De nouveaux éditeurs « indépendants » en Amérique du Sud : émergence, modes d''action, enjeux : Le cas de l'Argentine, du Chili et de la Colombie

Abstract : This research examines small independent literary presses that have emerged in Argentina, Chili, and Colombia mainly since the 1990’s. These presses, dominated by the same transnational publishing corporations, subsist in a context where public subsidies are scarce. They are characterized by their conception of books being primarily cultural goods and by the vocational aspects of their profession. This perspective allows them to differentiate themselves from a publishing industry that is perceived as being more and more regulated by requirements of financial profitability. Notwithstanding, small presses continue to face important economic difficulties and have to confront themselves to the complexity of integrating the book market.Based on the analysis of 25 small presses from the three countries mentioned above, this work aims to examine how theoretical principles — like the concepts editorial independence and cultural diversity, for instance — help articulate the idea that the book, understood as a cultural and symbolic good, has to draw away from economic financialization. Above all, this research analyses the conditions of emergence of small presses and the courses of action and strategies used to perennialize their publishing activity. This analysis reveals the diverse positions and movements of these presses in the publishing field as well as the repercussion that they have in the dominant and ‘indie’ circuits, which allow them to differentiate and stand out by their different organizational, editorial and commercial strategies.
