Chilean Evangelicals As Cultural Citizens
- Evgenia Fediakova
Keywords: cultural citizenship, Christians without religion, critical right, evangelicals and politics.
Dince the return of democracy, the Chilean evangelical world has undergone important changes, such as the reconsideration of its relations with the military regime, an increase in socioeconomic and educational level, and the consolidation of its status as a recognized actor in the country's political-social life. These transformations determined the formation of evangelicals as a "cultural citizenship" that was clearly aware of their demands, specific rights and new political activism. At the same time, the Chilean religious field is in a permanent process of diversification, deinstitutionalization and individualization, giving rise to multiple non-traditional forms of expressing beliefs.
Evangelicals and political power in Mexico: reconfiguring alliances and antagonisms
- Cecilia Delgado-Molina
Keywords: evangelicals and politics, feminism, Mexico, populism.
Recause of the historical conditions that configure it, in this text I address the emergence of the evangelical political subject in Mexico based on the analytical proposal of Joanildo Burity in his article "The evangelical people: hegemonic construction, minority disputes and conservative reaction". Making use of his approach on the populist moment, I argue that this emergence only acquires its full meaning in interactions with the political field and in relation to the state of its relations, and I reflect on the articulation of evangelicals and politics in the face of feminism as an antagonist.
