The language of a populist revolution. Politics, history and heros in venezuelan emancipation. Abstract I have been here at Essex last year talking on Venezuela and its political process. At this opportunity I developed an approach based on the political and social imaginary of the current situation. I dealt with a couple of concepts: imaginary and populism. Today in my paper, I will attempt to develop same approach but from two different perspectives, namely: the problem of revolution, its hegemonic and totalitarian logic, and the problem of discourse. If last year I put my first analytical stone on populist order and its particular logic of articulation of social subjects, today I will try to delineate the main elements through which a new revolutionary hegemonic discourse is been constructed in Venezuela since 1999. And it seems to me very important to talk about revolutionary discourse because in nowdays in Latin America we can see a kind of resurrection of it.
