For more on this topic refer to chapter 4 of this dissertation. Producer Daniel Mallo, Gradually, more mothers, and grandmothers, joined and every Thursday at , they peacefully and silently march in Plaza de Mayo in Buenos Aires, holding signs demanding to have their family members returned to them as often the kidnapped had children who were stolen and subsequently given to members of the military to raise as 85 thought, murder by manipulation of the masses, murder of identity by fear, and the classic, murder of the body.
In the main body I delineate the historic period on which I focus, discuss aspects of relevance to understand the phenomenon that Mafalda has become such as identifying the readership, the effects of censorship and resistance, and the true meaning of soup, as well as discussions on the cosmopolitan nature of the comic and its authority as a witness, and, consequently, as an historical source for research.
I analyze select strips that showcase those discussions, some in the main body when this does not obstruct their own, and demanding information about their murdered children. They have created a genetic bank to locate family members, usually grandchildren who are often unaware of their having been taken from their murdered parents.
Mafalda and Soup That Mafalda hates soup is a known fact to all her readers. While a consensus exists that soup is a major theme in Mafalda, divergent hypotheses as per its concrete message abound. Mafalda feels the trust she had in her mother as her protector has been betrayed as Raquel serves her daughter soup as source of nourishment, literally feeding her with it.

Unfortunately, Dr. This is the little stick that dents ideologies. Her political power is—still today—such, that appropriation of the character has been a recurrent phenomenon since her creation by Quino.
On July 4, , a military squad of the Fuerzas de Seguridad del Gobierno cold bloodedly murdered three priests and two seminary students at the San Patricio church in the Belgrano neighborhood in Buenos Aires. Mafalda had been appropriated and used against the very people who enjoyed her soul saving humor as an instrument of terror.
Mafalda utilized as political tool was already an insult to Quino—and his audience—but this was amplified when an adulterated version of the same comic was produced. Figure 3. It showed an adulterated image of Manolito pointing at the famous police baton, i. Full analysis and discussion of this image following this statement in main body below.

See Andrade, Usaron a Mafalda. DOI: The fact that Quino chooses a turtle to embody bureaucracy adds elements of humor as well as truth to the strip as it denotes the slow motion of bureaucratic processes, a theme that is here reinforced by the alluded air of aloofness with which the turtle responds when it keeps Mafalda waiting for four panels out of six when all the little girl is seeking is to feed it. On the streets of Buenos Aires, tourists and locals alike can purchase a multitude of Mafalda products such as shirts, bags, magnets, key chains, and pen holders.
She continues to live also through these items.
Both Mafalda and Mafalda have grown and become larger than life. For images of the statue, see section on Mafalda as cosmopolitan in the present chapter. It is still historical because he was writing and creating history that was going to be looked at as such later on. This is exactly what makes Mafalda lend itself so well as educational material that can be applicable to a wide variety of courses, namely, in the field of linguistics: Spanish language instruction, with the possibility, in applied linguistics, for a comparative linguistic course on sociolonguistics or translation.
In history and sociocultural fields, the strip is applicable in a course on Argentine history, culture, cultural and social history, or a section on Argentina in a wider course on the Riverplate, Southern Cone or Latin America.

Identity, strongly related to a social sense of belonging, is used in Mafalda as discursive device to critique the social codes of the time. Immigration waves into Argentina saw a great number of European immigrants in the twentieth century. Society in Argentina is one markedly affected by the dynamism of migratory waves, both inward as well as outbound. Whiteness, blackness, mestizaje, or indigeneity are shifting, conjunctural social positionings whose meanings and boundaries are arbitrary, negotiable, slippery, and policed.
The response of the Spanish colonizers to the existent racial and cultural plurality of XVIII century Riverplate was to segregate the different ethnic groups according to their arbitrary categorization, which planted the seed for a social construct of race that will remain in place for generations to come.

Christian Smith and William R. Kenan, Jr. New York and London: Routledge, , The Meaning of Being Cosmopolitan Cosmopolitanism understands the inherent egalitarian quality of the human condition that seeks to learn from other cultures instead of perceiving them as a threat, seeks to intensify and increase mutual respect and compassion among peoples and extinguish sectarian opinions and behaviors.
Though a moral position, cosmopolitanism has resulted in the creation of international bodies of law such as the United Nations or the Claims Resolution Tribunal that act as enforcers of the maintenance of human rights transnationally.

Bhabha, Carol A. Mignolo, The Many Faces, See Appiah, Cosmopolitanism, Ethics, xv, In Mafalda, Quino dissolves the accident of birthplace into an emulsion of universal dimensions as they are naturally infused with central moral facets with that rightful claim on our conscience. Although Quino had painted his local picture, the themes were universal, such as injustice, war, and bureaucracy, as well as censorship and political change or stagnation, among others.
Wherever Mafalda went, she incarnated local issues across borders. It lent the strip with political power: the audience listens to Mafalda because the comic unmistakably shows the daily truths with a bittersweet humor that makes the readership both smile—at times, in complicity—as See Appendix.
Historian Yuval Noah Harari investigated the relationship between experience and authority in regards to credibility of witness reports and its effect on the understanding of historic events. Cosse, Mafalda Historia, back cover. The ideas represented in the comic are authenticated by contemporary flesh-witnesses that are simultaneously part of the readership. However, at least in the very beginning, the publications in which the strip was published also influenced who this readership was going to be, where the vortex of the Mafalda phenomenon was about to begin.
Quino explains that Mafalda was born out of a request by an advertising agency on behalf of the well-known home appliances company Siam, who had decided to market its regular products under a new name: Mansfield. Quino is unaware of the reasons, but the Mansfield campaign never came to fruition and was abandoned by the mother company.
Until Peanuts, characters manifested only one or two characteristics. Where Schultz especially innovated was in endowing his characters with naturally conflictive abilities that humanized them: they were able to hate and love, they were good and bad, and they were capable of anger. Furthermore, he made the strip more tangible and real by changing the graphics: when the characters yelled, the font was bigger to denote both volume and the accompanying emotion. Umberto Eco specifically refutes resemblances between Mafalda and Peanuts and contends that while the latter deals with the interior of individuals and lacks the presence of adults, Mafalda projects itself toward society as well as toward other members of said society, and children measure themselves with and emulate the adults in their lives and surroundings.

Its sales rates sky-rocketed fast, and remained very high throughout the years till the present day, where the strip still ranks at the top positions for sales with thousands of copies being sold every year in Latin America alone. By , this very same first compilation had sold hundreds of thousands of copies. Multiple editions of all compilations of Mafalda have been published, and sold. In Argentina alone, sales of Mafalda compilation books is estimated at 20 million copies. See Cosse, Mafalda: Middle, , See Quino, Quino: Si no Dejaba.
For examples of the middle class theme in Mafalda, and analysis, see Appendix C. For the readership, what Quino did say through Mafalda resonated—and still does—with the great part of the public opinion that was against dictatorship.

An additional major decision followed the first, and Quino left Argentina shortly after. Never having found out who had kicked his door open or the reasons behind it, Quino felt his life was threatened and opted to find safe haven abroad. I give old age a political sense. It is as if all of a sudden Pinochet descends upon you and starts to forbid things to you As a vehicle for Quino to positively communicate with the public, even when alluding—subtly or bluntly—to negative aspects of Argentine reality, which Ibid.
Through identification of the readership with Mafalda, a bond between the audience and the comic strip was born and reinforced with time. Though a fictional character, Mafalda, embodying the other fictional characters in her gang, not only transcends synchronic cultural and idiomatic boundaries; it diachronically transcends sociocultural and political boundaries that translate into transcending coordinative boundaries of time and place as if Mafalda belonged to a different dimension where entities live beyond the linearity of time and space as routinely perceived by daily human reality: the dimension of ideas, that realm of timelessness where ideas live, ever so valid and applicable to the daily reality produced by some aspects of human nature such as power, violence, injustice, war, poverty, racial and gender discrimination.
Social identity, strongly related to a sense of belonging, is a discursive device present in Mafalda that critiques the social conventions of the time.

Providing the readers with a sense of hope, Mafalda offers safe passage through the storm as she dares say what the audience cannot: calling out injustice, racism, and inequality, and standing up to tyranny in the form of authoritarianism and state terror. Able to bring a voice to the repressed, intelligently weaved in masterfully crafted humor, Mafalda rapidly acquired lasting authority and power to communicate with the audience and offer comfort and refuge across time, space, and culture.
Due to that very same authority and credibility, the strip has proven itself more than worthy as an historical source to study a myriad of subjects from authoritarianism, censorship, and social issues of Argentina during the ss that are still relevant today as governments still feed citizens that soup Mafalda so cares to resist. Mafalda is a classic of iconic caliber simply because she is everyman. His work is an example which we take as a lesson. See Gell, Art and Agency, 20, A process of symbiotic? The process of identification starts simple: sameness or similarities, i. Similarly, audiences identify more with heroes than with villains.
