RAMIREZ, Xochiquetzaly Yeruti de Avila; JIMENEZ, Jaime Sebastián F. Galán  y  BERLINCK, Manoel Tosta. Vestiges of transgression at Mexican celebrations. Trivium [online]. 2013, vol.5, n.2, pp. 65-75. ISSN 2176-4891.

Following the tradition of sociological texts this article is a reflection on melancholy traces masked in each of the Mexican celebrations. In order to give context to the conjectures developed here, psychoanalytic and literary sources were revised, bringing theoretical support that they are commemorations in which past and memory have a fundamental role, and they are also crossed by the archaic heritage of one transhistorical element of maniacmelancholic alternance: vestige of the transgression. The analysis illustrates that in Mexican celebrations there are obvious intermittences between two forms of repetition, on the one hand joyous triumph and on the other dishonor from violation. It can be concluded that in disguise of party and joy there are melancholy traces that masks the vestiges of the transgression.

Palabras clave : Vestige, transgression; melancholy; Mexican celebrations; trans historical heritage.
