ABSTRACT
In the post-neoliberal context in which we are, the paradigm that governs the constellation of the Latin American cultural studies has become outdated and it needs to be modified. The author argues that the currents of thought associated with the exploration of the concept of posthegemony represent, in today's Latin Americanism, a form of academic ultraleftism. In this article some of the intellectual and political implications of that position are discussed in relation to the new governments of the "pink tide".
