SILLA, Rolando. The curse of Zapala: Multiple agencies and temporalities in a continuous invasion process. Andes [online]. 2017, vol.28, n.1, pp.00-00. ISSN 1668-8090.

Usually a distance has been marked between objective space and living space; As well as a distinction between History (true, dispassionate and objective) versus myth (false, subjective and lived). But to what extent space and place on one side, and History and myth on the other, could not at times go into a combined movement that unites them and strengthens them rather than separating them into different fields. In this article I intend to show how in Zapala, a city in the province of Neuquén, the myth explained certain events, injustices and contradictions created in the development of the region's economic and political history. But they also referred to more general and far-reaching problems such as evil, greed, or the pursuit of excessive power. Thus, from the experience of the people who inhabited the city and with whom I interacted, History and myth interpenetrated and formed a continuous sequence. But it was not only a discursive matter. On the contrary, these stories were closely related to the landscape and social relations. It is this combined movement of groups composed of human and non-human what I am going to try to describe.
