Archaeology and Photography: A Pragmatology: A Pragmatology

Connie Svabo, Michael Shanks

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


This chapter is an exploration of meta-archaeology. We consider some of the premises, dispositions, infrastructures of archaeological practices, where the archaeological is no longer a substantive, but adjectival, an aspect of things and doings, where archaeology is part of the trans-disciplinary field of pragmatology, which aims to understand things in their making.
