Spanish term or phrase: servir intereses que no pasan por la especifidad de sus operaciones de discursos
chilean cultural critic again, talking about Fondart-Davila

... confirma la funcionalización político-administrativa de la cultura llamada a servir intereses que no pasan por la especifidad de sus operaciones de discurso ni de sus enfrentamientos de códigos; la ubicacíón de lo simbólico-cultural en un plano de subordinación y exterioridad respecto a lo político que le niega protagonismo de desplazamientos e interpelaciones críticas en la escena social.

is this not accepted due to, or pass through, or what? I'm stuck on the "no pasan por la especifidad..."

Thanks

Explanation:
For the sake of style I would eliminate translating ´´operaciones´´ since that part may be understood with ´´discourse´´ alone...so the sound of it won´t be so heavy on the ear...
