PeerReviewed

En el trabajo que sigue propongo demostrar que la memoria de la figura y obra de Josefa Acevedo está fuertemente imbricada con la memoria, o más bien desmemoria, histórica de Colombia, y el olvido de la entidad política e identidad colectiva llamada Nueva Granada. El nombre de Nueva Granada significó, por lo menos hasta el siglo XX, una ideología y programa política específica - el republicanismo democrático constitucional representado por Francisco de Paula Santander, que luchaba contra del centralismo de Bolívar, la Gran Colombia, y los conservadores. El reconocimiento de los méritos de la familia Acevedo, incluido Josefa, dependía por lo tanto de las fortunas del partido liberal.
