MOLINA, Eugenia. Saberes, territorio y estatalidad: Departamento Topográfico y agrimensores en Mendoza, 1850-1860. Av. Cesor [online]. 2020, vol.17, n.23, pp.1-2.  Epub 05-Dic-2020. ISSN 1514-3899.

This paper addresses the creation and early years of the Survey Department along with the regularization of the surveying in order to reflect upon the dialectic relationships between knowledge, territory and statehood from an empirical framework. Original and published sources produced by the central government are used to show how the institutional work was mainly oriented to the public work and the accumulation of blueprints and sketches that “produced” the provincial space. However, this did not have an effective impact on the building of a registry with tax purposes. Compared to contemporary cases, this one shows how the bureaucratic area that was meant to provide informational capital to the provincial States actually developed different dynamics according to the material and human resources, meeting specific contextual needs.

Palabras clave : surveying; territorialisation; statehood; knowledge.
