1921: ¿qué modelos heroicos para el centenario de la independencia centroamericana?

Abstract : Independence and unionism go hand in hand in Central America. At least, this is what the 1921 commemorations tried to reaffirm, despite the failure to rebuild the political union. A study of the heroic models that were celebrated in these festivities allows us to highlight the social projects in conflict, both at the national and regional levels. On the one hand, official heroes are updated; on the other, new figures are incorporated into the pantheons in an attempt to challenge an exclusive and homogeneous vision of the nation inherited from the 19th century. The circulation, negotiation and appropriation of heroic figures are studied here mainly through newspaper articles and school textbooks.
