigación nos empleamos de diferentes herramientas metodológicas, como la teoría queer desarrollada por Judith Butler y la cultura mapuche sintetizada por el antropólogo Rolf Foerster. Al igual que nos detenemos en los estudios del sociólogo chileno Jorge Larraín que nos sirven para comprender el contexto en el que se sitúa la trama de la novela, asimismo como recurrimos a Genette y Greimas para llevar a cabo un estudio narratológico, dado que nuestro cuerpo de investigación ha sido un texto narrativo.

Abstract [en]

This paper proposes the use of a dual approach of queer theory and the importance of the indigenous Mapuche identity, to analyze the identity construction of the protagonist in the novel La Revuelta. The analysis is an attempt to relate the search for identity by the protagonist, through a subversion of gender on the one hand and the return to the ancestral past on the other. The main hypothesis of our work is that La Revuelta presents an alternative proposal on female identity construction. To execute our research we employ different methodological tools, such as queer theory developed by Judith Butler and the theories on Mapuche culture compiled by anthropologist Rolf Foerster. We also focus on the studies of the Chilean sociologist Jorge Larraín, which allow us to understand the context in which the plot of the novel is set, as well as referring to Genette and Greimas in order to conduct a narratological study.
