GRAMUGLIO, Maria Teresa. Sur: a cosmopolitan minority on the western periphery. Tempo soc. [online]. 2007, vol.19, n.1, pp.51-69. ISSN 0103-2070. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-20702007000100004.
This article explores the conditions and dispositions that enabled the emergence of the magazine Sur and the formation of the cultural group of the same name. It sets out the criteria for a periodization that takes into account, along with material factors, the shifting historical and cultural circumstances experienced by the publication over its 60-year life-span (1931-1991). The text highlights some of the main ideological and aesthetic themes to have filled the magazine's pages. It describes the original project and the transformations introduced by its chief editor, Victoria Ocampo, as well as the changes in the relations and problematics of the intellectual field.
