Is there uniquely Andean postcolonial theory, and is it relevant for historical archaeologists?

Author(s): Ross Jamieson

Year: 2014

Summary

As postcolonial theory has permeated historical archaeology, it could be said that it has become more and more watered down from its South Asian routes. Historians recognize scholars such as Jorge Basadre and José Carlos Mariátegui as having given voice to a uniquely Andean form of postcolonial inquiry. Does this have relevance for the practice of historical archaeology in the Andes? Or for historical archaeology more broadly?
