Abstract

HARAMBOUR, ALBERTO. FICTION, TRUTH, LIES: SHORT STORY OF A CHRISTMAS AND BOXING SONG IN TIERRA DEL FUEGO (LATE 19 th CENTURY). Magallania [online]. 2017, vol.45, n.2, pp.55-66. ISSN 0718-2244.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22442017000200055.

This article presents a popular song which situates its narrative in Tierra del Fuego during the second half of the nineteenth century. The vectors of conditions of possibility and historiographic veracity of the sung story for apprehending the social experiences of the colonial space are analyzed. As a hypothesis, we argue that the global circulation of popular music allows the accumulation and transformation of misleading experiences within the same original set of information.

Keywords : travel literature; Tierra del Fuego; folk music; irish folklore; microhistory; historiography.
