Sites of Difficult Memory: The Haciendas of Chimborazo, Ecuador
Author(s): Ross Jamieson
From the 17th century until the land reforms of the last fifty years, hacienda agriculture dominated the highland region surrounding Chimborazo, Ecuador. Many of the central building complexes of these operations now stand as ruins on the landscape. Through interviews, historical research, and site survey, I explore the role that these ruins play as silent witnesses to a difficult past for rural indigenous communities today.
