HABER, Alejandro F. y LEMA, Carolina. Dime cómo escribes y te diré quién eres: Textualizaciones del campesinado indígena de la Puna de Atacama. Mem. am. [online]. 2006, n.14, pp. 119-137. ISSN 1851-3751.
Archaeological and ethnohistorical textual practices regarding indigenous peasantry are analyzed. Both disciplines, along their history, have defended their own specific methods of approaching the past against the methods of the other. We intend to show how, despite the differences noticed on those discussions, both disciplines are based on common cultural biases about their subject matter. For analytical purposes we use different texts from archaeology, history or ethnohistory of the Atacama Plateau from the Castilian Conquest to the twentieth century, which are also confronted with the results of our own research. It is argued that academic discourses tell us more about who writes than about who is being described.
