LINDSKOUG, Henrik B.  and  MARSCHOFF, María. Dilemmas of modernity: practice and theory of contract archeology in Córdoba, Argentina. Rev. Mus. Antropol. [online]. 2022, vol.15, n.1, pp.00-00. ISSN 1852-060X.

Abstract The archeology of and in the city of Córdoba poses the challenge of combining multiple interests and actors in a professional practice that intersects academia, the private sector and the state in different ways. In this article we describe and reflect on this practice and show how this approach guided us to explore these various positions and initiate new investigations. Amongst other we analyse this context in the search for the establishment of links between academic archaeology and practice under contract, as well as the reflection on the role of archaeology as an agent of heritagization. To execute this, we start taking a critical position towards the discipline that understands archaeology as a product of modernity, that it develops in modern capitalist contexts and at the same time has the ability to study that same modern society. We conclude with some ethical recommendations about working conditions and practical and methodological issues for contract archaeology in Córdoba.
