An archaeology of the contemporary era

AuthorsGonzález-Ruibal, Alfredo
Issue Date26-Jun-2019
CitationInternational Scientific Conference: Archaeology in the 21st Century (2019)
AbstractArchaeology has transcended the temporal limits traditionally accorded to the discipline and now explores the recent past and even the present. Emphasis is no given to the relations between time, things and people, rather than to an idea of antiquity. In this talk, I will provide an outline of the archaeology of the contemporary past, describing its potential but also its problems. The archaeology of recent times faces important challenges from an ethical, political and epistemological point of view. Ethical in that contemporary archaeology works with living people and on sensitive issues; political because it often addresses questions that are of wide public relevance and at the same time divisive; and epistemological because it dissolves some of the basic tenets of the discipline. Important questions that I will explore include: Why an archaeology of our times and why know? What are its methodological challenges? How do we define our era from an archaeological point of view and how is it related to other periods?
