The Montevideo Headquarters in the pages of La Tribuna Popular (1911-1923) 2023-06-01T15:23:47-06:00 Daniel Fessler <p class="Normal1"><span lang="EN-US">In this article I intend to study the relationship between a sector of the Montevideo Press and the Capital’s Police Headquarters during the 1910s and the early 1920s of the twentieth century, from a quantitative approach, through the analysis of news related to the crime.</span><span lang="EN-US"> A moment that stood out because of the tension between newspapers and authorities of the time. For this, I focused on <em>La Tribuna Popular</em>,<em>&nbsp;</em>an organ that closely followed the police chronicles and reports , supporting the idea of the growth in the crime rate in the city. Traditionally , its argument was based on questioning criminal law, the administration of justice and especially the functioning of the Montevideo Police force itself. My proposal aims to analyze the relationship of the evening newspaper with two of the most censored chiefs of the period (</span><span lang="EN-US">Juan Antonio Pintos and Virgilio Sampognaro)&nbsp;</span><span lang="EN-US">until the change of course which was produced by the assumption of Gómez Folle in the year 1923.</span><span lang="EN-US"> The present work confirms the impact that the permanent preaching through editorials and articles dedicated to tracking and monitoring criminal information had. That impact eroded the prestige of an institution systematically presented under the qualifier label of madness or insanity.</span></p> 2023-07-01T00:00:00-06:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Some Reflections on the Identification of the Concept of Childhood among the Ancient Nahuas based on Colonial Documents 2023-06-01T15:30:16-06:00 Alejandro Díaz Barriga Cuevas <p style="font-weight: 400;">This paper focuses on the main aspects to consider in the historical research on pre-Hispanic Childhood based on colonial documents. I analyze the mentality of the chroniclers, the different ideologies they had, the life cycles, and the models they followed to write their works, in which they described the Indigenous childhood using their own parameters. Also, I include some examples that show how Indigenous people incorporated Western models in the descriptions of their own past. Finally, I analyze the words that the Europeans used to define children, some of which have different meanings nowadays.</p> 2023-07-01T00:00:00-06:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## «Voices, Registers and Actions of Childhoods in Historical Narratives».
