Caimari, L. (2015). El mundo al instante. Noticias y temporalidades en la era del cable submarino (1860-1900). Redes, 21(40), 125-146. Este trabajo analiza la incidencia del cable submarino en la circulación de noticias internacionales en los diarios de Buenos Aires, entre 1860 y 1900. Luego de describir los rasgos generales de la infraestructura que hizo posible una transformación en los tiempos y la lógica de la disponibilidad de noticias provenientes de lugares remotos, el trabajo analiza el efecto del cable en las nociones de temporalidad. Lejos de constituir un cambio abrupto, argumenta que la aceleración se produjo a lo largo de un período extenso, como resultado de sucesivas combinaciones híbridas de telégrafo y vapor. La noticia internacional telegráfica apareció en la década de 1860, antes de la puesta en marcha del primer cable directo (1874), y recién se consolidó en las páginas de los diarios en la década de 1890. A partir de una concepción de la instantaneidad como horizonte más que como realidad, el trabajo llama la atención sobre la multiplicación de temporalidades de las noticias del “exterior” y las nuevas exigencias de lectura implícitas en este marco. This paper analyzes the effects of submarine communication cable technology onto the circulation of international news in Buenos Aires newspapers, between 1860 and 1900. After outlining the broad infrastructure features that allowed a change into the time and logic of availability of news that came from long distances, the paper analyzes the impact of the cable onto the notion of temporality. It argues that far from being an immediate change, acceleration happened through a long period of time, and it was the outcome of successive hybrid telegraph / steam packet combinations. The telegraphic international news came up in the 1860s, well before the inauguration of the first direct cable (1874), and became consolidated into newspaper pages around the 1890s. Working upon a notion of instantaneity as a horizon rather than a reality, this paper draws attention to the multiplication of temporalities of news “from abroad”, as well as on the new reading demands underlying within this framework.
