El tránsito vacilante plantea un estudio minucioso de las más recientes tendencias estéticas y temáticas en la cultura venezolana contemporánea. La antología reúne doce ensayos fundamentales para una mejor comprensión de la diversidad discursiva de las prácticas culturales del nuevo milenio.
Esta colección recoge un amplio abanico de acercamientos teórico-críticos al quehacer cultural producido tanto en Venezuela como en la diáspora. El tránsito vacilante es el primer esfuerzo colectivo dedicado a investigar la representación de un periodo histórico —marcado por importantes cambios sociales y políticos desencadenados con el advenimiento de la Revolución bolivariana— en la literatura, el cine y las artes plásticas.

This book constitutes a detailed study of the most recent aesthetic and thematic trends in contemporary Venezuelan culture. The volume includes twelve critical essays by leading international scholars that explore a wide array of subjects from diverse theoretical perspectives. El tránsito vacilante is the first collective attempt to examine the discursive representation—in literary, cinematic, and other visual practices—of the convulsive social and political changes introduced by the Bolivarian Revolution.
