Archeology as Memory Practice and the Archeologization of Politics

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelpeer review

Abstract

In recent years the discipline of archeology has increasingly come to realize the political contexts of dealing with the past. This has brought archeology into contact with the neighbouring disciplines of history, anthropology and political science which have a longer disciplinary tradition in dealing with the "politics of memory". Clearly enough, archaeology is itself a kind of memory practice. What does that mean for the discipline?
And in what ways can politics influence archeological work - and vice versa?
